    Since now page load speed is very important for SEO, I would like to ask this:

    For a wordpress salespage, where is it better to host the graphics?

    Is it better to host them together with the wordpress files (in Hostgator, Hostmonster, Bluehost etc.) or is it better to host them remotely in a service that is specifical for images?

    thanks

    Great question gvncerri,

    Your best option will be to host them yourself and serve them as scaled images. So make sure your image sizes are the same as they will be displayed on-screen for the user.

    Having them hosted on another website will cause increased http requests when your site loads which will slow it down. The less http requests the better.

    Here are also some other great tips for speeding up your site. More tips on images are towards the middle,

    Hope that helps,
