I am currently 9k/17k bulk smush for my images, will this fix the speed?
What else can I do?
compress your images, then post the result. after that we can check if there anything more to do
If you don't have that many images on your site, you can use http://optimizilla.com/ and reduce the size of the images manually, this has helped to speed up my site immensely.
I have ~6000
In that case, use a tool.
Have your system admin switch your HTTP protocol on the server from http/1.1 to h2... I just did this 2 days ago and it was a 50% reduction in full page render times. I had similar benchmarks to yours so I'd imagine you would see comparable results.
I am using the free cloudflare https on all my sites, will this work?
First use chrome to see if your page is using h2 or http/1.1 ... if it says h2 you are golden.
If not you need your system administrator or your ISP to configure mod_http2 (or similar plugin) for your web server. Then you can verify it is working with web page speed tests:
(these are from my site making this exact change)
I seen the screenshot which you shared, I'm also using the same tool to find the page speed.
#1 Better you open the "Optimize images" (Expand)
#2 They will recommend the size of the images (Which you want to reduce), you can download the image.
#3 And then you upload it in the server, surely the "Page Speed Score" Will improve
Optimize your existing images and add again .. Please add me on skype : werank1 , let us discuss more
How many images are you loading before document complete?
I don't know what platform you're using but can you
a) lazy load them, or
b) spread them over a few subdomains to take advantage of parallel downloading?
This is an old page but some of it is still relevant. https://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html
It explains the advantage of doing that. It's only useful if you have a lot of large images, otherwise the DNS overhead makes it not worth doing. But lazy loading is far more preferable.
The problem that my images have is this
The following images are resized in HTML or CSS. Serving scaled images could save 2.4MiB (97% reduction).
This is only for the home page. How to fix this for all images?
Compress all the images bulk in compressjpeg site and many more sites available to compress mate. It will increase your page speed.
1. you need lazy load if the page is long and have a lot of images.
2. if it is wordpress site, there are many image optimizer plugin available.
3. you need a host with SSD+RAM and located in the region you target. (if your target german, get a german host... etc)
