    Hello, what do you think about using this plugin for protect - keep up to date - and speed up the site?
    There are risks to lose ranking if images on my site are not uploaded on my site but on wordpress cdn?

    I use it on some sites, but you have to modify the settings to your need (I only use the secure feature)

    It makes many things very comfortable, but is a huge resource hog with loads of features you probably never need. I personally prefer targeted solutions instead of these "all-in-one" plugins. Jetpack won't help you with security and speed. For speed, get a good cache plugin and a fast host. If it's an international site or you are facing major problems with DDOS or similar, use a good CDN.

    I stopped using Jetpack a few months ago, and my site loading times improved quite a lot. I probably won't ever use it again, too many features I never used.

    I suggest just get individual (lightweight) plug-ins for features you need.
