    Is it possible to reduce page load time if we enable "Break comments into pages" in WordPress. Why am getting confusion here because I have page load problems. It's not because of bad hosting, however, its because of too many images and two videos. My article was about a case study. Hope you can guess why I can't delete those. There are so many comments as well. One of the method what Wpbeginner suggesting is that enable the check box what I mentioned earlier. But the problem is when am enabled it Yoast notification pops out saying it is not necessary and not recommended ?

    All comments are most welcomed

    Thank you

    Arjun

    It'll only really make a difference if you have thousands of comments on your blog posts.

    It will not make much difference in load speed. There are many wordpress plugins which you can use. Try google

    Use a caching plugin such as WP Rocket if your site is running slow. They have options for Lazy Load and asset minification. We usually shave a few seconds of our clients load time after installing that.

    Hello,

    I think your site have unused plugins. So check and delete unwanted plugins. Also, use the plugins that are listed here.

    EWWW Image Optimizer
    CW Image Optimizer
    SEO Friendly Images
    Imsanity
    PB Responsive Images
    Lazy Load
    WP Smush


    These plugins help to optimize the images on your site. So as you said that your site has many images will be optimized with any one of the plugins listed above.

    Lazy Load is also a plugin which helps to optimize the image well and the loading speed will be high. Just try and experience with it mate.
    Best of luck.

    Hi,
    You should use images that are optimized for the web. You need to consider the image file format and compression.
