The Shortpixel service is my new favourite image optimization tool for WordPress websites.
I’ve used EWWW Image Optimizer for a long time and still love it, but Shortpixel has become my new favourite image optimization plugin for WordPress.
I have tried different image optimization tools in the past, and I am sure I will continue to try new solutions, but Shortpixel is an exciting thing with excellent results.
I had heard of Shortpixel at some point before but never bothered to check it out because I was already happy with the solution I had.
Recently the team behind Shortpixel contacted me and asked if I wanted to review the plugin.
They offered me a 10,000 credit package to try it out, but since it’s a relatively low price and I wanted to be unbiased, I bought it out of my pocket.
I have already added a lot more to my account as I will be using Shortpixel more in the future. Let me tell you why.
I tested the registration process, did a comparison test with ten photos on different services and tested the plugin on a few sites. I also tried the plugin on an already optimized site, and the results and experience convinced me.
Do you know a faster website will happy and ranking higher on Google pages?
Starting in July, Google will use page speed as a ranking factor for mobile searches.
There are one of the cheapest ways that are more cost-effective is to downsize
images displayed on your website.
And doing it right, that doesn’t mean reducing the size of the image. You want larger images for better visibility.
However, image files contain a large amount of unnecessary data which, when deleted, reduces file size, allowing your website pages to load much faster without any visually detectable loss of quality.
Before you begin using the plugin, ShortPixel will ask you for an API key, which would have already been sent to your email address when you signed up.
Make sure you can choose your compression level, which tells ShortPixel how aggressively you want to compress your images.
The default lossy settings are fine, but you can choose from the less aggressive bright and lossless options if you wish to high-quality photos.
In addition to the free plan that you can use to test the optimizer, there are other unique monthly plans.
If you only want to optimize a ton of images (no more than 10,000 images at a time), you should try the one-time $ 9.99 plan.
The monthly and one-time plans are suitable for any small business owner looking to optimize their website images.
Increase your website SEO classification, visitors name, and finally, you see the optimization image or PDF document on your website.
ShortPixel is an image optimization plugin that is easy to use, easy to use, easy to install, easy to use and easy to compress, which can compress your images and PDF documents with one click.
New photos are automatically resized/resized and optimized on the fly, in up-plan. This is compatible with the amount of gallery, slider or eCommerce plugin.
Short Pixel uses minimal resources and works well with any shared, cloud, VPS or dedicated web host. You can optimize any image you have on your website, even photos not listed in the media library like those from galleries like NextGEN, Modula or added directly via FTP.
Lossless and lossy image compression is available for the most common image types (JPG, PNG, GIF, and WebP), as well as PDF files.
We also offer brilliant JPEG compression, a very high-quality lossy optimization algorithm.
Optimized images mean a better user experience, better PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix results, better Google PageRank, and more visitors.
However, large businesses can opt for the Dedicated Servers option which gives them a dedicated physical server and for $ 1000 per month they can get up to 16 million optimizations per month.
Overall, ShortPixel offers a robust and easy to use service. The optimized images are smaller in size, but the quality is as good as advertised.
The free plan may suffice for the occasional blogger, but a small business owner with an eCommerce site or blog would still get a decent amount of reasonably priced image credits.
You can Upload the compressed images to your website and take note of the fastest page load speeds.
