Do you optimize your images before you load them to your blog or website? This very important step often gets overlooked and can lead to your website loading very slowly.
I totally get it, it's just one more to do in a long list of things you have to do to get a blog post up or a new page created. And if you have several images to load, you just want to get them up as quickly as possible.
But you may not realize what happens to your site when you load lots of images that bigger than you really need - your site slows down to a crawl. When your site is not loading as quickly as it should, this can result in loss of traffic.
