Support » Plugin: Image optimization & Lazy Load by Optimole » The best image optimizer for Google PageSpeed

  • I tested two other 5-star rated and popular plugins for WebP; one didn’t work at all despite numerous attempts and the other was slow in image load, missed some images and added Google Font.

    Optimole has the following qualities:
    – super easy to use
    – excellent compression and speed, boosted my mobile Google PageSpeed score from 75 to 95 (Desktop was 100 already), loading times went from 1.6/4.1/4.7 to 1.6/2.8/3.5, “Defer offscreen images” (lazy-load) and “Serve images in next-gen formats” (WebP) audits are now passed

    I also have 2 objections, which I hope will be addressed in future releases, but current version is good enough to make even such whiner as me stay with this plugin:
    – images with lazy load are blurry mess, it strikes user when it appears, I tried this fix plugin linked in support forum which removes blur, but I didn’t like the effect too much, in my perception visuals were worse than no Optimole at all, so I stick with blur which I hope will be improved to look like a more smooth, gradual fade-in effect
    – there is a short time after installation when images are synced with CDN, please inform user about it and show progress, at start I thought that plugin is simply slow, because images weren’t synced yet
