Best Plugin to optimize Image
There are hundreds of plugins available in the market but I prefer WP smush as one of the Best plugins to optimize the image.
Why to Optimize image ?
Image optimization is necessary for site speed and IF your website images are not optimized then it will take too long to load the website. If your website has a low or average score then it is not a good sign for SEO. According to a survey if a website doesn’t have a score more then 90. Then it’s not good for search engine ranking.
WP smush has a Pro and free version and both work perfectly. This plugin will automatically optimize your image whenever you upload and even you can also optimize older images.
The Free version WP smush doesn’t require to create an account, Free version allows you to optimize max 50 older images. and if you want to do more optimization then you have to buy a premium version.
