Many bloggers love posting their photos online through blog posts. Although this is not an issue (especially if you’re a photo blogger, a travel blogger, or a food blogger), uploading way too many pictures can be detrimental to your blog’s health. Big pictures equals bad Blogspot SEO! But why exactly is resizing photos important for bloggers? Here, I count the reasons.
“Oh, what lovely pictures!” This is what you’d want readers to say when they see wonderful photos of your expedition in a far-flung area in Tibet, or if they view photos of a delicious dish that you uploaded on your blog. But what you will hear them say is, “This page is loading too long… I’ll just close the window and move on.” Yikes!
Why Resizing Photos is Important for Bloggers
Bloggers who want their visitors to enjoy their blog posts must always consider their visitors’ comfort before their own. Resizing photos may be tedious, but this is important for a blogger. Below, I explain why.
- You will piss off Google if you don’t resize your photos. Oh, Google just hates slow-loading pages. You will get demoted if you have big photo files in your blog, which is a shame if you’re blogging for profit from Google ads! It’s Mr. Google’s aim to find websites that provide optimal reader experience, which is why it punishes blogs that have unresized photos. Yes, not resizing photos is bad for Blogspot SEO!
