Let’s face it: we live in a world of instant gratification. People are so impatient; if they visit your website and the images do not load quickly, they will leave. It seems that those using a mobile device have even shorter attention spans. When your blog or site fails to load in five seconds, off they go.
Images on your WordPress blog or site are essential; they give visual appeal to content and make the posts or articles on the websites enjoyable to read. Without the use of images, a lot of websites will be boring. When visitors only see a block of text they tend to leave quickly. Images have been known to improve the search engine optimization of websites. ‘A picture speaks a thousand words’ as the saying goes, and this is entirely true for the brain can process photos faster than it processes text.
