The Itthinx LazyLoader plugin provides a versatile lazy loading mechanism for content that may improve page load time and bandwidth usage. Use it on slow content, especially such where external data is loaded like widgets from Facebook, Twitter, AdSense, …
Advanced lazy loading integration
To get a clear idea on how the loader affects loading a page, let’s take a look at the following video which shows the loader in action. You can try the demo yourself here.
It took 44,85 seconds for the complete page to load, but the onload event ocurred at just 2,92 seconds! Without Itthinx LazyLoader’s help, the onload event would have ocurred much later. Site speed is a very important factor in visitors’ experience surfing your site and search rankings. If you’re not sure why this is so important, read more about it in Using site speed in web search ranking, where Google announced “we’re including a new signal in our search ranking algorithms: site speed“.
Better visitor experience
Often ads and other external content slows down the way your main content is presented to your site’s visitors. To visit a site that just takes too long to show the main thing is simply frustrating and usually results in one-time visitors – they’ve had it and won’t come back. The Itthinx LazyLoader helps you to avoid this mistake by letting your main content be presented before slower content is shown.
Content on demand
The content handled by the loader can be presented on demand or always.
It handles more than just images, virtually any widget or content that is placed within itthinx-lazyloader shortcodes.
