What is Lazy loading?
Lazy loading (also called on-demand loading) is a technique designed to preserve bandwidth and improve loading speed.
Instead of bulk loading (loading all of the page’s content at once), it signals the browser to load only the necessary content that is on display, delaying the remaining sections until scrolled into view.
How Lazy loading helps with your store loading seed
Improve Initial Loading Time
The biggest benefit of Lazy loading is improved page loading time and user experience. By lazy load images and videos, you will reduce the initial page load time, initial page weight, and system resource usage, all of which have positive impacts on performance.
Boost Search Engines Optimization
Lazy loading makes your page load faster, and as all major search engines are favoring page speed as a key factor when ranking your page, Lazy loading will definitely increase your SEO results.
