You should prioritize speed over the short-tern drop in traffic. If you really want to avoid that, change the preview image slug to match the full size slug. You won't break the link from Google.
SEO Forum has been developed by a
bot human being. Bots People make mistakes. Therefore, seoforum surely has some bugs and eventually may throw an unexpected error or behave the way it should not.
The best thing you can do in such a scenario:
- Navigate to this thread (Site Issues and Errors)
- Post issue you experienced here.
OR (if you want it to be more of a discussion than a plain issue report)
- Create new thread
- Tag it
Site Issues and Errors
- Post issue in separate thread.
I will do my best to fix it ASAP.
Thank you for reporting!
Issues I found so far:
Blog Active Item in Navbar is wrong. Active should be on the item blog not feed. ![enter image description here](https://i.imgur.com/baPo6JH.png "enter image title here")
Leaderboard has several issues. ![enter image description here](https://i.imgur.com/8MtHk2P.png "enter image title here")
Mobile Navbar is bad designed Make the button to the top and w-100. Also place small items like notifications next to each other instead of below/above. ![enter image description here](https://i.imgur.com/WZILBlX.png "enter image title here")
- some pages go out of the screen size on smartphones
- Stats, Newsletter link in footer is not working (but I think this is on purpose)
:) However the design is quite amazing on desktop and the site looks quite nice!
In general I would say: Websites in the same niche which are not spam definitely increase your rank
However much more important is your own content. If your site in general doesn't have
- good speed
- quality content
- a reason why people should use your site backlinks only won't help you for long.
Hey there, I have the following problem:
- I'm running a stock image website (like pexels.com)
- Currently the website has around 30k images displaying.
- The most traffic comes from Google Images.
The Problem I created the website a few years ago without any knowledge about what I'm really doing. There I didn't do any optimization to the website speed. Today that changed.
If a user uploads an image it will save three images:
- a thumbnail (quite small)
- a preview (little bigger but small)
- the original file (quite big..)
The website is displaying the original image on the 'show' page of each image. These images also ranked in Google.
Now I want to change the large original image to the preview image to optimize the site load. However I did this but the traffic immediately crashed because the site lost almost every rank in google images. ![stastic](https://i.imgur.com/HNsmru0.png "stastic")
I think this is caused by removing the indexed image so I changed it back again to large.
The question What is better now? The site is quite slow with the big images but over the years these images got a quite good rank. Shall I remove it and wait till the preview image is ranked too? Can I still have the large one in google images but displaying the previews for the user?
What do you recommend?
