I have an interactive Wordpress website with multiple animations/images. I wanted to improve Google speed insight results, but keep the site SEO friendly.
The proposed improvement includes lazy loading of the whole sections.
The steps are as follows:
Output the homepage of the site with minimal semantic mark up and barely no styles. The content is hidden behind overlay
The purpose of the point is to provide content for Google robots.
Use AJAX to load main screen which replaces the minimal text.
- Lazy load other sections on scroll.
The purpose of the points is to provide better loading times and user experience.
Is such practice bad for SEO? I mean, does Google penalize it? The text content is not changed.
