Lazyloading images with a noscript fallback. Should I expect any damage in the SERPs? The site is completely thumbnail based. Also should I put a smaller image size in the noscript fallback to increase crawlability? We have nearly 1mil thumbs so it's a decision I'm hesitant to do. The reason why I'm thinking about it in the first place is because we're upping thumbail size about 50% which will add 10% of pagesize.
When using lazy image load make sure:
- Use a technique that keeps the SRC attribute of the tag so it will be transparent to search engines bots. (Many plugins use
data-src.) Just like the when you use
<a>tags for Ajax, you should keep the original
hrefso bots can crawl the target location.
- Use image site maps.
