A Guide to GemPages' Lazy Loading Feature


 This article will explain to you what Lazy Loading is and how to enable the feature in GemPages.



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.


Benefits of Lazy loading

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.
