    Yes, its an SEO advantage if the blog loads faster.

    You can use this plugin to optimize the images on your blog:

    Install wp-smushit wordpress plugin. Activate it.

    Log Into your wordpress dashboard -> got Media -> Bulk Smah It!
    Click on “Run all my images through WP Smush.it right now”

    Don’t worry, if you get some error messages at the end while its optimizing the images.

    This tool will run all of the images in your media library through the WP Smush.it web service. It won’t re-smush images that were successfully smushed before. It will retry images that were not successfully smushed.

    It uploads each and every file to Yahoo! and then downloads the resulting file. It can take a long time.

    We found 25 images in your media library. Be forewarned, it will take at least 1.25 minutes to process all these images if they have never been smushed before.

    N.B. If your server gzips content you may not see the progress updates as your files are processed.

I did download it but have no idea what to do with it…and don’t want to make a mistake (which I do a lot on line). So could you get on my site…I think you no how to get ….. Install. Also, please check my other plug in and let me know if I should be adding any one or deleting. Thanks Satish.
