Loading images wisely

In order to speed up pages loading, Bablab automatically implements modern technologies when placing big images in pages markup:

  • Lazy-loading images: images are loaded only when the visitor scrolled to the page area they are at.
  • Sizes-loading images: adapting loaded images size to the actual required real-estate on page.

This saves a lot of time for your visitors, and also dramatically reduces page load time, improving your website rank.
Here is an example tag for a Bablab image, part of a gallery page:

<img class="portrait"
data-srcset=" https://link/to/small.jpg 200w,
              https://link/to/medium.jpg 506w,
              https://link/to/big.jpg 724w
data-desc="Chef Jose Avillez in his restaurant"
data-label="Chef Jose Avillez"
data-tags="Restaurant, chef, Jose Avillez"
style="object-fit: cover; width: 100%;"
alt="Chef Jose Avillez in his restaurant. in Lisbon, Portugal">

Notice how several sizes are available (pink), allowing the browser to choose the right size.
Also, the ALT tag (orange) is composed of the data attributes (blue), extracted from the image metadata.


Structured data - schema tags

Structured data is a system that helps search engines categorize and index your content. is a project that provides a particular set of agreed-upon definitions for structured data (microdata) tags.
Bablab implements several schema tags automatically:

  • Organization and Person will associate your website with your social accounts.
  • Website and Breadcrumb enhance the way your website will appear in search results by providing breadcrumb of the navigation path to the page.
  • Images and License Information is added to each gallery page. This tells people seeing your photos on Google images search, that license information is available for the image, and provides a link to the license in the Image Viewer, which offers more detail on how someone can use the image.


OpenGraph and Twitter Card

Facebook Open Graph and Twitter Cards allow businesses to represent their content as rich objects in the social graph. For example, the image and description are displayed when a link is shared in messaging and on the web:

This is beneficial from a branding perspective, as it makes the content on your pages much easier to share and engage with on each of those independent platforms.

Bablab implements both Open Graph and Twitter Cards on all websites.
