Asset optimization means serving the smallest file size possible for images and videos on a website, while preserving an acceptable level of quality. Delivering optimized assets on your website is crucial to keeping the page load time to a minimum, providing a better user experience for your visitors.

Excessive use of embed codes and external scripts is discouraged as this will increase the number of HTTP requests your visitor’s browser has to make to display your website, ultimately hurting your page load time.
