"When it comes to incorporating high-quality photography and full-screen photography in websites, JPEG and PNG are the way to go. However, when incorporating visual elements such as logos, maps, charts, icons, and animations, SVGs are scalable, can help to speed up loading time, and can even help with SEO. NY based website development company, Lounge Lizard, Shares three reasons to use SVGs. 

1. The mobile advantage SVGs have a clear advantage over other file formats when it comes to their scalability. SVGs aren't in a raster format making them easily able to scale up or down in size without losing any picture integrity. SVGs are created with a sequence of code-based directives that create sequences of lines on the fly to accommodate any screen size and shape.  

2. Speed it up A major advantage to using SVGs is that they help to speed up loading times. Any large files impact loading speed. SVGs, however, contain less information than other bitmaps because they are constructed by browsers in the moment for various device usage. This automatically helps with loading speed, but additionally, by optimizing SVGs with minification and compression, as you would with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, the file size is reduced and loading speed is further improved. Seeing as loading speed plays a big role in the user experience, SVGs should be utilized when able to provide a better experience for customers.

3. Optimization power Because SVGs are an XML format, or text based, the files are enabled to be indexed for web crawling on search engines. Encouraging indexing is paramount in improving search engine ranking. Whether they are embedded in HTML or are in a standalone file, Tagging SVGs with keywords in the titles can help a brand to move up the search engine ranks for increased visibility.
