    There is no SEO benefit. If Google can't index the content then it can't asses the value of that content.

    Lighter GIFs load faster. And GG it only reads information in image code. Webp image file is better than GIF

    Webp doesn’t animate so it’s not a replacement for a gif.

    GIFs can support a content marketing strategy if used mindfully.

    Yes, but they have no SEO benefit.
