Fast Loading Websites

Do you want to optimize your website? You can start streamlining your pages.

Recommendations for fast loading pages

  • Separate design from content using external CSS files
  • Use external Script files
  • Remove unnecessary code
  • Optimize your graphics
  • Reuse graphics, external script files and external CSS files across multiple pages

What is the most desired size for your webpages?

There is not an easy answer to this question. You have to consider your needs, what you want to present and who's your target.

But for various reasons an average of less than 75 kilobytes per page is a good choice for most websites.

How to calculate the size of your page?

For the total size consider your html file and its linked images, objects and external css and script files.


No matter if your site's visitors are on broadband, if you put a constraint on the size of your pages, they will perceive your site as a fast loading and quick responding site.
