Website Optimisation - File Sizes
If your webpage takes an age to download
then it is likely that there is something wrong. This can be caused
by one or more of the following factors:-
- Images too large and / or too numerous
- Poor hosting services
- Bad code structure and / or bloated code (as a result of using
a non proprietary HTML editor like 'Word')
Useability studies show that the total download time for a webpage
should take no longer than 8 seconds and that the total of all files
making up that page INCLUDING IMAGES should be no more than 50K.
Whilst this target is not always possible in practice, it is good
practice to aim for this when designing each page.
