Site Loading Time (and size)





Scott
My site's front page is about 150k in size, I was told by "web site analyzing software" that this was waaay too much. It said that would take about 30 seconds for a 56k user to download. I have also made a 107k version of my site, which sacrifices some quality in the images. I might even be able to get it lower than that, but the quality would be much worse. I also have bandwidth to take into consideration, 150k means only about 50 unique visits a month (actually less, because people delete their temporary files).

So I'm not sure what to do.

Here are the two versions of the site (so far), the first is 150k, the second is 107k.

http://sgn.frihost.net/sgn/final/index2.html(notice the fuzzyness of Link on the banner)




EDIT: I completely messed up those unique visit calculations.

10gigs = 10 000megs = 10 000 000k. Right?
10 000 000/150 = 66 666.7 semi-unique visits. (Once again, if a user clears their temporary files, it's another visit, so it's a bit less)

Man, I love freehost. I'm not as worried about this size thing anymore. Still though, give your opinion on loading times.

they both come out as 2.63kb each for me Confused which of course is good

Scott,

Check out this site - http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/

^Aye, that site tells me it takes 30 seconds for a 56ker to load, which is way too long. I wonder if it is right.

Actually that seems about correct. Just to doublecheck, I cleared my cache and then reloaded IE and then loaded this URL:

http://sgn.frihost.net/sgn/final/index.html

...which is your 150 KB page. I'm on 56K dialup and guess how long it took to see the 'Done' message in the status bar?

30 seconds on the nose.

The first was 150k (The one you loaded up.). Well, it's good to have a reliable figure now. 30 seconds is way too much, I'm going too have to use the 107k version, or something even smaller.

Thanks for checking.
