Collapsible Style Information (CSS @import)

- High impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This external style sheet contains a single @import directive to include another style sheet. This causes the browser to make an additional HTTP requests to retrieve the additional sheet. Since this CSS file contains only a single @import you have should include the contents of imported style sheet in the base style sheet. This will reduce the number of HTTP requests required to load the web page improving page load times and decrease bandwidth consumption.

Compressed Content Served With HTTP Compression

- High impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 2

Issue Summary

The resource was delivered by the web server using HTTP compression even though this resource's native format is already compressed. Since this resource was already compressed, using HTTP compression to transmit the resource adds overhead without reducing the size of the data to send to the client. Worse compressing already compressed data can actually increase the size of a resource due to the overhead of additional dictionaries, error checksums, etc. Examples of resources that are already compressed and should not be served using HTTP compression include images (GIF, JPG, PNG, etc) and ZIP files. Solving this issue will reduce bandwidth consumption and server resources while improving page load times.

Unoptimized Image (PNG)

- High impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 12

Issue Summary

This PNG image is needlessly large. This is due to extra data inside the PNG file such as comments or unused palette entries as well as the use of an inefficient DEFLATE compressor. This image can optimized using free tools that would reduce the size of the file without changing or reducing the image quality. These image optimizations are especially important as other optimizations, such as HTTP compression, cannot be applied to images. Optimizing this PNG image will improve server performance while decreasing bandwidth consumption and page load times.

Combinable Image Map

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This HTML page contains a set of separate yet sequential images and hyperlinks. Each image requires a separate HTTP request which increases the load time for this page. This series of <IMG> and <A> tags could all be combined into a client-side image map consisting of a single image with an <IMG> tag and a <MAP> tag. Creating a client-side image map will reduce the number of HTTP requests need to load this web page. This optimization will increase client and server side performance while reducing web server load and decrease bandwidth consumption.

Combinable Scripts

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains multiple <SCRIPT SRC> tag which reference external JavaScript files on the same hostname and sometimes even in the same directory. As such it appears many of these external JavaScript files can be safely combined into a single JavaScript file. By combining multiple external JavaScript files into a single JavaScript file you will reduce the number of HTTP requests the browser has to make to render this web page. Combining these JavaScript files can drastically improve web server performance and page load times while reducing bandwidth consumption.

Combinable Style Sheets

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains multiple <LINK> tags which reference external Cascading Style Sheets. These Cascading Style Sheets can be safely combined into only a handful of Cascading Style Sheets files. By combining multiple CSS files into a single CSS file you will reduce the number of HTTP requests the browser has to make to render this web page. Combining these CSS files will drastically improve web server performance and page load times while reducing bandwidth consumption.

Persistent Connection Terminated

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This HTML page closed a persistent connection. Persistent connections allow a web browser to download multiple resources without having to reestablish TCP and HTTP connections. While server will close persistent connections they should not do so on HTML pages because when an HTML page is requested the browser will most likely make subsequent requests for the resources on the page.

RSS Feed Without Blackout Period (skipDays)

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This RSS Feed is not using the <skipDays> tag. The <skipDays> tag allows authors to define days for a blackout periods when they know they will not be posting new content. Common blackout days are Saturday and Sunday as people or businesses typically do not publish new content over the weekend. News readers will not request the RSS feed during these blackout days. This can lower the amount of bandwidth used to serve you feeds.

RSS Feed Without Blackout Period (skipHours)

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This RSS Feed is not using the <skipHours> tag. The <skipHours> tag allows authors to define blackout periods when they know they will not be posting new content. A common blackout period is 12:00am to 6:00am as people or businesses typically do not publish new content in the middle of the night. News readers will not request the RSS feed during these blackout periods. This can lower the amount of bandwidth used to serve you feeds.

RSS Feed Without Caching (TTL tag)

- High impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This RSS Feed does not use a Time To Live (<ttl>) tag. The <ttl> tag instructs News clients how long to wait before checking requesting the RSS Feed again. Using a <ttl> tag can drastically lower bandwidth especially if the RSS feed is only updated a few times a day or week.

Combinable CSS Images

- High impact

- Difficult to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This resource contains style information will too many individual background images. The browser must make an HTTP request for each background image that is used when rendering the web page. It is not uncommon for over half of all HTTP requests made for page resources to be for CSS background images. You can combine nearly all these background images into a handful of CSS Sprites. This will reduce the number of HTTP requests required to load this page which can significantly improve page load times while reducing web server load and bandwidth consumption.

Dynamically Generated Content (JavaScript)

- High impact

- Difficult to solve

URLs with Issue: 2

Issue Summary

This JavaScript file appears to have been dynamically generated by the website's application tier. This is a common way to automatically minify or combine JavaScript files. However, invoking the application's logic to dynamically create this JavaScript file can be up to 10 times slower than simply serving a static file from the web server's file system. By dynamically generating this JavaScript file offline and then serving the static file you will reduce web server load and improve website performance.

Unparallelized Downloads

- High impact

- Difficult to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This page does not use multiple domain names to take advantage of parallel downloading. Parallel downloading allows the browser to download all the resources that make up a web page faster by downloading them in parallel from multiple hostnames. This will improve page load times.

Cacheable Resource Marked as Private

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This response for a resource (JavaScript file, CSS file, image, object, etc) is using the private caching directive in the Cache-Control HTTP header. The private caching directive means this response can only be cached by a specific user's browser and not by any shared upstream caches such as an ISP or corporate cache. Since this resource contains no personal, confidential, or user specific information there is no reason to use the private caching directive for this response. Removing the private caching directive will allow this resource to be cached which will decrease bandwidth consumption and web server load while improving page load times.

Commented Out HTML

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

A web page contains commented out HTML code. This commonly occurs when a web developer someone wants to hide an old feature or content while still preserving a copy of it for later. While this is helpful to the web developer it harms the performance of the web page as this unused HTML code increases the size of the web page without improving the user experience. You should remove the commented out HTML code or alter it so it no longer appears in the HTML content which is sent to the visitor. This solution will improve page load time while reducing file size and bandwidth consumption.

Common Style Attribute

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This webpage contains numerous HTML tags that use the style attribute to convey styling information for that specific tag. Over 15 of these HTML tags contain the same CSS information in the style attribute. You should move this common CSS information out of multiple style attributes and into a reusable CSS class rule. This will make easier and more manageable to alter the style of this web page later and will also reduce this size of this web page. This solution will decrease bandwidth consumption and improve page load times.

CSS Not Minified (External File)

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 7

Issue Summary

This style sheet contains style information that has not been minified. Minifying style information reduces the size of the style information by removing whitespace and comments allowing for faster download and parsing. This improves page load time and decreases bandwidth consumption.

Excessive HTML Comments

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

A large HTML comment was detected on this web page. HTML comments are not displayed or shown to a user, nor or they processed by Search engine spiders. As such, they add to the size of the page without adding any user experience or SEO value. HTML comments are often used with templating systems. Large HTML comments should be removed to improve page load time while reducing file size and bandwidth consumption.

High Quality JPEG Image

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 27

Issue Summary

This JPEG image was saved with a quality setting greater than 80. JPEG images use a variable level of quality, the higher the number the greater the quality but the larger the file size. However this setting can be deceptive. A quality rating of 90 does not mean "keep 90% of the graphical data." The quality scale is purely arbitrary; it's not a percentage of anything. A general guideline for JPEG images on the web is to use a quality rating of 50-75. This quality range is a good compromise between image quality and file size. Reducing this high quality JPEG will reduce file size, which will decrease bandwidth consumption and improve page load times.

Savings Table

The savings table details how much savings there is in optimizing these resources. We achieved these savings by reducing the quality of the JPEG image to 70.

Image Tags Without Dimensions

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains <IMG> tags which are not using height or width attributes. If the browser knows the height and width of an image before it downloads and renders the image it can continue to render the web page. If the browser does not know the image size it must redraw the web page again after the image downloads. Adding height or width attributes will make this web page render faster.

Image Without Far Future Caching Information

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 3

Issue Summary

The response for this image contains HTTP caching information that allows it to be unconditionally cached on the client. However, this HTTP caching information instructs a visitor's browser to store the image for less than 4 months. Static content like images should be cached until a far future date, typically 6 months to a year, as it rarely changes and when it does change the content's URL changes as well. Using HTTP caching with this image for a date far into the future will reduce the load on the web server, while significantly reducing both bandwidth consumption and page load times.

Inefficent Caching (Vary: User-Agent)

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 28

Issue Summary

This response contains an HTTP Vary header. The Vary header tells shared caches what information was used by the web server to gerenate the response. Because the server is using the browser identification string contained in the User-Agent head the ability of shared caches to serve this response to other users is drastically reduced. Removing the User-Agent value from the Vary and from the server's page generation logic allows efficent shared caching of this response, drastically reducing web server load.

Shared Caching Disabled for CSS (Query String)

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 3

Issue Summary

The URL for this CSS file contains a query string. Query strings are not typically needed when serving static resources like images, style sheets, or scripts. HTTP caches typically will not cache any resource whose URL contains a query string. Removing the query string from the resource's URL will allow caching proxies or load balancers that you own and downstream caching proxies to serve this resource for you significantly reducing web server load and bandwidth consumption.

Unoptimized Resource Location (Script)

- Medium impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This page contains a reference to a external JavaScript file in a suboptimal location. Specifically it contains a <SCRIPT SRC> tag that is not in the bottom 20% of the HTML. Browsers stop drawing the page and will not download any other files when they encounter JavaScript code. Moving <SCRIPT SRC> tags to the bottom of the web page will improve client-side performance.

Dynamic HTML Not Minified

- Medium impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 2

Issue Summary

This web page contains HTML that has not been minified. HTML can contain extra whitespace, comments, unrecognized HTML tags, unminified JavaScript code in <SCRIPT> tags, and unminified CSS data in <STYLE> tags. For this web page, minifying the HTML will reduce the size of the page by more than 5%. Since this appears to be a dynamically generated web page, you should minify the template used by your application for this page. This solution will reduce bandwidth consumption while improving page load times.

PNG8 Candidate Image (Color Count)

- Medium impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 5

Issue Summary

This true color PNG image contains less than 2500 distinct colors. Converting this image from a true color PNG to a palette-based PNG (also called a PNG8) should significantly reduce the size of the image. While PNG8 will not have as many distinct colors as the original image this difference is not usually noticeable for images with less than 2500 distinct colors. Converting this image to a PNG8 will reduce bandwidth consumption and improve page load speeds.

Dynamically Generated Content (Image)

- Medium impact

- Difficult to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This image appears to have been dynamically generated by the website's application tier. Dynamically generating an image using application logic is a common way to create thumbnail images for online photo galleries or catalog websites. However invoking the application's logic to dynamically draw or resize an image file can be up to 10 times slower than simply serving a static file from the web server's file system. Dynamically generated images also do not have performance related HTTP headers such as Last-Modified or Accept-Bytes. These headers allow for conditional HTTP GET requests and for resumable downloads, both of which improve web performance. You should consider drawing or resizing this image offline as a static image file and then serve the static image file instead of dynamically generating the image. This solution will reduce web server load and improve website performance.

<SCRIPT SRC> Without Defer

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains a <SCRIPT> tag which loads an external JavaScript file but it does not use a defer attribute. Using the defer attribute is an easy way to enable parallel downloading of resource for older web browsers like Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3.1. If appropriate, you can use the defer attribute to tell the browser it does not need to stop and wait for this external script file to load before downloading or rendering more content. Care must be taken later <SCRIPT> blocks may use code in deferred <SCRIPT SRC> blocks. Solving this issue will improve page load times and client-side performance.

Adjacent <SCRIPT> Blocks

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains <SCRIPT> tags with JavaScript that are adjacent to each other. Since there is no other content between these multiple <SCRIPT> tags all of their content can be combined into a single <SCRIPT> tag. This solution will slightly reduce page size and bandwidth consumption.

Default ETag Format Detected

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

ETag headers provide web developers with more control over caching web resources. Unfortunately the default values for ETags used by web servers cause problems with load balanced environments, compression and web caches, and overrides more efficient caching methods such as the Expires HTTP header. Unless you are doing something special with ETags consider removing them.

Place Holder Image

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This is a very small image (less than 4x4 pixels) that appears to be used as a place holder image. Place holder images are an obsolete way to control the layout of a page. Use CSS properties like padding, margin, height and width to control padding and place elements. Using CSS instead of place holder images will reduce the number of requests needed to load the page. This will decrease page load time, web server load, and bandwidth consumption.

Unnecessary <META> Character Set

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains a <META> tag using the http-equiv attribute to define the character set used for this web page. However the web server also using the HTTP Content-Type header to define the character set for this web page. Since the browser will ignore any character set information in a <META> tag if there is character set information present in the Content-Type header the <META> tag is unnecessary and can be removed. Removing the <META> tag will slightly reduce page size and bandwidth consumption.

Unnecessary HTTP Caching Header (Pragma)

- Low impact

- Easy to solve

URLs with Issue: 3

Issue Summary

This response is using the HTTP header Pragma to attempt to control caching. Most caching proxies and some web browsers do not use the Pragma header to determine caching information. Since this response also uses the Expires or Cache-Control HTTP header the Pragma header is unnecessary. Removing the Pragma header from this response will slightly decrease bandwidth consumption.

Excessive Absolute URLs (Same Site)

- Low impact

- Challenging to solve

URLs with Issue: 1

Issue Summary

This web page contains a large number of references and hyperlinks to resources on the same host using absolute URLs. Each absolute URLs includes the protocol, hostname, and port number as well as the typical path, filename, and query string information. Since this web page is referenced using the same protocol, hostname, and port number that the absolute URLs use these URLs can be converted from absolute URLs into relative URLs without any loss of functionality. This solution would reduce web page size and bandwidth consumption.
