Notice: Page Size is Too Big

Speed is the critical quality parameter for users and thus for search engines. Faster pages have lower bounce rate and higher rankings in search engines. Though there is no ideal standard page size we recommend it to be within 51200 bytes. How did we come up with this number? Users now more and more tend to be on mobile device. Average mobile device uses 3G connection. 3G connection speed varies between 144 and 400 kilobit per second. To satisfy and impress a user with speed HTML page and blocking referenced resources should load within couple of seconds. We set limit to 500ms and this gives us the size of 51200 bytes on average connection. Moreover if you check your page with google speed test tool it will complain about slow website if your server respond longer than 200ms.
