    Images 337.3 kB

    CSS 212.5 kB

    In fact, the total size of Dad.ie main page is 1.1 MB. This result falls beyond the top 1M of websites and identifies a large and not optimized web page that may take ages to load. 75% of websites need less resources to load and that’s why Accessify’s recommendations for optimization and resource minification can be helpful for this project. Javascripts take 474.8 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 120.0 kB
    • After minification 112.8 kB
    • After compression 26.1 kB

    HTML optimization

    HTML content can be minified and compressed by a website’s server. The most efficient way is to compress content using GZIP which reduces data amount travelling through the network between server and browser. HTML code on this page is well minified. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 93.9 kB or 78% of the original size.

    • Original 337.3 kB
    • After optimization 314.7 kB

    Image size optimization can help to speed up a website loading time. The chart above shows the difference between the size before and after optimization. Dad images are well optimized though.

    • Original 474.8 kB
    • After minification 454.1 kB
    • After compression 155.7 kB

    JavaScript optimization

    It’s better to minify JavaScript in order to improve website performance. The diagram shows the current total size of all JavaScript files against the prospective JavaScript size after its minification and compression. It is highly recommended that all JavaScript files should be compressed and minified as it can save up to 319.1 kB or 67% of the original size.

    • Original 212.5 kB
    • After minification 185.9 kB
    • After compression 35.4 kB

    CSS optimization

    CSS files minification is very important to reduce a web page rendering time. The faster CSS files can load, the earlier a page can be rendered. Dad.ie needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 177.1 kB or 83% of the original size.

Lack of Open Graph description can be counter-productive for their social media presence, as such a description allows converting a website homepage (or other pages) into good-looking, rich and well-structured posts, when it is being shared on Facebook and other social media. For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
