We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 275 ms and then it took 3.6 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is a poor result, as 60% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 26.4 kB
    Images 668.4 kB
    Javascripts 107.1 kB
    CSS 38.1 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 839.9 kB. This result falls beyond the top 1M of websites and identifies a large and not optimized web page that may take ages to load. 35% of websites need less resources to load. Images take 668.4 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 26.4 kB
    • After minification 22.5 kB
    • After compression 5.5 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. This page needs HTML code to be minified as it can gain 3.9 kB, which is 15% of the original size. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 20.9 kB or 79% of the original size.

    • Original 668.4 kB
    • After optimization 633.8 kB

    Image optimization

    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. PIMS Math images are well optimized though.

    • Original 107.1 kB
    • After minification 99.9 kB
    • After compression 39.4 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 67.7 kB or 63% of the original size.

    • Original 38.1 kB
    • After minification 27.3 kB
    • After compression 8.5 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. needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 29.5 kB or 78% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 66 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 91% of them (60 requests) were addressed to the original, 5% (3 requests) were made to and 3% (2 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (1.1 sec) belongs to the original domain

Additional info on


The browser has sent 64 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of PIMS Math. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 10 to 1 for JavaScripts and from 14 to 1 for CSS and as a result speed up the page load time.

Social Sharing Optimization

Open Graph description is not detected on the main page of PIMS Math. 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:
