We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 998 ms and then it took 2.3 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is quite a good result, as only 40% of websites can load faster. This domain responded with an error, which can significantly jeopardize rating and web reputation

Page optimization

  • HTML 218.9 kB
    Images 378.6 kB
    Javascripts 360.0 kB
    CSS 243.1 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 1.2 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. Images take 378.6 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 218.9 kB
    • After minification 218.4 kB
    • After compression 37.1 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 181.7 kB or 83% of the original size.

    • Original 378.6 kB
    • After optimization 356.2 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. Common Sense Canadian images are well optimized though.

    • Original 360.0 kB
    • After minification 357.7 kB
    • After compression 115.8 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 244.2 kB or 68% of the original size.

    • Original 243.1 kB
    • After compression 72.6 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 170.5 kB or 70% of the original size.

Possible request optimization













Poor result

IP address uses IP address which is currently shared with 4 other domains. The more sites share the same IP address, the higher the host server’s workload is. It is strongly recommended that the host server should be changed or the hosting provider should be requested to give a different (separate) IP address for this domain.
