    Images 1.3 MB
    Javascripts 1.3 MB
    CSS 561.1 kB

    In fact, the total size of Globe.gov main page is 3.4 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. 80% 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 1.3 MB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 163.6 kB
    • After minification 142.3 kB
    • After compression 33.0 kB

    HTML optimization

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 21.4 kB, which is 13% 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 130.6 kB or 80% of the original size.

    • Original 1.3 MB
    • After optimization 1.3 MB

    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. GLOBE images are well optimized though.

    • Original 1.3 MB
    • After minification 1.3 MB
    • After compression 385.5 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 923.8 kB or 71% of the original size.

    • Original 561.1 kB
    • After minification 555.1 kB

Social Sharing Optimization

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