Click here to check amazing Physics Montana content for United States. Otherwise, check out these important facts you probably never knew about

We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 404 ms and then it took 1.6 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is quite a good result, as only 30% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 41.1 kB
    Images 584.5 kB
    Javascripts 128.4 kB
    CSS 218.5 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 972.4 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. 45% of websites need less resources to load. Images take 584.5 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 41.1 kB
    • After minification 33.3 kB
    • After compression 7.5 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 7.8 kB, which is 19% 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 33.6 kB or 82% of the original size.

    • Original 584.5 kB
    • After optimization 556.8 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. Physics Montana images are well optimized though.

    • Original 128.4 kB
    • After minification 104.7 kB
    • After compression 31.3 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 97.2 kB or 76% of the original size.

    • Original 218.5 kB
    • After minification 201.1 kB
    • After compression 38.0 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 180.5 kB or 83% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 43 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 37% of them (16 requests) were addressed to the original, 26% (11 requests) were made to and 7% (3 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (825 ms) relates to the external source

Additional info on


The browser has sent 36 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of Physics Montana. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 6 to 1 for JavaScripts and from 8 to 1 for CSS and as a result speed up the page load time.









Possible request optimization











Normal 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.

Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Our service has detected that English is used on the page, and neither this language nor any other was claimed in <html> or <meta> tags. Our system also found out that main page’s claimed encoding is utf-8. Use of this encoding format is the best practice as the main page visitors from all over the world won’t have any issues with symbol transcription.

Social Sharing Optimization

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