We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 305 ms and then it took 5.5 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is a poor result, as 70% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 18.1 kB
    Images 56.8 kB
    Javascripts 393.0 kB
    CSS 131.7 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 599.6 kB. This result falls within a vast category (top 1 000 000) of heavyweight, probably not optimized, and thus slow loading web pages. Only 5% of websites need less resources to load. Javascripts take 393.0 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 18.1 kB
    • After minification 14.4 kB
    • After compression 4.5 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 3.7 kB, which is 20% 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 13.6 kB or 75% of the original size.

    • Original 56.8 kB
    • After optimization 55.6 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. Geophysik Uni Frankfurt images are well optimized though.

    • Original 393.0 kB
    • After minification 393.0 kB
    • After compression 114.3 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 278.6 kB or 71% of the original size.

    • Original 131.7 kB
    • After minification 130.6 kB
    • After compression 23.2 kB

Possible request optimization











Good result


As for redirects, our browser reached this domain in two steps. The first redirect led to, then it was forwarded to, and finally we managed to open this domain. We strongly recommend that the redirects should be reduced, as the more redirects a site has, the slower it loads.

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.

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 8.1% of all visits is India. It lies approximately 4210 miles away from the server location (Germany) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to India or just closer to the user base.
