Fat websites!


An article in our sister site at AccountingWEB reports on a survey by ZDNet which accuses too many web pages of being too big and driving customers away.

HR related websites are regularly reviewed in the HR Zone’s newswire HR Briefing, and the pattern to date is that many are way overweight.

Heavy web pages result in slow download times which in turn lead to turned off viewers, and as sure as eggs is eggs, turned off viewers will turn away.

For anybody wondering, the HR Zone home page has a lean 24Kb size, and the TrainingZONE home page a superfit 28Kb. ZDNet suggest an optimum median size of 60Kb, compared to their survey findings of an average 89Kb.
