SiteSpeedLab Overall Website Rating for this website
Based on our speed test results table and considering features of the current webserver location (United states, New york), we concluded
overall This website speed rank is 24. That means 24% of the sites from the New york are slower for visitors than this website.

It is important to understand that you can't evaluate website speed without considering website audience location. You should evaluate the speed of the site considering location of your primary audience (visitors), and not just from abstract tests from various points of the planet. There is a chance that your website is quite slow for visitors from German but pretty quick for Australian users at the same time. Based on a primary audience location data Site Speed Laboratory maintains objective rating. Test servers located in the Usa and Canada are more useful and important to Grandparents.com because the shares of each country are 95.10 and 2.10 percent respectively.

You should not overestimate the importance of the website speed factor. Google has more than 200 ranking factors and website speed is just one of them.

DNS Lookup Speed

Browser should lookup domain name and get IP address of the server (63.240.21.199) before downloading the page. We test DNS resolve for this domain from 5 locations. That's how we've got the average time of receiving IP: 0.15s (which is better than 26% of all sites). For more detailed stats look at DNS tests graph and DNS resolve page for United states, New york location (Average value on the widget is an average DNS resolve time for websites hosted at the same location).

Content-Type's Weights
 
 
Content-Type's Weights by Hosts
 
 
Downloading page itself is the final stage of the testing. Actually, this is the last stage, after which page is displayed completely for user. The download speed depends on many factors. Main factors are the following: the width of the bandwidth up to the domain, the number of simultaneous download threads, speed of the server, a distance between user and domain web server. Recent measurements have shown the speed of page download for this domain is 48.845Kb/s (which is better than 24% of all sites in this region).

Page Speed

Page Speed is a key factor in the website speed estimations (along with DNS lookup speed and website latency). Speed of the page loading, sophisticated subdomains usage for static content (images, css), optimized code (html, js), hosting on fast servers with good latency to its audience leads to good results and, ultimately, to a good website profitability.

While conducting tests we emulate a visit your website using the browser Firefox 3.5.6. Test results of the page loading listed in this table:

Ways to improve website performance

Once the document (website's main page) has been downloaded, we analyze it. It allows us to give webmasters some recommendations on how to optimize page load speed. We analyze the internal and external factors.

Reduse DNS Resolve

Browsers must resolve site's hosts to display all of the elements of the Grandparents.com's page. Every domain name resolve requires a time, which precedes the load from a specific domain. You can speed up page loading by reducing the number of hosts, from which elements of the page are loaded.

Combine Small Images Into One

To display a page, a browser needs to load a lot of small images. Try to combine images into one and display them via CSS. This technology is called 'CSS Sprites'. It helps you reduce the number of requests to the web server, which in turn also requires time and bandwidth. For more details about this technology read our manual.
 www.grandparents.com (84 image files)

Try to combine JavaScript files into one file.

This will reduce the time for requests for files and reduce the number of requests to the web server.
 www.grandparents.com (9 javascript files)
 partner.googleadservices.com (2 javascript files)

Enable GZIP Compression

This is a good practice to give the user content in compressed form. We've detected 314.95 Kb of content that could be compressed. By compressing content you can achieve the size of ~ 78.74 Kb (saving 236.21 Kb). This would accelerate the page loading speed and would positively impact the bandwidth savings in Cerfnet.

Keep Components under 25K

Users often visit web site using a mobile phone. Even the most modern and advanced gadgets have some limitations. For example an iPhone browser do not cache page components bigger than 25K. So you should strive to ensure that scripts, CSS-styles, etc. are less than 25K.

Avoid 301 & 302 Redirects

Redirect allows you to make website or page available under many URLs. Webmasters use redirects when their sites change domain name, several websites are merged into one, document is moved too a new location, etc. Using a redirect delays content obtaining. Any delay negatively affects on the user experience. We've detected that page has 4 redirects before page components start loading. The following list contains some of these redirects:
http://altfarm.mediaplex.com/ad/js/11606-92896-19619-2?mpt=995893741&m... redirects to http://img.mediaplex.com/content/0/11606/92896/HART_728x90_Narrator384...
http://pixel.mathtag.com/data/img?mt_id=100018&mt_dcid=1293726744 redirects to http://tag.admeld.com/pixel?admeld_adprovider_id=296&custom_uuid=4d1c5...
http://rt.udmserve.net/udm/fetch.tg?ev41=a redirects to http://cdn.udmserve.net/pix.gif
http://at.amgdgt.com/ads/?t=pp&px=6825&rnd=1293726744 redirects to http://cdn.amgdgt.com/base/pixels/transparent.gif
Try to reduce the number unnecessary redirects.

Alternate text for the images.

As you may already know, search engine that indexes your pages, do not have eyes. And all content you are trying to display on your site is just HTML & CSS code, images, Flash, etc for the robots. It is It's extremely important to describe each of the objects more datailed using ALT, TITLE and other tags.

Our robot has determined that the grandparents.com page has 75 images, which has no tag ALT. Tag ALT is a text field, that specifies an alternate text for an image. But not only. Search engines consider this tag as a supplemental result for assessing the content of your page entirely. Do not ignore it!

For example your page has this code:
114.   <img src="http://b.scorecardresearch.com/p?c1=2&c2=7532743&c3=&c4=&c5=&c6=&c15=&cj=1">
We recommend you use rich img code in that place:
114.   <img src="http://b.scorecardresearch.com/p?c1=2&c2=7532743&c3=&c4=&c5=&c6=&c15=&cj=1" alt="great deals">


P.S. We used keyword for this image that seemed to us most important for your page. But you can go ahead and give to each of 75 images an ALT text. This problem requires responsible approach. No need to put the same text at alt tag of the all images. Imagine that the pictures do not show and try to make sure that users understand what is shown on the picture based on the alt tag

Specify image dimensions

The browser needs to know the actual dimensions of image (width and height) to quickly render webpage.

We have detected that the 46 images has no width and height.

If you do not specify the width and/or height, then in order to correctly display the image browser needs to download it and only then put on the screen. Otherwise, there is a chance browser will display elements under the picture inappropriately as well as the possible presence of "jumping" effect of the page content (until the page load is finished).

We provide below example of how to define the image http://imagec12.247realmedia.com/RealMedia/ads/Creatives/Gparents/Bills_ROS_728x90-T_2010.12/easyloan_ad_biills_V2_728x9016981846.jpg dimensions:
1445.   <img src="http://imagec12.247realmedia.com/RealMedia/ads/Creatives/Gparents/Bills_ROS_728x90-T_2010.12/easyloa..." border="0" width="IMAGE_WIDTH_HERE" height="IMAGE_HEIGHT_HERE">

Using H1 tag

Show main content of the page clearly. One of the most important internal website ranking factors is the H1 tag. It's a title of the document and the most powerful keyword, actually. Our robot did not find the h1 tag on the page.

Use the TITLE for A tag

As we have already mentioned, search engine bots can not see the site like a people do it. They more focused on the descriptions of certain page elements. That's why we strongly recommend use TITLE operator in the "A" tag. This operator not only describes the page referenced by the page more detailed, but also takes part in the page describing. For example, you have the link on your website:
94.   <a href="http://www.quantcast.com/p-b3zegO6lKtGvw" target="_blank"><img src="http://pixel.quantserve.com/pixel/p-b3zegO6lKtGvw.gif" style="display: none;" border="0" height="1" width="1" alt= "Quantcast"></a>
We suggest you to remake it in this way:
94.   <a href="http://www.quantcast.com/p-b3zegO6lKtGvw" target="_blank" title="expert advice"><img src="http://pixel.quantserve.com/pixel/p-b3zegO6lKtGvw.gif" style="display: none;" border="0" height="1" width="1" alt= "Quantcast"></a>
Of course, you can (and should) use more proper phrase instead of the "expert advice" that describes the link http://www.quantcast.com/p-b3zegO6lKtGvw.

Number of links on the page

Try to avoid a large number of links on the page. Our robot have found 408 links on this page. Google recommends to keep the number of links fewer than 100. More information about this topic you can find in Google Webmaster Guidelines and in the post "How many links per page?" by Matt Cutts (head of Google’s Webspam team)
