Ideas to improve website loading speed?

My page gets performance score 79 in yslow which is not bad. Yslow says the parts I can work on are


Grade F on Make fewer HTTP requests

It does make many HTTP requests but how can I make'em fewer? The page uses the facebook and gmaps API and quit using those features are kind of out of the question.


Grade F on Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)

I suppose I can but that seems like I need another hosting provider.


Grade F on Add Expires headers

I tried adding expires headers in app.yaml to my stuff but it seems it's the components from other sources that don't have expires headers.


Grade F on Put JavaScript at bottom

Again I'm forced to put some javascript at the top since it's the recommendation. Should I do anything special here?


Grade B on Do not scale images in HTML

I suppose I could do things another way than inline style elements.


Grade B on Avoid CSS expressions

I don't know what this is.

So I want to make it perform even better. Do you have any idea how to optimize this code?

    Looks to me like most of the highlighted issues are coming from Facebook Connect on your page mate. Wouldn't worry about it too much as I can see you've already used spriting for your own images etc.

1 Answer 1


for 1)merge all css in on file & javascript files in one file for fewer HTTP requests. merge all background into one image file and use css to devide them

2)change your host or use cloadfare.com

3)contact your script developer to fix it

4)simple:Put JavaScript at bottom: before

5)also simple: Do not scale images in HTML. resize your images in a photo editor for web use

6)compress your scc(also javascript) files.

and Ideas: use caching. both in server and on clients local memory(html5 feature)
