sharethis bandwidth can be optimised

  • Updated 3 years ago
Google Page Speed is showing me my site (www.onesportevent.com) would benefit if the images that sharethis server are compressed further - e.g. they are not fully optimised. this must result in a HUGE traffic wasteage overall.

Can you please optimise the images. google page speed even has a single link wich will losessley do this - cheers sport@onesportevent.com

Hi,

Thanks for brining this to our attention. We are going to have some our developers look into this.

Great, while they are at it maybe they could do some of the other improvements, like ensuring http compression is switched on, javascript and css is fully minimized, urls are as short as possible etc etc. It's great if the data can fit within a single tcp packet.

For sure I bet a lot of developers will see the 'google page speed' plug-in or 'yslow' feedback and overcome by just creating local copies of the javascript, images etc.. which won't do your business any good.
