Question asked by Mike Linz in #SEO on Jan 7, 2020

I recently ran a speed test on the below url: Seniority.in

And came up with the following test results as mentioned in the below link:

PageSpeed Insights 

I was just interested to know as mentioned in the above test results as to whether removing unused CSS would do any good in terms of page loading time and if so what is the procedure to remove unused CSS.

The page loading time of desktop version is pretty good. It is only for the mobile version that it is taking a lot more time to load up the page.

Any help in this regards would be greatly appreciated.

Mike, removing unused CSS is highly recommended. Looking at your site, my best guess is that you are using Bootstrap 4 and have lot of custom CSS. You should make use of PurgeCSS - a tool that will help you get rid of the unused CSS.

Just run your css through PurgeCSS and it runs through all your HTML file and only keeps the CSS classes that you are using.

Learned something new about improving page speed recently, other than everything else that has been listed. 

Enable the 'Keep Alive' feature, which is off for most websites. Reportedly it reduces the number of pings that go to the server, and significantly improves page loading speed.

Ambarish - where exactly do you see the keep alive feature? Is it host specific?

Keep Alive is not host-specific. Adding this code to .htaccess file should enable the headers-

To optimize site loading speed you need minify HTML, CSS, JAVA SCRIPT file. Not only that you also have to enable Jzip compression.
