Keeping each page within 101k
Search engines use only 101k size of HTML code on a page to take the index
basing upon which it searches. The size of images used at the page is not taken
in consideration by search engines, but you have to remember about your users!
The bigger image size within a page, the slower it takes to load which can be
frustrating for a visitor. Google, of course has experimented with more than
101 k size of indexing, still it is advisable to keep the limit. It is better
Breaking a large page into smaller units and allowing each page to be indexed
serves the purpose.
Exceptions with file sizes are made in case of PDF and DOC files but it is
specified for all search engines as follows: For Google it
is 101k, for Yahoo it is 240k, for MSN it
is 150k and for Ask Jeeves it is also 101k.
