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 optimized also.

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.
