    While much of the info still holds true, the article really does show its age (written in 2002) with comments like “80% of your surfers will be at 56k or even less”. According to http://www.websiteoptimization.com/bw/0412/ , over half of US homes now have broadband connections, less than ten percent are using sub-56k connections.

    Yes, many have faster connections now than in 2002, but the same rule still holds true: smaller = faster = better. Unless you overdo it, obviously.

  3. I’m forwarding the article URL to the head of a local environmental non-profit who keeps asking me how to get more people to visit the site.

    The site has valid and semantic based code (logical structure, appropriate h1’s, lists, and other goodness). It does well in google searches for related topics, but since the content is rarely updated people tend to visit a few times then not return. Maybe the article will give him a nudge to post more, lend his expertise in some forums, and help him get the audience he desires.

  4. Wow, pretty good article eventhough it’s already 3 years old. And Roger Johansson is right. There’s no reason to make websites extra bloated because over half of US homes now have broadband connections. Don’t forget that <10% is still a lot and the US is not the only country with internet access…

    A superb article by any standards and holds just as true today as it did when it was written.

    A lot has changed in the last few years but the simplicity of approach in SEO is still the best. Bottom line: Content is King and IBL’s Rule!

  6. Wow, I’d completely forgotten about that article.

    So true.
