    Page size question

    Hey, this website http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze tells me some recommendations? My webpage that I created size is 91k or so

    Are any of these recommendations correct?

    TOTAL_HTML - Congratulations, the total number of HTML files on this page (including the main HTML file) is 1 which most browsers can multithread. Minimizing HTTP requests is key for web site optimization.
    TOTAL_OBJECTS - Caution. You have 6 total objects on this page. Consider reducing, eliminating, and combining external objects (graphics, CSS, JavaScript) to reduce the total number of objects, and thus separate HTTP requests.
    TOTAL_IMAGES - Congratulations, the total number of images on this page is 2 . Most browsers can send multiple requests, which can speed display of multiple images.
    TOTAL_SIZE - Caution. The total size of this page is 95717 bytes, which will load in over 8 seconds on a 56Kbps modem - or 20.28 seconds. Consider reducing total page size to less than 30K to achieve sub eight second response times on 56K connections. Be sure to provide feedback for pages over 30K by layering your design to display useful content within the first two seconds. Consider optimizing your site with Speed Up Your Site or contacting us about our optimization services.
    TOTAL_SCRIPT - Caution. The total number of external script files on this page is 3 , consider reducing this to one or two. Combine, refine, and optimize your external script files. Ideally you should have one (or even embed scripts for high-traffic pages) on your pages.
    HTML_SIZE - Congratulations, the total size of this HTML file is 7663 bytes, which less than 20K. Assuming that you specify the HEIGHT and WIDTH of your images, this size allows your page to display content in well under 8 seconds, the average time users are willing to wait for a page to display without feedback.
    IMAGES_SIZE - Congratulations, the total size of all your images is 13494 bytes, which is less than 15K. Ideally each image should be less than 1160 bytes, to easily fit into one TCP-IP packet.
    SCRIPT_SIZE - Warning! The total size of external your scripts is 74560 bytes, which is over 8K. Consider optimizing your scripts for size, combining them, and using compression where appropriate for any scripts placed in the HEAD of your documents.
    MULTIM_SIZE - Congratulations, the total size of all your external multimedia files is 0 bytes, which is less than 4K.

    I also tried codingforums.com and it is 166 k's for total size. What's the right size for a webpage?

    It all depends for who you're catering for.

    Here in the UK we have appalling speeds by any standards, but 80% of households have broadband access. You will have to do research into your target audience to decide whether to consider jettisoning some of your external objects in favour of faster loading times.

    A good idea, though, is to consolidate things like CSS files into one big document.
