    Hi, Everyone...

    I have some questions about file size...

    Based on my research....

    It is better to have smaller file size right??

    My question is "is size of css matters??"

    My CSS file is pretty big i guess
    SEMrush
    And i'm currently using MAMBO CMS

    So template HTML isn't that big....

    But CSS is pretty big compare to my other site...

    Thank you all in advance...

    Enjoy the last moment of 2004 everyone.. :)

    From an SEO perspective it does not matter. Most SE's will not even access your css file. That's one of the main points of css really - allow your end users to cache the stylesheet and save your bandwidth.

    Of course, I'm talking about linking to an external stylesheet.

    You should optimize your css file... Your website is for visitors, not for spiders... I've seen css files with 8kb, others with a couple of bytes... The smaller the better... But don't put css directly on your html page, always create a separate file.

    And the size is 12kb...

    Isn't it too big??

    But there is noting to remove...That's the smallest I could get...

    That seems pretty big to me.. Take out all comments and unnecessary whitespace from the production version to make it a bit smaller.

    White space doesn't count. Only characters.

    Does anyone know which (if any) search engines can parse external style sheets? Read absolute positioning?
