Web Watch: Size of Institutional Top Level Pages

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend to friendSend to friend

Web Watch: Brian Kelly looks at the size of institutional top level pages.

Is your University home page big, bold and brassy? Is it colourful and interactive, making use of new technologies in order to stand out from the crowd? Or is it mean and lean, with a simple design providing rapid download times and universal access?

This survey of the size of the entry points for UK University and College entry points seeks an answer to these questions.

The Methodology

This report is based on use of two Web-based tools: NetMechanic and Bobby. Two tools were used in order to see if there were any differences between the way the tools worked, the results they gave, etc.

The output from the NetMechanic service is illustrated below.

Figure 1: Output From NetMechanic
Figure 1: Output From NetMechanic

It should be noted that NetMechanic gives the overall file size, together with the sizes of objects it finds, which includes HTML, images, background images, style sheet and JavaScript files, etc.

The output from the Bobby service is illustrated below.

Figure 2: Output From Bobby
Figure 2: Output From Bobby

It should be noted that Bobby also gives the overall file size, together with the sizes of HTML and images objects it finds. However the current version of Bobby does not appear to provide information on the size of other objects, such as stylesheet files, external JavaScript files, etc.

It should be noted from Figures 1 and 2 that NetMechanic indicates that the University College Chichester Home Page contains only one image and is 15,839 b whereas Bobby analyses several images and gives a total size of 130.43 Kb. This discrepancy is due to the sites robots.txt file: NetMechanic obeys the directives in this file and will not analyse files in the site's /images directory.

The Survey

On 15th-31st May 2001 the NetMechanic and Booby tools were used to obtain information on the size of the institutional entry points for UK Higher Educational Institutions, based on a list taken initially from HESA [1].

In cases of significantly small sizes, the results were manually checked in order to see if the tools were reporting on the page which end users will see. It was noted that in a significant number of cases the tools were not reporting on the page as seen by the end user: instead the tools give figures for pages containing (a) redirect information (b) no-frames alternatives or (c) "splash screens". In addition it was found that if a site's robots.txt file prohibited robots from accessing directories containing image resources used on the entry point, then the sizes of these image files was not included in the overall total.

In a number of cases it was also noted that there were significant discrepancies between the results reported by NetMechanic and Bobby. In these cases the discrepancies were flagged and, in some cases, further analysis was carried out. For example, it was found that if a site's robots.txt file prohibited robots from accessing directories containing image resources used on the entry point, then the sizes of these image files was not included in the overall total.

Findings

A summary of the findings is given below.

Largest Entry Points

The largest entry points is given in Table 1. This table gives details on entry points larger than 100 Kb. It should be noted that if the file sizes reported by NetMechanic and Bobby differ, the largest value is used to determine whether the Web site should be included in the table.

Table 1: Largest Entry Points

The Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College entry point is shown below. This can be regarded as an example of a big, bold entry point, which contains a secondary window, frames and a dynamic Javascript menu.

Figure 3: Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College Home Page
Figure 3: Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College Home Page

It should be noted that, with the exception of Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College and Napier University, the remainder of the large entry points appear to be due to the images. The size of Buckinghamshire Chilterns entry point appears to be due to its complexity, and Napier due to the Javascript program which provides the dynamic menu (shown below).

A rolling demonstration of the pages listed in the above table is available which provides a simple means for comparing these entry points [2].

Smallest Entry Points

A list of the smallest entry points is given in Table 2. It should be noted that if the file sizes reported by NetMechanic and Bobby differ, the largest value is used to determine whether the Web site should be included in the table. However the values are checked to see if they give the size of the entry point which would be seen by an end user. If the value for the file size is based on a redirect message, a no-frames page, etc. the Web site is not included in the table.

Conclusions

This is believed to be the first survey of the size of UK University and Colleges entry points since the initial WebWatch surveys which were carried out in 1997 (see Ariadne issue 12 [4]) and 1998 (see [5] and [6]).

A histogram of the size of entry points in 1998, taken from the Third Crawl of UK Academic Entry Points report [6] is shown in Figure 4.

Figure 4:
Figure 4: Profile Of Size Of Entry Points in 1998

It should be noted that the data represented in Figure 4 in based on the size of the HTML page and inline images - other linked files, such as style sheets, JavaScript, etc. were not included (and were probably not widely deployed at that time).

The range of sizes shown in Figure 4 spans from around 5Kb (Royal College of Music [7]) to around 200 Kb (Kent Institute of Art and Design [8]). The second large outlier (192 Kb) was for the Scottish College of Textiles - an institution which has now merged with Heriot-Watt University.

Detailed comparisons with previous surveys are difficult to make due to the inconsistencies of the tools and the lack of a rigourous definition of what is meant by the size of a page. However it is hoped that the survey has provided a useful overall picture of the UK HE community.

It is also hoped that this survey will stimulate a discussion on the ideal size for an institution's entry point. Should be be now looking to exploit the functionality which is now provided multimedia objects to provide an attractive and memorable interface and provide more functional and, perhaps, usable dynamic interfaces which JavaScript can provide. Or should priority be given to small sizes and speedy download times? Alternatively, is there a compromise, and what should this compromise be?

Future Work

It is intended to carry out further surveys of the size of entry points within the UK HE (and, if resources permit it, FE communities). Future work will attempt to provide a more rigourous, relevant, measurable and reproducible measure for the size of entry points (although, of course, the growth of personalised entry points and changeable entry points containing news items, may not make this feasible).
