Sears shows what a really fast Mobile site looks like (Yes it loads faster than Google’s Mobile home page)


First the numbers (this test was done on Sprints network from just South of Denver)

  • Google loads in 3.922 seconds – 14 elements and 307k
  • Sears loads in 2.991 seconds – 17 elements and 154k

Sears vs Google


And here’s what their page looks like – 10 out of 10 for formatting.




Bottom line – the magic number is about 150k and you should be able to deliver that in about 3 seconds with a good connection. Worse case is about 7 seconds which is still good enough for Mobile.
