Tracking page weight over time – UPDATE?

Hi there!

I found this very interesting article: Tracking Page Weight Over Time

Since it was written in 2017, it is not quite actual. I am currently doing research for my Master Thesis on Sustainable Web Design, and would need the same stats, but from 2017 to 2020. I tried following the introduction on doing queries on my own, unfortunately cannot manage to get the stats :unamused:. Can anybody help me, please??


Hi @pemoze. Thanks - I’m glad you found it interesting! I’ll go ahead and update the queries in the article tonight so that you can reference recent page weight stats in your research.

BTW - The table structure changed since I wrote those, which may have made it difficult for you to rerun those queries. I’ll share the updated query as well.

Hi @paulcalvano paulcalvano, did you find the time to have a look at that? Would be so helpful for me :). THANKS!

Apologies for the delay in getting to this. I just updated the original post with some data that you can reference. Let us know if there is anything else you need help analyzing. And good luck on your master thesis!

Many thanks @paulcalvano ! :ok_hand:
One thing would be interesting: Is it still possible to query also the β€œaverage” page weight? I think that was really noticeable in the original post how the 5% largest pages produced the rise of the average size.
