Improving the YSlow Score

The other day I was doing some of the site performance adjustments outlined by Mads Kristensen on his Optimize ASP.NET Presentation.


Among the various adjustments made to my site were:

  • Removing the etag headers from the response
  • Within system.webServer->staticContent of the web.config, I made to set client caching on my website and on my static domain "website":
    <clientCache cacheControlMode="UseMaxAge" cacheControlMaxAge="14.00:00:00" />
  • Set compression on the web server, again under the system.webServer section of the web.config:
    <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="true" doStaticCompression="true" dynamicCompressionBeforeCache="true"/>

More details documented as I have time.....
