do includes slow down page load times ?

(1/1)

ak47:
If you run a site which makes use of includes does that load slower than a site which doesn't have to pull in external files? I would think yes, but even if it does will that play any part in your optimisation plans ?

certainly having includes is really helpful from a development perspective!

Alex:
It depends which includes you mean.
If php or asp, it can slow down pages if script is too complex.
Otherwise there is no differences.

ryosuzuki:
Includes slow down sites by a microsecond, maybe a nano-second, it's so small it's not even worth worrying about. Again the presumption is that the include is just a simple HTML type include not one that does a server side call.

Yuga:
There are many different factors that affect page load time. The speed at which a page loads depends on the hosting server, amount of bandwidth in transit, and web page design – as well as the number, type, and weight of elements on the page. Other factors include user location, device, and browser type.
