Validation: Resource Over 15mb

back to issues overview

Resource Over 15mb

JavaScript and CSS files which are over 15mb in size. This is important as Googlebot limit their crawling and indexing to the first 15MB of a file.

This means anything beyond this limit in JavaScript or CSS might not be processed.

Google only considers the first 15MB of the file for indexing and stops crawling afterwards. The file size limit is applied on the uncompressed data.
