Use the GZIP compression checker
Simply put, GZIP compression allows smaller files to be sent to your browser. Files ending in .zip and .rar are files that have been made smaller by compressing them into a ZIP file. These smaller files will improve the loading speed of your website and thus improve your ranking in Google. After all, higher loading speed is a ranking factor of the Google algorithm. To make the example a little more practical, let’s take a look at the number of kb’s of a file. Suppose you have a 100kb file, then you can use GZIP compression to reduce that file to 10kb. That’s a significant difference, don’t you think? GZIP compression is one of the many components of technical SEO and will help get the foundation of your SEO right.
GZIP is a valuable addition to almost any website for improving loading speed, even though the extraction of a GZIP file is done by your device’s processor. Downloading an uncompressed file simply takes more time than unzipping a compressed file.
