I have a 14% code to text ratio...

Web Page Size :
19249 Bytes = 19 KB

Code Size :
16455 Bytes = 16 KB

Text Size :
2794 Bytes = 3 KB

Code to Text Ratio : 14.52 %

I have done a little reading in that a higher ratio percentage is better?

So add more text?

If that is the case, would i do more good than harm if i added a "More Information" link that has a hidden DIV tag that expands and displays some keyword rich content?

Not an overload of keywords obviously, i dont want to kill my site, but a few paragraphs that talk about my site, about us,....etc...

Could try tidying up your code more if its not that clean?

Or remove some code - are you using tables or CSS? I was able to 'shrink' page sizes from an average of 20Kb+ to under 10Kb by switching to table-less coding.

Why not show this div by default? Is it beneficial to all your visitors? If so show it without them having to click to see it.
