Fixit – Empty Image

This test determines if your page has any empty image tags (image tags with no ‘src’ attribute or an empty ‘src’ attribute). Leaving image tags empty require processing that is ultimately wasted. When image tags need to be dynamically created this should happen with JavaScript programming.

Checking for empty image tags

This test checks to see if the page contains any empty image tags. If any empty image tags are detected then the test reports a FAIL.

If you receive a FAIL for this test, you should consider removing the empty image tags.



This test is based on a YSlow best practice. See for more details.
