Hi,

Will it be better to use a separate css file while developing a new site?

As i am a new simple html site and i have included all the CSS content on each file and it is working fine.

So why to make a new separate CSS file?

Putting all the CSS in a single separate file gives you one place to update your style information. Keeping style information in each individual HTML page is going to be lots of work if the site gets more than a half dozen pages or so.

With a separate CSS file, the pages of your site will load faster as each page will have much less code. And now with Google, faster loading web pages will achieve higher rankings, all other things being equal.

A separate CSS file is definitely a good idea.  Among other things this makes it easy to maintain your site over time.  Any time you need to change the look of the site you just have one file.  When I first started out (a long time ago) I would put CSS in the pages and then it is a pain to go back and update things.

Seperate css file is definately the approach to utilize, and why is that?  thanks for asking.  As others mentioned, if your site grows to just a few pages it’s okay but as you continue to add more pages and the sites grows bigger it will turn into a nightmare.  The idea of keep it simple comes to mind and is a prudent idea at this point.
Next, is the load time.  Although Google first said page load time could become a factor.  After being quized repeatedly on the subject they resend the statment.  With that said, you should keep load speed in mind.  thanks,

I also agree that a separate CSS file is definitely a good idea, it makes it much easier to keep any site over time, when you need to customize, change, adjust, so ... you have a. I work so, here are some of my work, hugs!

The main reason behind using a separate file is that the styles are applied to many pages, you can just link the pages that you want to add the style by using <link> tag. And with the separate file you can change the entire look of webpage by modifying the separate file.
