Hello number one SEO community. This time I`ve got a tough question (at least for me :). Do you remove Etag from headers? What sort of implications can it have on the website. Thanks a lot for the answers.

Alistair Lattimore: I checked the documentation for HTML5 Boilerplate+ and they are removing the etag by default because it isn`t consistently generated in a clustered web hosting environment by default.<br /><br />Most websites aren`t load balanced, so the etag is consistently generated and it isn`t a problem but I guess they are just covering their bases and providing that option but it could be disabled easily if you wanted to continue serving etags.
Sławomir Zdunek: + Thank you very much for the answer. That was very helpful. Mobile boilerplates suggest removing Etag so I was wondering if this is the way to go. I try to build RWD websites and optimize them so I wonder if removing Etag can be helpful in this respect.
