A sluggish Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) will dent your SEO performance 

Just when you thought you knew everything you needed to tweak for optimal SEO, Google announces the Page Experience Update which drops a new range of SEO related page performance criteria on us (Core web Vitals) and will come into play starting mid June 2021.

Essentially, those who’ve been in denial about the impact of page performance on SEO can’t ignore it any longer. Speed matters. But notably, speed as defined by Google.

Now we need to discover how to wring out red hot page load performance, without costing a fortune for web hosting for our clients.

Some of the new metrics you’ll grow to love to hate includes:
