Core Web Vitals: The Key to Site Speed Improvement

To fix your website speed, our team will assess your website’s Core Web Vitals. These are a series of metrics that Google uses to analyse your online performance and customer experience.

The metrics play a critical part in how Google determines your search ranking online. These include:

  • Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): Measures how long it takes for your website to load
  • First Input Delay (FID): How quickly your site responds to user interaction
  • Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): CLS measures your website’s visual stability and whether your site shifts around as it loads.

Here at Kia Ora Digital, our site speed developers in New Zealand are always up-to-date with Google’s algorithm changes so we make sure your site is performing up to scratch. We’ll also ensure your site is fast to load, user-friendly, and secure to browse.

What is speed optimisation in SEO?

Speed optimisation in SEO refers to the process of making your website load faster. A fast-loading website not only provides a better user experience but also plays a crucial role in your website's search engine ranking.

How does speed affect SEO?

Website speed directly impacts SEO in several ways. Google has confirmed that site speed is a ranking factor for its search engine.

If your website loads slowly, it can lead to a higher bounce rate as users tend to leave sites that don't load within a few seconds. This can negatively impact your site's ranking in search engine results.

Additionally, a slow-loading website can decrease the number of pages Google can crawl using their allocated crawl budget, which could negatively impact your site's indexation.

Why is speed important for SEO?

Speed is important for SEO because it influences user experience, conversion rates, and search engine rankings.

A fast-loading website helps keep visitors engaged, reduces bounce rates, and encourages them to interact more with your site, leading to better conversion rates. Speed is also a ranking factor for Google, so a faster website can help improve your visibility in search results, driving more organic traffic to your site.

How can I improve my page speed optimisation?

There are several ways to optimise your page speed, including the following:

  • Compress Images: Large images can significantly slow down your website. Use tools to compress images without losing quality.
  • Minify Files: Minify your CSS, JavaScript, and HTML files to reduce their size and improve load times.
  • Leverage Browser Caching: This allows a user's browser to store copies of your site's individual pages, so it doesn't need to retrieve the entire page every time the user visits your site.
  • Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN): A CDN stores copies of your site at various points around the world to reduce the distance data has to travel to reach your users.
  • Optimise Your Code: Remove unnecessary characters, whitespace, and code comments to improve your site's speed. 

While these are some of the common methods, speed optimisation can be quite technical and complex, which is why it's often beneficial to work with professionals like Kia Ora Digital.
