Core Web Vital Scores

There are only three ways to optimise core web vitals to arrive at Poor, Needs Improvement & Good. Different factors are affecting the scores & it varies for each web vital.

Slow loading sites frustrate people, leaving customers with a poor first impression. As page load time increases, you'll see fewer page views & lower conversions. Google punishes slow loading sites, especially on mobile, which means downward pressure on your SEO rankings. (These metrics will be a ranking factor, starting in May 2021)

Core Web Vitals Background

Largest Contentful Paint

Largest Contentful Paint is a measure of rendering performance, a good replacement for page load time or DOM content ready. The best score you can have for this is to have a rendering time below 2.5 seconds. The metric is there to help you see how long your large content renders on the page.

First Input Delay

First Input Delay is a measure of how long it takes the browser to respond to discrete user input like clicks or taps. Google looks at a score that is less than 100ms for this web vital & the best way to go about this is to carefully look at the code & measure the performance based on the areas you can optimise.

Cumulative Layout Shift

Cumulative Layout Shift is a measure of how unstable the page was, a sum of all unexpected layout shifts in the page lifecycle. Any unstable element on your site will set you up for a lower Core Web Vital score. However, this does not include interactive features such as a layout change when a user clicks on a button.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you work with?

I work with startups, SMEs & some of the region's most prominent organisations. I can help you if you run an eCommerce site, you want to generate leads online, or your agency requires some additional marketing support.

We are likely to be a good fit if:

  • Your current marketing efforts aren't producing the results you require.
  • You no longer have the time to coordinate your online marketing correctly.
  • You want to promote your company online but don't know where to start.

I'm very selective about the clients I choose to work with. If I don't believe we can work together to achieve your goals, I will let you know upfront.

How would we work together?

I can be flexible to accommodate your requirements, whether that's becoming an extension of your marketing team, running your company's marketing activities on your behalf or providing support as & when required.

How will I know what you are working on?

I'm transparent in everything I do, so you know what I'm doing, why I'm doing it & what impact it has had on your bottom-line.

Work is discussed in advance & is itemised in your monthly report. I provide access to a Google Drive folder that contains all of my work so you can quickly provide feedback & keep a record of work produced.

How much do you charge?

I charge a day rate, so you know how many billable hours you receive each month & how much you pay in advance.

Your quote will be dependent on the scope of the work required to meet your goals. I will be able to provide you with an estimate after our initial consultation.

Will I be tied into a lengthy contract?

In a word, no. I won't hold you to ransom in the unlikely event you aren't happy with the work I produce. I ask you to provide me with 30 days notice should you wish to pause the campaign for any reason.

What locations do you cover?

I mainly work with businesses located in Lancashire & Cumbria. However, my work isn't location-dependent, so I'm able to work with companies throughout the UK & internationally.

Can I meet you?

Of course! I will happily visit your business to discuss your search marketing requirements in more detail.

Are you ready to discuss growing your business?

I'm currently taking on a limited number of clients. Contact me to arrange a free consultation & find out if we can work together to grow your business.
