Remember when Google introduced Core Web Vitals and killed all of our scores? Having done a few WordPress Speed Optimizations since then, I decided it’d be a good idea to share my findings on how to improve Core Web Vitals scores on PageSpeed Insights.
Shocking developments in Speed Optimization land last week! Google published an update PageSpeed Insights and integrated Lighthouse 6.0 into our beloved tool.
Although (basically) everyone’s scores plummeted into the ground (except mine), I’m pretty happy with the changes.
Dear internet, please stop worrying about your Google Pagespeed score.
Okay. That is a weird thing for me to say, since I’m offering WordPress services to boost your overall Performance Score. But it’s the truth.
Your Google Pagespeed Insights score is a meaningless metric if you don’t know how to interpret it. Allow me to explain.
A few years ago I wrote a guide on how to get a perfect 100/100 score on Pagespeed Insights, Pingdom and GTMetrix. A lot of time has passed since then. The rules have changed and I’ve learned new, easier ways to optimize my WordPress blog. In this post I’ll show you an updated approach to completely optimize your blog using a few efficiënt, easy to use plugins.
