6 New Features Added To Thrive Themes – Late June 2021

Have you heard the news?

...The mind-blowing, software-redefining, really REALLY big news?

Thrive Apprentice is now the world's first 100% visually editable online course platform.

Only a few weeks ago, we released the single biggest update that Thrive Apprentice has ever seen since we first released the online course plugin for WordPress years ago.

This one update completely reinvents how you design and build an online eLearning experience.

But adding our next-generation template editing technology to Thrive Apprentice wasn't the only update... There were 5 other updates that flew under the radar too.

Allow me to share them with you. 

Project Lightspeed Has Been Released!

Speed geeks, SEO fiends, and marketers alike:

Gather round.

Today, we have released Project Lightspeed. This is a huge milestone in the history of Thrive Themes.

Project Lightspeed is a one-click, code optimization tool that ensures your website — built with any Thrive Themes plugins — will output leaner, cleaner code.

Leaner code = less to load = faster website response times.

And with Google's Core Web Vitals algorithm set to roll out gradually from later this month until August, now is the right time to try it out.

Read on for a tutorial on what Project Lightspeed is and how to enable it.

Project Lightspeed Update: How It Will Help Core Web Vitals

Last month, we announced Project Lightspeed, our code optimization project to improve the efficiency of Thrive Themes plugins, themes and software on your website.

We are doing this in response to Google's upcoming Core Web Vitals algorithm update, where they will include website user experience into their 200+ ranking factors for Google Search.

The very same day we announced Project Lightspeed, Google amended their timeline, now saying that Core Web Vitals will be a gradual rollout beginning in mid-June and ending in late-August.

In this article, we'll provide an update on:

  1. 1
    Our progress on Project Lightspeed
  2. 2
    A breakdown of each Core Web Vitals metric
  3. 3
    Examples of how our code optimization can improve those metrics

Project Lightspeed: What We Are Doing About Google Core Web Vitals and Website Speed

Last year, Google announced that they are going to add a new ranking factor to their search algorithm: Core Web Vitals.

This aligns with Google’s dedication to user experience (UX), and ensuring that anyone using Google search will get what they want from the web pages listed on the results page.

But what does that mean to a website owner? 

Should you panic that your online business is going to crumble? Or is the pandemonium about Google’s announcement an overreaction?

More importantly: Are Thrive Themes doing anything to improve Core Web Vitals?

Yes, we are. And in this post, we’ll share an official statement about what we are optimizing in our software, and why.
