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