Understanding Google Lighthouse and its benefits for your website.

Google Lighthouse is an open-source tool that audits a website's performance, accessibility, best practices, and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), providing a score for each area. It is an unbiased way to measure the effectiveness of your website's performance. We have developed our website solutions from the ground up with Google Lighthouse in mind and consistently achieve higher scores across all criteria, including performance, SEO, best practices, and accessibility. Trust us to help you optimise your website and get the best possible score on Google Lighthouse.

  •   Performance icon  


    Performance is all about speed. A website that loads quickly will provide a better user experience, leading to lower bounce rates and higher engagement. Google Lighthouse measures a website's performance based on various metrics, such as the time to first byte, the first contentful paint, and the time to interactive. These metrics indicate how quickly the website is loading and responding to user interactions.

  •   Accessibility icon  


    Accessibility is about making your website usable for everyone, including people with disabilities. It's not only a legal requirement in many countries but also essential for providing a good user experience. Google Lighthouse measures a website's accessibility based on several criteria, such as the presence of alternative text for images, the use of proper heading structures, and the presence of keyboard navigation.

    Best practices

    Best practices refer to industry-standard guidelines that ensure a website is built correctly and securely. Following these best practices helps to ensure that a website is easy to maintain, secure, and performs well. Google Lighthouse measures a website's adherence to best practices based on various criteria, such as the use of HTTPS, the presence of a valid SSL certificate, and the absence of mixed content.

    Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

    SEO is all about optimising a website to rank well in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). A website that ranks well will receive more organic traffic, leading to higher engagement and conversions. Google Lighthouse measures a website's SEO based on various factors, such as the presence of meta descriptions, the use of headings, and the presence of structured data.
