Simple Core Web Vitals Speed Optimization Service

Our speed goal for this service is to fix sitewide speed issues and have you passing Google’s Core Web Vitals speed metrics.

Core Web Vitals is set a speed metrics where data is collated from real users visiting your site on Google Chrome browser and is the data used by Google in it’s ranking algorithm.

With Core Web Vitals all pages on your site matter AND it’s real world speed that counts, not necessarily scores in speed tools.

Our goal for this service is to have you passing Google’s Core Web Vitals metrics and help you rank higher in Google

Google’s Core Web Vitals (CWV) metrics are a set of standardized site speed metrics gathered from real people visiting your website that use Google Chrome. This is the data that Google uses in it’s ranking algorithm and failing these metrics will cause errors and warnings to appear in Google Search Console.

These metrics are fantastic for website owners, managers and marketers as they reflect what’s happening in the real world and give us hard data to work with when optimizing websites for speed and an actual set of numbers to aim at.

With this service, we optimize your site for real world site speed, revalidate your site in Google Search Console and followup 28 days later to ensure you’re passing.

Good quality hosting is a key requirement for passing the Core Web Vitals so this service also includes an optional hosting migration if it’s required. If you don’t currently have a CDN service we’ll get you setup with Cloudflare – if you’re targeting a worldwide or international audience or have very high traffic, we strongly recommend Cloudflare’s APO service at $5/mo which will significantly speed up the site for international visitors and reduce load on your hosting.

If you’re ready to get started with this service now, click here or hit the Order Now button. Once you’ve completed the checkout process the system will provide an onboarding form for you to complete with your site details. At a minimum, we’ll need a WordPress admin level logon and FTP or hosting admin access.

If you’re interested in this service but not sure if it’s for you, click here to submit a FREE site sped audit & review and once of the team will come back to you with advice and recommendations.

If you’re not looking for a service at all and want to DIY, try testing your site in SiteSpeedBot.com, our free site speed test tool. It 100% free and in around 90 seconds can give you detailed site speed recommendations most other tools won’t

More About This Service:

Note that our WordPress Maintenance & Support Plans include both Core Web Vitals Optimization, high speed hosting AND ongoing patching and WordPress maintenance and may be a better fit if you’re a small business, pricing starts at $39/month with a $239 setup fee.

Our Core Web Vitals service is best suited to small and local business sites and smaller Woocommerce sites but not necessarily high traffic, mission critical or enterprise sites.

If you have a high monetized site, a site that is mission critical where changes need to be tested on a staging site first or where you have an existing dev team that will be doing the work, our Consult & Implementation Service is probably a better fit. With our Consult service, we do a comprehensive site speed audit in advance, create a detailed action plan and then schedule in a time to discuss and plan implementation. We discuss any potential risks in advance BEFORE making changes. Work can be done by our dev team or we can work with your existing dev team.

More About Core Web Vitals & Google PageSpeed Insights Scores:

As per above, CWV metrics are real world speed metrics or what Google refers to as “field data”.

Google Pagespeed Insights Scores (Google’s speed test tool) are “synthetic metrics” or “lab data”. Pagespeed Insights (PSI) scores are useful BUT what we really care about is passing core web vitals.

It’s possible to get a 100 score in a PSI test and have poor or completely failing core web vital metrics and vice versa.

Above is a screenshot of a Core Web Vitals report for our WPSpeedFix.com website, CLICK HERE to see the full live report. The report updates on the second Tuesday of each month, click here if you want to create one for your website (or a competitor!). The report will only work if your site has enough traffic – you’ll also need to entire the correct URL for your site.

With this service we focus on the three core web vitals metrics as well as three other important metrics, these metrics and our goals for them are:

TTFB or time to first byte (aka server response time) – we want this at 0.1-0.2 seconds in the country where the site is hosted and 0.2-0.5 internationally. This is a web vitals metric (not a core metric) but its key for that snappy, instant loading feeling.

FCP or first contentful paint time under 1.8 seconds – this is the time at which the user sees something start to load. It’s the time at which the first piece of content appears. Again this is a web vitals metric (not core web vital) but is important for user experience.

LCP or largest contentful paint – this is one of the three core web vitals and we want this under 2.5 seconds for 75%+ of your visitors. LCP time is the time when the largest piece of content on the page appears. To the user this is essentially when they perceive the site as being loaded.

CLS or cumulative layout shift – this is also a core web vital metric but isn’t a speed, it’s a calculated number based on how much the page moves around while loading. You’ve probably had an experience of layout shift where you go to click on a part of the page and it suddenly shifts and your mouse is in the wrong spot – that’s layout shift. We need this number under 0.1 for a passing grade.

Page size or page weight in megabytes (MB) – this is not a Google metric BUT is absolutely critical in ensuring the page loads fast. We ideally need all pages under 1.5mb. Pages over 3mb will almost always fail the Core Web Vitals test and we see SEO ranking issues with sites that have a number of pages over 5mb+.

FID or First Input delay – this is how quickly the site responds to the first input from the user. This metric can only be measured in the real world so we focus on a combination of time to interactive (we want under 3.8 seconds) and total blocking time (under 200ms) instead. This usually involves optimizing javascript such as livechat code, marketing code and your theme code as well as Youtube video embeds which can be horribly slow and heavy.

Questions before ordering

For questions before ordering email questions@wpspeedfix.com or submit a free site speed audit request and one of the team will get back to you usually within 1 business day or so.

Price:

$495 USD

Turnaround Time: Typically 2-7 business days once all required logons are provided. This may be longer depending on whether any additional information or back and forth with you is required.

NOTE that Core Web Vitals scores are based on a 28 day average and depending on how poor your speed is, it may take a full 28 days after optimization is done to get a passing score.

If you’re not sure if this service is for you, submit a FREE site speed audit & review here and one of the team will review your site and advise what’s doable.

A personal approach is generally the best. We were unhappy with the performance of our Wordpress site on another larger Australian site. Brendan and his team made the process of swapping hosting painless (with no downtime), as well as several suggestions for improving performance.

Simply an outstanding service that was completely above and beyond any and every expectation. We even had issues months later with errors that were resolved with unbelievable levels of professionalism and expertise. I cannot recommend or thank WP Speed Fix enough.World Class.

I’ve gone through about 6 companies that claim they can fix CWV with no success. I was referred to WP Speed Fix by a friend, and not only did they fix my CWV, they made sure my site blew away my competition. I cannot be happier with the results. I was extremely hesitant to hire them at first because of my horrible experiences with other companies, but I am beyond glad I gave them a shot.The bottom line is, if you want your core web vitals fixed, you need to hire these guys.

We had a website that was loading terribly slowly. WP Speed Fix, and specifically Ash who worked on our site, were incredible. Not only did they increase our speed site over 90%, Ash was patient and knowledgeable, and really went above and beyond for us. Couldn't recommend them more! Thank you!!

I was really impressed with these guys. I hired them to speed up our website and not only was that done really fast and professionally, but they continued to help me with some slightly unrelated issues that popped up later on. They really helped me out in a bind. I almost never leave reviews, but these guys are solid and deserve it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Brendan and Ash are top-notch guys who not only are experts at Wordpress and site speed, but they also know SEO and how site speed plays into it.Brendan got me going and showed me my site's CRUX reports and other things and setup an action plan for me based on what my site was deficient in. Then Ash stepped in and made the plan a reality! He also had a bunch of insights and recommendations that I've never heard before on the various SEO and webmaster blogs.Best of all, my site's scores are all now in the 90 percentile and we still have the CDN to enable! Also, there was no downtime or anything broken on the site like I was expecting. Great job guys! I will be referring you to my friends and business partners.

Wow! I had several previous experience with different companies in order to improve my site speed. Every single time I got answers like: you have too many plugins in your Worpdress installation, you need to cut down in order to improve speed or it is you host provided that is the issue, you should change if you want to get more speed, etc.I was very, very sceptical about WP Speed Fix. But, I must admit Ash for WP Speed Fix went above and beyond in order to improve my site. No excuses, just improvements. He really improve my site to best it could be, did a way better job than any previous company combined.I will most assurely do a once a year maintenance-overlook with WP Speed Fix. Worth every cent. Highly recommended.

Brendan Tully and his team are my go-to source for expert SEO and PPC advice. And their hosting and security services cannot be beat. If I could give them more than 5 stars then I would - because they always go above and beyond to make sure the service they provide you far exceeds expectations. For premium website hosting, sustainable SEO practices, and efficient PPC management - there's no one I'd rather work with.

I worked with Ash with TikTokFollowing.com, originally my site was incredibly slow. He managed to sort out all of my Core Web Vitals whilst educating me along the way. Best WP optimisation service out there, also their after sales support is incredible, It got to the point where I felt bad and wanted to send them more ££ as they done so much work for me and didn't stop until I was pleased. Will be bringing a few more sites your way, thank you WP Speed fix a big 5* to you!

I cannot recommend Brendan and his team highly enough. I was apprehensive about giving access to my website to people I had never met and had only seen their website online. But I had gone as far as my limited skills could take me and definitely needed help. Thank goodness I trusted them because they sped up my alarmingly slow Wordpress website beyond even what I had hoped. I am writing this review with a sincere, heartfelt thanks to them and an assurance for those who read this review that you can trust them completely to help you, too. They will not take advantage of you and you will be very happy with the results.

Joao and the rest of the WP Speed Fix team has delivered stellar results in a timely manner. And admittedly, I probably wasn't the easiest client. I run a blog built off Elementor (notoriously clunky). Even so, Joao took care to investigate a bunch of issues and was patient with me and my many questions along the way.Since I'm located in the US, time zones were a bit of an 'annoyance' , but Joao was quite responsive and at the end of the day, the results they delivered far outweighed any time inconvenience.This has made my life a lot easier, and boy, I found their price point to be a good value. I've already referred a friend to WP Speed Fix -- big thanks to Joao and the team! :)(I voluntarily completed this review and receive nothing in compensation -- I'm just quick to give praise when it's due).

WP Speed Fix provided us with amazing customer service and completed all tasks on time!I worked with Ash form the WP Speed Fix Team, who is a structured and well organised professional. He was always there when we needed assistance and promptly responded with helpful information, action or guidance to help complete the task at hand.Some time after the work was completed we asked Ash for additional information to help us solve a current issue. Ash promptly responeded and helped us solve the issue by providing guidance. Ash responded quickly and professionaly even though that was not part of the previous project scope!We would definitely recommend working with WP Speed Fix. Professional and on time delivery and a team of experts that provide great customer service!

In the digital marketing industry, it’s important to find allies and people who you can rely on if you ever run into SEO problems you can’t solve on your own. WP Speed Fix has been incredible thus far. We have worked on multiple projects together, and they have helped to significantly boost our clients’ website speed. They have provided in-depth, ongoing consulting, to make sure everything was dialed in. Most recently, I asked Brendan about an SEO problem we ran into for one of our clients’ websites and he came back with an incredibly detailed, helpful and most importantly, accurate insight into the problem. I will absolutely be turning to WP speed fix in the future for any technical SEO, and page speed optimization needs.

I reached out to WP Speed Fix for two websites. Both website were slow, and given that I'm a pro photographer, image quality was of great importance to me. I didn't want a website that was pure text and fast; I wanted a site that looked great and performed very well.Both sites are performing as promised by WP Speed Fix, and Ash went above and beyond for me. Tackling constant issues with my website I cannot say enough good things about WP Speed Fix and the way they stepped up to the challenges.Thank you Ash, I have sincerely appreciated your patience and increasing the speed of sites as promised.

It's hard to find companies that truly go above and beyond to make sure that you as a customer get what you have paid for nowadays. Brendan and his team did everything they could to make sure I as a customer was satisfied. So much so, that I am now switching my monthly services fully over to them from my current hosting company.Cant recommend Brendan and his team enough as you know that they know exactly what they are talking about and extremely experienced in their field.ThanksAllan!
