    Slow Google Lighthouse Performance

    If you use Google Chrome, there is a feature under Settings >Developer Tools>Lighthouse.

    Click "Generate Report" and Google gives a report for your website's performance, SEO and other metrics.  The toughest one is Performance.  Currently my site is giving poor grades for:

     

    Image elements do not have explicit width and height

    Reduce the impact of third-party code (Go Daddy code)

    > Minimize main-thread work

    > Remove unused JavaScript

    > Time to First Contentful Paint

    > Time to Interactive

    > Time to Largest Contentful Paint

     

    Does anyone know wat we can do to improve performance scores within the Website Builder to improve our scores?  It seems Google is now ranking pages based on this score so it is important

    Hi @Thomasdmd we are actively working on improvements for this. Google made a change that caused some lighthouse scores to go down. Thanks for your patience. Christine

    @ChristineL That's awesome to hear you are aware of this.  I was getting performance scores of 94-96 until recently, now in the 50's.  I'm not sure most users understand the importance of this and the difficulty involved in achieving fast performance scores, but it makes Google happy and helps SEO
