Nowadays the world of the online business is more competitive than ever and that is why everything matters and probably the most important is the website speed and the user experience.
Half a month ago we contacted a marketing company not only showing them some very important SEO problems they had but also how they could solve them.
Today we have visited their website one more time and, surprise, everything remains the same.
It is possible that we may not have spoken to the right person as the responsibilities of the employees in the most of the companies are often reduced to a specific area and they generally do not have time or simply do not care about the rest of the problems that surround them.
Or probably, we needed to explain why these issues need to be fixed, although it should be more than clear to any digital marketer or developer why the mobile page speed and the UX are important.
On the other side, another and very probable simple explanation is that they are a just bigger marketing company than us and our professional opinion does not matter…
Anyhow, here is a video where you can see what we mean:
I want with this example to remind everyone that the regular health checks of your products matter and if you are lucky someone to show you a problem, to be grateful and take advantage of the free opportunity to fix it.
At the end I want to quote a Danish Proverb that says “A little stone may upset a large cart“.
I hope we will manage to avoid the stones on our road with quality work and attention to the details.
There is a Scottish proverb that says “Do not judge by appearances. A rich heart may be under a poor coat.” I like it a lot, but when I look for a service or product my judgment always begins with appearances. For example, if you offer an SEO service, I will check how your own website is doing. I will never take advice or buy a service from someone who doesn’t apply it on their own website.
Nowadays, it is very trendy for everyone to write about Core Web Vitals. The posts are usually more or less the same, full of new terms, but they repeat what the official statement says. Here you can see a brief and slightly different opinion.
Whenever I see multiple, 5-star reviews, I’m suspicious. The same goes for websites with positive reviews from unknown third-party providers (not Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor, etc.) or websites with “John Doe” and “Jane Doe” reviews. (By the way, our other website seogalway.com uses these popular techniques)
