Technical SEO & Core Web Vitals

Understanding the Google Core Web Vitals update is important for all businesses relying on their online presence to sell.

Page speed is now the #1 factor for your website performance, so a slow-loading site will result in lost visitors and, ultimately, lost sales. 

At Blueocto, we perform technical SEO audits and help develop a practical strategy that yields tangible results.

Web Accessibility

There are over 10 million disabled people in the UK with a wide range of needs.

Thankfully, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2) provide a comprehensive list of standards to ensure everyone can access and enjoy the internet. 

You may already recognise the importance of web accessibility standards, but lots of businesses have yet to really adapt to a more accessible online mindset.

Need help meeting the standards or want to know how to become more accessible online? You’ve come to the right place.
