Google Core Web Vital updates for independent shoe retailer in Corbridge

Finale Shoes, Website Maintenance and Support, Corbridge

Finale Shoes sells shoes online and in their store in Corbridge. They approached us to look at making some improvements to their Shopify website.

We benchmarked the website with Google’s PageSpeed Insights tool, to establish how they currently scored for Performance, Web Accessibility, Best Practices and SEO.

From the report we collated some quick-win improvements we could make and Finale had some changes as well. We were able to do this in a short amount of time but see some great wins on the scores.
