Street Photography and the associate websites and blogs are the elements of my main hobby. I say main, as I do have other hobbies.
Over the years I have experiments with different forms of hosting and software but as I have progressed I have found must hosting service to be very restrictive and constraining so I have tended towards self hosting solutions. I have tried many software solutions but eventually settled of Rapidweaver however I do operate a number of Wordpress Sites which I will discontinue over the next two years.
One problem that I have had is that according to Google my sites failed to meet their strict requirements for mobile sites [Core Web Vitals]. I have tried multiple solutions but the changes have been minor. At best my rating was about 37%
Recently things at Rapidweaver have become complicated and as a result I may not be able to depend on their software going forward so I have had to examine other solutions and one that I investigated is Sparkle which performs very well if Google Core Web Vitals is the gold standard. I should mention that I do intend to remain with Rapidweaver and I will employ their new solutions going forward but I will also employ other solutions. I am also testing Blocs 4.
Web Vitals is an initiative by Google to provide unified guidance for quality signals that are essential to delivering a great user experience on the web.
Google has provided a number of tools over the years to measure and report on performance. Some developers are experts at using these tools, while others have found the abundance of both tools and metrics challenging to keep up with.
Site owners should not have to be performance gurus in order to understand the quality of experience they are delivering to their users. The Web Vitals initiative aims to simplify the landscape, and help sites focus on the metrics that matter most, the Core Web Vitals.
Core Web Vitals are the subset of Web Vitals that apply to all web pages, should be measured by all site owners, and will be surfaced across all Google tools. Each of the Core Web Vitals represents a distinct facet of the user experience, is measurable in the field, and reflects the real-world experience of a critical user-centric outcome.
The metrics that make up Core Web Vitals will evolve over time. The current set for 2020 focuses on three aspects of the user experience—loading, interactivity, and visual stability—and includes the following metrics (and their respective thresholds).
