Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

SEO has always played a vital part in the success or failure of a Shopify based store. A level playing fields means it's up to you to perform better than your competitors. Folklore understand this well, and place a high level of importance on the content of their site. Zuma works with Folklore to to ensure that not only does their site perform well with Google Search but also maintains a high level of great User Experience (UX).

Core Web Vitals

Recently, Google's new algorithm, has also place an importance on what it collectively refers to as 'Core Web Vitals'. These aspects of your site include;

  • Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): measures loading performance. To provide a good user experience, LCP should occur within 2.5 seconds of when the page first starts loading.
  • First Input Delay (FID): measures interactivity. To provide a good user experience, pages should have a FID of 100 milliseconds or less.
  • Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): measures visual stability. To provide a good user experience, pages should maintain a CLS of 0.1. or less.

We worked closely with Folklore to ensure their site wasn't being penalised by these new rules and continue the high SEO performance they benefit from.
