Lighthouse: Performance Score (Desktop)

severity-medium page-speed-performance-desktop-score


Utilizing Google's PageSpeed Insights (powered by Lighthouse), Constant Care for Kentico checks your score against the threshold in your settings (by default, your score should be at least 90).

Your Lighthouse scores can be very important to the success of your website. These days, a fast, performant, accessible, SEO-friendly website that follows best practices can have a major impact on your SERP.

If you are not appearing towards the top of Google searches, then you aren't getting as many visitors as you could be. And if you are not getting many visitors, then what is the point of writing all that content (or even having a website at all).

Having these Lighthouse checks will make sure your site is always doing the best it possibly can.

Check Logic

Constant Care for Kentico will ensure the Lighthouse Desktop Performance Score is at least 90 (default)
