Monitor your site's Core Web Vitals
You've probably read this a thousand times by now: starting in May 2021, Core Web Vitals will be a new ranking factor for mobile search.
Although the real impact on rankings is yet to be seen, optimizing your Core Web Vitals is always a good idea because it's likely to improve user experience and conversions. So naturally, you want to keep a close eye on your site's performance.

Hi there 👋
Last week Glen Allsopp, founder of detailed.com and gaps.com, released his first blog post in a while!
In this 8k word article, he breaks down the exact process he used to sell $40, 10-minute video audits to make over 6 figures in profits (oh and he only sold video audits for 30 days).
It's a pretty phenomenal story, and I'm glad Glen is back! 👏👏
If you've also been following my weekly SEO case studies on Twitter, last week I analysed how Furniture 123 has seen their monthly organic traffic increase to 800k per month.
Until next time!Andrew Charlton
