Podcast: Why we should(n't) care about Core Web Vitals for SEO

The relationship between Core Web Vitals and SEO

RUMvision's very first, so-called "podcast" is a reality. Together with Sasha Lazarchuk (SEO manager) at YOYABA, we talk about the relationship between Core Web Vitals and SEO. Over the years there has been a lot of confusion about this and it is sometimes quite difficult to find truth. Many different topics are covered, including user experience, different types of data, tools you can use, reporting from Core Web Vitals and how to communicate all of this to stakeholders.

Below is the video with timestamps forwarding to Youtube. We enjoyed the conversation ourselves and hope you may get something out of it too!

Big thanks to Sasha and YOYABA! ❤️

SEO is basically UX for me. It's about the users and the user experience.
