Washington Post shares SEO and web performance guidelines

The Washington Post has published a document outlining its internal SEO and web performance best practices that anybody in news SEO will want to read.

The document, Web Performance and SEO Best Practices and Guidelines, outlines what the Post calls “proven strategies and guidelines for optimizing web performance and search engine optimization (SEO).”

SEO and web performance best practices. The Post’s document breaks down all of its guidelines into what is essentially a checklist, consisting of four buckets: on-page SEO, content optimization, technical SEO and off-page SEO.

The web performance guidelines focus on loading, rendering and responsiveness. It also shares many of the tools it uses to monitor performance – including Lighthouse, WebPageTest, Google Search Console and Google Analytics.

The purpose of the guidelines. The Post wants to make sure it:

  • Provides a positive user experience.
  • Increases website visibility.
  • Drives organic traffic.
  • Improves the site’s overall success.

What they’re saying. The document was officially announced today, although it appears the document was published May 31. The Post said it is publicly sharing its guidelines and tools to help others ensure their “own site practices are optimal”:

  • “We identified a need for a Web Performance and SEO engineering team to build technical solutions that support the discovery of our journalism, as the majority of news consumers today read the news digitally. Without proper SEO and web performance, our stories aren’t as accessible to our readers,” according to Arturo Silva, engineering lead.

  1. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the
    same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by
    the way!

  2. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this write-up
    to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

  4. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  5. Good site! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
