I ran my first Lighthouse report on this site. There’s a bunch of improvements to make. As of now, I managed to resolve some of them. I put up the links to the before and after Lighthouse reports at the end of this post. Please feel free to take a look at them.
A summary of the improvements I made:
langattribute to the
rel="noopener"to external links.
- Increase colour contrast between dark turquoise font and white smoke background.
- Replace the “Read more” link to “Continue reading X” where X is the title of the post.
I may have missed out some stuff since I wrote this post after implementing the improvements. My final score is still not perfect. I will need to put more effort into styling if I want to fix “non-sequential headings”. I chose
h2 is too big and
p is too small.
I ran the Lighthouse report for mobile after generating the reports for desktop. I knew I had to increase the size of the social media icons to make them more fat finger-friendly. I knew this because I had problems tapping on the icon I want. I should be focusing on this problem ASAP.
