SoCast Engage: Now Faster Than Ever!

By Kat (SoCast) Dec 5, 2023 | 3:21 PM

SoCast is thrilled to announce an important update to our Engage platform: major site speed optimizations. In the digital world, speed is key, and we’re ensuring your radio station’s website is at the forefront of this fast-paced environment.

Why Speed Matters

  • First Impressions: Quick-loading sites draw in more listeners and advertisers.
  • User Experience: Fast websites mean easy and enjoyable access to your content.
  • SEO Boost: Speedier sites rank higher on search engines, attracting more visitors.
  • More Revenue: A swift site increases visitor engagement, opening up advertising opportunities.

Our Approach

Using Google Lighthouse, we’ve fine-tuned your websites for optimal performance. This includes faster content loading, optimized images and media, and streamlined code. These enhancements make your site more responsive and user-friendly, especially on mobile devices and slower connections.

The Impact

This upgrade is more than a technical improvement; it’s an investment in your listeners’ satisfaction and your station’s digital success. Since the upgrade, Google’s Lighthouse Web Performance Metrics are up by an average of 10% on most sites, and Google’s INP Core Web Vitals are currently ranging from 40ms-100ms with an average of about 80ms which is below Google’s target INP score of 200ms.

With SoCast Engage’s new speed optimizations, your radio station is set to make a lasting, positive impression online.
