Lighthouse SEO monitoring is now available at Oh Dear

We're proud to announce we have added a new check to our service: Lighthouse SEO. Using this check you can detect (and get solution suggestions) for SEO and performance problems.

What is Lighthouse

Lighthouse is a tool provided by Google for improving the quality of web pages. It has audits for performance, accessibility, progressive web apps, SEO, and more.

One of the key benefits of this check is that it provides specific, actionable suggestions for improving the quality of a website. For example, it may suggest optimizing images or minifying JavaScript to improve performance. By implementing these suggestions, a website can become faster, more accessible, and more secure, improving its ranking in search engine results.

When the Lighthouse check is enabled for your site, it will be run on a daily basis.

Seeing Lighthouse results at Oh Dear

When the Lighthouse SEO check is enabled for a site, you can see the results for your site on the Lighthouse check page. This page contains the scores, key metrics, and a graph picturing the trends of results

Here's how it might look like.

When you scroll a bit down, you'll see the full report as it was generated by Lighthouse, that contains the results and recommendations by all Lighthouse audits.

Get notified when Lighthouse detects issues

Oh Dear can send you a notification when one of the scores or metrics are not within expectations. On the settings page of the lighthouse check you have fine-grained control of when we should notify you.

Here's an example notification.

In closing

We think that the Lighthouse SEO check is a very powerful addition to our feature set. It will help you rank better on Google and get notified whenever an update to your site hurts SEO ranking.

If you're not using Oh Dear to monitor your site, now's the perfect time to get started. We monitor uptime, SSL certificates, broken links, scheduled tasks, application health, DNS, domain expiry and more. We send notifications when something's wrong. All that paired with a developer friendly API and kick-ass documentation.
