We all want our website to score better in Core Web Vitals after Google announced that they will be putting more weight into user experience of the website when ranking in Google. LCP, FID and CLS are those Core Web Vitals. 

Having a good score on all 3 vitals seemed to be a pretty impossible task, If we are using themes and plugins to develop the site. Luckily, most of the themes have caught up with the trend and have updated their framework to support this. However, when we finish building our sites with the said themes it will still not satisfy Google. So we rely on caching plugins. I would like to give a shoutout to DIVI, as they have been a spotlight of my dev career. They have made my life so much easier when doing freelance projects. That’s another story for another day!

Plugins I’ve tried before

I’ve used numerous caching plugins for a span of 7 years. Here are some honorable mentions. Please forgive me if I missed your favorite. 🙁  

  • WP Rocket
  • W3 Total Cache
  • Fast Velocity Minify 
  • Autoptimize
  • Hummingbird
  • LiteSpeed Cache

Are they cheating?

The plugins mentioned above do a great job of speeding up your website. Problem is that they do not help on passing the Web Vitals most of the time. I had lost hope on finding the best caching plugin, until one day one of my clients suggested trying out Nitropack. At first the results he showed me were too good to be true. Some people accuse Nitropack of using Black Hat SEO methods and that they are cheating, it is that mind blowing. I decided to give it a try and understand the inner workings of it. I was surprised to see the results, and I have been using and recommending it to my clients ever since.

Is it bad for SEO?

Here’s the client that suggested that I should use nitropack. They heavily rely on organic traffic and search ranking matters to them a lot. And nitropack provided significant results on achieving higher search ranking for it. So you can take your mind out of the gutter. Nitropack is not using Black Hat SEO methods and Google does not punish your website for using Nitropack. My client has been using nitropack for more than 2 years now! And yes, I’ve built that website.
