Hawke flagged various opportunities to improve site load times. The first contentful paint (FCP) went from 10.5 to 8.5 seconds and the largest content paint (LCP) went from 35.6 to 8.3 seconds. This instantly boosted organic rankings.

Next, Hawke rewrote metadata for the main service pages, revised page structure, and created eight new content pages to answer search queries. Hawke also audited backlinks and provided alt text for all website imagery.
