Improvements to published doc speed

You might’ve noticed we prioritize performance at Coda. A lot. And often. That’s because we recognize speed is a feature, whether our amazing maker community members are writing, reading, or collaborating.

As a business, it’s also important for us to make sure our core website domain performs wellーboth for our maker community and our overall SEO performance.

It might not surprise you, then, to learn that the intersection of our focus on performance and and work on our own domain has benefitted discoverable, published docs in the Doc Gallery a lot in the past six months. This doesn’t just make for a better experience for your readers, but it also helps your published docs search engine rankings!

In fact, in the past six months, the average doc has seen a greater than 50% improvement in Largest Contentful Paint, which is a metric that reflects how quickly the largest item visible to a user loads for them. (In other words, how long does it take for a page to load until what is shown is generally useful to other people?)

We’re proud to “pay it forward” when it comes to the work we do for our own site’s SEO; when you publish a discoverable doc on Coda, you reap the benefits of improved SEO performance for your ideas, frameworks, and templatesーwhile your readers get to delight in your interactive templates, community sites, and resource hubs.

Happy publishing!
