Are you unsure what Google’s Core Web Vitals are or do you know what they are and are looking to optimize your site for them? Either way, you have found the guide for you! Google’s Core Web Vitals is Google’s initiative to help website owners improve user experience and quality on their website. In this video, we’ll explain what Google’s Core Web Vitals are and how to optimize your WordPress site for Google’s Core Web Vitals.
The three primary quality tests for Google’s Web vitals are:
Largest Contentful Paint(LCP)
First Input Delay(FID)
Cumulative Layout Shift(CLS)
Largest Contentful Paint covers how quickly the main content becomes visible to your users as your site can load fast but the largest content on your site may have a delay before it shows to your users.
First Input Delay measures how long it takes a user’s browser to actually be able to process events from user interaction.
Cumulative Layout Shift measures how long it takes for a site to become stable, this would be when users try to load a page but different sections shift during the loading process.
You can test a page’s core web vitals using Google’s Page Seed Insights tool on the URL below:
If you would prefer to test your entire site, you would go under Google Search Console, and under Enhancements, there should be a section labeled Core Web Vitals.
