WEBFI-WordPress-How to Optimize Core Web Vitals for WordPress Ultimate Guide



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:
https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights

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.

Depending on what you are looking to improve we have a few different resources that you would find helpful below:

    Thank you for the video. I just won't use Monster Insights because it slows WordPress performance I always advise my clients to use Google Analytics where I usually build a custom dashboard for them.

    How do I fix LCP on <p> elements? I tried to reduce the font-size and the line-height but it didn't work.

    Hello, In the title bar of my website it shows like this: (false)Home,….for every page. I have no idea why it is happening? Could you help me, please?

    So Sucuri basically does the same thing as WordFence plus Cloudfare combined? Am I getting that right?

    But I have a question :
    How to make sure that the speed optimising and image optimising plugins are compatible with the page builders that we use?
