Core Web Vitals Audits
Our SEO experts will meticulously review your website’s load speed and user experience to ensure it’s compliant with all three Core Web Vitals metrics. If your website fails to meet passing scores for any of the metrics, we’ll identify ways to improve your website’s load speed, page templates, or user experience to ensure compliance. We then create an actionable plan for moving forward and will work with your internal team or website developer to implement fixes and improve Core Web Vitals scores.
What Are the Core Web Vitals Metrics?
With the initial rollout of Core Web Vitals, Google announced that they’ll be focusing on three specific user experience metrics: Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS).
- LCP measures the render time of the largest text block or image visible within the viewport upon loading a webpage.
- FID measures the time between a user’s interaction with a page and when the browser executes the action in response.
- CLS measures unexpected layout shifts that occur on a webpage (i.e. images, ads, or iframes that dynamically resize without any user interaction).
