Do you have a website? Do you want your online business to get found better in top Google search results? Then, this is a must-read for you. Google has announced its upcoming major search rankings change that will completely incorporate with last month announced Core Web Vitals as a crucial ranking signal. The update will evaluate the overall experience of a page for its viewers and share search engine rank based on the overall result. Let us also confirm that this newly announced ranking signal is in the early stages of development and will not get live until the next year – 2021.
As this major update is not scheduled to launch for the next six months at least, website owners have plenty enough time to prepare for it with absolute solutions.
Now Let’s Check the New Page Experience Signals
The upcoming page experience signal will include Core Web Vitals and also previously announced page experience metrics.
Core Web Vitals
The above image-mentioned Core Web Vitals and their components have already been introduced by Google last month. The global tech giant has announced three Core Web Vitals as mentioned below.
Loading or Largest Contentful Paint (LCP):
This Core Web Vital determines the total time taken by a webpage to load its main content. The ideal LCP time determined by Google is 2.5 seconds or less. More than 4-second LCP is a poor ranking signal for your website.
Interactivity or First Input Delay (FID):
The FID Core Web Vital measures the total time for a webpage to become interactive. The ideal First Input Delay measure time is 100 milliseconds or less. If your website has FID of 300 milliseconds or above, then it needs immediate improvement.
Visual Stability or Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS):
This Core Web Vital measures the amount of unexpected layout shift of your visual page content. The ideal measurement announced is 0.1 or less than that. If the page experience measures 0.25 or more than that your webpage requires immediate attention from professionals to this field.
The search giant also announced that the Core Web Vitals are not constant and they may change from time to time depending on user expectation from an optimally performing web page.
Tools to Evaluate Page Experience and Improve
There are no specific tools available yet to measure all the all page experience and Core Web Vitals as a whole. But, there are tools available to evaluate individual components of page experience signal. When it comes to measuring Core Web Vitals, we are now
