If you ever wanted to know what the user experience was like on your web page, there is a way to measure that. It’s important that you have a quick loading speed and if not, look into making it a bit more user friendly. Nobody wants to stay on a page for very long when they’re looking for information. They also want to be able to click on and use the site features without too much lag.
- Largest Contentful Paint is about how fast a web page’s main content loads so the user can view it.
- First Input Delay is when the user starts interacting with the page and how much delay they perceive on that action.
- Google is working on new tools for their core web vitals such as a chrome extension and more developer tools for measuring these important metrics.
“Users’ expectations for web experiences can vary according to site and context, but some remain consistent regardless of where they are on the web.”
