The launch of Google’s upcoming Page Experience algorithm update has been rescheduled from May to mid-June 2021.
What does this means for You?
This means’ You have more time left – to get Your website up-on-track with the 3 main “core web vitals”:
1. Loading- while measuring this, we take a look at LCP.
LCP (Largest Contentful Paint)- LCP measures the loading performance of a webpage. For a good user experience, LCP should be within 2.5 seconds once the page start loading.
2. Interactivity- while measuring the interactivity of the webpage, we look at FID.
FID (First Input Delay)- FID should e less than 100 milliseconds for pages if they want o keep the page high ad’s interactivity provides a great user experience.
3. Visual stability- while measuring visual strength, we look at CLS.
CLS (Cumulative layout shift) – For good user experience, CLS should be less than 0.1
Other search signals for page experience besides core web vitals are:
- Mobile Friendliness: It looks after whether or not the sites are optimized for mobile devices. When pages are explored on cell phones, the content included is meaningful and whether joins and on-page components are interactive and open.
- Safe Browsing: It is to assess whether a site has issues, for example, malware, phishing, and hacked content, to guarantee that users can go through the pages securely.
- HTTPS: Focuses on whether the site’s association is secure and if the site is being served over HTTPS or not.
- Non-Intrusive Interstitials: Ensures that vital on-page content isn’t blocked for clients as they are exploring the page.
Web pages targeting to hit the metrics should aim at meeting all metrics at the 75th percentile of the page loads o all the devices from mobile to desktops. Core web vitals change from time to time and are revised regularly in few years as the user’s expectations change.
