Use core web vitals data to improve SEO
Use the Core web vitals charts to understand how your browser performs according to Google's Core Web Vitals. These include:
- LCP: Largest contentful paint, which measures loading performance
- FID: First input delay, which measures interactivity between user input and browser response
- CLS: Cumulative layout shift, which measures visual stability in the browser page
Higher scores can help your organization save money and influence SEO. Lower scores can affect your users' perceptions of your organization's website, which could result in dissatisfied customers or lost business opportunities.
