Google launches Web Vitals to measure and site performance

Google launches Web-announced a new service today called Web Vitals, aimed at web developers and site managers,

which gives them a unified interface that contains all the indicators

for tracking user experience and the performance of their sites.

Google believes that its new service gives the basic indicators

to maintain the quality of the user experience on the web.

Google has been providing over the past years tools to help website owners, marketers and developers improve their user experience. But now it offers its own set of statistical tools and indicators.

believes that site owners are not supposed to know many technical details about the performance of their sites,

so its initiative comes to simplify the scene in front of them

so that it helps them to understand the indicators that they need only.

emphasizes that over time it will develop the indicators provided by its service, and currently focuses on the user experience on three axes,

namely download – interactive – and visual stability.

whether it is good, needs improvement, or weak.

Google asserts that over time it will develop the indicators provided by its service. Currently, it focuses on the user experience on three axes,

whether it is good, needs improvement, or weak.

As the web becomes more feature-rich, speed and performance are a constant concern. The Google Chrome team has a new “Web Vitals”

the initiative that brings together “quality signals that are essential to delivering a great user experience on the web.”

Google says that the three “2020 Core Web Vitals” are “critical to all web experiences,” and reflect common use cases. They cover loading experience, interactivity, and visual stability of page content:

“2020 Core Web Vitals

  • Largest Contentful Paint 
  • measures perceived load speed
  • Mark the point in the page load timeline when the page’s main content has likely loaded.
  • First Input Delay measures responsiveness and quantifies the experience users feel when trying to first interact with the page.
  • Cumulative Layout Shift measures visual stability and quantifies the amount of unexpected layout shift of visible page content.

Moving forward, Google will update Lighthouse,

Chrome DevTools, PageSpeed Insights, and Search Console’s Speed Report with guidance on how to improve each metric.

Web Vitals will be updated annually with new measurements as the current edition does not yet provide a “complete set of metrics that captures the ideal user experience on the web.”

Google is also looking to create better tools for measuring page speed and other key user behaviors:

I indicate, I know it was my option to read, but I in fact believed youd have something interesting to state. All I listen to is a number of whimpering about something that you could take care of if you werent too hectic looking for attention.

  3. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Thanks!

  5. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?

  8. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

  9. I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome blog!
