Core Web Vitals

Core Web Vitals: What do the individual KPIs mean?
For some time now, the Google PageSpeed analysis has also included factors for evaluating the user experience (UX), which are included in the Google PageSpeed Score and have thus made optimization even more difficult. Measurements are always mobile.

The following factors are measured:

Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
Layout shifts when loading the page (jerking): Frequent when, for example, advertising banners or images are loaded and no fixed dimensions are defined in the code. Cookie banners are also sometimes triggers for shifts in the layout of the page. The value must not exceed 0.1.

Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)
LCP measures when the largest content element in the display area is rendered on the screen. The LCP may last a maximum of 2.5 seconds.

First Input Delay (FID)
The FID measures how long a website takes to respond to the first user interaction. This evaluates the responsiveness of a website.
