  • Optimizing Website Performance: LCP, FID & CLS

    Hello everyone,

    In today's digital age, having a website that provides a seamless user experience is crucial for businesses to succeed online. With the introduction of Google's Core Web Vitals, website owners need to prioritize website performance to ensure their website's ranking on search engines.

    In this post, we will be discussing the three Core Web Vitals that you need to know about: LCP, FID, and CLS.
    1. Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): LCP measures how long it takes for the largest piece of content on your website to load. This is usually an image, video, or block of text. For a good user experience, LCP should be under 2.5 seconds. If your LCP is longer than 4 seconds, it's considered poor.
    2. First Input Delay (FID): FID measures the time it takes for your website to respond to user input. This could be clicking a link or filling out a form. For a good user experience, FID should be under 100 milliseconds. If your FID is longer than 300 milliseconds, it's considered poor.
    3. Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): CLS measures how much your website layout shifts during loading. This can be frustrating for users as they are trying to interact with the website. For a good user experience, CLS should be under 0.1. If your CLS is higher than 0.25, it's considered poor.

    As website owners, it's important to optimize your website for these Core Web Vitals to ensure a great user experience. Popular Content Management Systems (CMS) such as Drupal and WordPress provide plugins and features that can help improve your website's Core Web Vitals. For example, Drupal has modules like "Lazy Load" that defer image loading, and WordPress has plugins like "Smush" that optimize images to improve website performance.

    In conclusion, understanding and optimizing the Core Web Vitals can help you provide a better user experience, improve website ranking on search engines, and ultimately drive more traffic to your website. If you're using Drupal or WordPress, be sure to take advantage of the available plugins and features to improve your website's Core Web Vitals.
