Core web vitals

Core web vitals are a set of web development metrics developed by Google as guidance on quality signals for user experience on the web. These metrics include Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS).

Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)

Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) measures how quickly the largest block of content on a webpage loads. Generally, LCP should occur within 2.5 seconds of when the page first starts loading. More information can be found on site.

First Input Delay (FID) measures the time it takes from when the page contents are downloaded until the browser is first able to process user input. Generally, FID should be 100 milliseconds or less. More information can be found on

Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
