Core Web Vitals SEO

Core Web Vitals SEO In 2021

Table of Contents

Any website's long-term success hinges on its ability to provide a high-quality user experience. Core Web Vitals can help you measure the experience of your site and find possibilities for improvement, whether you're a business owner, marketer, or developer.

Google's Web Vitals program aims to provide unified guidelines for quality signals that are critical to providing a great web experience.

What are ?

Google considers Core Web Vitals to be a set of particular elements that contribute to a webpage's overall user experience. Three specific page performance and user interaction statistics make up Core Web Vitals: greatest contentful paint, initial input delay, and cumulative layout shift.

The subset of Web Vitals that apply to all web pages should be measured by all site owners, and will be surfaced across all Google tools is known as Core Web Vitals. Each of the Core Web Vitals represents a unique aspect of the user experience, is field quantifiable, and reflects real-world experience with a vital user-centric consequence.

Over time, the metrics that makeup Core Web Vitals will change. The present collection of measures (and their related criteria) focuses on three areas of the user experience: loading, interactivity, and visual stability.

WEB VITALS EXTENSION JULY 2021 UI

The Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is a metric that gauges loading speed. LCP should happen within 2.5 seconds of the page starting to load to give a pleasant user experience.

Interactivity is measured by the First Input Delay (FID). Pages with an FID of 100 milliseconds or fewer should give a satisfactory user experience.

The Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) is a visual stability metric. Pages with a CLS of 0.1 or less should deliver an excellent user experience.

The 75th percentile of page loads, divided across mobile and desktop devices, is a useful threshold to measure for each of the above metrics to ensure you're hitting the recommended target for most of your consumers.

Importance Of Core Web Vitals in SEO

The most critical metrics to track to understand your users' experiences are Core Web Vitals since when users have positive experiences, wonderful things happen! This is very helpful in .

The Web Vitals Chrome extension is one of the tools of the Web Vitals toolbox that displays performance data about the pages you visit when browsing the web.

Many factors influence page performance, including hardware and network quality. The way you interact with a page on your computer may differ significantly from how the majority of users interact with it. That's why the new feature in version 1.0 of the Web Vitals extension combines real-user data from the Chrome UX Report (CrUX) with your local Core Web Vitals measures.

Remember CrUX, we are going to use it a lot in this post from here on.

How To Optimize Core Web Vitals For Google?

Optimizing core web vitals is an advanced practice. It requires a good knowledge of web pages, web design, and servers. And the is quite noticeable.

But to ease our lives, Google has come up with this extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/web-vitals/ahfhijdlegdabablpippeagghigmibma?hl=en

This web vitals extension shows a lot of useful metrics to improve our page performances.

CrUX is a public dataset of real-world Chrome user experiences. Some of the most important tools in the Core Web Vitals workflow, such as and PageSpeed Insights, are powered by it.

The CrUX dataset on BigQuery and the CrUX API make the raw data for millions of websites publicly queryable. The CrUX API page and origin-level desktop data are now included in the Web Vitals addon.

Data on user experience is categorized into three categories: good, requires improvement, and terrible. In the recommendations for each of the Core Web Vitals metrics: LCP, FID, and CLS, the thresholds utilized for each rating are documented.

The CrUX API, for example, may inform you that 16 percent of real-user experiences on a certain page are rated as having good LCP under 2.5 seconds.

WEB VITALS

Your local experience is built on top of the broader distribution of real-user experiences via the new Web Vitals extension interface.

It's similar to when you're in a large space, such as a shopping mall, and there's a big map with all of the stores and a pin labeled “YOU ARE HERE” to help you orient yourself and make your way about.

For each metric, the distributions of real-user data from CrUX are displayed out on a horizontal bar. On those horizontal bars, your local experiences are displayed as single points.

Your local experience's position on the horizontal bar reveals where it lies in relation to the real-user distributions. When your local experience differs significantly from that of other users, this should be immediately corrected.

If you have a slow LCP experience and just 1% of other users have the same problem, something special must have occurred.

Using field data from phones to make comparisons

By default, all of the information in the Web Vitals add-on is based on real-world experiences from desktop users. After all, this extension is only available on Chrome's desktop versions, so it'd be most useful to see how users react to the page or origin under comparable circumstances.

It's also crucial to understand what phone customers are going through, thus the extension features an advanced setting on the Options page that enables you to compare your local experience to field phone data.

Follow these procedures to activate phone data in the extension:

  • Select Options by right-clicking on the extension icon in the toolbar.
  • Select the option to compare local experiences to phone field data.

In a few locations, the UI will change to show which mode you're in. Be aware that the experiences of real phone users may differ significantly from those of desktop users, so use this function with caution.

Final Words

Enhancing page experience will not only assist in future-proof your website's performance by putting it in the best possible position to capitalize on the next algorithm update, but it will also assure great experiences for users.

Core Web Vitals improvement is not just about meeting the new Google Standards. It is about improving the page experience of your visitors coming from . This will have positive effects in both the long and short term.

  • yaswanth avatar yaswanth Now I use the Search console live URL inspector. It shows the page source and screenshot with an error(If any).
    Result: The page is not mobile friendly in the screenshot. All the element's styles are broken.

    Now, I feel like, " What the hell is happening in rich result tester? The google bot shows everything is ok, and in the search console, this is happening."

    # Problem Digging Stage final stage - Solving the problem
    The easiest way to solve the problem is to compare the thing and find the difference.
    Is rich results tester a google bot? Yes!
    Is it owned by google? Yes!
    Is it have any link with the official search console crawler? No!

    Now, What is the difference between 2 crawlers?
    Their IPs are different. They work differently.

    Summary: Google bot (Offical bot) is not able to crawl all elements in the webpage. It is not able to read all styling files. All other bots(services that use crawl as Google Bot) can view/crawl the page.

    List of official google bot IPs: https://developers.google.com/search/apis/ipranges/googlebot.json

    Solution: Rather than digging into all files, we changed the hosting server located in the exact location.

    Thank you for reading this article. It takes a few mins to read this article, but It took hours to find the correct problem with a solution. If you find this article valuable, give it a like and if you have any questions, feel free to ask them.
  • yaswanth avatar yaswanth Solving Critical Indexing Problem (CASE STUDY)

    Last week I received a message from a friend he is requesting me to help him index a page of his website. I said, " Wait, sometime google will index automatically" Then he said he was getting problem with his homepage. So, I started digging. First, I want to find the problem. Then all other things were easy.

    # Problem Digging Stage 1 - Analyze the top layers
    Checking the basic things
    1) No Index tags
    2) Canonical tags
    3) Website page Age

    Result: Nothing Found

    # Problem Digging Stage 2 - Getting Deeper
    1) Checking status codes (If there is any redirects, 404 error, or soft 404 errors)
    2) Using an SEO browser to check the web page accessibility
    3) Trying with different user agents

    Result: Nothing Found

    # Problem Digging Stage 3 - Analyzing and
    comparing past and current stages of webpage
    1) Checking the Wayback machine for any spam content history
    2) Checking the search console for errors
    3) Other page's indexability

    Result: I got some clue. Search console shows "Page is not mobile friendly."

    # Problem Digging Stage 4 -Finding the reason for the search console error.
    When I checked the web page with SEO Browser, the page was mobile friendly, and I also tried "crawl as Googlebot." Everything looks good. Then where is the problem?

    One thing was confirmed google is not able to view the webpage clearly. And all other bots are not getting any problems.

    So, I decided to use only google properties in the further process (Because only the google bot gets stuck).
    I selected three tools to process further.
    1) Google page speed insights
    2) Google rich results tester
    3) Search console Live URL inspector

    First, I used page speed insights to check If the google bot can crawl/view the page or not(If there are any issues in crawling, then the tool returns a lighthouse error)
    Result: everything is ok

    Second I used Google rich results tester. It provides the page source and screenshot of the webpage.
    Result: everything is ok

  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 <@211319858258771968> it sure will work. Make sure to write that it’s free to post as guests. A lot of websites do not mention this and writers usually think it’s paid opportunity only.

    Keep us updated of how well this goes for your website.
  • soutaraku avatar soutaraku Thank you so much for the detailed guide. I'll see if I can put up the Guest Post page to start with! I hope my email gets bombarded in a good way haha
  • ddev66 avatar ddev66 You should start putting up a page called Guest Posting on your other website where you put articles, etc.. and put all the requirements there which you are looking for in the guest posts. Make sure to leave your email as well for easier contacts.

    Build up some links to this page. Because most of the writers are looking to write for high metrics website that have good DA, TF, etc...

    Once you have a page setup it will help you get attention from people who are searching on Google.

    Next you can start sending the URL of this page to people whom you think might be interested to write for your service on social networks like twitter, linkedin, etc.

    Also list this page URL on websites that have posts like free guest posts list in SaaS, free guest posts list in "your niche", etc. Something like this: https://underwp.com/the-best-free-guest-posting-websites-list-in-2022-over-3000/

    These will get you enough traction to attract guest posts from various contributors over the time. Your email will be bombarded with emails following the above tips.

  • nkap avatar nkap <@341197404302737408> Just these:

    You can try 3 things: (I suggest you try the 3rd option first)

    1. If there are any links in your coverage report that’s actually not from your domain/property, I’d recommend you use the Search Console’s removal tool to remove these from your property.

    2. If you’re using any page builders like elementor etc make sure you turn off search engine indexing for things like templates. You can find this in Yoast SEO settings. With this setting your templates and unnecessary pages won’t be indexed. Are you using elementor by any chance?

    3. It’s also possible that your site has been hacked. If random URLs are appearing in analytics and search console the first thing that you should do is check your .htaccess file to see if someone has put any rewrite rules.
