Your Child's First Dental Visit: What To Expect

What is "Core Web Vitals"?

Core Web Vitals is the name given to the group of Google's three main measurements of a website's user experience, and this assessment will be going live this summer as a search engine ranking factor. As these parameters are technical in nature and the documentation is geared more for developers as opposed to business owners, I will be writing in depth in the very near future about web vitals from practical standpoint, so those of you who are interested in learning more can do so. For reference, these measurements are: Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS).

What's the Take Home Message?

Because these Core Web Vitals measurements will be ranking factors for search engine listings, we will need to:

  • (a) evaluate where your website currently stands
  • (b) determine what if any changes need to be made
  • (c) implement these changes and
  • (d) keep an eye on the site to make sure things stay stable, as Google intends to include more parameters in the future in their assessment.

For the time being, tech SEO’s and the developer community…[and website owners are]… stuck having to “fix” what isn’t broken in order to make it abide to Google’s idea of what the web should look like.

What are We Doing at SHD?

My team and I are working to determine the best way for us to provide you with Core Web Vitals compliance at a reasonable and affordable fee for our clients. As it appears that Google is now focusing on engagement (whereas with SSL they first focused on security), we want to make sure that all engagement-related website parameters are addressed, improved, and monitored.
