Web Vitals for WordPress
--
Web Vitals (https://web.dev/vitals/) is an initiative by Google to provide unified guidance for quality signals that are essential to delivering a great user experience on the web. Site owners should not have to be performance gurus in order to understand the quality of experience they are delivering to their users. The Web Vitals initiative aims to simplify the landscape, and help sites focus on the metrics that matter most, the Core Web Vitals.

Core Web Vitals are the subset of Web Vitals that apply to all web pages and each of the Core Web Vitals represents a part of user experience that is measurable in the field. Site owners should pay attention because an upcoming Search ranking change incorporates these page experience metrics (https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2020/05/evaluating-page-experience.html).

This talk explores how WordPress developers and website owners can check, monitor, and improve these vitals. I’ll dive into some technical details about the Core Web Vitals, while also providing some helpful graphics that help illustrate the key concepts. I’ll talk about how each Vital relates to WordPress and the technical stack delivering the site and offer concrete advice on how to improve each aspect.
