Google Page Experience Update and Core Web Vitals

Google Page Experience Update and Core Web Vitals is a ranking algorithm update that was rolled out on October 1, 2018. The update targets sites with low-quality user experience by adding a signal to the web search ranking algorithm. Sites with better user experience will get higher rankings in Google SERPs than those which do not have good UX. This blog post explains what the new algorithm is, how it impacts your website and what you can do to avoid being penalized by Google.

Google’s Page Experience Update (PXU) is an update that impacts how Google ranks websites in the search engine results pages (SERPs). The PXU focuses on web page loading times and navigation. After this update, Google ranks sites higher if they load faster. If you want to improve your site’s ranking in SERPs and increase traffic, you should invest time and resources into improving your website speed.

CWV is a free tool from Google that analyzes a website’s performance based on best practices for mobile-friendliness, accessibility, progressive web apps, et al., as well as information about the user’s connection type such as wifi or cellular data. This analysis can be done through either the CWV tool or using the Page Speed Insights tool.

When it comes to assessing the user experience on a website, technical health and metrics are important. These include looking at how quickly page content loads in comparison with various aspects of speed such as responsiveness or stability during loading time; also whether browser windows close when they should after being minimized without warning from an external source like ads popping up suddenly while using an app that displays video clips

What should you focus on?

There are many ways to measure the performance of your website, but one popular way involves integrating new Core Web Vitals metrics into an on-page experience. By gathering data about visitors’ interactions with each page they visit and how quickly those pages load for them – or even if it takes too long at all! — you can make improvements that will improve user engagement while also increasing site traffic.

Google has introduced new signals to rank pages that will make it easier for users and search engines alike. The Google Page Experience Signal includes mobile-friendliness, safe browsing by providing HTTPS connections when available (or SSL), as well several other factors like intrusive interstitials or large contentful paints which can be improved with LCP – largest content full paint technique; FID – first input delay and CLS – Cumulative Layout Shift.

FID – First Input Delay ensures that the browser responds quickly to a user’s first interaction with your page. CLS – Cumulative Layout Shift includes layout-shifting attributes, like size attribute on images and video elements or reserving space through CSS aspect ratio boxes so the content will never be inserted above existing content unless it was explicitly requested by someone interacting directly with those interactive components; this can help prevent users from accidentally clicking out of one window into another because their viewport has scrolled beyond where you want them to go next!
