Google recently introduced three new core metrics that are crucial for search rankings
A few months back during May 2020, Google had highlighted its ‘Core Web Vitals’ metrics. The platform has now confirmed that these core elements will play a crucial role in influencing search rankings in the upcoming year. These core elements are said to roll out over the next year.
The new elements will play a vital role in maximising your search rankings and help you stay at the top of the search results. The core elements include :
1. Largest Contentful Paint
The above aspect takes into account the loading performance of the key visual elements after a user clicks on it. Google has recommended a speed of 2.5 seconds for the page to load to create an enhanced user experience.
2. First Input Delay
This element takes into consideration the level of interactiveness of your page that will allow users to click and search. Google recommends an FID of less than 100 milliseconds.
3.Cumulative Layout Shift
Last, the cumulative layout shift takes into consideration the visual stability. It shows that poor stability will lead to lower page ranking.
Google is also planning to test new ways for aligning pages with these new signals in search results.
