That the optimization of the three Core Web Vitals is becoming important has been made more than clear by Google. However, there is no reason for webmasters to worry: various tools provide sufficient opportunities to identify and implement potential for optimizing FID, LCP and CLS. At the same time, you shouldn’t overstate the hype around Core Web Vitals.
First, two of the three metrics are metrics that existed before the introduction of Core Web Vitals was even known: While the importance of FID and LCP has increased due to their definition as Core Web Vitals – they are not new metrics. Only the Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) did not exist yet.
Nevertheless, the Core Web Vitals offer a very good opportunity to make presentable evaluations of the user experience on the basis of clear key figures. In this way, it can be shown very quickly and clearly which problems exist – and which of the tips mentioned can be implemented by website operators in order to satisfy their target groups.
