Web Vitals – Essential Metrics for a Healthy Site
Google Search Console replaced the speed report with a core web vitals report. Now, the PageSpeed Insights report also was updated to show the core web vitals report and data. Core web vitals metrics show a blue label or badge next to it.
Glenn Gabe shared a screenshot on Twitter “FYI PageSpeed Insights was just updated with Core Web Vitals info. You will also see blue badges next to the metrics that make up core web vitals. And you will see field data about passing the Core Web Vitals assessment (or not). As of yesterday, the old metrics were still there.”
John Mueller from Google also said about this on Reddit to explain “These are from the Core Web Vitals, which we’re adding in most of the places where we show speed metrics. You can visit at https://web.dev/vitals/ where you can find more details about the web vital metrics.”
There is a lot of discussion about this core web vitals because Google is adding these metrics to many reports.
