Largest Contentful Paint Test
About Largest Contentful Paint Test
This test will check the Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) metric of the analyzed webpage. LCP is a Core Web Vitals metric that measures when the largest element (image or text block) of a given web page becomes visible within the viewport, relative to when the page first started loading. To provide a good user experience, sites should strive to have Largest Contentful Paint of 2.5 seconds or less.
The reason Google chose LCP as a relevant SEO metric is that it directly influences user experience. The loading of the biggest element on a page determines how quickly the user will be able to view its contents and interact with it. For most websites, you can improve the Largest Contentful Paint by sticking to a few guiding principles:
- Try to reduce the server response time.
- Optimize the loading times for resources on the webpage.
