The first web vitals metric is Largest Contentful Paint (LCP). This web vital measures the time in seconds that it takes from the page to start loading to when the largest webpage element pops up on the screen.

The goal of measuring this web vital is to determine the estimated amount of time that it takes for the main elements of a web page to load. In other words, it determines how fast your web page pops up for visitors to use.

The lower your LCP is, the better your website will rank:

  • 2.5 seconds or less is good
  • Between 2.5 and 4 seconds needs improvement
  • More than 4 seconds is poor

Find out your LCP score and determine whether you need to make improvements. You may need to make images smaller or get a quicker server.
