How important is it for creators or content managers to understand core web vitals? How much should we collaborate with our devs to get it right?
The Complete Guide to Core Web Vitals is a truly comprehensive look at the user experience metrics Google uses to assess website health. It provides a good amount of context for understanding your technical SEO performance, and what to optimize on the backend for the best results. Including some of Google’s own explanations, in their own words, is a nice touch, too — sometimes you just want to know what Google had to say about it.
There’s a lot of what in this core web vitals eBook, but less so of the “how” or “why.” Search Engine Journal certainly digs into a few points of interest, but we’d love to see more direct, how-to instruction. More showing instead of telling. While this is a great conceptual guide, you may need some secondary resources as you get into the nitty gritty of improving or altering the specifics of your site.
