Convertmind knowledge base
In short: Convertmind tracks the Web Vitals score of your most important pages daily and sends an alert when your score gets worse.
You might have heard about Google’s Web Vitals as it is getting more attention lately. Google recently announced that the Web Vitals becomes part of the next ranking algorithm update starting in May 2021.
Google considers three core factors as the most important overall user experience (UX). These Core Web Vitals consist out of three specific Page speed and User interaction measurements: largest contentful paint (LCP), first input delay (FID), and cumulative layout shift (CLS).Some people even say that Web Vitals are the best way to track your site speed..
Convertmind checks your Web Vital scores every day, for mobile and desktop devices. When the score, you’ll receive an alert in the app and via mail. This way you can stay on top of the game and spot weak site performance early on.We’ve heard plenty of stories of people making changes to a page resulting in slowing down the site without even realizing it. Convertmind notices these types of speed issues quickly.
When a landing page is loading slower, the time to interact decreases or visual stability is getting worse, Convertmind will send you an alert.
Web Vitals monitoring helps you understand what your users are really experiencing on your website.
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is an important, user-centric metric for measuring perceived load speed. It marks the point in the page load timeline when the page’s main content has likely loaded. A fast LCP helps reassure the user that the page is useful.
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) is an important, user-centric metric for measuring visual stability because it helps quantify how often users experience unexpected layout shifts. A low CLS helps ensure that the page is delightful.
Total Blocking Time (TBT) is an important metric for measuring load responsiveness because it helps quantify the severity of how non-interactive a page is prior to it becoming reliably interactive—a low TBT helps ensure that the page is usable.
The Performance score is a weighted average of all metric scores in the Web Vitals report. It is the overall metric to quickly see how your site speed is performing.
For all existing sites in your account – or when you add a new site – we track by default the top 10 most visited landing pages, based on your Google Analytics data.
You can change the tracked pages via the settings tab, click on monitoring and find Web Vital Pages.
You can track up to 10 pages; so if you’d like to track a new page, you have to delete one and click add a new page. Fill in the desired URL (domain + page) and hit save page.
When the overall performance score decrease by more than 10 points for two days in a row you’ll get an e-mail alert. We’ve built in the 2-day check so the drop in performance is not a fluke.
Convertmind checks your Web Vitals metrics for desktop and mobile separately. You can view the results for desktop and mobile by toggling between these two options in the ‘monitoring‘ and Web Vitals overview.
