Google Page Experience guide: Signal and SEO
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP):
The Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) metric reports the render time of the largest image or text block visible within the viewport, relative to when the page first started loading. Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is a Core Web Vitals metric and measures when the largest content element in the viewport becomes visible. It can be used to determine when the main content of the page has finished rendering on the screen. The most common causes of a poor LCP are Slow server response times.
First Input Delay (FID)
measures interactivity. To provide a good user experience, pages should have an FID of 100 milliseconds or less. The first impression users have of how fast your site loads can be measured with First Contentful Paint (FCP). But how fast your site can paint pixels to the screen is just part of the story. Equally important is how responsive your site is when users try to interact with those pixels!
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
measures visual stability. To provide a good user experience, pages should maintain a CLS of 0.1. or less.
CLS is a measure of the largest burst of layout shift scores for every unexpected layout shift that occurs during the entire lifespan of a page. A layout shift occurs any time a visible element changes its position from one rendered frame to the next. (See below for details on how individual layout shift scores are calculated.) A burst of layout shifts, known as a session window, is when one or more individual layout shifts occur in rapid succession with less than 1-second in between each shift and a maximum of 5 seconds for the total window duration.

Optimizing for the Google Core Web Vitals Update
Google has been promoting the main Google Page Experience web tool to do some basic analytics about your page to find out if there are any issues that could be blocking the users of your site from getting into it. And if there are problems, then the Page Knowledge’s Update from Google also provides the direction on how to improve the Page Experience and improve your Page’s ranking on the Page Knowledge section. But there is a lot of points on how to do the improvement so I will recommend you the upgrade to the latest version.
