Google roll out page speed checker in search console in early week of November 2019. As of now there is not cumulative data for page speed in GA or search console, so Google has decided to add this feature in Google search console.
I am sharing an easy guide to check your page speed in google search console.
Where will you Get this report in Search Console?
Once you will login yours google search console tool, you can see this report in left hand side panel in Enhancement section as per below screen.
Once you will click on this Speed link you will see below screen
You can as per screenshot that three types of URL have given-
- Slow URLs (RED)
- Moderate URLs (YELLOW)
- Fast URL (GREEN)
Now if you will click on open report for Mobile then you will see below screen
Blow are the meaning of this report-
Slow URL – FCP Issue – Longer than 3s (Mobile) – Once we will click on this text we will see below report in search console.
- FCP (first contentful paint): The time from when the user requests the URL until the browser renders the first visible element in the URL. This is important because it tells the reader that the URL is actually loading.
- Agg FCP (aggregated FCP) shown in the report is the time it takes for 75% of the visits to a URL in the group to reach the FCP state.
- FID (first input delay): The time from when a user first interacts with your page (when they clicked a link, tapped on a button, and so on) to the time when the browser responds to that interaction. This measurement is taken from whatever interactive element that the user first clicks. This is important on pages where the user needs to do something, because this is when the page has become interactive.
- Agg FID (aggregated FID) shown in the report is the lowest common FID for 95% of the visits to a URL in the group.
