Google is rapidly expanding the capabilities of Search Console — its must-have tool for site owners/managers. We’ve seen a lot of cool structured data reports appear. In this post, we’re examining an enhancement report dedicated to site speed. It’s important to have a fast site with a good user experience and Google’s new tool helps you monitor it and improve it. Here’s is a quick guide to its capabilities.

The Core Web Vitals report gives you an idea of how fast or slow your pages load over any given time. It gives you insights that were almost impossible to get up until now. Running page speed analysis on your complete site is not something the average user can do. Testing a couple of pages in PageSpeed Insights, fine, but 1,000 pages? The new Core Web Vitals report in Google Search Console gives you an idea of how your site loads. It puts all pages in buckets conveniently labeled poor, in need of improvement and good.
