Featuring:
Billy Hoffman — Sr. Principal Engineer, Splunk

Monitoring Core Web Vitals is, well, vital to ensuring users have a great experience when visiting your website, and are essential to driving traffic to your website. They are the most modern way to quantify the performance and user experience of a web property. Not only are Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) important when optimizing your site, in summer of 2021 Google began using these three metrics as a factor in a site’s search rankings.

The importance of incorporating Web Vitals into your Observability practice is larger than ever. With Splunk Synthetic Monitoring you can proactively run tests to measure the performance of Google Web Vitals on your company’s website and alert you on any issue. And if your website needs improvement, our Web Optimization feature will run through hundreds of best practices, providing you with actionable insights to improve your user experience.

Join Splunk’s Billy Hoffman for a deep dive into Core Web Vitals and see why incorporating these user-centric metrics into your deployments can create great user experiences and improve your business.

In this webinar you will learn:

- What Core Web Vitals are, how they’re measured, and why they’re important to both the business and your Google ranking.
- What aspects of a web site, such as JavaScript size or critical rendering path, impact each metric.
- How to measure Google Web Vitals on your website.
- Which Performance optimizations should be adopted to improve specific Web Vitals.
