Brief about Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)

Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) is a crucial, reliable Core Web Vital statistic for assessing actual load speed since it indicates when the page’s primary content has most likely loaded. A fast LCP encourages users to trust the page’s usefulness.

It has always been difficult for web developers to evaluate how soon a web page’s primary content loads and becomes accessible to users.

What is LCP?

While compared to when the page originally began loading, the Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) metric shows the render time of the largest picture or text block visible within the viewport.

What is a good score for LCP?

Sites should try to have an LCP of 2.5 seconds or less in order to deliver a decent user experience. The 75th percentile of page loads, divided across mobile and desktop platforms, is an excellent benchmark to measure in order to make sure you’re hitting this goal for the majority of your consumers.

How to measure LCP

LCP can be measured using the online tools like:

  • Chrome User Experience Report
  • PageSpeed Insights
  • Search Console (Core Web Vitals report)
  • web-vitals JavaScript library
  • Chrome DevTools
  • Lighthouse
  • PageSpeed Insights
