Google plans to begin using Core Web Vitals as a search engine ranking factor in May 2021. Currently WordPress out of the box doesn’t appear to perform very well under these standards.

WordPress should focus some energy on making WordPress perform well under Core Web Vitals.

Hello @nasiralamreeki, welcome to WordPress Trac and thank you for opening this ticket,

The WordPress projet is constantly evolving to serve a better experience to end-users, and to follow the industry standards best practices. However, this ticket seems very, very, very general.
There is no specific actionable item in this request.

"Be compliant to Google criteria" is not an actionable item as is really depends on the theme and plugins you’re using on you website.

Maybe some criteria can be handled by core. Maybe others are clearly plugin/theme territory.
Do you have any specific actionable item to point out?

Adding close keyword for now, but happy to help this moving forward if relevant criteria are raised by commenters.

Thank yo,

I agree with JB that the ticket is very very general and lacks actionable details for what could be considered for inclusion in core. "Be compliant to Google criteria", as JB points out, is not actionable for Core.

There are plugins available for this area. For Core consideration:

  • What are the pain points for the plugins and themes to meet the criteria?
  • Are any of these pain points due to Core?

Without those details, it's difficult to assess how to move this ticket forward.

With no reporter follow-up, I'm closing this ticket.

@nasiralamreeki if you can scope out a proposal, please reopen this ticket.
