More About Largest Contentful Paint

LCP is one of the three Google Core Web Vitals metrics that measure how performance impacts the user experience. This metric calculates how long it takes to load the largest visual element on any given page.

By their nature, LCP scores are always higher than their First Contentful Paint (FCP) counterparts. However, if your website offers great performance, the difference between FCP and LCP scores should be relatively minor. In practice, that means pages on your website don’t take too long to load from the first to the last element.

Performance can have a significant impact on your website’s user experience. Moreover, Core Web Vital metrics are one of the signals that Google considers when ranking sites.
