Google has gradually been taking over the subject of user experience measurement: after creating Lighthouse to replace especially Page Insights, it is imposing its Core Web Vitals reference metrics which, in 2021, will become SEO ranking factors.
The metrics supplied by Lighthouse correspond to the ‘lab’ view provided by Page Speed Insights (https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/).
They are calculated from this site or directly in Chrome’s DevTools:
Because all of these indicators depend on the context: how powerful a user’s PC is, where they are located, network connectivity, etc. Optimization starts with measurement, so measurements have to be reliable.
The Core Web Vitals are metrics that are very dependent on a number of things, so you need to follow how they change over time, especially at times of heavy traffic. We guarantee a stable measurement reference: any variations that may be observed come from your infrastructures or the state of the network between your users and you.
With Ekara we enable you to monitor these measurements 24 hours a day to detect and analyze variations. Monitoring your home page is obviously necessary, but what experience to your other pages offer, particularly the ones that require users to connect?
Ekara lets you create your user journeys so that you can monitor Core Web Vitals at every step, especially the most critical ones. You can also compare these ‘lab’ results (60 locations and operators) with ‘field’ results showing what happens in real life with your actual users, using Real User Monitoring (RUM).
