    Google Lighthouse v6 and PageSpeed Insights v6 have been released with updated metrics outlined at WebPerf - PageSpeed - How to use webpagetest.org for page load speed testing. This is the first month after release of the new metrics so will track how this forum's main domain real world user page speed fairs via Google Chrome User Experience Reports (CRuX) data.

    Bear in mind this is real world users so if more slow visitors visit the forums and domain, then my averages would be lower even if I have improved my pagespeed optimisations. For example, if a visitor is watching a video on his PC, that can slow web browser render/load times dramatically - my test showed page render time for LCP jumped from 1-2 seconds to 19+ seconds WebPerf - PageSpeed - How to use webpagetest.org for page load speed testing !

    First my Google Core Web Vital metrics for April 2020

    cmm-forum-april-2020.png

    Then my Google Core Web Vital metrics for May 2020

    cmm-forum-may-2020.png

    Then historic metrics for past ~9 months as you can see some metrics are now slower - probably due to my increased visitor traffic from slow countries in Asia i.e. India, China and from South America, Brazil which would bring down my averages + changes in how many Google Adsense ads I have no on some pages being more than in the past.

    You can get these reports from Google CRuX dashboard reports via Google Data Studio http://g.co/chromeuxdash

    My Google Datastudio's custom Google Analytics sourced data dashboards tracking page speed for top visitor countries. As you can see China, India, Indonesia, Brazil and even a spike from Germany have pulled down my pagespeed averages compared to USA !

    Overall for Jan 1 to Jun 10, 2020

    Not satisfied with default Google CRuX Reports, I created my own via Google Data Studio with combined Google Analytics + Google CRuX data sources - an insight into my year to date CRuX LCP, FCP, TTB, FID metrics as well as month to date GA metrics :)

    Finally got both mobile and desktop page speed metrics optimised into the 'good URLs' category for Google Webmaster Console's Speed Report for real world LCP and FID metrics :D

    Google Core Web Vital metrics can be exposed in Google Chrome User Experience (CRuX) report for real world visitors metrics. Previously posted my April vs May 2020 Core Web Vital metric numbers here. CRuX is updated monthly every 2nd Tuesday of the month. So here's June 2020 metrics

    First my custom Google DataStudio Core Web Vital dashboard with June 2020 metrics added for select metrics which averages both mobile + desktop.

    It focuses on LCP, FCP, TTFB and FID broken down by monthly basis. I see a dramatic improvement since I started re-optimizing my forums for FCP and thus LCP and improving my caching for better TTFB. To optimize for LCP, you need to optimize for FCP which also needs fast TTFB ;)
    • April Good LCP = 74.83% vs May Good LCP = 78.42% vs June Good LCP = 88.72% which is 13.13% improvement over previous May
    • April Good FCP = 57.53% vs May Good FCP = 56.3% vs June Good FCP = 71.55% which is 27.09% improvement over previous May
    • April Good TTFB = 32.52% vs May Good TTFB = 30.32% vs June Good TTFB = 49.79% which is 64.2% improvement over previous May. I believe the TTFB improvement came from re-enabling Cloudflare Argo which improves one aspect of pagespeed = server connection response time.
    datastudio-crux-june2020-01.png

    Cloudflare Argo Analytics with past 48hrs showing ~86.7% of CF requests being Argo smart routed with an average 63.31% improvement in Cloudflare edge server response time from 447ms to 164ms across all 200+ Cloudflare datacenters.

    cloudflare-argo-01.png

    Cloudflare Argo Analytics via Cloudflare API with custom script I wrote to breakdown Argo performance on a per Cloudflare datacenter basis.

    Example largest Argo improvement (max) came from MCI datacenter (IATA airport code for Kansas City International Airport) with 71.83% improvement using CF Argo reducing average CF edge server response time 389ms to 109ms. Least Argo improvement (min) came from LAX datacenter (IATA airport code for Los Angeles International Airport) with 16.82% Argo improvement - reducing average CF edge server response time from 69ms to 57ms. LAX was a small improvement as my origin server is in US West Coast so already close to that regions users.
