Site statistics: available metrics
WP.one uses the metrics below to indicate the quality of your site. By keeping track of these metrics and continuously improving your scores, you can improve your website's user experience and rank higher in Google and other search engines.
The performance metric analyzes how quickly your website loads and how quickly users can access or view your content. This overall performance score is based on the combined metrics First Contentful Paint (FCP), Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), Blocking time, Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) and Speed index. The performance score is shown as a percentage. The higher this percentage, the better your website's performance.
The accessibility metric defines how well your website can be used by people with a visual or cognitive disability. Button texts, link texts and alt texts are important for a good accessibility score. Your accessibility score is shown as a percentage. The higher this percentage, the better your website's accessibility.
Your SEO score indicates how well your website can be crawled by search engines such as Google, and how well your site ranks in search engines. This score is based on technical SEO elements. For example: the mobile-friendliness of your site, the presence of meta descriptions, and the presence of descriptive texts when sharing links on your website. The higher your score, the better.
Progressive Web Apps (PWA)
This metric examines the quality and user experience of your web applications. Speed, offline functionality, push notifications and stability are some important factors to determine your score. The higher your score, the better your web applications' quality.
First Contentful Paint (FCP)
This metric indicates the time before the first text or image becomes visible to users. Your FCP score is displayed in milliseconds. A low FCP time is positive for your users' experience while visiting your site.
The speed index can be seen as a uniform metric to express how quickly the visible content of a page is loaded. Any elements loading in the background are not part of the speed index. This makes the speed index a user-centric metric. Just as FCP, the speed index is displayed in milliseconds. A low speed index means that the visible content on your website loads fast, which is good for the user experience.
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)
The largest contentful paint metric tells you how long it takes to render the largest content element to the screen. This metric only applies to the 'viewport'. This means that only content that is visible without scrolling down is involved. The LCP is displayed in milliseconds and is a key part of the user experience.
This metric indicates the time before the user is able to interact with the page and its content fully. In other words, the content is not only visible, but as a user, you can also interact with it by clicking buttons, entering text in text fields, et cetera. The interactive time is measured in milliseconds.
This metric measures the amount of time spent executing long tasks that prevent the user from interacting with the site. A long task is considered any task that takes more than 50 milliseconds. The lower the blocking time, the better the user experience.
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
The cumulative layout shift measures the unexpected shifting of web elements while the page is being rendered. For example: a pop-up window appears or images are slowly loading. The CLS score ranges from 0 to 1. The lower your score, the better.
Server statistics: available metrics
The disk usage says something about how much space your WordPress files take. Is your disk getting full? You can easily upgrade your disk space through the 'Upgrade disk' option.
The database size says something about how much space your WordPress database takes. Please note that if your database gets full, your site may become unavailable or extra charges could be applied to your account.
