Hello @theannettemarie 

Experiencing a Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) error can be frustrating, but there are several common steps you can take to address it and improve your website's performance. Here are some general guidelines to help you get started

  • Optimize Images and Videos: Large images or videos are often the main culprits behind LCP issues. Ensure that you've compressed your images and videos to reduce their file sizes without compromising too much on quality. Use modern image formats like WebP for better compression.
  • Lazy Loading: Implement lazy loading for images and other non-essential assets. This delays the loading of below-the-fold content until the user scrolls to it, which can significantly improve LCP.
  • Minimize JavaScript: Excessive or poorly optimized JavaScript can slow down your website. Minimize and defer non-essential JavaScript, especially if it's render-blocking. Use code-splitting techniques and prioritize critical scripts.
  • Optimize Fonts: Font loading can also contribute to LCP issues. Consider using font-display: swap; in your CSS to ensure that text is visible even if the custom fonts are still loading.
  • Reduce Server Response Time: If your server takes too long to respond, it can impact LCP. Optimize your server infrastructure, use caching, and consider upgrading your hosting plan if necessary.
  • Eliminate Render-Blocking Resources: Make sure your critical resources (CSS and JavaScript) are not render-blocking. Use async and defer attributes for script tags and inline critical CSS to improve initial load times.
  • Leverage Browser Caching: Configure your server to set appropriate caching headers for static assets. This will reduce the need for repeated downloads on subsequent visits.
  • Mobile Optimization: Ensure that your website is fully responsive and optimized for mobile devices. Mobile performance is crucial for LCP.
  • Use Performance Tools: Continuously monitor your website's performance using tools like Google PageSpeed Insights, Lighthouse, or GTmetrix. These tools can provide specific recommendations tailored to your site.
  • Test on Different Devices and Connections: Test your website's performance on various devices and network connections to ensure a good user experience for all visitors.
    • Content Delivery Optimization: Consider optimizing your content strategy by prioritizing above-the-fold content to improve perceived performance.
      Keep in mind that the specific solution for your website may vary depending on its design and architecture.

Hello Theannettemarie,

 

Thanks for reaching out!

 

Well, no one can deny that a slow-loading website is frustrating and hampers the user experience, which makes it highly important for a website owner to identify issues, like LCP, to resolve these issues for the long-term success of the website.

 

LCP above 2.5 seconds needs improvement, while LCP above 4 seconds is poor and gives errors. So, here are some suggestions for you:

 

  • Optimize the images: Images can be optimized by compressing their file size, without hampering their visual quality, which can reduce their loading time.
  • Implement AMP: Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is an open-source HTML framework, whose implementation allows Google to store the cached version of these pages on the server, which reduces their loading time on the mobile device.
  • Remove Unused or Unnecessary CSS and Javascript: You may not realize, but your website may have ample unused and unnecessary CSS and JavaScript, like the residues of uninstalled apps. This might affect the speed of the website; thus, make use of cleaning apps and tools to identify and remove these scripts.
  • Implement Lazy Loading for Advertisement: Lazy loading is a technique that focuses on identifying certain parts of the website and increasing their waiting time to load so that other crucial parts of the website get loaded quickly. Thus, lazy loading for the advertisement can help the main contents of the website load fast.
  • Minify Javascript: You can use the GZIP file format for textual compression of JavaScript to reduce its loading time.
  • Compress Font: Compress the file size of the font on the website and remove unnecessary glyphs from the font, which can reduce its loading time.
  • Reduce Server Response Time: Make sure that you are using a proper hosting service for the website and optimize the database to enhance the server’s response. Also, ensure to eliminate ‘Error 404’, for which you can closely assess the website, identify the broken links and fix them. Furthermore, keep everything updated to optimize the functioning of the website.
  • Browser Caching: Enable browser caching for your website that involves temporary storage of the website on the browser; thus, reducing the loading time of that website.
  • Mobile-responsiveness: It is important that you ensure that your website is mobile-friendly and responsive to mobile browsers, as the website must be mobile-responsive to load quickly on mobile devices.
  • Use PageSpeed Insights: Finally, I would recommend you to use PageSpeed Insights, which is a free tool by Google that lets you check and track the speed of your website on desktop and mobile devices. Additionally, with this tool you can identify various opportunities to improve the speed of your website.

Hope it helps!

I am having the same issue, and I feel like no one even read your question. For whatever reason, Google cannot find the image or item that is the Largest Contentful Paint, so it is erroring out. Something in our code isn't indicating the LCP properly. If you find the solution, please let me know!
