Testing Your Website For Web Core Vitals

A new version of the popular website testing tools GTMetrix has added Google’s Web Core Vitals to their test results.
This makes it so much simpler to test your website with the often confused new Web Core Vitals terminology.

There has been one change that Google has made since my last video:

FID (First Input Delay) is now replaced by Total Blocking Time.

Total Blocking Time (TBT) is an important lab metric for measuring load responsiveness because it helps quantify the severity of how non-interactive a page is prior to it becoming reliably interactive—a low TBT helps ensure that the page is usable. [web.dev]

This is just a overview of the new GTmetrix test site.
There are two parts to this video:
1) Test loading time of original website and retest after rebuilt.
2) Using the new GTmetrix version to test Google Web Core Vitals.
