Experiencing Google Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) Issues?
You'll find any CLS issues in the Core Web Vitals tab in Google Search Console
Hmm... that's not looking too good
We're going to need to run a Lighthouse Audit in Chrome Stable to investigate further

Lets get those CLS issues fixed and ready for 2021
Web Story Summary:
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) is a Core Web Vital which will become a ranking input starting in 2021. Use the 'Core Web Vitals' report in Google Search Console to see how pages on your site are performing. Perform testing in Chrome DevTools (now available in Lighthouse with Chrome Stable ) to locate elements that trigger a shift.
