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

Now lets see which elements are causing layout shifts

Using DevTools, we can also see highlighted elements on the page that are shifting

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.
