How fast should my pages be
to keep my visitors happy?
How can I make sure they stay
fast?
2009 Improved average load time from 6s  1.2s
7-12% increase in conversion rate + 25% increase in PVs
Average load time degraded to 5s
User feedback: “I will not come back to this site again.”
Re-focused on performance
0.4% increase in conversion rate
2010
2011
2009
@tameverts
1. Constant feature development
2. Badly implemented third-parties
3. Waited too long to tackle problems
4. Relied on performance sprints
5. Stopped doing front-end performance measurement
6. No way to track regressions
@tameverts
What is a performance budget?
Which metrics should I focus on?
What should my budget thresholds be?
How can I stay on top of my budgets?
@tameverts
Minimum Viable Budget
What is a performance
budget?
Thresholds YOU create for metrics
that are meaningful for YOUR site
Milestone timings • e.g. Start Render, Largest Contentful Paint
Quantity-based • e.g. Page size, image weight, Long Tasks
Score-based • e.g. Cumulative Layout Shift, Lighthouse scores
@tameverts
A good performance
budget
should show you…
 What your budget is
 When you go out of bounds
 How long you’re out of bounds
 When you’re back within budget
@tameverts
budget
exceeded fixed
@tameverts
Performance budget tools
Synthetic (lab)
Mimics defined network & browser conditions
No installation required
Limited URLs
Limited test locations
Compare any sites
Detailed analysis & visuals
Real user monitoring (field)
Real network & browser conditions
Requires JavaScript installation
Large sample size (up to 100%)
Geographic spread
Only measure your own site
Correlation with other metrics (e.g., bounce rate)
@tameverts
Which metrics
should I focus on?
TTFB DNS FCP FMP
LCP CLS FID TBT
TTI INP OMG WTF
50+ synthetic metrics
25 additional metrics for EACH third party
30+ RUM metrics
??? custom metrics

Is the page loading?
Can I use it?
How does it feel?
❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box
❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM
❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics
❑ Has broad browser support
The ideal UX metric…
@tameverts
Is the page loading?
Backend time
AKA Time to First Byte (TTFB)
Synthetic & RUM
❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box
❑ Has broad browser support
❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM
❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics
√
√
√
Backend time
√
Start Render
The time from the start of navigation
until the first non-white content is painted
Synthetic & RUM
As Start Render improves, so does bounce rate (typically)
@tameverts
So does conversion rate (again, typically)
@tameverts
❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box
❑ Has broad browser support
❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM
❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics
√

√
Start Render
√

@tameverts
Can I use the page?
41
When do users start interacting with a page?
@tameverts
Largest Contentful Paint (LCP)
Amount of time it takes for the largest visual element
(image or video) to render
Synthetic & RUM
45
LCP can be tricky on mobile
46
LCP can vary for first-view vs repeat visitors
speedcurve.com/blog/element-timing-one-true-metric
47
Largest LCP element can vary by viewport size
speedcurve.com/blog/element-timing-one-true-metric
Largest Contentful Paint (often) correlates to bounce rate
@tameverts
❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box

❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics
√

Largest Contentful Paint
√
√
@tameverts
@tameverts
How does the page
feel?
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS)
Aggregate score that reflects
how much page elements shift
during rendering
Synthetic & RUM
Bounce rate gets worse as CLS degrades
Bounce rate improves as CLS degrades
Bounce rate stays the same as CLS degrades
speedcurve.com/blog/google-cumulative-layout-shift/
❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box
❑ Has broad browser support
❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM

√
√
Cumulative Layout Shift
@tameverts
√
First Input Delay (FID)
Amount of time it takes for the page
to respond to user input
(e.g., click, tap, key)
RUM
No correlation when looking at all sessions
speedcurve.com/blog/first-input-delay-google-core-web-vitals/
@tameverts
Stronger correlation at 75th percentile

❑ Tracks the most important content
❑ Is accessible out of the box
❑ Has broad browser support
❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM
❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics
√
First Input Delay
@tameverts
Long Tasks
Any JavaScript function that takes >50ms to execute
Long tasks don’t always block page rendering,
but they can cause page jank
Synthetic & RUM
61
speedcurve.com/blog/first-input-delay-google-core-web-vitals/
Long Tasks (more often than FID) correlate to conversions
@tameverts
63
Long Tasks can reveal issues with third parties
@tameverts
Interaction to Next Paint (INP)
Measures a page's responsiveness
to individual user interactions
Observes latency and reports a single value which all
(or nearly all) interactions were below
RUM
Impact of INP on business and UX
Element Timing
Measures when specified DOM elements are rendered (and
works in SPAs)
You decide which element(s) you want to measure
RUM & Synthetic

What should
my budget thresholds be?
performance
budgets
performance goals
Goals are aspirational
How fast do I want to be eventually?
Budgets are pragmatic
How can I keep my site from getting slower
while I work toward my goals?
@tameverts
Priority 1
Create budgets
to fight regression
75
Find the worst result in your last 2-4 weeks of data
@tameverts
76
Make that number your performance budget
@tameverts
As you optimize your pages (and
hopefully get faster!) update
your budgets
Priority 2
Set long-term goals
79
How fast are my competitors?
speedcurve.com/benchmarks/
@tameverts
@tameverts
How can I improve business metrics?
@tameverts
@tameverts
How do I manage
my budgets?
Should I set up budgets
in RUM, synthetic, or both?
Scenario 1
Create budgets in RUM,
and drill down via
synthetic
@tameverts
Scenario 2
Create budgets in
synthetic,
and integrate with CI/CD
@tameverts
Should I create
performance budgets
for every metric I track?
Do I need performance budgets
for all my pages?
1. Product
2. Category
3. Home
4. Cart
5. Search
@tameverts
Who should be responsible
for managing budgets?
Everyone* who touches a page
should understand the performance
impact of their choices
*Yes, this includes marketing people
“One of the original directives
of the performance team
was we weren’t going
to set ourselves up
to be performance cops.”
Dan Chilton, Vox Media
responsivewebdesign.com/podcast/vox-media-performance/
Our goals
• Set up best practices
• Make recommendations
• Be a resource within the company
that people can turn to when they
have to make performance-related decisions
Dan Chilton, Vox Media
responsivewebdesign.com/podcast/vox-media-performance/
1. Start small (even a single metric will do!)
2. Visually validate your metrics (filmstrips, videos)
3. Validate your metrics some more (UX, business)
4. Get buy-in from different stakeholders
5. Focus on the pages that matter most
6. Revisit your budgets regularly (2-4 weeks)
7. Remember that metrics are always evolving
8. Never stop measuring
Thanks!

  • 6. How fast should my pages be to keep my visitors happy? How can I make sure they stay fast?
  • 7.
  • 8. 2009 Improved average load time from 6s  1.2s 7-12% increase in conversion rate + 25% increase in PVs Average load time degraded to 5s User feedback: “I will not come back to this site again.” Re-focused on performance 0.4% increase in conversion rate 2010 2011 2009 @tameverts
  • 9. 1. Constant feature development 2. Badly implemented third-parties 3. Waited too long to tackle problems 4. Relied on performance sprints 5. Stopped doing front-end performance measurement 6. No way to track regressions @tameverts
  • 10.
  • 11. What is a performance budget? Which metrics should I focus on? What should my budget thresholds be? How can I stay on top of my budgets? @tameverts
  • 12.
  • 13.
  • 15. What is a performance budget?
  • 16. Thresholds YOU create for metrics that are meaningful for YOUR site Milestone timings • e.g. Start Render, Largest Contentful Paint Quantity-based • e.g. Page size, image weight, Long Tasks Score-based • e.g. Cumulative Layout Shift, Lighthouse scores @tameverts
  • 17. A good performance budget should show you…  What your budget is  When you go out of bounds  How long you’re out of bounds  When you’re back within budget @tameverts
  • 19. Performance budget tools Synthetic (lab) Mimics defined network & browser conditions No installation required Limited URLs Limited test locations Compare any sites Detailed analysis & visuals Real user monitoring (field) Real network & browser conditions Requires JavaScript installation Large sample size (up to 100%) Geographic spread Only measure your own site Correlation with other metrics (e.g., bounce rate) @tameverts

  • 27. Is the page loading? Can I use it? How does it feel?
  • 28. ❑ Tracks the most important content ❑ Is accessible out of the box ❑ Is available in synthetic and RUM ❑ Can be correlated to UX and business metrics ❑ Has broad browser support The ideal UX metric… @tameverts

  • 36.
  • 37. As Start Render improves, so does bounce rate (typically) @tameverts
  • 38. So does conversion rate (again, typically) @tameverts

  • 43.
  • 44.
  • 45. 45 LCP can be tricky on mobile
  • 46. 46 LCP can vary for first-view vs repeat visitors speedcurve.com/blog/element-timing-one-true-metric
  • 47. 47 Largest LCP element can vary by viewport size speedcurve.com/blog/element-timing-one-true-metric
  • 48. Largest Contentful Paint (often) correlates to bounce rate @tameverts

  • 53.
  • 54. Bounce rate gets worse as CLS degrades Bounce rate improves as CLS degrades Bounce rate stays the same as CLS degrades speedcurve.com/blog/google-cumulative-layout-shift/

  • 56. First Input Delay (FID) Amount of time it takes for the page to respond to user input (e.g., click, tap, key) RUM
  • 57. No correlation when looking at all sessions speedcurve.com/blog/first-input-delay-google-core-web-vitals/ @tameverts

  • 61. 61
  • 62. speedcurve.com/blog/first-input-delay-google-core-web-vitals/ Long Tasks (more often than FID) correlate to conversions @tameverts
  • 63. 63 Long Tasks can reveal issues with third parties @tameverts
  • 64. Interaction to Next Paint (INP) Measures a page's responsiveness to individual user interactions Observes latency and reports a single value which all (or nearly all) interactions were below RUM
