1. Website Performance

Website Performance is how quick your webpage load. Google's Algorithm is very aggressive to check how fast a user gets a response from your webpage.

To measure Website Performance Google checks 6 things. That are listed below.

a. First Contentful Paint (FCP) - Google checks how long it takes the browser to render the first piece of DOM content after a user navigates to your page.

b. Speed Index - This section checks how quickly content is visually displayed during page load.

c. Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) - This checks the page load timeline when the page's main content has likely loaded. If the complete page load fast then Google think that this page would be useful for the user.

d. Time to Interactive (TTI) - Google checks how a page becomes interactive for the user. As soon as the page will become interactive or accessible for the user, Google algorithms will think that users are not getting frustrated, so Google will try to put this page on the Top Google search results.

e. Total Blocking Time (TBT) - Google checks the total amount of time that a page is blocked from responding to user input, such as mouse clicks, screen taps, or keyboard presses. As much as the TBT will be low, it helps to improve the rank in search results.

f. Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) - Google measures the largest burst of layout shift scores for every unexpected layout shift that occurs during the entire lifespan of a page. As much as the layout shift is minimal is good.

2. Website Accessibility

All content of your website should be too easily accessible to users. All users should be able to access your content. You have to learn how to provide a robust experience to your users that accounts for their context and any situational, temporary, or permanent disabilities.

3. SEO

You should know one thing always that Content is the King.
If your content is not good then website performance, accessibility, and SEO will not work for you. You or your employee should be passionate about that particular category in which you are writing blog articles or news.

5. Social Media

Google also checks how users are liking your blog post and sharing with each other. If an article gets visits from social media then Google's algorithms find that article very useful for other users too. Hence Google will always try to put your article on top of others.
