We all know by now that a fast site is good for users, it’s just expected these days, but soon it will play a bigger part in how much organic traffic your site will generate. Google’s Core Web Vitals are going to be included as ranking factors in a future algorithm update which is going to shift rankings for some sites. We don’t know how much yet, but from what we understand it’s not going to be more important than relevancy and will likely be more of a tie breaker between competing sites or pages in the results. You can read more about the importance of Core Web Vitals.
- Go to the Sources tab
- Run a Command by Pressing Control + Shift + P
- Type in “Coverage” and select “Show Coverage” in the search suggestions
- In the new window, click on the reload button
Now you will see all the scripts that are loaded on the page, their utilization, and the percentage of the script that’s unused.
If you click on that item in the list, it will show the lines of code in the window above with red highlights next to each line that’s unused.
If this were your site, you may want to inspect that code carefully to determine if you really need it. Be aware that there may be interactions that could later require this code, so be careful and be sure to test on your staging server before deploying to your production site.
