/home/search pages render fine, but
/home/product/ID_XYZ pages appear as just a loading icon when doing a "Live Test" in Google Search Console.
There has been some flux recently in the URL of product pages. I thought this may be related and found the sitemap was broken. I fixed this but rendering issues persist. In GSC the new sitemap URLs are "Excluded" with errors: "Crawled - currently not indexed" and "Duplicate, submitted URL not selected as canonical" (but the duplicate URL is completely unrelated, like
When testing in Google Lighthouse I see the following latency metrics:
FCP: 0.7s - Speed Index 2.5s - LCP 3.6s - Time to Interactive 5.1s - Total blocking time 1.02 s - Cumulative Layout Shift 0.254
FCP: 0.7s - Speed Index 4.5s - LCP 5.2s - Time to Interactive 6.1s - Total blocking time 1.32 s - Cumulative Layout Shift 0.008
Obviously this would be fixed with SSR or prerendering, but I am trying to find faster/easier solutions first. Would this be purely a latency issue? I cannot find data on how long Google waits for a page to render, and I hoped fixing the sitemap would give it another signal that the link is valid and it should wait longer, but that didn't work. Is there anything I can do besides strictly targeting latency improvements? What would be a realistic target to hit?
