Page experience ranking signal | Launches May 2021
Google just announced on Twitter (below) that its page experience ranking signals will launch in May 2021.
This will combine Core Web Vitals, "which include:
• Largest Contentful Paint (LCP): measures the time it takes for the main content of a page to load
• First Input Delay (FID): measures the amount of time that passes between the initial user interaction with the loaded page and the browser response
• Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS): measures the visual stability of a page when interacting" *H/T SearchMetrics email
This will be added to "existing search signals including mobile-friendliness, safe-browsing, HTTPS-security, and intrusive interstitial guidelines." -- Google
What is the New Google Page Experience Signal?
"The page experience signal measures aspects of how users perceive the experience of interacting with a web page. Optimizing for these factors makes the web more delightful for users across all web browsers and surfaces, and helps sites evolve towards user expectations on mobile. We believe this will contribute to business success on the web as users grow more engaged and can transact with less friction." Google
