What does Page Experience Report Show?

As mentioned above the new report will look at a combination of mobile experience metrics including Core Web Vitals, Mobile Usability, Site Security, HTTPS coverage and Ad Experience.

Core Web Vitals

Core Web Vitals tests the speed, stability and interactivity of the page loading experience for users. To be classed as 'Good' a URL must pass each of the Core Web Vitals:

There is a few days' lag in importing data from the Core Web Vitals report into the Page Experience report, and so the rating for a URL in the Page Experience report can lag slightly behind the URL's rating Core Web Vitals report.

You can check if your URLs pass Core Web Vitals with our speed check tool.

Mobile Usability

A URL must have no mobile usability issues in order to be classed as 'Good'.

Site Security

A site must have no security issues otherwise all URLs will be disqualified from the report.

HTTPS

A URL must be served using HTTPS protocol in order to be eligible for the 'Good' status.

Ad Experience

The Ad Experience evaluation is another (like site security) factor which effects the entire website rather than a single URL.

If a site is flagged as having a bad ad experience (distracting, interrupting, or result in bad user experience), all pages on the site are excluded from the 'Good' page experience status.

The Page Experience report will measure the percentage of URLs on a website that offer a good experience based on an evaluation of these factors.

Page Experience Signals

Below the Page Experience chart you can dig into each of the signals to gain additional insights into opportunities for improvements.

Clicking on each 'card' will take you to a specific report for that signal.

Search Performance Report Update

Google is also updating to the existing Search Performance report to allow you to filter pages with good page experience and compare to other pages on your site. This should “help you keep track of how these pages compare to other pages on the same site,” Google said.
