Page experience signal rolls out in May 2021
The page experience update was originally supposed to roll out in 2020 but Google pushed back the update due to the impact of Covid-19. In May last year, the search giant said the update would not happen before 2021 and promised to provide at least six months’ notice before rolling out the new signal.
True to its word, Google announced in November that the page experience update would roll out in May 2021.
