Page Experience will serve as a ranking factor for desktop pages as well

Algorithm rollout is expected to start in February 2022 and is expected to end a month later, in March. 

Desktop pages will be tested with the same three Core Web Vitals metrics: 

  • LCP; 
  • CLS; 
  • FID.

Additionally, other aspects of page interaction signals, such as HTTPS availability and lack of intrusive cross-page ads, will remain important.

The desktop usability signal is based on the URLs that users see, so it won't be the deciding factor.
