Google Core Web Vitals No Longer Impacted By Noindexed Pages


In 2021, Google said that Core Web Vitals may also be graded based on pages on your site that are noindexed. Well, that is no longer the case according to an updated Google help document. A page that has noindex on it will no longer be factored into your Core Web Vitals and Google Page Experience scores.

The document now says “Any page will not meet the discoverability requirement if any of the following conditions are met, including root pages for the origin dataset: The page is served with an HTTP X-Robots-Tag: noindex header or equivalent. The document includes a meta name=”robots” content=”noindex” meta tag or equivalent.”

This was spotted by Mike Blazer on Twitter:

So should you noindex slow pages? Probably not, instead make them faster. But there is no need to panic about the core web vitals score on noindexed pages and in general, I wouldn’t panic about core web vitals in general but that is me.

Brodie noted this caveat:

Google Popular Destinations Overlays Google Travel Details

Google seems to be testing overlaying on top of the web search results the popular destinations feature and details you’d normally get in Google Travel. Previously, Google would show you a snippet and when you clicked in for more, it would take you to Google Travel.

Khushal Bherwani shared a video of this on Twitter of Google testing an overlay, I currently still do not see the overlay but rather am taken into Google Travel’s site. Here is his tweet:

Google has been testing overlays a lot in web search on mobile. I guess Google rather keep people in search over those verticals?
