Article summary:

In early 2020, Google's Chrome Team introduced the Core Web Vitals to provide a suite of quality signals for web pages. Today, the Google Chrome team announced an upcoming change in the metrics for the Core Web Vitals to better evaluate the quality of a webpage's user experience. In this article, we'll explore this change and what it means for Google Search and site owners. After another year of testing and gathering feedback from the community, the Chrome team decided to promote INP as the new Core Web Vitals metric for responsiveness, effective March 2024, replacing FID. The Chrome team's blog post explains this change and the reasoning behind the new metric in more detail. To help site owners and developers to take the necessary steps and evaluate their pages for the new metric, Search Console will include INP in the Core Web Vitals report later this year. We highly recommend site owners achieve good Core Web Vitals for success with Search and to ensure a great user experience generally.
