It’s finally “official” page speed IS a ranking factor for mobile.

Probably a good thing. since we have been preaching this for over 2 years.

Google will make page speed (officially) a factor in mobile search ranking starting in July, but we suspect this has long been the case.

This is not the first time that page speed has been used as a signal on Google, to be clear – that’s been the case for some time on desktop searches, the company notes. It’s just never been explicitly taken into consideration for those same searches on mobile.

These sorts of mobile-focused changes to Google search are critical for the company, given that the majority of Google users today search the web via mobile devices, like smartphones.

Google is not offering a standalone tool for web publishers to help them get ready for this shift, but did point to a number of resources that can provide general insights about site performance.
