Google Search May Use Core Web Vitals Data From Noindexed Pages (WTF, skanky bot)

Google may or may not use the Core Web Vitals metrics from pages not within Google’s indexed, pages you may explicitly block from indexing, as part of its overall calculation for the upcoming Google Page Experience Update. John Mueller of Google said he believes this to be the case but is not 100% sure.

John later explained on Twitter the rational for this, saying “user-experience is based on more than just the initial landing page in many cases. The product / shop / checkout example fits well there. Often people go to websites, they don’t just go to an individual page. It’s not always clear & easy though.”

In short, once a user goes to a specific page through search that is indexed, if the other pages they click on are slow or a poor user experience, then is that a good thing?
