An SEO professional asked John Mueller in a hangout about Google using data from Google Chrome for ranking purposes.
John explained that they likely do not use anything from Google Chrome for ranking.
The only thing that occurs in Chrome is for the page experience report. They use the Chrome user experience report data, and this is aggregated data of what users see when they go to a website with regards to the page experience.
This would be the only thing they use from Chrome within ranking.
Additionally, the SEO professional was curious about Google Analytics data. Do they use any data from Google Analytics for ranking?
John answered that they don’t use that at all.
The SEO professional then asked if the Google Analytics metrics of bounce rate and time on site were useless for ranking.
John said that this data is useful for site owners to look at, but not for ranking purposes.
