My SEO team told me Google SEO engine uses the page speed in its algo to rank the pages. It is confirmed by this blog too.

In my case, page speed is different for end-user coming from browser than google bot crawling the site. My question is does SEO uses the page speed experienced. by end user or by google crwaler bot ?

Also From the blog I mentioned, looks like it just uses the Time to first byte(TTFB) not the time taken to render/paint the dom on the browser?


Google will use the page speed of "PageSpeed Insights". Get your blog/site speed check here and analyze the score. enter image description here

Also, google will suggest you suggestions to improve page speed, follow that :)
