Google INP Score

Frequently Asked Questions

A poor INP negatively impacts user experience through laggy interactions. It can also affect search rankings as Google considers INP for page experience signals.

INP should be monitored regularly along with other metrics during development and post-deployment. New features may cause regressions requiring constant optimisation.

Complex layouts, large payloads, synchronous blocking JavaScript, redundant UI updates, inefficient event handling and poorly scheduled long tasks usually increase INP.

A complete site rebuild may only be needed in some cases. Optimisation strategies like better code organisation and asynchronous rendering can improve INP.

Factors like server response time, database queries, and front-end file size also impact INP. Optimising hosting, CDNs, databases, caching, etc., helps achieve a quicker time to interaction.
