On Twitter, Google’s John Mueller and Gary Illyes explained that Google’s Page Speed update has no impact on indexing. The mobile speed update affects only ranking in mobile search results. That means that Google will index slow pages. However, they won’t rank as well as fast pages.
Here are the tweets of John Mueller and Gary Illyes
The mobile speed update affects only ranking in mobile search results; it's independent of the indexing.— John ☆.o(≧▽≦)o.☆ (@JohnMu) 31. Januar 2018
Why would indexing be related to speed? (I'm kinda confused how this was connected, wonder if we need to update something on our side to make it clearer)— John ☆.o(≧▽≦)o.☆ (@JohnMu) 31 January 2018
Slow pages can get into the index. The speed update is a ranking change that has no direct effect on indexing.— Gary "鯨理" Illyes (@methode) 31 January 2018
