Faster websites will soon get priority on Google Search results on mobile

Faster websites will soon get priority on Google Search results on mobile

Back in February 2016, Google started highlighting sites that used its Accelerated Mobile Page technology to speed up the rendering of pages when using the mobile version of Google search. The company ensures that only a small percentage of search queries will be affected by the changes, because only the slowest pages will be pushed down the results.

Google has been prepping website owners for the Speed Update for sometime.

Under the change, Google will take page speeds into account in determining its rankings for mobile searches. At the moment, it's not yet clear if the same algorithm change will be adapted to desktop users as well. While the update is slated to only impact the slowest pages, companies may want to find ways to speed up their mobile pages to keep users' attention.

One of them is the Chrome User Experience Report, which contains user experience metrics collected from Chrome users on various popular web destinations.

A few days ago, Google announced the introduction of an enhanced PageSpeed Insights tool to aid website owners in optimizing the loading speed of their pages.

If you're the proud owner of a website, the performance and load times of your website may soon affect the visibility of your content on Google Search.

This is completely algorithmic. Shockingly, people aren't too happy with Google's current approach towards providing users with a faster mobile web.

The intent of the signal is to improve the user experience on search. By April of previous year, Google News started giving priority to news articles published on AMP sites. However, if a page built with AMP provides a slow experience to users, it may also rank lower in the results.
