Prepare for Google’s Approaching Update | Simplemachine
Google’s approaching update for a new algorithm, dubbed Page Experience, is the talk of the tech world as it has the potential to change search results significantly. There is no need to panic about your website’s traffic just yet – the new Page Experience algorithm will not be implemented until some point next year. However, the time to start preparing is now. Simplemachine’s inbound marketing gurus are here to ensure your website, as well as other components of your online footprint, are ready for the algorithm update.
Prepare for Google’s Approaching Update | Page Experience
The Page Experience update is best described as a signal that gauges how web surfers perceive interactions with web pages. The new algorithm will reward pages that are optimized for a positive webpage experience interaction. Alternatively, pages that have a disappointing user experience will be punished by the Page Experience algorithm. The aim is to provide websites with the positive reinforcement necessary to reach user expectations while using the web on mobile devices as well as traditional desktop computers.
The new algorithm should boost business success on the internet as user engagement increases, and websites are used with comparably less friction. In plain English, the Page Experience algorithm update is centered on measuring how usable a website is rather than primarily emphasizing its SEO and content quality. Think of the new update as a means of gauging a web page’s user experience design.
As an example, consider the following scenario. A web surfer is using your website and attempts to click the page to go backward, yet an install bar appears at the top of the screen, and the entire webpage is pushed downward. The result is the user mistakenly placing an order, rendering the Page Experience metric quite low. The overarching aim of this algorithm update is to ensure websites that rank toward the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs) do not result in experiences that users dislike. In short, user-friendly sites will rank better than those that are not.
The Importance of Google’s Approaching Update
Google wants websites with top-notch user experience designs to rank toward the top of the SERPs simply because the on-page experience is that much better when users can seamlessly navigate a responsive and intuitive page. This means Google is broadening its focus from relevant, high-quality content to the quality of the user experience design.
The moral of this story is web surfers favor websites with a truly intuitive user experience design as well as sites with informative content. Therefore, it only makes sense that Google updates its search engine algorithm to include Page Experience. The websites that web surfers truly love the most will ascend the SERPs, ensuring there is a reward for elite content as well as an elite user experience design.
