Page Experience First Steps
What is Page Experience?
Page Experience is all about making sure people using our websites, apps and pages are experiencing the best we can give them. While meeting people’s search queries is ultimately our goal, It has to be served up to Google evolving standards. The standards can be understood in two different camps or distinct areas, one is “Google Core web Vitals” and two is everything not related to the core web vitals.
Core Web Vitals (CWV)
long Content Paint (LCP) (loading)
First Input Delay (FID) (interactivity)
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) (visual stability)
None Core Web Vitals
Every site should have an SSL certificate and yes it’s free in a lot of places if your hosting service is honest.
With the world evolving towards mobile accessing websites in 201. Building a responsive site to fit a phone is one thing to be mobile-friendly. Text size, tabs and buttons too small are just a couple extra issues for optimizing needs. Rember mobile-friendly doesn’t mean mobile-first indexing will happen. Content is king and it still might not index because of minor discrepancies.
No one likes popups interrupting your web experience. Such tactics are normally used by spammy and untrustworthy sites, Google keeps changing everything to combat spam. Google wants to be the best search engine delivering exactly what you quired while keeping you safe. Google says it all here “January 10, 2017 update: Starting today, pages where content is not easily accessible to a user on the transition from the mobile search results may not rank as high. As we said, this new signal is just one of hundreds of signals that are used in ranking and the intent of the search query is still a very strong signal, so a page may still rank highly if it has great, relevant content.” – Google Webmaster Team
