Get ready – the upcoming Google Page Experience Update, which was initially only supposed to apply to mobile sites, will now include desktop as well.

The official announcement was made yesterday at Google I/O by Jeffrey Jose, a Google Product Manager. Jose explained that while the Google page experience update will only look at mobile pages at first, Google is looking at rolling it out for desktop pages as well.

“Page experience is important on all types of surfaces. While we’re starting with mobile in mid-June, page experience ranking is coming to desktop as well!”Jose said on Twitter.

Jose also posted a link to a video titled “Preparing for page experience ranking  ,” that, you guessed it, explains how to prepare for the page experience update. 

The desktop rollout will not occur right away when the Page Experience Update launches for mobile pages in June. It is not yet known when the update will apply to desktop, however, Google says it will provide an update when the desktop version is expected to go live so SEOs and site owners can adequately prepare.

“As always we’ll be providing updated guidance, documentation and tools,” said Jose.

The Google Search Ranking Update Spikes Again

06/29/2022

After a few days of cal, more tremors and volatility can be seen, possibly from the unconfirmed Google Search ranking algorithm update we wrote about earlier.

The new update looks like it’s just getting started and some of the tracking tools have already picked up on it.

There were rumours within the SEO community that there may be an update happening. Some said it will happen on June 27t or June 28th, but there’s no official confirmation about that yet. Also, everything looks way calmer today.

We saw large fluctuations around the 19th, 20th, and 23rd, of June. Google’s core update, May 2022, began releasing on May 25 and it was officially proclaimed complete on June 9. But, big fluctuations were noticed before and after the start and end dates.

Unconfirmed Google Search Ranking Update

06/27/2022

A possible Google search ranking algorithm update might be happening as we speak, but everything is still very much on the low.

In case you missed it (which we highly doubt), Google’s May 2022 core update began rolling out on May 25, 2022 and was officially pronounced complete on June 9th, but we saw significant tremors before and after those dates. Were the tremors related to that update or the current one – only Google can tell. The SEO community started seeing some volatility and fluctuations on June 19 and is left confused.

It’s not unusual for a core update to be complete and for tweaks to happen to the algorithm, too. Some pages at the end of a line might work their way up to the top. Read what the community has to say here.

Barry Schwartz wrote about this first and is still keeping an eye out.

Some sites seem to have recovered from the May 2022 core update, while others have not, and for the most part, sites are reporting big swings in Google search results.

The biggest spike seems to have happened on June 23, but everything looks normal for now. As you can see from the chart below, just because it’s normal now, doesn’t mean it will stay that way for long, even after the core update is fully rolled out.
