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.

New Tremors and Volatility On Google!

08/08/2022

Seems like Google is planning on another Search ranking algorithm update, the Search Engine Roundtable reports. Or, as Barry Schwartz suggests – the tremors noticed this Saturday, August 6th, might even be tremors caused by the now finished Product Reviews update from July.

The chatter among the SEO community is pretty loud and the new volatility has been noticed. The drops in Search have been circling around 30% all over the world, and traffic is not much better, according to people on the WebmasterWorld forum.

Glenn Gabe, an SEO expert, shared some interesting graphs on Twitter:

The tools are always here to prove what’s going on. As you can see, there were quite a few spikes, especially during the weekend:

Another Search Ranking Update In The Making?

07/11/2022

A new search ranking update might be in the making. Or maybe it’s the same one from a week ago, we seriously don’t know.

What we do know is that the weekend behind us was unstable and that the update might have caused damage to some websites. Still, Google hasn’t yet confirmed any of the search ranking updates, but the tools speak for themselves. According to them, Google Search results are again experiencing volatility and ranking instability.

The tools are showing spikes for the weekend period (July 9th and 10th), and more chatter can be heard across the SEO community.

It’s a bit calmer today.
