Google to use mobile page loading speed to rank websites

Google Will Again Prioritize Faster Sites in Mobile Search

In July 2018, Google will begin considering page speed when ranking mobile search results. They added that "the intent of the search query is still a very strong signal, so a slow page may still rank highly if it has great, relevant content". The company has been using its enormous clout in the search space to get website owners to optimize their pages for mobile use in a variety of ways.

Google is going to start penalizing websites that take too long to load on phones. That change focused on ensuring both the mobile site isn't a truncated version of the desktop, and that both contain the same information, which doesn't always happen despite the increasing preference of mobile web browsers over their desktop counterparts.

Brigitte Bardot: actresses complain about harassment to…
The 74-year-old went on to apologize to victims of sexual assault, saying there was "nothing good" about harassment. "In the vast majority of cases they are being hypocritical, ridiculous, uninteresting".

Wang and Phan encouraged webmasters to review various user experience metrics that Google has made available over the years to figure out how their site performance might be impacting the overall experience of mobile users.

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. The company has previously used speed as a factor on desktop, but this will mark the first time Google has done so on mobile. For sites that are not in the Chrome User Experience Report data set, we recommend using Lighthouse to evaluate the performance of a page.

After that, Australia could ask the WTO to adjudicate, with a view to forcing Canada to change its laws or risk trade sanctions. In British Columbia, Australia is upset that standard grocery stores can stock the province's wines, but not imported lines.

The update will apply the same speed criteria to all pages, regardless of the technology used to build them, our sister site ZDNet said. The search giant attributed the change to its users caring about the speed of a webpage.
