Google Makes Mobile Page Speed A Ranking Factor In Search

Google Makes Mobile Page Speed A Ranking Factor In Search Google Makes Mobile Page Speed A Ranking Factor In Search

The company today announced it will start considering page speed as an additional factoring when determining the order in which mobile search results are shown. The company is calling it the "Speed Update", and it will only impact a small percentage of queries, Google reiterated to us. One example of that is the company's controversial Accelerate Mobile Pages (AMP) project, which places sites with AMP support in front of everyone else on search. Google claims a slow webpage may still rank highly if it has relevant content. The "Speed Update" is only using the page speed signal to measure and look for the "slowest" experiences.

The change will apply the same standard to all pages, we're told, regardless of the technology used to build the page. Speed has been used as a ranking signal for desktop search since 2010- this marks the first time it will be used to rank pages on mobile. According to Google, this change (dubbed the "Speed Update") will be applicable starting from July 2018.

Google is not offering a standalone tool for web publishers to help them get ready for this shift, but did point to a number of resources that can provide general insights about site performance.

Google's ever-evolving page rank algorithm is notoriously tricky, to say the least.
