Google Page Experience Update May 2021

Do you guys have any plans to tackle the updates coming in May, specifically to improving page speed?

Google plans to update its algorithm in 2021 to include a factor called Page Experience.

  • This includes existing Google Search signals such as mobile-friendliness, safe-browsing, HTTPS, and intrusive interstitial guidelines.

  • It also includes metrics in Google’s Web Vitals to do with a site’s loading speed, interactivity, and visual stability.

  • For site owners and others, understanding these signals and making the necessary changes should be a priority.

  • Among the steps to take are optimizing for mobile, improving page speeds, CTAs, and alt text for images.

Thank you!
