Google: Speed will be factor on mobile. Or not
The company announced that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches.
"The 'Speed Update,' as we’re calling it, will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users and will only affect a small percentage of queries.
"It applies the same standard to all pages, regardless of the technology used to build the page.
"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." ■
