In a year where everything is constantly changing, Google is giving us a heads up. It’s unusual for the tech company to offer advance notice of upcoming algorithm changes.
This time, however, they’re letting us know what they’ll be looking for and when the changes will go into effect. Jamie Kelly, director of marketing services at FWM, said, “They’ve given us the study guide before the exam, and let us know exactly what we need to do beforehand.” Jamie and Tom talked about Google’s core web vitals update, which won’t happen until 2021, and how it focuses on the more technical side of web development.
Jamie said the new update will focus on user experience and three factors relating to it: page load speed, page interactivity, and page stability.
