For those who are concerned, a new category simply titled as Page Experience has appeared in my Google Search Console.
Not much information listed. I doubt it's the final version too. But what's explicitly mentioned are:
- Core Web Vitals. Described as "URLs with status Poor or Need improvement in the Core Web Vitals report are marked as Failing in the Page Experience report. URL status is calculated according to different time schedules in the two reports, so the Page Experience status might not reflect the current Core Web Vitals status for a given URL."
- Mobile Usability. Described as "URLs with mobile usability issues in the Mobile Usability report are marked as Failing in the Page Experience report. URL status is calculated according to different time schedules in the two reports, so the Page Experience status might not reflect the current Mobile Usability report status for a given URL."
- Security Issues. Described as "Security issues can prevent some or all of your site from being considered as having a good page experience."
- HTTPS. Described as "If a significant number of pages on your site use HTTP, you will see an HTTPS warning in the Page Experience report, although only HTTP pages on the site are affected."
The search console is configured for my blog, and so far, I'm scoring a hundred percent.
I've read somewhere too that the update is more about deceptive behavior. For example, huge picture links very near to text links i.e. betting that you'd click the wrong link. Links that do not represent the anchor text. Etc.
Lastly, there's a tab for Ad Experience too. Described as "Ad Experience issues can prevent all URLs on your site from being considered a good page experience. Note that Ad Experience status is not available to the Page Experience report, but is considered when generating search results."
I'm unsure how they gauge this. However, whenever I turn on Google Adsense auto-ads, my pages are inundated with ads every other paragraph. I'm assuming Google itself is actually fine with heavy ad presence. Unless somehow, the ads are covering the content, popping up every other second, etc.
"I've read somewhere too that the update is more about deceptive behavior. For example, huge picture links very near to text links i.e. betting that you'd click the wrong link. Links that do not represent the anchor text. Etc."
That does sound much more realistic than some of the other interpretations that I've seen on here. People have a tendency to interpret the expression "user experience" in a very literal and personal way, that corresponds with their own particular sentiments.
The ads thing is a kind of cat and mouse game, as far as I can see. That's why the style of ads and Google "rules" regularly change.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

Elsewhere on the forums people are reporting very long delays in getting indexed by Google - the delays seem to be increasing. Obviously this has been caused by the NOINDEX tag added to new hubs when under review and to ZZZ hubs while being reconsidered. Surely this is of concern to HP? As a writer...

When ı search about a topic the first page results are not very high quality material, ordinary stuff. Then what makes them on top page?

Everybody is posting goals, but they are way, way beyond me. I've only been hubbing for about 2 weeks (though I wrote two pitiful ones before that and posted a little in the forums) but the results really excite me.15 hubs (including the early bird pair) have produced over 700 views to date -...

I climbed up to 7th on the first page for a fairly competitive keyword prior to my holiday, I did extensive backlinking on sites PR0-PR9 but after slowing down somewhat and my guess is that the sites above me have pretty solid backlinks and SEO

The one that appears after the 20 to 30 second video ad? If it isn't, how come there's no close button unless a viewer moves their cursor over it or taps on it? The ad has an "X", so wouldn't it make sense to give the site video one too, so a reader has the choice to view or close it, and...
