Google Page Experience Update Yardsticks in Google Search Console

    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.

    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.
