Prepare Your Website for a Google Core Algorithm Update
Google holds a greater responsibility to bring in accurate information every time there is a search. A Google core gets updated when Google makes important and large changes to its search engine algorithm and systems. This is to ensure Google is doing its job right. And this time the Google Core Algorithm update favours the user side more giving more importance to websites with better user experience. This is why you need to prepare your site for this change with Google Search Engine Optimization.
Here is how you need to work on Internet Marketing Services. Start with finding out where your site currently stands by looking into your Core Web Vitals report in the Google Search Console. Then identify your URLs’ performance and find out if they rank as good, needs improvement or poor. And now it’s time for you to consider the bigger picture of Google’s page experience and craft a holistic approach to improving your UX.
So here are steps to prepare your site for improving and adapt to the latest update.
A banner image creates the first impression of your website. And with the first impression, we not only mean the good looks but also about its optimisation. The aim is to make it appear within the LCP threshold. Check for not only just banner images but also all the images on your website to improve loading speed.
Upgrade your Web Hosting
Make a better try on picking a better Web hosting service too. Because a faster server response is going to earn you extra points on efficiency.
Keep Space for Loading Content
Keep CLS at a minimum by including width and height attributes on your image and video elements. This enables the browser to give the right amount of space while the media is loading and will eliminate unexpected shifts in your layout.
Content is King
The upgrade might be focusing on user experience, but what outweighs that strategy is the relevance to that to the subject. So Content Marketing is crucial and if you can provide your users with valuable information, you have already out ruled other websites, even for those with better user experience than yours.
Use all Optimization Tools
You are trying to get recognised by google as first to appear on the page. So why not use google’s best tools itself? From Search Console, PageSpeed Insights, Lighthouse, Chrome DevTools, Chrome UX report and the new Web Vitals Chrome extension.
That’s it! You are ready for the upgrade.
