NET and Google search

From this NET blog we learn that web page usability statistics will be incorporated into the search algorithm of Google starting May 2021.

Core web “vitals” will be more important than ever and this would seem to be good for NET and FSLY…

“On November 10th, Google announced that Google Search will directly take web performance and page experience data into account when ranking results on their search engine results pages (SERPs), beginning in May 2021.

Specifically, Google Search will prioritize results based on how pages score on Core Web Vitals, a measurement methodology Cloudflare has worked closely with Google to establish, and we have implemented support for in our analytics tools.“
