It also checks if the content is a core topic of the website meaning if your content is not relevant to your main topic it`s decreasing factor for Google.

    First 10-15 content of your website must be pointing out the actual subject of your website if your website not talking about economics Google is confused and will not rank your site in suitable category your website in.

  • Titles and Font Size: Page titles and the average font size of terms in documents matter for ranking. That`s why always use the same font size in your site especially for browsing comes from mobile devices are crucial.

Based on the leaked documents, here are some predictions for future Google core updates:

Already started with Google Ai Overviews announced last week check here to learn more

  1. Google will focus more on user experience, like how long people stay on a site and how happy they are with it.
  2. They might share more about how they rank sites to build trust with website owners and SEO`s.
  3. Google could track who writes content better, valuing expertise more in rankings but not counting on this so much ! (Site Authority needs to be high in order to compete.)
  4. Expect them to prioritize fresh content and handle sensitive topics better, which already taken place according to our A.I.D Metrics
  5. They may improve ranking based on how well content fits a site’s main topics also a ranking factor before the leak but it will take more important step in ranking.Why Google doing this?Each crawl and search from users have a cost for Google, so in order to reduce costs Google won`t come back and check your old content all the time, best way to course is checking the latest changes in your site. At the moment we are not sure how this will effect Off-Page SEO and Re-edit content in your site content.
  6. Google might use more signals from outside sources like social media for rankings and apparently they will heavily rely on Browser Data from Chrome. Cookies on the other hand still have the value for Ranking though.
  7. Small sites might get new features to compete better in search results. Which became pretty much impossible according to leak in order to get rank higher you need to get backlinks from High DR or DA in general authoritative websites and content needs to shy, don`t forget your content needs to be unique and comply with useful content update from Google.But can you really blame Google on this one? Artificial Intelligence`s emerging impact on Web and Social effects generated immerse amount of content which basically the same exact thing so Google take a step to eliminate this un-useful content and ranked the actual websites which has traffic and trust. And our prediction as Page Labs , ranking algorithm will take stronger steps into this direction meaning there will be no shortcut in SEO in upcoming days !
  8. Links and user clicks will still be crucial for rankings, with potential changes in measurement.
  9. Google may update how it analyzes page titles and content for better optimization. Or in this case Snippets
