Google: Page Experience Update Does Not Have A Whitelist List



Google: Page Experience Update Does Not Have A Whitelist List

Google’s John Mueller said as far as he knows the page experience update does not have any exception list or whitelist. Meaning, there is not a list of sites where Google says do not apply the page experience update to. John wrote on Twitter “as far as I know, there’s no list of exceptions,” when asked about it for the page experience update.

This came up when someone asked about some large brand sites having poor web vital scores and having things that are not in accordance with the page experience update, like annoying interstitials. Here are those tweets:

Here is where John Mueller said there is no exception list:

Now, just to be clear, we know this is a light factor, a tie breaker. If you search for ESPN and the site sucks, Google is still going to show you ESPN.

John explained this as well:

Now, Google has talked about whitelists and exception lists before. Google in 2011 first said generally there are not whitelists for algorithms in Google Search but then Google later admitted to having exception lists. One example is SafeSearch where Google can say a site flagged by the adult filter is adult or not adult and thus that would be on a list. Google did also say that there are no whitelists for Panda or Penguin and you’d assume the same would be for core updates.

So there you have it, no exception or whitelists for the page experience update.

Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365: What’s the best office suite for business?



Google G Suite vs. Microsoft Office

Once upon a time, Microsoft Office ruled the business world. By the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Microsoft’s office suite had brushed aside rivals such as WordPerfect Office and Lotus SmartSuite, and there was no competition on the horizon.

Then in 2006 Google came along with Google Docs & Spreadsheets, a collaborative online word processing and spreadsheet duo that was combined with other business services to form the Google Apps suite, later rebranded as G Suite, and now as Google Workspace. Although Google’s productivity suite didn’t immediately take the business world by storm, over time it has gained both in features and in popularity, boasting 6 million paying customers, according to Google’s most recent public stats in March 2020.

Microsoft, meanwhile, has shifted its emphasis away from its traditional licensed Office software to Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), a subscription-based version that’s treated more like a service, with frequent updates and new features. Microsoft 365 is what we’ve focused on in this story.

Nowadays, choosing an office suite isn’t as simple as it once was. We’re here to help.

Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365

Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 have much in common. Both are subscription-based, charging businesses per-person fees every month, in varying tiers, depending on the capabilities their customers are looking for. Although Google Workspace is web-based, it has the capability to work offline as well. And while Microsoft 365 is based on installed desktop software, it also provides (less powerful) web-based versions of its applications.

Both suites work well with a range of devices. Because it’s web-based, Google Workspace works in most browsers on any operating system, and Google also offers mobile apps for Android and iOS. Microsoft provides Office client apps for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, and its web-based apps work across browsers.
