Google Sends Notifications of HTTP/2 Googlebot Crawling


Google Sends Notifications of HTTP/2 Googlebot Crawling

Google announced that it is sending out notices to let publishers know that Google has begun crawling their websites with the advanced HTTP/2 protocol. The notice is only being sent out to those whose sites have been upgraded.

Why HTTP/2

HTTP/2 (also referred to as h2) is a network protocol that servers, browsers and bots can use to transfer data from a server.

HTTP/2 is more efficient than the older HTTP/1.1 protocol and is able to transfer data at faster rates the older protocol.

The benefit for publishers is that this will result in less server load, which means there is a decreased possibility of an error (like a timeout error) when Google is crawling a site at the same time the server is under a heavy load.

An additional upside is that with less strain the site will be able toremain zippy for users that are accessing the website.

The announcement that Google was sending out notices was made over Twitter by Google’s Gary Illyes.

The tweet said:

“just pressed the button to send a large batch of messages to sites which have been opted in to HTTP/2 crawling. if something is not clear, follow the link in the message”

It was accompanied by a screenshot of an example of a notice, showing what it looks like.

Another tweet indicated that Googlebot’s HTTP/2 crawling is slowly coming online, not all at once.

According to Gary:

“the h2 crawler traffic is gradually ramping up, it’s not like you got the message and suddenly all crawl is h2. it may take a few days”

Will Googlebot Crawl all Eligible Sites?

Google will determine whether a site benefits from the new HTTP/2 crawl. If it sees there is no benefit then Google may decide not to use the new HTTP/2 protocol.

According to Google:

“In our evaluations we found little to no benefit for certain sites (for example, those with very low qps) when crawling over h2. Therefore we have decided to switch crawling to h2 only when there’s clear benefit for the site. We’ll continue to evaluate the performance gains and may change our criteria for switching in the future.”

Crawling with HTTP/2 also depends on whether or not your server is set up to handle it. If you don’t know if your site can handle HTTP/2 crawling give it a check at KeyCDN.



Google Workspace vs. Microsoft 365: Vilken är den bästa kontorssviten för företag?


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.
