Using Page Speed in Mobile Search Ranking

Using Page Speed in Mobile Search Ranking
People want to be able to find answers to their questions as fast as possible, studies show that people really care about the speed of a page. Although speed has been used in ranking for some time, and Google have announced that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches.

The “Speed Update,” as Google are calling it, will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users and will only affect a small percentage of queries. It applies the same standard to all pages, regardless of the technology used to build the page. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal, so a slow page may still rank highly if it has great, relevant content.

On the Google webmaster blog they are encouraging developers to think broadly about how performance affects a user’s experience of their page and to consider a variety of user experience metrics. Although there is no tool that directly indicates whether a page is affected by this new ranking factor, here are some resources that can be used to evaluate a page’s performance.

•Chrome User Experience Report, a public dataset of key user experience metrics for popular destinations on the web, as experienced by Chrome users under real-world conditions

•Lighthouse, an automated tool and a part of Chrome Developer Tools for auditing the quality (performance, accessibility, and more) of web pages

•PageSpeed Insights, a tool that indicates how well a page performs on the Chrome UX Report and suggests performance optimisations.

Social and emotional development at Hereward College

Promoting Social and emotional development at Hereward College

Hereward College, which specialises in educating young people with learning disabilities and additional needs, has been praised by Ofsted inspectors who said students there “enjoy their learning” and “feel safe and protected”. At Hereward College we believe that emotional self-awareness and resilience is central to achieving life success, independence and well-being. 

This is developed through areas such as trust, security, creativity and self-discovery. All learners have access to Learning Mentors who support learners with their personal development in a supportive and understanding environment.

Learners discover who they are, what they like and why in one to one sessions, groups and unstructured social times.

These lifelong skills provide a platform for developing into mature and independent young adults, able to make choices, form good relationships and manage emotional responses positively.

The skills also contribute to curricular achievement, individual wellbeing, employability skills and future success.Learners who receive emotion coaching are more likely to:

  • Perform better academically
  • Be well liked by others
  • Have fewer behavioural problems
  • Have fewer infectious illnesses
  • Be more emotionally stable
  • Be more resilient
  • Focus attention and motivate themselves

Hereward College is a college for young people with disabilities and additional needs based in Coventry. Since 1971 we have been offering inclusive provision and specialist facilities for both day and residential learners with complex disabilities and learning difficulties.

Our vision is to prepare our learners for the next stage of their lives, providing them with outstanding employability skills and greater control over their future. We have a focus on creating independent individuals who can make more of their own decisions about work, education, health and living.

We have extensive partnerships with employers and an expanding supported internship study programme. The internships build upon all the skills that the young people have developed in college and extend them even further in real work situations.

Political activity is also important to the Hereward community and we encourage our learners to have a ‘voice’ in the issues that affect them. We also support the Natspec and NUS campaigns which addresses the inequalities faced by young people with learning difficulties or disabilities.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our learners and our hugely committed and dedicated staff which support them.
