Google News ranking algorithm won't factor in if a publisher is mobile-friendly or not, at least not yet.
|New mobile friendly algorithm|
Everyone is preparing for the mobile-friendly
Google algorithm which will touch down April 21st. But Google News
publishers don’t have to worry just yet, at least in terms of the ranking in
the Google News search results.
Google News community manager, Stacie Chan,
said in a Google+
hangout yesterday, that as of now, the Google News ranking team has no
plans on implementing the mobile-friendly
algorithm into the Google News results, at least not yet.
Stacie said this at the 23 minute mark
into the video, which I transcribed:
As of now, Google News is not committed to
making that change yet. We are always exploring because we think it is awesome
that sites are trying to be more mobile friendly. I love that. And Google News
is very well aware that search is doing that… We are definitely exploring that
option as well but don’t have an exact timeline for that or even weather or not
we will implement that.
Here is the video:
What I said I am unclear about is if the In The News box found in Google’s web search results, that include both news publishers and non-news publishers, will be included in this mobile ranking algorithm or not. That is unclear, but I suspect since it is not news specific (although it sounds like it is), it should be included in the mobile ranking algorithm.
