by | Mar 7, 2024

People use Google to find information from a variety of sources and media, including large corporations and independent authors of text, photos, and video. Google has  continued to provide more context to the search results page so that you can understand the information you see . Google has now added features and design elements to enable you explore information in new ways.

Today,  Google has added a few additional features to the search page that expand on this effort and provide you even more details about the websites you view, enabling you to browse websites with confidence.

Google has announced a few adjustments to the way search results are shown, but these shouldn’t really have any influence on SEO or Google usage in general.In order to make it easier for visitors to quickly identify the website that is linked with each result, Google is first adding site names to search results on mobile.

The Online tech giant also updating the size and shape of the favicon (a website’s logo or icon) that appears in Search, to make it easier to see on the page. It is also stated by Google that they will keep extending these changes to Search ads to increase clarity and advertiser transparency at a glance.

Part of helping you make sense of the information you see is ensuring that ads are clearly labeled, which is why our label will now be featured on its own line in the top-left corner of Search ads. We also want the label to be prominent and clear across different types of paid content. That’s why when ads show on mobile search results, they will now be labeled with the word “Sponsored” in bold black text. This new label and its prominent position continues to meet our high standards for being distinguishable from search results and builds on our existing efforts to make information about paid content clear.
