Sometimes website quality can’t be fixed with technical changes
Maybe it’s not the Core Web Values. Perhaps it’s not links or that nasty pagination problem. You can make it fast and sometimes Google still doesn’t care. Sometimes a website’s quality isn’t found in the presentation. Sometimes it’s what’s being presented.
“if you want search engines to take your site more seriously, you really, really need to improve the game there.”
So making changes to your site speed, core web vitals, changing your structured data, title tags, etc – is simply not enough. You need to look at your website as a whole and see what you can vastly improve on, including site content, navigation, user experience and much more. It is very rarely just one thing.” John Mueller via Twitter
