When Google introduced the launch date of the Google Page Experience Update it additionally stated that they might launch a label or indicator within the search outcomes to convey to the searcher which pages do properly with these metrics. We noticed Google testing this icon some time again as properly. But have in mind, this indicator might by no means launch.
Martin Splitt from Google confirmed yesterday that this label might by no means develop into a actuality. Martin stated on Twitter “Can I re-emphasize that the badging is an experiment? It may not happen in the end. We are looking into options here, that’s it.”
Can I re-emphasize that the badging is an experiment? It might not occur ultimately. We are trying into choices right here, that is it.

Here is a display shot of the take a look at displaying the icon:
Personally, I’m not an enormous fan of those indicators. Most searchers haven’t any clue what they imply and could also be confused by the icon. Google needs to encourage web site homeowners to ensure they hit these metrics, therefore why they dangle rating advantages for it and likewise a attainable label within the search outcomes. But once more, will the label confuse searchers? Most searchers haven’t any clue what the AMP icon means even as we speak.
