Google Updates Its Page Layout Algorithm “Top Heavy”

Leave a comment

In order to improve the quality of search results, Google has just released an update to the Top Heavy algorithm that downgrades the ranking of websites with too many ads. The Top Heavy algorithm was first launched in January 2012 because many users had complained that it was difficult to find the actual content on some webpages due to excessive ads. The algorithm looks at the layout of webpages and if a page carries too many ads at the top or distracts users from finding the content they are looking for, Google will downgrade the ranking of this page. The latest update of the Top Heavy algorithm was activated on February 6th.
