Google is making some significant changes to its search engine algorithm where users see multiple listings on the search results page from the same website. Now, the Google wouldn’t show more than two listings from the same site in top results.
In a tweet through Google Search Liasion, the tech giant mentioned, “Have you already done a search and gotten many links all from the same site in the top results? We’ve heard your feedback about this and wanting more variety. A new change now launching in Google Search is designed to provide more diversity of our results.”
The company also added that it will show more than two results from same site in cases where the search engine algorithms determine that the results are specifically relevant for the particular search.
Currently, Google fetches results from websites considering the subdomains and root domains different. This means that the subdomains are treated as separate websites. Now, with the changes, the subdomains will be treated as a part of the root domains.
For instance, your subdomain like user.yourwebsite.com and your root domain – www.yourwebsite.com will be considered from the same single site and counted towards two results.
“Finally, the site diversity launch is separate from the June 2019 Core Update that began this week. These are two different, unconnected releases.”
The change is still rolling out and Google is working on it for improvements.
