Last Monday (5), Google announced that its search results on US desktops will have continuous screen scrolling. Different, however, from change implemented at the end of last year for mobile devices in the country, your scroll will not be infinite, just counting with many more results before the appearance of the “See more” button.
Altogether, the Google intends to show six pages of search results to the usero, before he can click on the “See more” button. These pages will all appear in sequence and automatically as the individual scrolls down the screen in search of more answers to their survey.
In October 2021, when the news arrived for mobile devices, the company commented on the advantages of this update. According to Google, its users usually browse up to four pages when using its search service. This search becomes easier and faster if the loading is automatic.
In the company’s view, the spontaneous appearance of more answers helps to show options that the user had not considered and that he might have missed because he was not interested in clicking to continue.
Despite Google’s explanation, not everyone seems to have liked the change implemented by the company.
In the announcement post, many criticisms were already being registered in the comments. In one of them, a user asked that the update be at least optional and questioned whether it would no longer be possible to send a link to a specific search page to someone else.
Others, however, showed interest in the idea, commenting that this could be a “victory for less popular sites”, which would now have a better chance of being seen.
It is worth remembering that, currently, the updating of Google search results is Restricted to English devices only in the US🇧🇷 Despite this, it is to be wondered if the novelty will not be implemented in other markets and languages, in view of the reasons given by the company for making the change.
