Signed exchanges (SXG) enable Google Lookup to prefetch your written content while preserving the user’s privacy. In observe, this means that equally AMP and non-AMP outcomes shown on Google Search may possibly prefetch a handful of key assets (such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, photographs, or fonts) in a privateness-preserving fashion, if the associated website supports SXG, Google explained.

Google posted a recognize about this in this Google Group this weekend stating “Google Search is organizing to launch SXG aid for desktop end users in the coming weeks. Web pages employing responsive web design or different mobile/desktop URLs really don’t need to have to consider action. Web sites applying dynamic serving (varying by Person-Agent header) will will need to annotate their internet pages as cell- or desktop-only, as documented below. For example: In any other case, desktop customers may see the mobile edition of the web site.”

Google mentioned it will be “reaching out independently to SXG websites who we’ve found to use dynamic serving, but I needed a broad announcement in scenario there are any that we miss.”

This website however makes use of dynamic serving, so I wonder if we will get this notice or not? I may well just wait and not do something to see if we cause an inform.

I surprise when Google will get started notifying web sites about this and I suspect most will want to include the meta tag if they are working with dynamic serving?
