It’s been a long time in the making, but Google recently announced that beginning in mid-November of 2020, its Googlebot will begin actively crawling some websites over HTTP/2. We understand that there are many who have questions about how this highly anticipated change will affect their website’s page rank, performance and search results, however this is a highly complex topic. We recommend reading their recent HTTP/2 webmaster blog to learn more about the technical implementations, and whether or not it will affect your website.
