Google Search Reverts to Pagination on Desktop

Google Search has opted to switch off its continuous scroll experience for users when searching through the desktop.

The search engine giant recently mentioned how the old feature would enable more results to load when users scroll past the initial page for search results. Instead, the classic and old bars located at the footer would be visible now on Google Search, it explained.

The change would come into play starting today as the search giant first rolled out continuous search in December of 2022 and then on mobile in October of 2021. So it would not be wrong to mention how the feature only lasted 1.5 years on a desktop.

As far as the change taking place on mobile search is concerned, that will be sunet by next month or so.

The news was confirmed by the company’s spokesperson who added recently how the Next button would arise at the page’s bottom on Desktop while the More Results feature would show up across mobile phones.

Google mentioned how this kind of change is designed to enable search companies to serve results at a faster pace across different searches, instead of the usual automated loading results feature that users did not request.
The company also mentioned how such changes were designed to ensure users get faster search results across different searches, instead of continuous result loading for searches that were never requested to begin with.

So if you happen to be on page two while searching through your desktop, you might see fewer clicks across a particular website. It all depends on whether or not the searcher scrolls and clicks to the next page or if they don’t. Also, this could affect data seen on the Search Console as many searchers attend to this feature than the Next feature.
