Google Search Console to Notify Site Owners of Unclear Subscription Pages

Google Chrome on the Pixel 2 XL

Google Chrome on the Pixel 2 XL

Since Google has a significant power over the internet - website owners should start clearing up their site in order to prevent any bad marking.

"That's why starting from Chrome 71 (December 2018), Chrome will show a warning before these pages, so that users can make informed decisions when signing up to mobile-based subscription services. Users will be offered the choice to proceed to the page or go back if they were unaware that they were entering a billing page".

That is, conditions and prices should be clearly itemized and communicated to the user and not hidden by the method of placement of the gray text on a light background or in small print somewhere in the end of the page. Inform users on what actions they will be charged for, before being charged. This fee gets attached to your mobile phone bill, so it can be easy to miss - and hard to get your money back if you do. Don't hide or obfuscate crucial billing information.

One, "Is the billing information visible and obvious to users?" And three, "Is the fee structure easily understandable?" For the Safe Browsing category, you can also see normal warning pages that are shown in Chrome for mobile and desktop as well as the quieter warnings that will be displayed by Android apps using WebView. It is said that this browser will block all the ads popping up over a website give that it counts as "Abusive Experience".

These are the kind of websites that ask for users' phone numbers, and then they sign you up without your knowledge for a mobile subscription that is billed via the carrier of users. The search giant will also be notifying the website admins if it witnesses any such warnings.

Just like most of these warnings, webmasters who've registered their sites via the Google Search Console service can visit their dashboards and see if the mobile subscription forms on their sites trigger this warning. Chrome 71 is the next version of this browser owned by Google.
