Apr 24, 2019 • 8:21 am | Comments (3) by twitter

Google's John Mueller said it is best to disavow all the possible places the link may be pointing to, even if you redirect one URL to another and someone is linking to the original URL.

Yesterday I covered at Search Engine Land that the image search box is showing up way more often in Google's web results than previously.
