Thomas Stinson commented on Gary Illyes: We Are Google Spokespersons - It's Our Job

It takes a lot of effort, patience and kindness to handle online inquiries and help people with their issues. I used to do online support and now I have my own business in SEO. I would say 50% of the people you try to help have harsh criticism for everything you have to say. It's a job just to stay nice to the people who came to you for help in the first place when they get haughty on you, lol.

Tracey Brown commented on Google Suggests The Next Penguin Update May Be The Last

There appears to be a slow role-out by Google. It looks like an update of sorts. I noticed this slow downtrend for the past 3 weeks but 2 days ago whatever is being rolled out is picking up speed. This across 19 different websites which I run. Anyone else because this is going to be a very bad update by the looks of it?

Jim commented on Google Explains Why Their Customer Service Sucks

Well hire 60,000 people. I don't see the issue........ Google made 67.39 billion in 2015. To hire 60,000 people would cost 2 billion. Again i ask what is the problem again?

Soon organic search result will vanish. Those Advertisers who will pay to Google high they will come on the top in SERP.

Did he explain to you why your PMD with little more than a few footer links to it isn't ranking? Clearly Google search is broken if that isn't number one for everything you want it to be.

Don't be a crybaby commented on Gary Illyes: We Are Google Spokespersons - It's Our Job

I know Mueller has escalated at least 3 or 4 just from the hangouts I saw which resulted in Google discovering a problem on their end. The majority of the questions those men receive are not something they can escalate. Most of the people asking are rude arrogant people who want Google to bend the rules for them, or they simply refuse to accept the answers that are given. When you present them with something you think is a problem but it isn't really what you thought it was, they aren't going to kiss your ass and pretend it is just to humor you. Especially not when you come into the conversation with the obvious preconception that Google is evil and is trying to kill people. Cutts actually gave great advice, sometimes without anyone asking for it.

Did you actually listen to what he told you or did you just think he was wrong and ignore it? I've seen what happens when people try to tell you something you don't want to hear.

It's going well. John has politely gone silent after finding that the zombie issue is imaginary.

Rajesh Kumar commented on Google: Best To Keep Redirects Indefinitely But You Can Remove Them After Google Indexes Them

@methode If we remove the redirection page from the server (old page) no value will pass on and they will loose old page backlinks and referral traffic also if any.

Matthew Forzan commented on Google: Best To Keep Redirects Indefinitely But You Can Remove Them After Google Indexes Them

100%! I don't see a need to remove them, ever. Even when changing servers/systems this would be part of the data that you'd migrate. Regardless of whether Google has indexed your "new" pages, there still may be reference to old URLs on other websites that you'd want to ensure a positive user-experience for anyone that may find them. Do it once, do it right!

Kat Halushka commented on Google Asks Searches To Set Home & Work Address On Some Searches

Looks like it still needs some work. Our office is in the new area and Google simply keeps asking this same question over and over again without errors or results.

"htaccess file is big. Lots of old pages 301 to new. How long do you keep a 301 before safely deleting it " "some of these pages still have inbound links from multiple sources"

Simon commented on Gary Illyes: We Are Google Spokespersons - It's Our Job

I don't know what that means. There are plenty of people who ask John specific questions and get satisfactory answers. So, again, would you rather they weren't there at all, i.e. no hangouts, no twitter, no forum answers, etc?

I performed this search on Desktop , Google is tracing My Desktop Computer MAC Address and monitoring my search behavior, and I think after few local searches with the help of AI, Google will understand that what I am doing, where I was before last hour, what I will tonight party, or dinner and etc .... !

Simon commented on Google Suggests The Next Penguin Update May Be The Last

Hopefully not and sorry for not replying sooner. The reason I'm asking these questions is that the 'anyone hit by Penguin is a spammer so fuck them' argument seems to be getting a fair bit of use on SER. I'd have thought that any reputable SEO would support the argument that sites deserve a real chance to recover (or they wouldn't work on them), and be very keen for Google to release Penguin in order to validate their work to their clients. But I don't see many SEOs shouting out for it. Perhaps also for fear they'll be shouted down by the trolls.
