Computer Says No

This is a somewhat funny conversation between an SEO and John Mueller from Google. The SEO wants a quick and automated way (maybe via the API) to check 1.5 million domains for any manual actions specific to links. John said "our systems aren't designed for that, sorry." But the story does not end there.

Here are the first set of tweets:

John then asked him why and he basically wants to redirect the links if the domains are not penalized.

The conversation ended there.

Google's computers say no.

Pretty funny conversation, I think.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
