Google: Web Site Comments Show Signals Of Site Health

Google Comments

Gary Illyes from Google posted on Twitter one of his did you know pieces saying did you know that "quality comments can be a signal of a healthy website?" Here is the tweet:

I am not sure if this is a direct dig at the comments on this web site? I mean, we do get a lot of interesting comments. I do remove pure spam comments and have spam filters. But the comments here are incredibly troll-like - but still somewhat relevant to the discussion above.

In 2014, Matt Cutts said bad grammar in comments does not hurt your rankings but comment spam does hurt or can hurt your rankings.

So "quality" is a very general term and I am not sure if what Matt said in 2014 still applies or if things have changed.

Thoughts? When commenting, make it quality. ;-P
