Google's John Mueller said that the Google quality raters guidelines are "not a collection of ranking tips." He said the quality raters guidelines "can be useful" to think about but again, they are not just a list of ranking tips.

John wrote this on Twitter "My recommendation would be to read the quality raters guidelines. It's not a collection of ranking tips, but it can be useful in thinking about topics like these." This was in response to some questions about sticking to a specific topic on the site.

Here are those tweets:

So I took the tweet a bit out of context, intentionally, but it is true - the quality raters guidelines are not a collection of ranking tips from Google.
