Google: No Plans Or Desire To Remove The Site Command

On the heels of the link operator being killed off by Google, some SEOs are worried that Google will drop the site operator/command. The site operator lets you quickly do a site only search, such as site:www.domain.com [keyword here] and it will search that site only for that keyword.

While we know the site command doesn't give an accurate page index count, we are told to use the Google Search Console reports for that, it is still useful for within site searches.

Google's Gary Illyes said on Twitter that they have "no such plans" to drop the site command and added that "some of us would fight against it pretty hard if we had."

That is a pretty strong message that Google is not ditching the site command, don't you think?
