Changed My Mind

In December 2017, Google told us to avoid using Google Tag Manager for SEO experiments or SEO solutions. In fact, it was not supported with Google's testing tools but now Google may have changed their minds...

A new article from SEMRush named How to Add FAQ Schema to Any Page Using Google Tag Manager goes through the steps on how to add FAQ schema to your pages using Google Tag Manager. When Cindy Krum asked Google's John Mueller about this on Twitter, John said "Reading the linked article, it seems quite complete and balanced - I think it's fine." He even added "Happy to see more sites trying out new structured data types!"

Here are those tweets:

I guess as time goes on, people can change their minds. If anything, this shows - test, test, test and don't just listen to advice from Google or posts here that give you advice from Google. :)
