Daily Search Forum Recap: August 2, 2022

Published

on

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.


Google Search Console disabled the validate fix feature as it upgrades some of its classifications over the next few days. Google’s John Mueller said it probably makes sense to update your internal links from HTTP to HTTPS when you do a site migration. Google is working on deduplicating multiple ad listings in Local Service Ads. Rumble may gain access to some parts of Google’s secret algorithm. Google’s John Mueller has a beautiful SEO rant that I think we should all take to heart.

Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google Search Console Validate Fix For Coverage Report Not Working Right Now

    Yesterday afternoon Google temporarily disabled the ability to validate fixes for issues in the coverage report. This is related to some “minor updates” the Google Search Console is adding to those coverage reports over “the next few days.”
  • John Mueller Beautiful SEO Rant On Doing Versus Reading

    I know some of you may not like it and may think I am some sort of suck-up for covering this but there is so much truth and beauty to John Mueller’s recent SEO rant. He said, “maybe you should stop reading SEO blogs and instead do something useful for your site & its users?”
  • Legal Ruling May Allow Rumble To See Some Of Google’s Secret Ranking Algorithms

    Glenn Greenwald reported that a “federal district court in California on Friday denied Google’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit alleging that the Silicon Valley giant is violating federal antitrust laws by preventing fair competition against its YouTube video platform.” This may result in Rumble being able to see parts of Google’s secret search ranking algorithm.

  • Google Continues To Work On Deduplicating Multiple Ad Listings After LSAs Example

    Joy Hawkins pointed out an example of Google Local Service Ads showing duplicate listings for the same law firm for the same query. Google has policies against that and asked if those policies are effective, to which Google’s Ad Liaison said yes, and they continue to work to improve with those efforts.
  • Google: Update Internal Links From HTTP To HTTPS But…

    If you are on an HTTP site and you decide to migrate the site to HTTPS, it is common practice to update all of your internal links from the HTTP URL format to the HTTPS URL format. Google’s John Mueller was asked about this on Reddit and he said “I’d always try to fix internal links, it just makes things cleaner, and is under your own control. I doubt it would have any visible effect though.”
  • Rare Google Dublin Rooftop Outdoors Lunch

    I don’t think I’ve seen any Googlers eating lunch on the rooftop of the Google Dublin office. I think that is what this is a photo of on Instagram. It was tagged as at Google Dublin and she wrote “Sun

Google Blasts Agencies That Sell Links Building & Disavow Link Services

Published

Google Hacker Red

John Mueller of Google blasted SEO or marketing agencies that sell both link-building services and disavow link services. He said on Twitter, “These agencies (both those creating, and those disavowing) are just making stuff up, and cashing in from those who don’t know better.”

John added that its “all made up and irrelevant.”

Also, when asked if they should disavow links, John replied yesterday on Twitter, “Don’t waste your time on it; do things that build up your site instead.”

Here is the chain of tweets, so you see the context that John is replying to.

Ryan Jones does his rant:

Here is the chain that follows:

Pretty strong words from John, don’t you think?

Here is the second part:

One note:

Just yesterday we covered the topic of disavowing spammy porn links and also added how Google has downplays disavowing links for a while. John said in that in that SEO office hours help video yesterday, “That said, this will not position your site as it was before, but it can help our algorithms to recognize that they can trust your site again, giving you a chance to work up from there.” I don’t think he meant that fully based on what he said yesterday and previously?

But this is pretty strong language for not bothering with the disavow file.

Published

Gary Illyes of Google said in the Google SEO office-hours from yesterday that verifying your website in Google Search Console won’t impact your Google Search indexing or ranking whatsoever.

Gary said, “Having your site verified in Search Console or changing the verification code and method has no effect on indexing or ranking whatsoever.”

John Mueller of Google previously said that Search Console verification doesn’t help with crawling either.

Gary added later that Search Console gives you data and analytics that can help you make improvements to your site to help you rank better in Google Search potentially. “You can use the data that Search Console gives you to improve your site and thus potentially do better in Search with your site, but otherwise has no effect on search whatsoever,” he added.
