Good Web Sites Are Good For SEO, Says Google

Google’s John Mueller stated somewhat of an obvious statement, saying basically that building a good website is often good for SEO. He said on Twitter “A lot of good accessibility best practices are also good SEO best practices, and just generally, making a site better for users often results in indirect, overall positive effects too.”

Here are those tweets for more context:

Now, in practice, this has not always been the case. Sometimes bad websites rank well – in fact, there have been many cases historically where ugly looking sites ranked super well. I don’t think this works as well these days but back in the old days, often we saw ugly and confusing sites rank super well.

Well, yea, these are organic. John responded on Twitter saying “They’re organic results too. This is one of the reasons it’s good to dig into our ecommerce site guidance if you sell products.”

Honestly, like I said before, I am not a huge fan of these grid formatted results for products. At least, they should be in some “click to expand” feature so you can see more.
