Google Cloud Translated Website Not Indexed By Google Search


Google Cloud’s web site is having issues being indexed in Google Search, specifically the translated pages. Last week, I reported about a webmaster asking about issues with translated content not being indexed by Google. It turned out that this was someone from the Google Cloud team asking John Mueller of Google for help.

The way the Google Cloud translated pages work is that they put translated pages on a URL pattern like https://cloud.google.com/?hl=ja or https://cloud.google.com/contact?hl=de or https://cloud.google.com/?hl=es and so on. As I explained in my story from last week, you may end up confusing Google when you have “garbage” parameters trailing in your URLs, espesially when it comes to translated content parameters.

It is somewhat funny to see someone at Google ask someone else at Google for help with Google Search. The Google Cloud team, like any external SEO, posted a thread in the Google Search Central Help forums asking for help on this issue. The webmaster also went into a Google Search Central hangout with John Mueller for more advice. No, they did not call John on his landline (like he has one…) or schedule a one on one Google Meet with John – they asked for SEO help like any external SEO would. As a reminder, this has come up before and Google says they are stricter with their internal SEOs than random external SEOs.

You can read the thread at the Google Search Central Help forums about the specific issue and then watch this video embed to see how John responded to it all:

No special treatment…

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Google Product Review Updates Still Get Periodic Updates

Just a reminder, since I am seeing this question come up often. The Google product reviews update is updated periodically, just like with core updates. Google will run them every now and then as it sees fit, so far, Google confirmed five different product review updates.

Danny Sullivan of Google said this again last week on Twitter saying “It’s still a periodic refresh situation.” He referenced his old tweet that said “At the moment, there’s a periodic refresh. Unlike with core updates, we might not always post when a refresh happens given the more limited nature of content involved here. So overall, sites should consider the advice & keep working to it (true of core updates as well!).”

As you can see, Google might not confirm all runs of the product review update.

Here are the dates for the five previous Product Reviews Updates, keep in mind, number five is still rolling out.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Rosh Hashanah.
