Google Says Don't Change URLs and Change Them Back For SEO Testing

Google’s John Mueller said on Twitter he would recommend again changing URLs and then changing them back, and repeating that, for SEO reasons. The individual wanted to do that for SEO testing but generally, with SEO, changing URLs, is not a recommended strategy unless you are fixing an issue of some sorts.

One you start changing URLs, that new URL has to get all of its own new signals. Of course, you can redirect the old URL to the new URL, but if you are just changing the URL to test things, and then plan to change it back, that is probably a bad idea.

John said on Twitter “I’d avoid temporarily changing URLs and changing them back, so if you could show the new page on the current URL, that would probably be both easier for search, and a clearer signal for you in terms of how search would respond (removes the page-move messiness).”

Aurora Morales Recording Again in A Real Google Studio

Aurora Morales of Google has done a nice number of videos for Google, specifically on the publisher monetization front. She did a nice number of those while at home since COVID. She now said she is back for the first time in a real Google studio recording.

She wrote on Twitter “Filming at an actual studio again (and not remotely from my apartment) has felt truly amazing. More policy video content coming.”

This is good to see – I was in one of these studios and they are the real deal.
