Google Search Console Will Stop Collecting Data After Inactivity

We know that Google will stop collecting data within Google Search Console when a site is not verified or removes its verification. But did you know if you do not use Search Console, you verify it but never go in to look at the reports, Google may stop collecting data for that Search Console profile?

John Mueller of Google said this on Twitter, he said “when Google sees that the data’s not being useful (nobody using it), then we do stop collecting after a while. I don’t think there’s any specific time on that though.” He said “nobody using it.” Later he explained “If it is verified and not used at all for a really long time, to me, that seems safe to pause too.” He said in his opinion, “it’s better to put the processing “budget” into things that are known to be useful.”

So Google will allocate its Search Console processing resources for those who actually use Google Search Console and not for those who do not. So make sure to login and click on some reports every month or so to be safe?

Here are those tweets:

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

New Google Rich Results Guidelines Prevent Prohibited, Regulated Or Harmful Products

Google Search has added new content guidelines to the rich results help document. These new guidelines directly disallow you to markup product or content that are widely prohibited or regulated, or that can facilitate serious harm to self or others. Google said it will simply not show rich results on such products.

Product examples include firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco, vaping products, gambling-related products and other products that can pose acute threats of physical harm.

The new guidelines were posted over here and read:

Don’t mark up content that promotes widely prohibited or regulated goods, services, or information that may facilitate serious and/or immediate or long term harm to self or others. This includes content related to firearms & weapons, recreational drugs, tobacco & vaping products and gambling-related products.

This new policy is effective already and I assume you will soon, if not already, not see rich results in Google Search for these types of products. This includes Google not showing star ratings, prices, or availability information and so on.

Google told me “this policy change will align the rich snippets feature with other Search surfaces that display product information from merchants, to help provide consistency and clarity.”

Google will not issue manual actions in Google Search Console for violation of this guidelines, Google will simply will just not show the rich results in Google Search.

Here is a screenshot from Glenn Gabe of it already going missing for sites:
