Google’s John Mueller Beautiful SEO Rant

Published

on

Google Changes Format Of SEO Office Hours

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?”

Let me first share the thread of tweets from John, so you can all read it:

In short, John is saying you should stop looking for step-by-step instructions on how to rank better. It just doesn’t work that way anymore and reading someone else’s blog to get those steps is not going to help you get there. Instead, focus your efforts on really doing something useful for your users on your site.

Sure, this site is an SEO blog and I want you to read it. But truth is, I do not give much tactical SEO advice here. I cover news, what is changing, what is trending and what the search community is talking about. I am not giving you the top 10 SEO tips to gain new links, or the top 14 ways to formulate your title tags. I tell you what is changing in search and you then come up with your own ideas on how to tactically leverage that.

I think the readers here are a special bread – they are mostly advanced SEOs, doing SEO for years, have had lots of successes and also have battle scares from Google penalties and algorithm adjustments. They come here to learn about what is new, where Google is headed and formulate their own useful and tactical strategies to succeed in SEO.

I do love John’s rant and I think reading it will make us all better at coming up with better SEO strategies that we can implement in a tactical way on our own sites.

Google Does Not Rotate Its Search Index

Published

on

Here is a bizarre question that was asked on the Google office hours video asking if Google rotates its index. The question kind of makes sense, because the SEO who asked said on one day they see their page indexed, the next it is gone, then it comes back – is there an index rotation?

The answer is no, Google does not rotate its index.

Here was the question “Is it true that Google rotates indexed pages? Because the site I’m working on is rotating on indexed pages. Like for example, page A is indexed on Monday through Thursday, but not indexed Friday through Sunday.”

Lizzi from Google said “Okay. So the answer is real quick. No, this is not true. We are not rotating the index based off of days of the week.”

They don’t rotate the index based off of anything, even day of week actually.

This was asked at the 9:56 mark:
