Welcome again to another week of SEO news. Has your week been treating you well? Do let me know in the comments below. Let’s get straight into our list of news this week.
Google’s John Mueller was asked on Twitter about link juices for inbound and outbound links.
His response to the Twitter user was far from satisfactory. He said that anything that talks about “link juices” should be ignored, and webmasters should instead focus on making awesome websites and content.
This seems contradictory to Google’s best practices which state that linking is good for both users and Google.
Recently, there has been a spike in Google Business Profiles being suspended for an absolute reason. According to local SEO forums, business owners are experiencing having their profiles suspended after making minor changes such as business hours or main categories.
Here are some examples:
The increase in Google Business Profile suspensions can also be seen through the increase in searches for the keyword ‘Google Business Suspension,” as seen below.
Has your business profile been affected?
Celebrity Net Worth asked Danny Sullivan, Google’s Search Liaison person, about one of its original content ‘r kelly net worth’ which seems to have been outranked by content regurgitators after the September update.
This doesn’t seem right, does it?
Well, in response, Danny Sullivan said that where your content has been duplicated by someone else, these are the things you should do:
The solution that is proposed by Danny just shows that Google does not have a solution to duplicate content. The ecosystem created by Google seems to not incentivize original content but duplicate content instead.
What do you think about this week’s news? Do you think there is more that should be done by Google on duplicate content? Do you have solution? Do let me know in the comments below. See you next week!
