Google: SEOs Don’t Manipulate Google They Manipulate Web SitesSometimes Google’s John Mueller has these one liners that I just want to share with the SEO community. He said on Twitter “SEOs don’t manipulate Google, they manipulate websites.” Of course, the Google guidelines mention bad players manipulating the Google search results but here John is being nice and explaining SEOs help web sites in search.
Google Looking To Speed Up Crawl To Render Time But…As you know, it can take weeks from the time Google crawls some pages to fully render them. Google’s John Mueller said on Twitter Google is working on ways to “getting crawling & rendering closer together.” He added that this is still a “looong way off” from happening but Google is working on it.
Google Images Related Searches Tests Icons & ImagesGoogle is testing showing images or icons in the Image Search related searches section.
