John Mueller Talks Redirects

In a recent Google+ post, Google Webmaster Trends Analyst John Mueller provided readers with a guide on how Google treats different types of redirects including 301s, 302s, 307s etc.

In his post, he covers important topics like long redirect chains, if 302s pass link equity and more. I've recapped his post and added in some additional thoughts of my own.

More on the Next Penguin Update

The last major update to Penguin was on October 17, 2014, nearly a year-and-a-half ago at this writing. Since that update, Google spokespersons have said that with the next update, Penguin would become “real time.”

So when will the next update happen?

Google's Gary Illyes says "the team has been running experiments with the update and will “not launch something we are not happy with.”

My guess is that we won't see the next update for months.

Considering Google AMP for SEO?

Do you have questions about Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages Project (AMP)? If so, this post from +Robert Ramirez & +Virginia Nussey is for you.

Robert and Virginia take readers through the what and why of AMP & do a great job of explaining what type of publishers can actually benefit from implementation.

AMP in its current form neuters a site of engagement and interactive site elements, including forms and shopping carts. Many sites have become dependent upon the engagement objects and features that are stripped out for AMP.


Google is pushing Accelerated Mobile Pages hard right now. AMP is not the speed solution for every business. Read who AMP is for and the limitations it poses to other businesses.

Review Stars Dropping in Google Organic

According to MozCast data, there's been a consistent trend of review stars dropping from search results.

However, Dr. Pete observed that review stars appear to be increasing in the local "snack packs"

It will be interesting to see how the change affects the CTR of larger publishers like Yelp. 
There has been a trend in the past couple of days where review stars have been dropping by a fairly large percent in the past couple of days. Here we see the first drop on Mozcast. As you can see, the review stars dropped by 14.5%. But the following day, Mozcast’s update on Thursday morning, …

Google RankBrain as a Ranking Factor

Late last year, Google reps. announced a significant addition to their ranking algorithm called RankBrain.

In this post, +Mark Traphagen discusses this new machine learning technology, and how it promises to improve the way Google evaluates queries and delivers results.

Google said RankBrain is now the “third most important ranking factor.” That makes it one of the most significant updates to Google Search since it was invented by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in their Stanford University dorm room. The first and second most important factors remain backlinks to your site and the quality and relevancy of your content.
