Two questions regarding recent shows...
1) Google "automatically" removing bad referral sites.
Is this actually being done automatically or is that the "Bot filtering" checkbox I see in the "Admin > View > View Settings" area in GA?
Bot Filtering: Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders
not sure if that is just filtering the bots or if that is aimed at referrer traffic
2) Google Search Console - Multiple Language sites in sub-directories...
Believe +John Carcutt
may have mentioned setting up separate GSC accounts for Href Lang for each directory (ie. domain.com/us
, etc) Is that possible? Thought GSC properties could only be setup for sub domains / domains - not necessarily sub-directories. We have a massive site that is translated in 12 languages and recently moved them all from sub-domains into sub-directories and created new views in GA for each. Would love to be able to set preferred country in GSC; but am hoping that adding the href lang to each language will do the trick. Any experience with this?
As always, love the shows and love the community out here! Keep up the great work!
