Google: WordPress-based websites do not benefit in rankings
There is a belief among foreign webmasters that websites built on WordPress receive some advantage in Google rankings. Yesterday it became clear that this is just another myth.
The question on the subject was given to search spokesman, John Mueller on Twitter. He said the following: «WordPress is a perfect for content management system, and it works well in the search. However, our algorithms are not taken into account in the ranking of such factors as the CMS, on the basis of which the works."
According to W3Techs by November 2015, every fourth website on the Internet is powered by WordPress.
Google has updated a report on the AMP errors in Search Console
Google has updated the bug report on AMP-pages in Search Console. This was reported by Data Anomalies in the Help Center service.
The reason why it was updated was the introduction of "scanning process" feature. "You can follow the changes to the AMP data due to a change in the scanning process," – the page states.
The Search Engine Roundtable editor, Barry Schwartz shared a screenshot of the updated report:
It should be recalled that the report on the rapid mobile pages in Search Console appeared in January this year. The developers have updated the report, improving categorization errors in May this year. It also has more information available about the specific problems identified at the AMP-page scanning.
The micro markup errors on AMP-pages have been transferred into the category of notes. From now on they do not appear in the report for accelerated pages in the Search Console.
Google needs external links to improve the quality of search results
Recently Google’s representative Gary Illyes confirmed that search engines need external links to ensure high-quality results.
The former head of department of Google against the web spam, Matt Cutts, said in 2014 that the failure of the accounting reference quality of the search results is getting worse. A year later, Gary Ilsh confirmed his words.
Internet Marketing consultant, Don Anderson decided to clarify what links he meant: internal or external. Illyes replied:
"I referred to external links. To some extent they touch the popularity of a resource, and approval from others. "
