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."

Google my business has simplified the branch data editing
Google My Business has implemented another option to performing mass changes to the branch data by using the service editor.
What do you need for this:
• Sign in to Google My Business.
• Locate the desired branches. For this use the search function in the menu "All addresses" in the upper left corner of the page.
• To change one branch, just click on it. To edit multiple locations, use the checkboxes and click the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the page.
• Click on the field you want to edit. If any data has been updated by Google, you'll see them next to their information.
• Make the necessary changes in the window that appears.
• Click "Apply" button.
This method can be used when a company is running more than 10 subsidiaries.
It should be recalled that Google My Business has facilitated the branch attribute management last month. From now on they can be changed by using the bulk upload spreadsheet data.
