  1. I installed AMP on three websites and reached the speed of Google 96/99. Not a single mistake. Nothing happened. I compared this for a month. This has not affected in any way. Google does not take this into account, so do not work and do not hope. wasted time and effort

  2. Thank you for your new update as an early Christmas gift. My best-earning site dropped almost by 50% because I was always a white hat. My competition that is 30 times bigger, low quality, and buy links grew. Great job.

  3. When I add this new plugin "Site Kit" and connect to Google analytics, can I deactivate the other plugin of connecting the analytics, such as "Google Analytics Dashboard for WP"?

  4. I wish there was a good tut video on setting up tag manager on WP. I have the tag manager chrome extension helper, and it has 3 icon faces, 1 green smiley face. And 2 blue icon faces with crooked mouths

  5. Do Googler's have OCD ? They seem to rehash the same content over and over again ! There is nothing new about any of this news ! Would it not be more useful to tell webmasters about new things such as the SameSite cookie update which is going to go live in feb 2020 for example.

    Site Kit was announced DECEMBER 6, 2018 (It's now nov 2019). Check this link: https://sitekit.withgoogle.com/news/introducing-site-kit-by-google-for-wordpress/
    Those meta-tags back in Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
    Flash no more back in Monday, October 28, 2019.

    Google webmasters the land of low quality content.

  6. Hey John & G Console Team, i would like to ask, if there any improvements for image management will happen in the near future? I'm a bit struggling with getting proper control and insights over image indexation, image crawls, testing whether an image(url) is valid and reachable by crawlers, etc. Did i miss something, or where can i find these controls? Cheers, W

  7. I love these, but moreso I love how John only ever looked at the paper in front of him when he said his name, as if the paper just reads JOHN MUELLER. Intentional or not I laughed!
