YMYL Sites, LinkedIn And Google Search Indexing Issues
Original Air Date: July 25, 2019
Google's John Mueller talked about YMYL, specific to the health space, and mentioned that it is if you are writing about a topic on health that you are not an expert on then you are starting off already on a "shaky foundation." He said it probably makes sense for you to find experts to write or review what you wrote so that the content is "correct and it's trustworthy." He added it is content you want to feel comfortable that your friends can share with other friends. LinkedIn is adding a new feature to user profiles allowing people to list the professional services they offer to clients. This creates an opportunity for users to market their services outside of their business page and possibly connect with new prospects. The new services section in LinkedIn profiles will also be a helpful way for people to communicate exactly what it is they do for work. Just think – how many times have you had to explain to someone what an SEO does? Now you can clearly list the services you perform in your profile. Over the past few weeks or so there has been lot of rumors around why those suspensions have happened. Google has not be exactly clear about the issue but they did say they restored the suspended listings. That was not true and we waited. Now, Candour shared on Twitter a screen shot of Google My Business saying the shortnames connected bug with suspensions should be resolved soon, probably within 48 hours. The direct message reads "our engineering team has conformed that there was a technical issue connected to short names that is in profess of being fixed. If however, you are still experiencing the issue after 48 hours, please reply here with your dashboard URL."
