The Google Webmaster Central blog documented five new Google Group posts, based on the Popular Picks thread, asking webmasters for questions they want answered. So Google answered five of the most popular questions.
The answers are on image search ranking, Sitelinks, reconsideration requests, redirects and communication. I am not going to go through each with my analysis, because I already did that at the Search Engine Roundtable.
Here are my analysis posts at the Search Engine Roundtable on each thread:
- Google Answers: Why Are My Images Missing From Google? related to image search ranking.
- When Should I Submit a Reinclusion Request to Google? related to reconsideration requests.
- 2008 Guide to Google & Webmaster Communication related to how Google sends you messages.
- Using Redirects to Move Your Site to a New Domain related to the redirects thread.
- Why Don’t My Sitelinks on Google.com Match My Webmaster Tools Sitelinks? related to the Sitemaps thread, which I found to be the most interesting information.
