Matt Cutts! 410 vs. 404


Does Google treat 404 and 410 status codes differently

The latest from yesterday’s news Google’s head of search spam Matt Cutts put out a new webmaster help video comes from San Francisco, California on April 15, 2014.

And the questioned is mentioned below …

Does Google do anything different when encountering a 404 versus a 410?

See the (short) video …

404 (Not Found): The crawler looks for 24 hours again, before the page is marked as failed and thus thrown out of the primary index.

410 (Gone): The crawler marks the page as it was defective because the webmaster obviously knows what he’s doing. (Because 410 is only rarely and then intentionally used)

The crawler will look in both cases every now and then, if the page is accessible again. Therefore, it is only a very slight difference, for normal Webmaster insignificant and imperceptible.

Bottom Line

The difference is only important if you want to optimize a website badass who has a lot changing content. With 410 discarded content will be removed quickly from the index, ie exactly 24 hours earlier. They make room for new content more quickly. This really is hardly important, unless a site is running on the edge of their crawl and index budgets.

The latest from yesterday’s news Google’s head of search spam Matt Cutts put out a new webmaster help video comes from BlueBumbleBee, Colchester, UK on Feb 19, 2014.

And the questioned is mentioned below …

does the big G have a version of the search engine that totally excludes any backlink relevance? I’m wondering what search would look like and am curious to try it out.

See the (short) video …

Video Transcription

“We don’t have a version like that that is exposed to the public, but we have run experiments like that internally, and the quality looks much, much worse, It turns out backlinks, even though there’s some noise, and certainly a lot of spam, for the most part are still a really, really big win in terms of quality for search results.”

“We’ve played around with the idea of turning off backlink relevance, and at least for now, backlink relevance still really helps in terms of making sure we return the best, most relevant, most topical set of search results.”

Checked with reference to the documents mentioned below…

Bottom Line

The conclusion is that in a short time outside the link building is still an important ranking factors and can not be removed. Before Alexander Sadovsky Head Of Web Search – Yandex, said the they will no longer count links as a ranking factor

How to Use The Google Disavow Tools to Keep Your Site Up-To-Date: An Overview


The Google Disavow Tool was introduced on Tuesday, October 16, 2012. By this tool which allow the webmasters to create a text file containing Url’s which they deem harming their Google rankings and it allows webmaster to upload this file containing these Url’s so that Google can remove them from your back-link profile and also take those suggestion within that file into consideration for when they rank the keywords your website maybe targeting.

You will find the links you need by proceeding to Google Webmaster Tools and choose your site:

webmaster-tools-select-your-site

Select Traffic > Links to Your Website

webmaster-tools-links-to-your-site

Select Traffic > Links to Your Site > More

webmaster-tools-links-to-your-site-more

Select “Download Latest Links”

Export to .CSV or Google Docs

Now some of them may you know jump at you as to, you know what, I didn’t create this backlink and it is definitely not form related theme or niche, and it is spam. Meaning, let’s say you’ve got and online business that’s focused in selling’s kids toys for example, and if you got backlinks you know plenty of them, and you didn’t create, and it comes from perhaps adult sites, and surely we can then perhaps say that’s a spam ok, that’s a spam link coming pointing back to your website, which surely will hurt your Google Ranking. But please take Google advice as to be very cautious, when you start creating this file and suggesting Urls because there are many factors that go into determining spam as far as backlink and websites and this stuff is concerned, so a lot of thought must be given before you start using this tool.

Now the text file that you should create simply you can name it anything you want as long as you have the file extension dot text. So that you do is simply determine the backlinks which you deem and you are hundred percent sites its spam. Once you that, the text file are very simple open your notepad up and simply create it.

Now if you put a hash tag and whatever comes afterwards on that line is considered as a comment. Therefore that is ignored for the tool itself, but surely it’s good for your own reference but also people who will see that file, people form Google when they look at that they say hmm. You know what there a comment there is for us to read further information.

Because Google wants to make their own life easy because they know a lot of people will be creating file and sending it to them. And if they made a promise and if they made a tool available, then they have to take care of that side, because they are in customer business.

Video – Matt Cutts On What Are The Most Common Mistakes You See From People Using The “Disavow Links” Tool?

Therefore they want you to take the actions first, most often that may resolve the issue. But if not, then this tool for it. And the keywords there domain colon and whatever domain that you have identified as spam, so if you were to you know use this option and this keywords, domain colon and whatever the URL, that basically saying ok you know what, I got one thousand links coming from this spam website and I want every single one of them to be ignore including the deeper links, so the whole domain will be ignored here. And on this example here, you can if you choose select individual pages from a specific domain, so you can choose that option as well, so it gives you and ability to you know if you got one thousand links creating a file with one thousand links on it is not smart, because if you around say you know what I got one thousand links coming from this particular domain, then perhaps you know disallowing the whole domain entirely is a better option.

Google Disavow Tool

So, but before you head out to this link to suggest that file to Google Disavow Tool, please bear in mind that this tool is like a loaded gun given to a child, meaning, not everyone will be able to determine what a backlinks whit no value is, there is a lot of webmaster out there, as you can see, there is comment that I got from Google blog itself, it’s saying thank you Google, for making this great Disavow Tool available for us. Because now we can disavow links coming from some articles websites and so on. You know something it may be easy to determine a spam link, but if it’s coming from like what I said, like adult site to website that who sells kids, surely there is major conflict there, so therefore anyone can say, you know what, I don’t really wan backlinks coming from adult site when I’m selling kids and so on.

But when we start looking at this example, you know when I look at it, I know for affect there is misinformation here. And I know in my heart whoever wrote this comment, is making a fatal mistake when they use this tool, because especially when it comes to article, you know if you created articles that has value to your created articles that has value to your potential customer, and if some article directory took the time to publish that article on their site that may not be spam.

Now if you know in your heart of hearts and if you worked with seo services provider who didn’t follow Google Guidelines, and if they turned around created articles that is spammy, and has no customer value to the reader, then this example may be ok.

Bottom Line

But what I’m saying is it takes a lot of ranking factors in determining spam, there are so many factors actually, and so it’s not easy for the untrained eye to determine what backlink with no vale in this example is. A lot of people who go to official blog of Google and see stuff like that, they may turn around and use tool at their will. So be very very very thoughtful, get another opinions and who follows Google Guidelines and understand this stuff, that’s my best advice to you.

Video: Matt Cutts On Why Does a New Page Ranking Change Over Time?


Matt Cutts, head of Google Webspam team, has just released another Webmaster Help Video on youtube explaining that in some case. Search engine has a problem figuring out the original sources of a specific user queries and a video that really helps to explain why this may be happening to your content.

When we create a new landing page with quality content, Google ranks that page on the top 30-50 for targeted keywords. Then why does the rank get decreased for the next 2 to 3 weeks? If pages didn’t have required quality, then why did it get ranked in the first week?

Here’s the video

Conclusion – I am sure that Google is taking the author into account along with the content, back-links, and keywords. My prediction is that good consistent content will continue to be rewarded.

I covered this on Google Webmaster Central Blog on Tuesday and then posted it Google+. Checked with reference to the documents mentioned below…
