We all know it, but a lot of people are roaming the web and having their own opinions on the Twitters re if the information they release is accurate, some people say that they don’t have a clue what they’re talking about and that they aren’t the official spokespeople of Google. Well, you’re wrong, in fact, it’s their job to communicate this information to webmasters and to broadcast recent updates and changes that Google would like to publicly release, hence why they are a webmaster trends analyst.

Recently, a webmaster approached Gary on Twitter and asked him directly ‘i.e it might sound like you’re speaking on Google’s behalf rather than your own. Curious to know if it’s a concern or not’.

Gary replied ‘we’re spokespeople for Google search, it’s part of our job to help people with advice and escalations’.

Just like I was saying in my post regarding if page rank still matters, I’m sure the information is reliable, it’s their job, of course, spokespeople can’t be 100% all of the time, but it’s useful information.

Our thanks go out to both John and Gary.
