Gary's avatar is grumpy cat, so he's definitely more in the no.

What I'd love to see is an exploration of how voice could play a role for different kinds of businesses / publishers. In a Sci-Fi world, how would it work? (& which metrics would you want then?)

That sounds like something you'd want to avoid - being uncertain if a noindex is picked up or not can be a pretty big thing.

We generally only crawl sites from one location, so if you localize, you need to use separate URLs, and allow access to those URLs.

... EMDs (missed that, sorry) -- the main problem is really low-quality EMDs, which is a common pattern for doorway sites. Just because people search for "youtube" to try to find doesn't make the site a bad result. It also doesn't make it the automatic #1.

All TLDs are fine, they're not artificially held back, nor do they have special boosts. I'd just watch out for ccTLDs, and remember the new gTLDs are gTLDs (even .nyc or .berlin), so set geotargeting if you want.

Of course -- otherwise we would crawl the wrong website. :-) Host your content where you find it useful, the TLD doesn't really matter (other than ccTLDs, which do geotargeting).

Not necessarily -- there are lots of systems that work in parallel, changing one doesn't always mean all others have to be changed.

We don't always index all content (and word count isn't a criteria for indexing), so that can be normal.

Yeah, that can break things that need to be in the <head> for search.
