Sorry to hear, Taylor! It's painful to be the outsider when doing the right thing, but sometimes people still come around in the end. Hang in there.

While wild speculation is fun, I'm sometimes worried that folks read more into it... Back in the early days, I'd track how my test sites got indexed, it was weird to see some get more, some less indexed. Looking now, they still fluctuate in indexing. Complex systems are weird :).

FWIW I don't see crawling or indexing slowing down overall, these systems are super-fast. Also, the "not everything gets indexed" has always been the case, there are a lot of things that would never show up in search. IMO it's mostly that SC makes it easier to find these now :).

I don't see a problem with that - some sites use multiple CMSs. Google doesn't do anything special by CMS type. I'd just watch out for the usual technical issues when changing backends, but that's unrelated to SEO :). Good luck!

I had to figure out how this worked, so πŸ‘‰ πŸ‘ˆ You can switch direction, pause, change speed, toggle smooth motion, and overlay a grid. I was staring at this for too long and got motion sickness. My own code literally made me sick πŸ€’πŸ’š so please enjoy!

If you mean you can go (back?) to making content that users don't care about, ... You might be disappointed :-)

I'd read the article I linked to, there's more there than one sentence.

It doesn't matter for Google.

In the real world, there's no notion of "it was on Google first, therefore it's the original". Copyright & content ownership are not built on Google indexing.

If it's urgent, you'd need to remove the page completely. You can't pick words that you don't want your page to rank for. (Sometimes it's worth being practical: are people really searching for the number? Does a page ranking for it mean anything to random users?)

It's more like a non-core update, if we're talking about limbs.

It doesn't make much sense for us to index copied content like that though. What's the value for the user in seeing it on your site?

We just don't crawl or index all content on the web. That's normal. A good way to encourage search engines to care is to make sure that they're missing out by not having it indexed. Make totally awesome, unique, compelling things that users ask for. Avoid rehashing other content.
