Ok, I've set things on fire successfully, time for me to uninstall the Twitter app again! Bytes!

We're working on educating devs on (basic) SEO. There's a disconnect between the two groups at most companies I've talked to and it's hurting websites most of the time. That doesn't mean that you should misuse something though. If you have a screw, use a screwdriver, not a hammer

Alright. I'll run a study to see how people are using it. If the majority are screwing themselves with it, then I'll go ahead for approvals

Thanks for pointing that out, but i was operating websites since i was 18, i owned & ran a hosting company for SMBs, including support, i managed SEO for media outlets, and i happen to also like clean standards and clean code. But i definitely need more experience, i agree

Technically, robots.txt is for crawling. The meta tags are for indexing. During indexing they'd be applied at the same stage so there's no good reason to have both of them

This may go away. I'm cleaning up that part of the googlebot codebase nowadays and that thing sticks out like a nun in a mosh pit

That may be related to the indexing issues from last week. Sorry about that

If you're interested in the bilingual Tokyo, but you can't be there in person (like me 😭), it will be live streamed!

That's probably related to last week's Monday(s). I don't know how to explain it in a public-safe way, but it should fix itself soon

Also, to me it very much feels like it's a nuance that's very easy to miss. I'm not surprised one bit translate couldn't get it

That's because Japanese likes to torture its students: ga marks the subject, wa marks the topic. Mostly. But in this case Anna is the subject, so it should've been ga, except the topic is usually the same as the subject, and the default is wa, so i used wa... (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
