If my site regained rich snippets review stars back, it lost them after a while, does that mean from the quality algorithms, all the algorithms think that the site is awesome?
If my site regained rich snippets review stars back, it lost them after a while, does that mean from the quality algorithms, all the algorithms think that the site is awesome? Or can it still be that the site is hit by Panda or other quality algorithms despite the fact that it has regained rich snippets?”
JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):
Yes.It doesn’t really mean that your website can’t be affected by any of our other algorithms.Essentially, for rich snippets, we do take into account the quality of the website to some extent.But we also take into account whether or not these snippets are set up correctly,if they are complying with our policies, all of that.So that’s something where just because we’re showing rich snippets doesn’t mean that we think this website is above everything else and fantastic and perfect.There can still be parts of the website where our algorithms, or some of our algorithms,are thinking, ah, this is maybe not so perfect.So it sounds like you’re on the right track,but I wouldn’t lay back and say, oh,I don’t have to do anything anymore with my website,it’s perfect the way it is, I’d continue working on this.This is something that, in general, all websites are kind of dynamic, and they keep living. So you can’t just stop working on it.
