    it'll be a great asset to have these short quasi-official snippets that i can send to my clients when they once again send me "seo reports" they get from "website optimizers" who still live in the past and need this kind of stuff debunked

    1. Are keywords still relevant to Google?

    The dilemma for using Chinese in URL is that it's easier for user to recognize what's the page is about, while difficult for them to share the link. Any insights on this?

    I have read all the documentation possible. Starting from




    and also


    The question is simple.

    I have premium content that will be available to users only for a fee. The pages will then be generated with the title, a small excerpt of the article and then a paywall for subscription or login.

    It is possible to show Google the entire content of the premium page without it being considered as cloaking?

    In the guidelines there is "If you want Google to crawl and index your entire page, including the paywalled sections, make sure Googlebot, and Googlebot-News if applicable, can access your page.

    " but I don't understand how to expose premium content without being penalized.
