Evergreen Googlebot (Barry Schwartz with Jason Barnard)

Barry Schwartz with Jason Barnard at SMX London 2019

Barry Schwartz talks with Jason Barnard about Google and Evergreen Googlebot.

An episode that is fresh news – ironically about evergreen Googlebot 🙂 Its implications for crawling, Javascript rendering. A bit of a chat about what the User Agent is likely to be. Martin Splitt gets a mention for his mythbusting videos. Then onto Google Discover and content / ads on their homepage taking Google away from ‘the do-no-evil Google way’. And a bit of a chat about the ‘disappearing spam team’. Barry beautifully catches me out with my own comment about being careful not to generalising from a specific example. We end with Larry Page setting himself up for a fall back in 1999. Recorded at SMX London 21 May 2019.
