How is an on-site assessment of the whole quality triggered?

How is an on-site assessment of the whole quality triggered?

Google’s John Mueller answered the question of how to get Google to perform an on-site quality assessment. Google’s Mueller discussed how Google’s extensive on-site evaluation process works.

How do I tell Google that site quality is needed?

The person who asked the question gave examples of when an on-site quality assessment was needed and asked how publishers could tell Google that major changes have taken place that require such an evaluation.

So instead of passively waiting for Google to crawl a site and encounter a major change during a regular crawl and indexing, the person asking the question wanted to know how they could report that there is made a major change and set in motion a reassessment of the site.

This is the question that was asked:

“What are some things that a webmaster can do to trigger a re-evaluation of the entire site from a quality standpoint.

Like when you change domains, or when does Google say okay … let’s try to gather new signals and see if the site is better from a quality point of view. ”

No technical way to trigger a reassessment

Mueller first said there is nothing on the webmaster site to trigger an on-site reassessment, and he said it was usually not necessary because site changes are constantly updated in the index.

John Mueller offered his answer:

“I do not think there is anything technical you can do to trigger a reassessment.

And usually it is not necessary either, because our systems essentially reassess all the time.

They look at the content we found for a site, and over time, when we see that change, we take it into account.

So it is not something where you have to do something manually to trigger it. ”

Major site changes require a reassessment

Mueller then outlined scenarios where a major quality evaluation may be needed.

The one time we need to reconsider how the site works is if the site makes a serious restructuring of its site, where it changes many of the URLs, and all the internal links change, where you might move from one CMS to another. CMS, and everything changes and looks different.

So from a quality point of view or from a technical point of view, we can not just keep the old understanding of the site, of the pages, because everything is different now.

So we have to reconsider it all.

But it is also not something that is triggered by something specific, but rather it is just good, many things have changed on the site, and even to gradually keep up, we have to make many step-by-step changes to re-evaluate it. ”

Should the Google Search Console offer a re-evaluation tool?

There are times when publishers make major changes to a site, and it can be helpful for Google, site visitors, and the publisher if there was a way to trigger a major revaluation if the entire site has undergone an abrupt change.

Typical situations can be when a site changes domains, changes a CMS, site structure, or a major content quality change.

It may not have to be a direct type of tool, but rather as a raised hand to signal to Google that something bigger has happened.

Google may argue that it is not necessary, but it may make some publishers feel more confident if the opportunity to pass on the feedback was there.
