Google: We Don't Make Sites With Manual Actions Wait Longer For Reviews

Google's John Mueller said it is a myth that the web spam team would make a site that has sufficiently fixed a manual action wait a longer period of time. Google doesn't simply say that this site did something bad, so you have to wait. Once it is fixed, Google will reprocess that manual action.

Automate Google Search Console Detected Issues Via Email

Google's John Mueller said that right now there are no webhooks or APIs for tracking issues reported within Google Search Console. So what he recommends to do now is set up an email box that you can program a script to read those emails and feed them to your internal systems.

Can Google Detect Sarcasm?

Someone asked Google's John Mueller if Google's search algorithms can detect and then filter out sarcasm on the internet. It is an interesting question if Google can detect sarcasm or not, in fact, I see a ton of papers on the concept. But I've never seen Google talk about it (personally).

Google: We Have No Mechanism To Block Indexing Parts Of Pages

Google's John Mueller said there is currently no official "mechanism to block indexing of a part of a page."

Google Nofollow Change March 1st But Google Says Don't Expect Any Change Yet

So the big nofollow link attribute change is coming March 1st, which is this Sunday. But it seems like we shouldn't really see anything happen on March 1st, at least based on how Gary Illyes and John Mueller of Google are both saying we shouldn't see any changes on March 1st. Why?
