They are not necessary for many website owners and it is better to spend this time on improving the website itself, says Slagg.
Oct 08/2017 During the last video conference with webmasters Google rep called John Mueller said that Googlebot still refrains to scan HTTP.
But with more websites implementing push notification feature, Googlebot developers are on the point of adding support for HTTP in future.” It should be recalled that in April 2016, John Mueller said that the use of the HTTP / 2 protocol on the website does not directly affect the ranking in Google, but it improves the experience of users due to faster loading speed of the pages.
Therefore, if you have a change, it is recommended to move to this protocol.
The question to Mueller was the following: "Some time ago we sent a report on a spam, but still have not seen any changes. " The answer was: No, we do not check all spam reports manually.
I've got my own website, which receives about 100,000 visits a week.
I have it for 4 years already and I do not have a file named Disavow. Thus, in the case when before a website owner was engaged in buying links or using other prohibited methods of link building, then conducting an audit of the reference profile and rejecting unnatural links is necessary in order to avoid future manual sanctions.
It is important to remember that rejecting links can lead to a decrease in resource positions in the global search results, since many webmasters often reject links that actually help the website, rather than doing any harm to it.
Therefore, referential audits are needed if there were any violations in the history of the resource.
