Google Answers If Different Content Based On Country Affects SEO

March 23, 2024

Google’s John Mueller answered a question on Reddit about whether showing different content based on IP address of the site visitor affected SEO. How Google Classifies Side BannerOne of the questions that went unanswered was about how Google classifies the “placement” by which I assume the person means the content located in the sidebar. We know that Google identifies the different sections of a webpage and one example is provided in an interview with Google’s Martin Splitt. Google then identifies where the main content of the page is and summarizes it into what he called the Centerpiece Annotation. Cloaking therefore is showing different content specifically for Google and everyone else.
