Google has given webmasters alot of feedback and guidance. Since Google is not a charity I expect that some (if not most) of this information is more for their benefit than webmasters. I have personally made some good money from information I learned from Google. I have also encountered many new webmasters who have lost money because they forgot common sense and blindly followed some of this information. Veteran webmasters are better at understanding that this information often needs to be interpreted and adjusted for each unique situation. Just because Google says something it does not mean it is 100% correct for every situation or that it is the wisest idea for your personal situation.
What Google guidance/feedback/statement/advice do you think is wrong and that webmasters should ignore? Why? Please explain yourself.
Mods Note: Many people think Google sucks, they are a monopoly, Google kills businesses, their algo is broken, they always lie, and that they are just bad people. I think that covers the more popular Google complaints so now we can keep this thread on-topic with productive posts and skip the generic complaining.
