I don't know whether it's Google's fault or Stack Exchange's fault, but I assume things working well is more important to Stack Exchange than to Google.

  • I don't see how this is remotely SE's problem. – cat Feb 5 '16 at 2:14
  • @cat can you explain your reasoning? – Andrew Grimm Feb 5 '16 at 2:19

    It just... it's Google's job to serve results, and it's not really SE's fault if Google messes up. I don't see how this isn't a Google issue (and a very minor one) – cat Feb 5 '16 at 2:20
  • @cat It may be Google's fault, or it may be SE's fault. But in terms of how big a problem it is, there's a huge asymmetry. If, hypothetically speaking, Google no longer returned Stack Exchange results, it'd affect Stack Exchange far more than it would affect Google. – Andrew Grimm Feb 5 '16 at 2:26
  • It is IMHO very much SE's responsibility to add <link rel="canonical" ... /> to the pages to avoid duplicates with linked answers etc., see meta.stackexchange.com/q/313471/384103 – user1666456 Feb 3 at 10:37
