In episode 293 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if Google lied about their documentation on sameAs schema.
The exact question was:
Hi guys, according to Google's documentation SameAs schema support has been dropped around 2 years ago. Do you think they lied and for what purpose? I personally think they use reciprocal links for verification and possible ML as many social profile icons show up in the Knowledge graph and search without any usage of SameAs schema. Since Yoast and other SEO plugins removed SameAs for that reason, do you think it is worth it to add that schema to the money site manually or throw some plugin made from a Google's non-believer [same as meta keywords]?
