does it make sense to remove Google Analytics / webmaster if you site has G +1 or adsense

    i have seen two different threads in the last day or two
    saying they got a big boost in SERP after removing google analytics / webmaster

    i dont know if it makes sense... but if you site has G +1 button or adsense or any big G stuff like translator or widget and stuff

    would'nt google already have the website data since the backend database / tracking system / user identifiers IS the same across all G properties?

    Not sure about that, but i can add that when i removed analytics from my sites, i seem to have a boost up in serps for every site i own. not sure if it's simply a coincidence or what, but it happened.

    Personally, I keep my main sites clear of all of the above. You may want to ask some other people to find out if they are using any Google service on their site. You bring up a good point though.

    Those statements are not proven yet. I see sites over-ranking websites with google services.

    thats why i posted this thread... i read two such threads in the last two days and just to experiment i even removed GA and webmasters stuff from one of my sites.

    Only now i dont know how to track it effectively :p

    you dont have any social sharing on your sites?
    addthis
    sharethis
    not even adsense?

    exactly, millions of websites including the likes of alexa , amazon , mashable , even BHW use google analytics or some google APIs or feature.

    so i dont know how this removing can actually help.
