@closetnoc, @PeteS_UK thanks again for your help, and here's an update. I was lucky enough to get a short one-to-one with a Google SEO guru employee through a business organisation I'm involved with. The long and the short of this was that Google have no problem with different domain names 301 redirecting to different pages within the same website. I ...

From my experience the reply to this question is: it depends. And it depends on a lot of things: How many traffic your site has? If you have a lot, it can be reviewed even daily. How many links your site has? If you have a lot, the crawlers will follow them and reach your site more often. For what I saw, I managed a site with +200k users / day and the ...

Yes. But more importantly, a link within content is most important. Any link in most any placement on the page will be good for you assuming that the site is of quality and the link has good link alt text. There is some exception to this of course. For example a link in the footer is not wise. As well, a site-wide link is also not wise. Just make sure you ...

Here is Google's help document about the links to your site report in Google Webmaster Tools. It states: Not all links to your site may be listed. This is normal. This tool is not meant to be a full report of all the links to your site that Google can find. Rather Google intends it to be a representative sample of the links to your site so that you ...

There is a method known as the theme pyramid. It is simple in concept. So I will keep my answer simple too. Create a plan of sorts. You would identify your most important topics. Then sub-topics of the topic, then sub-topics of the subtopic. For example, Kitchen Supplies; Utensils, Pans, Appliances; then under pans; Frying, Sauce, Baking. You would link ...

The best way to do this is with a rel canonical link tag in the head of each of your pages. So the home page of both your main site and your bet site would have this: <link rel="canonical" href="http://example.com/" /> And foo.html on each would have this: <link rel="canonical" href="http://example.com/foo.html" /> That way Google knows ...

Never treat Googlebot any different than actual site visitors You should never treat Google bot any different from actual users. Redirecting Googlebot using user agent or other similar tactics and not users will likely harm your site as its against Google's guideline rules. Cosmetic changes say hello to canonical links If the beta site has the same ...

Low quality is not always considered thin content or non-relevant Google's algorithm for determining low quality links is extremely complex than just assuming the link is not relevant or thin on content, of course the majority of the time a link from a site that is not relevant and thin will be considered low quality but this isn't necessary always the ...

I found this quote in this article on using single vs multiple domains http://bit.ly/1zdAHh3 Deep links are hard to promote. Websites will often just link to your homepage, even >when their visitor would be better of landing on a specific page deeper within your >site. With multiple domains they are less likely to link off-topic. This also makes the ...

I think the answer to your question lies in your phrase "To get round this...". As soon as you try to get round Google you are asking for trouble. Build a site or sites based on business sense, not SEO. Publishers tend to have a separate website for each magazine because that makes sense. Amazon has one site but many unrelated departments because ...
