Even my own site spelt BYBE google used to returning results for 'BABY' and 'BABE' for almost a year, other good examples: Flickr Reddit Digg Tumblr Mashbord Fiverr All purposely misspelt Google will assoicate the correct and incorrect ...

I reviewed your record and the error was because of the spaces( ) in the keys. the key must be in a single line without space. Look closely and remove all spaces and it will work properly. Best regards! p= ...

That is going to happen to at least some point without your having to do anything. Google uses a load-balancing mechanism to load different Google sites according to the audience. It would not make sense for a data center to serve sites and pages that a portion of the world is not looking for or in a language that is not understood. The .com site will have a ...

Unfortunately, if the old domain is completely lost then it's not possible to "preserve search engine ranking". Otherwise, what would stop anyone else from "preserving" your ranking? The only way is to re-register / renew the old domain and prove ownership by showing you can control the old domain (set-up redirects, verify in GWT, etc.) It's now serving ...

With regards to displaying email addresses, it is worth considering methods to prevent their being easily harvested for spamming. The email address I use only for WHOIS records on my domains receives thousands of spam emails a day, mostly from free email accounts (e.g. gmail and similar) with people saying they can help design my website or improve my SEO ...

It turns out this was indeed a bug in their system where the introduction of .uk domains a year ago as a country-code top level domain (ccTLD) and not just as a second-level domain (e.g. .co.uk, .org.uk, .ac.uk etc.), had not yet been catered for in their system.

This occurs because the .htaccess will be inherited in all child directories. This is a common issue when using add-on domains because each domain shares the same path environment. This can be resolved by any of the following: Use more secure hosting with jailed accounts Use a .htaccess in each add-on domain child directory Use %{HTTP_HOST} ...

The easiest ways to do a redirect in order from the old-fashioned method to the best method is as follows: Code snippet 1 saved as index.html in the document root of the old URL. <html> <head> <title>Redirecting</title> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;URL=http://store.xyz.com"> </head> <body> ...

The new TLDs are as secure as the legacy TLDs. Here why? For starters, every new domain registry operator had to pass a rigorous application process to own the rights to a new TLD (Financial, Policies, Technical etc.) If a new TLD operator did fail ICANN, the governing body for the Internet and all domains has backup processes in place where they would ...

There's a programmed delay just so that they make sure that tests run against the system are inconclusive. For that very reason, delay's' length is not always the same. So, you'll have to simply wait.

CloudFlare is setting up the domain. Since it is used to work with the main domain. Techincally speaking the "www." prefix is always a subdomain/CNAME/alias of the main domain. You're all fine with CloudFlare configuring the domain without www since you're able to control both the non-www and www part of it. So for the DNS settings, everything looks fine. ...

If you're curious to see your propagation, visit https://www.whatsmydns.net/ and enter your domain to see where it's checking in on various DNS servers. Your mobile phone is a different network than your home computer and is using different DNS servers. You can also try flushing your DNS on your computer to see if that's a culprit: ...

The < appname >.herokuapp.com target is doing virtualhosting (hosting multiple domains on one IP) and your space is configured to serve requests for < appname >.herokuapp.com but since you made a CNAME of www.< domain >.net pointing to it, the target is getting a request for www.< domain >.net and unless the target is specifically configured to ...

There are several issues you are dealing with. Having more domains does not help with search traffic. As a concept, this notion can be thrown away. There is little exception to this rule. Having sites with little or thin content can never rank. Search engines prefer sites with content. Spam sites have historically hosted thin content, link pages, and ...

According to: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/2721217 Your idea is bad. It specifically states ...some redirects deceive search engines or display content to human users that is different than that made available to crawlers. It's a violation of Google Webmaster Guidelines to redirect a user to a different page with the intent to ...

If you suspect people would misspell so much, consider to simply change brand name. It's reasonable. Anyway: you would find queries with misspelled brand name in your Webmaster Tools. If some of them get a discreet amount of traffic, just bid them on AdWords. It would come cheap. No, Google won't learn anything from what you do on AdWords, but at least you ...

Is every single page different? Let's say there were pages with the same content on both domains, for instance information about your company, with the only difference being the .jp's company information is in Japanese while the .com's company information is in English - in this case, you could use the hreflang annotation to further help Google find and ...

We have a client with the unfortunate situation of losing access to their current domain name "A". We've just finished finished setting their website up on domain "B". Both websites on "A" and "B" are the same..... However, "A" is no longer available and we don't have access to renew it. It's now serving advertisement! That last word "same" ...

No need for any tools really. You don't even need to change your nameservers. You can do it with just an A record(s) for the most part. First log into your DNS zone manager. Then make an A record pointing the domain to your server IP. Then make a www CNAME record with an alias to that domain, as well as an MX of the same domain alias. On the server, use ...

www. is an automatic alias. (See http://www.chickenaday.appspot.com/ vs http://chickenaday.appspot.com/). Why force the user? If you do want to redirect, you could try this untested snippet of slightly modified code from http://stackoverflow.com/a/10964868/3164117: from urlparse import urlparse, urlunparse @app.before_request def redirect_nonwww(): ...

How does this affect the SEO of the website and does it also affect other websites that are hosted on the same server? Just the generation of a subdomain wouldn't affect the website. A cPanel add-on domain is unlikely to have an effect on another domain which are in general completely scoped from each other. When it has an effect, will that effect ...

If I were you, I would certainly take both domains, you wouldn't want someone else to use elniƱo.com when you have a site called elnino.com. Point both to the same webspace, but choose one as the cannonical one. It can be either, but personally I would go for the one without accents, because it's sure to work from anywhere and avoids compatibility or ...
