Actually it makes less sense to try to integrate all the domains into one because parts of domains can be used as important keywords to the website and could give you a better ranking. What I would suggest to create a close integration is to make sub domains as follows: camp.example.com media.example.com Then talk about the word in the sub domain name. ...

I'm not sure about the politics/laws involved with a nation blocking a domain, but you can access the web through an HTTP proxy in Saudi Arabia to see what it looks like from that IP. I googled "saudi arabia proxy" and tried a few before I found one that worked on http://www.proxynova.com/proxy-server-list/country-sa/. I used curl on a Mac to test the proxy ...

There is no issue with CF. Its just that you are trying to open a blogspot domain blog when its actually redirected to your own domain blog. So just use your own domain. that's it.

It is a nicety that both www and non-www forms of a site exist. However, it is better for search that this does not happen. It is better that one 301 redirect to the other. The reason for this is simple and two fold: one, no duplicate content; and two, search metrics/prowess is not divided over the two. It is far better to have one site that performs well ...

A domain name change may not really help you. In fact, you will be losing some important trust metrics such as site age. Most domain name changes are done under the assumption that having a keyword in a domain name will help. Keyword matches do happen, but after a long laundry list of other matches and last on the list when all other matches do not yield ...

Using keywords in the domain name is not going to do ANYTHING for you. Its really that simple! Not only is it not going to help but it could also hurt when you do the switch. Even if you do proper redirects. You will lose links and some of your current rank as well. Let me go even further with this because I am so tired of hearing about keywords... Build ...

Duplicate pages (regardless of domain) frustrates users. Imagine if google's duplicate content penalty was never in place. If a user searched for a term and found it on one of your sites, then your second site will be listed underneath it. If the user did not like the first entry, surely, there will be some sadness because the next entry is the duplicate of ...

I have a rewrite rule that forces my site url to be prefixed with "http://www". This is mainly for google analytics. So if someone goes to http://mywebsite.com it will redirect them to http://www.mywebsite.com. You can accomplish this in two ways: Create the rewrite in IIS if you have IIS URL Rewrite installed. Here is how it is done: Add a rewrite ...

The absolute simplest thing to do is create a CNAME record in your DNS that points myfrienddomain.com to sub1.mydomain.com and make sure there is no A record for myfrienddomain.com. You do not need a redirect. Let DNS do the work.

An easy way to do it in PHP is to create index.php on the site that needs to be redirected: <?php header("HTTP/1.1 301 Redirect",true); header("Location: http://example.com/folder",true); ?><html><head><title>Redirect</title></head><body><a href="http://example.com">Click here to ...

You can use the IIS URL Rewrite extension from Microsoft. IIS URL Rewrite 2.0 enables Web administrators to create powerful rules to implement URLs that are easier for users to remember and easier for search engines to find. By using rule templates, rewrite maps, .NET providers, and other functionality integrated into IIS Manager, Web administrators can ...

It really goes to who the owner is and how stable the company is. Since gTLDs are so expensive and requires a huge infrastructure build-out, generally, this would not be a fly-by-night organization, however, it can also be a case where huge financial risks are taken where the business plan/model is weak but the risk is taken for potentially high rewards. You ...

Google will verify a site that is redirecting properly. I just verified a domain name that redirects to my main domain name to test it. I used the "upload file" method: example.com is my main domain name example.com/google0123456789abcef.html has been uploaded to the site example.net redirects to example.com example.net/google0123456789abcef.html ...

The How... In the past few years icann opened up applications for custom GTLD names, you can take a look at application statuses on the ICANN website. Expect to see many new company names as gTLD in the next few years such as .bbc,.foodnetwork,.hilton etc. Sadly these scheme was only for the super rich or big corps with buckets filled with 100 dollar bills. ...

Basically you don't need to worry about the folder part at your domain registrar because of the way hosting works. All you should concern yourself with is the IP address of the server at Enjin.

.google actually is a valid top level domain (or top level zone), as is '.youtube'. Google applied for those TLDs a long time ago... successfully as we can now see. Google can now further delegate authority within that zone and com.google and other subdomains (or delegated zones) can become valid and be operated. Here's a news article on zdnet about this ...

Things are changing. There's quite a few ccTLD that Google is now treating as gTLDs. And this list will keep growing IMO. You can also set country-target on Google WebMaster Tools (gTLD only feature... hopefully will get improved). Also make sure your page clearly states the language (html lang=). Google will not treat Asian languages (Japanese) as Belgian ...

Yes. You have a problem. gTLDs and ccTLDs are treated differently in where they are placed. gTLDs enjoy great penetration throughout all of Google's data centers while ccTLDs do not. The reason is simple and two fold: one, language- Is the language understood within the region?; and two, search history- Has anyone searched and a result given been successful ...

Sub-domains can positively effect the parent domain just as they can negatively effect the parent domain. Minor errors are not a big issue. You only have to fix them. Generally, smaller errors such as this speaks to content quality. It is important that your content is high quality and performs well. Otherwise, particularly low quality content of any ...

No, subdomains are considered to be seperate sites entirely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MswMYk05tk http://moz.com/blog/subdomains-vs-subfolders-rel-canonical-vs-301-how-to-structure-links-optimally-for-seo-whiteboard-friday

When you change the DNS it can take upto 48 hours for the changes to propagate around the internet (ie. a lot longer than 10 minutes!). However, to speed things up (if you are changing from an existing service), you can reduce the TTL (Time To Live) for these DNS entries to something like 300 seconds (5 mins) a few days before you actually make the change. ...
