One site is a forum site and the other site is a blog. Google only shows those links in the search results for forum sites. It never does so for blog sites. The links are triggered because Google detects that the site is running common forum software such as PHP-BB. There is no documentation for the on-page markup that Google uses to detect forum ...

I've never liked the idea of updating <lastmod> every day as itt's not just wrong, it's misleading search engines. In a post over on SO, Google's Gary Illyes wrote: The lastmod tag is optional in sitmaps and in most of the cases it's ignored by search engines, because webmasters are doing a horrible job keeping it accurate. I've generally ...

It is normal for bloggers to update existing posts with new information. If you have set the permalink of your blog to reflect the date of the post, then changing the date could change the URL of the post as well. If you have existing links pointing to the URL, then you might notice a temporary drop in the ranks of that page till the time the link equity is ...

It is against the Google webmaster guidelines to clone pages and change only a few keywords to get them into the search results for different keywords. Google calls this practice doorway pages. You can create a page for each city served, but you have to make the pages substantially different as not to risk a penalty from Google. Some ways you could do ...

No, you don’t need Review items for getting the Aggregated Rating Rich Snippet. See their examples: Aggregate rating examples Aggregate rating with no best score Except for the AggregateRating item, they only contain the item that gets rated (Book in their case).

You might be better off combining both into one page. You already have a page that's "a bit ugly as a landing page"; so improve that first. You want to add product overlay/description/images; so add those here. UI is a bigger question, but my initial thought when reading your question was something like this: This means you end up with one strong, ...

You can not enforce a page to appear over another one in Google, you can only suggest to Search Engines that you think one page is more important that another one. Using the sitemap protocol. The priority tag definition states: The priority of this URL relative to other URLs on your site. (..) it only lets the search engines know which pages you deem ...

Google should recognize the date automatically. Your posts look pretty new, so perhaps it takes some time. When I google a search for frostali.blogspot.co.id it says "6 days ago".

You have to use the Rich snipped property "datePublished" in the HTML template of your articles Example: <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2015-02-05T08:00:00+08:00"/> <meta itemprop="dateModified" content="2015-02-05T09:20:00+08:00"/> Please find the folling Documentation https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/articles#...

I've used data URI images on a site and I have found the following: Your data URI images are unlikely to be indexed in Google image search. When the images are lazy-loaded, it is pretty much impossible to get them indexed. When using the full image in the data URI, it substantially increases page size. This causes Googlebot to crawl your site much more ...

What should I put in the alt tag for SEO? Why do you got this question? I mean, you deal here with pretty banal construction (image as data uri and regular image as fallback for noscript browsers), so it doesn't need any special solution. Use, as everybody uses, alt and title, fill them meaningful - those are the only best practices, both for SEO and for ...

What should I put in the alt tag for SEO? Anything? Nothing? Does Google even bother with data-uri images? Search engines define content as text. A website with just only images and values for the alt parameter will not rank well in search engines because there is no supplementary text to describe the image in detail. If you're trying to load images ...

As Google indexed your site the indexed pages and keywords are added into the index in near real time and go live into production. The reason why the index status is pending is because the crawl and evaluation of keywords has not yet been fully completed. For a new site this can take up to two weeks at times though frequently it is faster than that.

Regarding the first aspect of your question regarding censorship thanks to the first amendment there are no laws forcing censorship on user generated content to the extent that the service you are providing should not be designed for the breach of the law. A prime example of this is the torrent site The Pirate Bay. While the argument could be made all ...

Your example of the hierarchical layout is very close to the suggested usage of the mainEntity property suggested by the official protocol documentation: As mainEntity definition "indicates the primary entity described in some page", this is a perfect fit for your case, so my suggestion is that you choose this well structured code, Google should understand ...

There is no way through any Google tools to hurry or delay the crawl of a site. When you use tools such as Fetch and Render + submit it won't affect any queued crawling of the page in question, all it will do is add further details to the queue and submit the detected links to the queue as additional pages to crawl. Google can take anywhere from a few hours ...

It's not quite a case of Google choosing to replace the keyword with Not Provided. The issue here is that Google runs all of Google search using HTTPS. A safety restriction built into all browsers is not to provide the referrer header when the referrer is a HTTPS site, this is an intentional security feature. The way most libraries have worked in the past to ...
