I doubt this will give you any problems (if anything, it should be a net benefit as it will reduce bounce). If there are any issues with inbounds not seeing the content they expect, it won't be a problem for long. Assuming you have pagination links set up properly and/or use sitemaps, Google will adjust its index in due course and begin directing users to ...

There is no boost in SERP placement as a result of using mark-up with one round-about exception. I will explain. A page has mark-up and a search query makes a match against that page. Simply because the matched page has mark-up, one cannot assume there is a boost in SERP placement. That is not how it works and an overly simplistic view. There is no metric ...

I'm head of SEO for a website with a similar structure to your own: The with large amounts of content coming from the same template but being filled out by Event details. Google will choose whether a page is worth indexing or not. If it deems a page too sparse on content, it will drop it from the index. There are penalties for bad linking and bad content. ...

Google would be happy to index billions of very unique web pages, but it hates indexing multiple URLs that point to exactly the same content. For your match pages, you need to make sure the information is unique enough. If one page has this content: This football event just happened between (insert team name here) and (insert other team name here). Here ...

One, two or even a few months sometimes isn't enough time for Google to update its index with changes in a website and start displaying results in the way the website owner is desiring. And it's not only time what is needed, but thorough SEO work in all aspects. Now, regarding Google showing main links pages for a certain website like in your screenshot, it ...

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#...

What I would suggest is to create a brand new set of URLs for search result pages and then for anyone requesting the old URLs, produce an error page with an HTTP 410 status code. Also, make your search pages only accessible via the POST request method. Google won't crawl pages that are requested via POST if it is requested as a result from filling out a ...

Google supports Noindex: in robots.txt as an experimental feature. It sounds like this would be the perfect case for using it: User-Agent: * Disallow: /search/ Noindex: /search/

Google won't crawl the disallowed path specified in robots.txt but you can't control through robots.txt the references to your site search results from other sites. While Google won't crawl or index the content blocked by robots.txt, we might still find and index a disallowed URL from other places on the web. As a result, the URL address and, ...

An example of an actual <TITLE> element would have helped. Anyway, the <TITLE> element is the most important on-page factor for SEO as well as CTR, so it should be optimized properly. Do note that title elements beyond 65 chars would be truncated by Google in the SERPs, so you've gotta be a bit creative within that character limit. Stuffing in ...

One thing you should try is using the domain instead of a relative slash / for home. But if that doesn't fix it, yes there is an error. Google shouldn't be displaying home like that, it takes the form of domain. Why? Who knows. But here is what we do, this could change at any time: If you properly mark up your breadcrumbs with the older data-vocab syntax ...

Good question! I'd never thought of attempting to redefine/rename the root. The root directory is assumed to be the domain itself. By defining it with a link, you've caused it to create a new directory 'Home' that is assuming the same position as the root. This has created both the assumed root and the 'Home' directory in the structure and the situation you'...
