Do you use Google Webmaster Tools? There is a section there labeled "HTML Improvement" which can catch stuff like missing or duplicated title or description meta tags. See this: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/80407 for more details.

Showing the rich snippets is not that directly connected to authority of the domain, rather than the proper RFD markup. So if you have proper RFD tags, then Google site search should be displayed with the rich snippets.

So I assume by application you mean iOS & Android app? Then to me it seems that you sacrifice your mobile SERP for the ranking of the app itself. Usually you can expect a noticable drop of the organic traffic, but it will be alright after some time(shouldn't be more then a month).

If you do a search, Google will show all sites which are relevant, regardless of their location. If you decide to filter by 'Country: UK' then it will mainly show the sites which are geo-targeted to the UK.

They check the language of your browser if I'm correct. So that means they conclude that you are UK based on your browser's language (en_UK), maybe combined with the domain extention (but I dont believe the latter has much to do with it). If you manualy go to another countries domain, it sees that you are not using the countries default version, so you must ...

The dropdown option "Any Country" shows you "Google.com" results. It will get you from Google.co.uk to Google.com results.

Unfortunately, you can't. Google search now exclusively uses HTTPS, and all search result clicks go through an intermediate URL that removes the keywords. The URL you posted above appears to be that intermediate URL, and that's all you get as the referrer. The reasoning behind this is that each user of Google often gets personalised results based on their ...

If ent.example.com does a 301 redirect to www.example.com/ent/ then all is fine, you loose only a tiny bit of page rank. You may also use rel=canonical in the header of both pages and add a single url that is relevant. It's really up to you, have a look at how Google looks at 301 vs rel=canonical. More info about any further SEO related questions can be ...

I believe instant preview in Webmaster tools does take in account of robots.txt as the faqs for Instant Preview state that an error would be generated if blocked. Roboted: The resource is being disallowed from being fetched through a robots.txt directive for Googlebot. https://sites.google.com/site/webmasterhelpforum/en/faq-instant-previews#14

The "U" in URL stands for "Unique" (some say Uniform) which should be a good clue here :) Best case scenario is that you split any "link popularity" between 2 different URLs. Imagine half the visitors to the page using one URL and half using the other URL. Each URL only gets 50% of the traffic, 50% of any popularity "score" that Google might apply. To that ...

If you followed https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/156449?hl=en then you should be fine. The robot.txt should block those areas properly. Wait a couple of days to a week or so then check Webmaster Tools (sign up if you haven't already) and it will show you how many pages were blocked by robots.txt and you will see those pages vanish from Google ...

If you are having a penalty issue doing a 301 redirect will not fix that. It will most likely redirect the penalty. Be careful when buying old domains, some of them have penalties on them and that is why the owner is selling them. Get Webmaster Tools, see if there are any manual action penalties. If there aren't see what your rankings are. It could just be ...

Even if you have redirects and/or canonical tags set up to your preferred domain, you should still set your preferred domain in Google Webmaster Tools (GWT for short) To do this click the gear icon in the top right of GWT, and click 'site settings', then tick your preferred domain. Most of the time this option will be greyed out (not selectable) and there ...

Do you have Google Webmaster Tools? If not, go sign up right now. If you have a manual penalty then it will be in the notification. If you do not have a manual penalty, then you need to check the quality of all of your backlinks. If you have some spammy sites linking to you, Google can put you in a "bad neighborhood" that will devalue your site. Luckily, if ...

Before redirecting everything, consider if it's your content that has the problem or if it's the backlinks that were devalued. Around the time you saw the drop, many "low quality link" networks were under fire. As the link networks were devalued, so were the sites that they were propping up on the SERPs. If your problem is related to penguin and bad links, ...

As you're doing a permanent redirect, Google will treat any non-www links it finds the same as the www ones so you only need to submit one. You should submit it in the form that you have decided on (so in your case, the www version). x

Although their documentation doesn't say so, using the rel attribute is supported by Google, so both should work. The 'in-URL' ?rel= syntax exists for blog users, who may not have access to edit the page's HTML tags, but the HTML5 separate attribute version is more 'correct' so I'd recommend: <a href="[profile_url]" rel="author">Author</a>

In most cases, the homepage has more SEO weight because it gets more backlinks to it than other pages. If you want to see showing up on Google Search each page of your site for specific keywords, you can try: to optimize each page for these specific keywords (<title>, <h1>, etc.) to get more backlinks to these internal pages

They look like ones which Google automatically generate and will likely stay whilst your page stays the same. See here : http://insidesearch.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/new-snippets-for-list-pages.html

Google search limit Google has and will never return that many results at one time even if you clicked pages next, next, next. Most returned results are capped at 1,000 but can differ depending on the search type. It should be noted that Google often changes the title and meta description when searching so you should never use Google search as reliable way ...

As it is new content, it will still take some time for it to go up. Also, you cannot guarantee it's placement on the first place, as there might be some more relevant content (at least according to google).
