It will stop scraping descriptions from . It won't pick descriptions from titles or navigation bars. Same with the element. If you're using lots of divs full of ...

There are a number of filters in place, here are the two that are most likely in effect: User filters are applied to try and make search results more relevant to your history. It could be that an advanced search is 'hiding private results'. There's a button to replicate this if you're logged into Google, in the top-right of the display. Google will hide ...

It has to do with the value of the page. If you Google for "tools" you're more likely to get "Home Depot" than search results with a wall of tools. I have some theatre companies I work with. If you search for some of the actors who have played parts, you will get the theatre company production page and not the actor's page. As far as Bing goes, well, ...

Yes, those 404 are making it difficult for Google to crawl you. As Google starts crawling a site, the more trusted, valued, updated, etc. the site gets, the more Google crawls it again, maybe crawling it more often and maybe crawling it deeper into the site structure. Those 404 are treated as really bad links to Google that decrease that value of your ...

Search engines usually show an estimate of the total number of documents matching your search criteria. To provide an exact answer they would need extremely complex indexes, requiring a lot more of hard disk space. Granted, 1,000 vs. 150 is quite a bad estimate, but it's an estimate nonetheless.

Does Google just put that "First -" itself? Nope. Otherwise where might that be coming from? There are several things you will need to check since this is WordPress. All of them are misconfigurations of one kind or another Check your plugins to see if you have an SEO helper such as All in One SEO, Platinum SEO or Yoast SEO. if you have one, ...

Google will still crawl the page, but if there is information about your page on dmoz, Google wont display that information on it's search result page. One source Google uses to generate snippets is the Open Directory Project. You can direct us not to use this as a source by adding a meta tag to your pages. To prevent all search engines (that ...

From official documentation -> https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663419?hl=en If you have a web page that you just deleted but it is still showing up in your custom search results, and it is very important to you that it does not show up in search results as soon as possible; or if one of your web pages contains inappropriate content and you ...

The logo property is a sub-property of the image property. That means that whenever you use logo, you are implicitly also using image. And logo can currently only be used for a few types (Brand, Organization, Place, Product, Service), while image is defined for Thing, so it can be used everywhere. It does not necessarily have to make sense to use both ...

I'd use it where you have both a logo and a feature image on a page, like this: This page isn't actually marked up like this, but you could set logo for the actual Crocs logo on the right, and image for the banner featuring the product on the left.

The code seems in order. But one of the guidelines for use of AggregateRating "Make sure the reviews and ratings you mark up are readily available to users from the marked-up page. It should be immediately obvious to users that the page has review or ratings content." Reviews, I suppose, aren't present on the website. And I am guessing that you don't link ...

This happened to my website once. I have submitted about 80K URLs and Google indexed about 72K URLS. Later it slowly removed most of the pages. What I found is that the pages which I have submitted has thin content. And also, Poor architecture might be secondary reason. So check if all pages having unique and sufficient content and resubmit.

The HTTPS doesn't always show alongside links with breadcrumbs. If you search and hover your mouse over the links, you can see the destination. For example: You see here that the destination URL includes HTTPS, even though it doesn't show in the result itself.

I don't have any evidence but there are many reasons why Google may prefer the PDF version. For example if that is the most linked to version, Google may deem that copy of the content to be the best source - especially if the HTML alternative links to the PDF too. This might give more relevance to that version of the content. Also, if the two copies of the ...

Interestingly, while I get the same "Traduire cette page" link from google.fr, on visiting the page (my browser is set to British English) Chrome tells me the page is in French and offers to translate it. The browser function allows you to report errors. I can't be sure that errors reported here will affect search results, but it's certainly worth a ...

Are you talking about site:www.sample.com vs site:a.sample.com OR site:sample.com vs site:a.sample.com Google usually shows all subdomains when you do site:sample.com including results from a.sample.com but if you do site:www.sample.com (where www is a subdomain), it shows only results from www.sample.com. Even in case of site:sample.com vs ...

Closetnoc pretty much sums this up in comments... no benefit. To answer your specific questions: I understand this should not affect search engine ranking at all Correct.
