I want to mention that the page-speed insights tool made by Google allows individual pages to be checked for speed and mobile usability and provides results for both desktop and mobile devices. It will provide detail on what you can do to make the site mobile friendly. It may also give a yellow warning message to those sites that might not pass the mobile ...

The blocked resources are not generally a problem. These messages are just informational most of the time. These messages are not why your site is deemed to be mobile unfriendly since they are not included in the test. In fact, you can just plain ignore blocked resources unless they are not intended to be blocked. Since you are running WP and these are in ...

No- not generally. These have no specific search value in normal cases with some exception. Programmers use word boundaries to separate terms of value in a string and would normally only use special characters if they have meaning. Special characters have no value when making text search matches except where there appears to be a special meaning. For ...

As is is clear that the pipe character holds special meaning in this situation, I would suggest using a substitute in your page title markup, such as the light vertical bar ❘ (&#10072, U+2758), or the double vertical line ‖ (&#8214, U+2016).

We have been having very similar issues with our website. As with yours we have waited above that time period (6 months in fact), and all the testing tools show the markup as valid. The third bullet point is most likely the issue. The reasons Google outline are (in the form of answering a question): " Q: Why doesn't my site show rich snippets? I added ...

Just to make sure the google bots aren't gonna play a picky move, if you have a landing page, you might want to add a few more words to the page other than just the list of languages to choose from. Perhaps give a simple welcome message to the (insert website name here) in all the languages. At least then Google won't label the page as "thin content". ...

Admittedly, this one is only a slight bit off my understanding of how Google uses branding and pipes. For example: Americas finest widget manufacturer. | WidgetCo.com Americas finest widget manufacturer. | Brass widgets | WidgetCo.com Should normally yield: WidgetCo: Americas finest widget manufacturer. WidgetCo: Americas finest widget manufacturer. | ...

Splash screens are acceptable according to Google. They do offer some best practices however, when using multi-language/multi-regional sites. In this article, Google recommends the use of the hreflang tag within <link rel="alternate" ... /> tag in the head. The specific excerpt from the article is below: For language/country selectors or ...

In HTML5, iframe comes as a replacement for frameset. iframe has been around since HTML 4. It was introduced at the same time as frameset. There isn't a replacement for frameset since framesets are just awful. Is this expected? Yes. If the server says that only pages from the same origin may frame a page, then it will appear blank if framed from a ...

You have just solved your problem. All it took was a description defined in the meta tag like so: <meta name="description" content="CmisSync: It's like Dropbox for Enterprise Content Management" /> Without one, Google would have had to take a stab at what the perfect description would be based on the important keywords in your webpage. I was just ...

Your problem is rather simple to understand. Your title tag is too short and your description meta-tag is short and rather nondescript. Follow that, your h1 tag matches your title tag and is too short and nondescript. Your first h2 tag is also nondescript. Your first paragraph is also short. In short, you have not given anything for Google to use for a ...

Going by your example, I will guess that google chooses the word "contact" over "hi let's talk" as a title because your page probably has the word "contact" more than once and it sounds more professional. But if you want a good chance at having your title as the title in search results, then you want to make it related to your page. This means having ...

I am not sure about how Google might treat an Italian site, however, I rather suspect the process is the same. So I will continue. In your case, Google likely does not like the title as provided in the title tag. It is important that the title tag is not too short or too long and that the title tag be carefully crafted especially when using the pipe ...

You should definitely go back to the original format. And no, Google won't penalise you for that - mistakes happen and based on what you said, you aren't trying to game the algorithm or spam Google. In fact, if you check Webmaster Tools, you should start seeing duplicate title notifications and suggestions from Google to differentiate your Title tags. ...

There appears to be two things going on. Google may/will change the SERP link if certain conditions occur: one, the title length is too long; two, the title length is too short; three, the pipe character is used as a separator; four, branding can be detected. This is just a rough list but enough for us today. In your case, you are using the pipe character ...

I found a good discussion here and I like Zachary Schuessler answer. I tested my page with the tool mentioned and I saw google crawlers is seeing my hidden contents.

If you try to show content to Google and not users, you'll be trouble because that's cloaking. Search engines are actually crawling your content for it's users so if these end users can't see the content then whats the point. May be you could provide some sample of you book, which can also be crawlable.

Google likes to cache pages in search results to give users the option to view the cached page in case the real site goes down. What you can do in every page that you updated that Google still reports incorrectly is add the following HTML code between <head> and </head> of your outputted HTML code that the web browser processes: <meta ...

This is just an ad. Google apparently does not check to see if you already have a Google Webmasters Tools account before displaying the ad. I see this all the time for my site. Nothing to worry about.
