Optimizing meta title and meta description with keywords is always a great idea because they get crawled first in the site. But there are few things that you need to take into consideration: Do not stuff your keywords Use brand name in different forms, for example if you are having your brand name "mysweethouse", then you can use: mysweethouse, mysweet ...

Three basic rules for writing meta descriptions: Use a meta description that is likely to lead to higher click-through rates. Do you think that your brand name will make a user more likely to click on your listing? If so, use it. If not, don't use it. Don't use duplicate meta descriptions. Don't use a meta description at all if you can't think of an ...

The paradox of this question is that you are promoting SEO packages and calling your site "Top Seo Company India" with no understanding of SEO. You're already stuffing metas, already spamming keys, and its not even your client. Shame. PS: to answer your question, Google dynamically displays your content based on queries and location. Metas, descs, page ...

Thats kinda strange. Im assuming its because v1.0 is the first words on the page and because you put the string inside of a logo div. Normally Google would pull the fallback/alt/title site name from that logo div innards. Since you have no alt+title on the img, its using the next div assuming its in text logo fallback. Google uses class/id names in a manner ...

Q. What is "content"? A. Everything between the <body> tags. Not just the bit you call "content" at the bottom of the page. The text "Thank you for contacting us..." is one of the first bits of textual content in the page source, and you don't have a meta description, so it can't be too much of a surprise that this text is appearing as the description ...

Google declared to execute JavaScript with their bots, see this post for more explanation. As documented you mustn't forbid static files to GoogleBot for dynamic crawling.

You need to check the server side source code of the page on the server and look for code that does not belong. Even though you tested a few different user agents, it is trivial to make a dynamic page show different content to various users based on any factor. A hacker could also make it only happen at certain times of day, etc. Until you've checked the ...

Okay. I just read the article and watched the video and the article is rather misleading. It is, while a milder form, a misunderstanding of what Matt Cutts was saying. This happens often even by experts in the field. One needs to listen to what Matt says carefully and not read into what is said too much. Often, people hear what they want to hear and run with ...

There are two things you have to keep in your mind: The easier to remember, the better you have to be able to remove each part in the url without breaking it This makes your 3 examples rather easy: A http://www.example.com/category/sub-category/sub-sub-category/article/ID B http://www.example.com/ID/category/sub-category/sub-sub-category/article C ...

You say you have checked Google's multilingual guidelines pages, but have you implemented the rel="alternate" hreflang= mark up, either on the pages source code or in sitemaps? If not you should do that, as it can help Google discover and understand the connection between your translated pages. If you haven't already, make sure all your URLs are in a ...

Since this is an AJAX application anyway, write the data into the pages separately from your escaped fragments. Users would generate two AJAX requests: GET /fragment?id=12345 that would contain the text and HTML for the screen with a placeholder for the data GET /data?id=12345 that would be the actual data to write into the screen (maybe the data would ...

In my opinion, you shouldn’t serve different content for users and search engines; it’s called cloaking and as you most probably know, it’s a bad SEO practice. And even if you don’t want to manipulate search engines results, I think Google bots couldn’t make any difference; as you know, they’re only bots. When you say search engines wouldn’t care about fake ...

Instead of using just the canonical tag on both pages, use the annotations for desktop and mobile URLs. On the desktop page, add: <link rel="alternate" media="only screen and (max-width: 640px)" href="http://example.com/?mobile=1" > and on the mobile page, add the canonical tag: <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/" > ...

Some things you can do: a. 301 redirect all URLs, so that .ac.uk/anything goes to .co.uk/anything (yes, including /sitemap.xml, /robots.txt, etc. The one exception could be your Google Webmaster verification file, but it's probably easier to handle verification through DNS in this case). b. Use Google Webmaster Change of Address tool c. Try to change as ...

I don't think that Google have ever stated that bounce rate is a ranking factor. However, my personal belief is that "click back" rates are a factor, simply because it would be too useful a metric for Google to ignore. User receives a link 1hr before the webinar starts In this case, the user isn't actually arriving from Google's search results. Thus, ...

The amount of time that users spend on your site after clicking on a webinar link that has been sent to them via email will in no way change your Google rankings. Here is a video by Google's Matt Cutts where he addresses whether or not Google uses Google Analytics data as a ranking factor. The answer is "no". Google does care about the experience its ...
