You can choose any URL structure, thereby making sure that they are clean enough to understand. Personally, I would prefer location first because i would be knowing the location where i am going and then the restaurants and i have checked many of your competitors are also using the same structure.

Search engines will rank the keyword nearest to the domain as the most important, and the keyword nearest to the domain should be the one that's most important to the user. As such, given you're saying in theory you're comparable to Yelp, then my position is that location should be first.

The appropriate way to do this is to use the the rel=canonical attribute on your page. This will identify one source URL for your content. For example: <link rel="canonical" href="http://blog.example.com/dresses/green-dresses-are-awesome" /> Google acknowledges this issue in a write up found here: ...

If you are looking at structures like this it is really a case of which type of taxonomy works best for you. I would usually default to putting the L2 (category) landing page as the first part of the structure. So if you have a "Restaurants" page go from /restaurants/location/; if you have a "New York" page then go /new-york/restaurant/. If you have ...

I don't think there is necessarily a right or wrong answer here, but thinking about it logically, if i'm looking for a restaurant, I would most likely be looking for one within a certain local area. So with that in mind, I'd say www.example.com/new-york/restaurants/abc-restaurant would be the most logical and user friendly approach. You might want to ...

having rel publisher tags does not guarantee google will show the brand associated with the Google+ brand page. Few things you want to check. 1. Make sure you have not recently chosen and new URL for your google+ page (changing from # to something custom). 2. Make sure that this is happening when you request the raw page. Actually type the full url in ...

Your best bet is to just use robots.txt and tell google not to crawl your login page. Probably has very little SEO value anyways, if the only text google is picking up is the FB login code. Google interprets javascript as it crawls your site, and in your case it has decided that the text from FB login is of high value. Either build up the content of the ...

There's a lot of ways Google can associate a web page with a search term. Some of the more likely ones include the keywords being present in anchor text linking to that site and the other being those terms being in the content of pages that link to that site. That can happen anywhere. So, if another site has published a connection between the two then Google ...

Google allows you to demote a sitelink but not modify one. At the moment, sitelinks are automated. We're always working to improve our sitelinks algorithms, and we may incorporate webmaster input in the future.

In addition to Google Webmaster Tools, Majestic Seo has a horde of bots that people volunteer to run. It crawls quite frequently so has a rather accurate view of your backlinks schema. There is also Open Site Explorer, but that seems to index less. If you want a neat way to check literal source for your links, NerdyData has a decent pool, although not as ...

As John Conde pointed out, the link: method is ridiculously inaccurate. However, I'd also like to point out that Google Webmaster Tools isn't fully accurate either and that it can take a noticeable amount of time before links begin to display (Google have admitted this themselves). If you read this FAQ, you'll see: Q: I know I have [one / several / ...

Using the link: operator is not an accurate or official way to find out what links you have to your website. Google omits links on purpose to prevent SEO analysis of other websites you do not control. To get an accurate report of your incoming links you need a Google Webmaster Tools account. Under Search Traffic > Incoming Links you will see what links ...

Basically I agree – for search engine optimization it can be very useful to have a machine (and human) redable category name in your url. As John Conde points out it also helps you, your visitors and search bots to categorize your content. But I would strongly recommend to have a hierachical url structure – which does not seem to be the case in your ...

While Google won’t crawl or index the content of pages blocked by robots.txt, we may still index the URLs if we find them on other pages on the web. As a result, the URL of the page and, potentially, other publicly available information such as anchor text in links to the site can appear in Google search results. User-agent: * Disallow:/images/ According ...

Google isn't ignoring your robots.txt as robots.txt does not tell Google not to list that content in its search results. It tells Google not to crawl content. So Googlebot cannot find this content on its own. But if it does find this content it will still list it in the search results. To keep content out of the search results you need to use the ...

Google Webmaster Tools identifies keywords for your site, however, this has no connection with performance for those keywords. These listed keywords are site keywords (for the site overall) but SERPs (search engine result pages) return results for individual pages. It is a mistake to expect to perform well for keywords within this list because the list does ...

Google may look at your sitemap and evaluate it and choose not to use it preferring instead to crawl your site following links the old fashion way. If these pages are not linked, then Google, even with a sitemap, may not find them. If these pages are of real value, they should be linked. If the pages are spider food, then I suggest not linking them and not ...

Search engines do not require sitemaps to find and index content. They can find content through various means including links. They also will continue to crawl pages after they original find and index it to see if content has changed. So, you do not need to do anything as re-crawling these pages is a normal part f how search engines work.
