Days, Weeks and Months... It can take Google days, weeks and even months for Google to remove pages marked noindex, robots and 404's. Generally it takes Google several crawls before Google acts on the new information of a page. User Errors It should be also noted that more than often users make human errors and create 404's, noindexs and so forth by ...

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 ...

You should be fine with noindexing the page, as there is no legal requirement to have T&C pages indexed (nor even included on a site). However you might want to do a back link check and check traffic to the page in GA first; perhaps people are linking to the page (unlikely) or it gets a lot of traffic and this could be why it keeps getting picked? If ...

Yes Google shows only top 1000 errors. It will show you the next 1000 errors in next 24 hours. Keep checking every day and click on fixed. I faced similar problem few months back. But I had only 3000 errors so I was able to fix in 3 days. As long as you don't get any new errors recorded Google will not penalize you.

Actually, your site is not slow. The graph is in milliseconds. Your download speeds hover around 1 to 1.5 seconds. That is actually pretty good. Yes there are faster sites, but you would be surprised by what sites are slower. Keep in mind that Google is not kind when measuring these numbers. And your numbers are okay. Keep in mind, much of your download ...

It merely means that when the crawler visited some of your pages, the response speed was slow. It may or may not be an intermittent issue but I would recommend that you do a performance audit of your pages. If you're not sure where/how to proceed, Google page insights is a good bet: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

Google is telling you that some pages found in your sitemap loaded very slowly. There are online testing tools to check the speed of your site. There are several, but the first good looking service is http://gtmetrix.com/. But while this is an option people like, read on. Google does tell you what pages loaded slowly using Google Analytics, Site Speed, ...

If you marked those pages with a noindex meta tag, there are two possible reasons I see: Googlebot didn't reindex the site yet and you don't have wait enough (it can take a lot of time like several weeks, it depends on the site crawl rate) You use 404 instead of 410 HTTP status (Gone)

Because it could then be abused to index a single page 100 times per minute, which would waste Google's server power and bandwidth. You may look at Google as a machine with limitless resources but it is not so, every byte and cpu cycle counts :) As for the 500 and 10 links submission limit per week - it is set reasonably high, most smaller sites do not ...

My guess is that you were added as a "restricted" or "full" user and don't have the ability to link to a Analytics account. Only "owner" level users in GWT have permissions to link to an Analytics account. When I am a site owner, I have the option in the manage dropdown to link to analytics as well as an option to manage other users: Google has ...

To be honest, I am not entirely sure I understand your problem. Not your fault of course. With that in mind, I will work with some assumptions that may not be your scenario exactly. The first thing you need to know is that Google Webmaster Tools lags behind about 2 days normally and may not update any sitemap status for longer than that. It may not update ...

Specifying a canonical on the filter pages to the parent (non-filter) page is perfectly fine but you can also serve a meta noindex, nofollow on these filter pages as well and instruct Google what to do with these filter URL's (if they contain parameters) from the section of Google WMT you've already mentioned. Disallowing them in robots.txt is also another ...

Google is reaching your sitemap file okay and complaining about the domain name used within the sitemap. I looked at your sitemap, and it all looks okay at first glance. The only thing I can think of, is that you have Google Webmaster Tools domain name set to www.buraktas.com and your sitemap is using buraktas.com. Check this. You may need to change one or ...

Google can sometimes take a while to update their UI, so it may take a while for what you're seeing to change. Did you recently point DNS records? If so, it can take up to 24 hours to propagate. A dig shows --- H3LIUS:~ connarpierce$ dig buraktas.com ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;buraktas.com. IN A ;; ANSWER SECTION: buraktas.com. 14400 IN A ...

There might be better ways to do this but when stuck, my default tool is Sublime Text. Download all site files, download the database, then use ST to do a find (or find and replace) for the old domain (and/or IP address). Be careful though, WordPress uses serialized strings.

You can install multiple instances of the Google Analytics tracking code on your web pages to send data to multiple properties in your account. Not all configurations are supported. You can, for example, install multiple instances of the Universal Analytics tracking code (analytics.js) on your web pages but only one instance of the Classic Analytics code ...
