I would say no. And this question has been asked on Google webmaster forums and the response was: Having URLs from your website submitted in their disavow file will not cause any problems for your website. One might assume that they are just trying to pressure you. If the comment links they pointed to you are comment-spam that was left by them (or ...

I really wouldn't worry. Google can't rely on the genuineness and accuracy of user generated disavow lists to blacklist/penalise domains on the internet. At present, if your domain ends up on a website's disavow list, this just tells Google that website does not trust (or can't vouch for) the link from your website to theirs and to subsequently not factor in ...

429 errors are: 429 Too Many Requests The 429 status code indicates that the user has sent too many requests in a given amount of time ("rate limiting"). The response representations SHOULD include details explaining the condition, and MAY include a Retry-After header indicating how long to wait before making a new request. Most web hosts ...

I would recommended either using the www or non-www and stick with it. Set a preferred URL in Webmaster Tools and then 301 to either your www or non-www. The reason for this would be Google would see both the non-www and www sites as two separate websites. If the content is exactly the same, then you could be penalized with duplicate content.

No, you can't submit the exact same sitemap (same syntax, same URLs), and expect Google to sort out what kinds of assets you're trying to identify. If you submit a sitemap that you intend to be for your videos, and it doesn't have the required Video sitemap syntax, and contain the required video-specific tags, Google won't see it as a video sitemap. It's ...

[Disclosure: I run Product Management for Hosting at GoDaddy and am the acting PM on our Managed WordPress product] Based on your question and feedback we have made a few changes to our settings: Bot rate-limiting has been raised from 3 requests / second to 15 requests / second. Bot rate-limiting now excludes static files. Only dynamic, un-cached ...

Honestly you are better off removing everything from your robots.txt. As far as I can see, all PHP files in Joomla contain the line defined('_JEXEC') or die; Which means if you load a PHP file directly in the browser all you get is a blank file, which search engines will ignore. (They shouldn't ever come across these anyway unless you linked them ...

Please do not think that the auto-suggestion mechanism is too much of any indication. It is a simple process that has no significant tie to search. But your question is still a good one. Both domain names will perform for search as they should. There may be some confusion for users who are looking for one or the other domain with the auto-suggestion ...

Instead of just showing 1000 links all at once, you could introduce: a pagination feature - showing between 10 and 30 links per page, e.g. 50 pages of 20 links each, or 20 pages of 50 links each. For example: |< < Page 3 of 20 > >| a search box - enabling users to seach for a document using related keywords instead of scrolling through an ...

Use an alternative verification method. For example, DNS TXT record ("Domain Name Provider").

If you want the page to rank and be returned for queries relevant to the scientific papers within it, you will have to change the page structure. Right now, it's a list of 1000 links. That's a useful resource to Googlebot for discovering all the papers you link to, but not a useful page for human visitors. The New York Times has a similar approach for ...

You can use the domain A right now if you want. The only issue you can think about is URLs which already existed on your old site on domain A because users could be redirected to the domain B. Make sure you don't have duplicated URLs between your new site and the old one on the domain A.

For Google Webmaster Tools to work, your site would have to be publicly available and assigned a domain name. You can use other tools to check your website for problems. For example, http://www.screamingfrog.co.uk/seo-spider/ which should help with many things prior to going public. You will not be able to fully know how your will perform in search engines ...

Google treats the base domain as roll-up of all the subdomains. I have a site with 10 subdomains each with about the same number of pages. In Google Webmaster Tools it reports that the base domain has the sum of the pages on all subdomains indexed, even though the base domain doesn't have that many pages itself. Based on your findings, it would appear ...

If your only link to these internal pages in one link each from your home page, the problem is that they don't each get enough Pagerank. Pagerank is a measure of the link juice passed to a page from its inbound links. Your home page only has so much Pagerank and it can only pass a very tiny amount when you divide it up between 1,000 links. One of the ...

So after banging our heads off the wall on this one for several more days, we posted in the Google Product forums: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/webmasters/crawling-indexing--ranking/fFo28LFajWo. Within 24 hours the site was appearing in results as expected, so it appears that Google must have manually intervened somehow, because we ...

From my experience the reply to this question is: it depends. And it depends on a lot of things: How many traffic your site has? If you have a lot, it can be reviewed even daily. How many links your site has? If you have a lot, the crawlers will follow them and reach your site more often. For what I saw, I managed a site with +200k users / day and the ...

check htaccess and dns server connectivity. this often occurs in shared hosting. Besides, htaccess has been created before we upload our web file in shared hosting. try to check both of items. If OK in htaccess, then you should contact your host.

If you're looking for complete Apache referer_log analysis, you will have to use your tools rather than what Google provides you. I think they are trying to provide you a distilled version of referrals which will provide a good but incomplete picture. The answer to your question is in a blog post from Google: The relevant passage is: we're showing a ...

First, I would run some tests on that page using one of the following tools: 1) Google Page Speed 2) WebPageTest.org These two will give you an idea of why your page is slow to respond. It could be the map taking too long to call home or it could be something related to your hosting environment. Usually if its your hosting then the entire site would be ...

First, you need to identify what where the issue is.

It could be the map taking too long to call home or it could be something related to your hosting environment. Usually if its ...

It is very rare that Google indexes 100% of any large sitemap. I'd estimate that Google only indexes no more than 50% of the content that it crawls. It often doesn't include content in the indexes because of: content duplication low quality (or lower quality than something else that it is making room for) low Pagerank low site reputation crawl errors ...
