Partial just means that there were resources that couldn't be loaded. You cropped the picture to remove the list of resources, but below your cropped screenshot should be a list of resources that Googlebot failed to access alongside reasons why. Partial vs. Complete does not refer to the indexing status. You can still submit the page to Google if you do ...

Google states that is will take time for data to start appearing here. When you add your site to Search Console, it may take some time before diagnostic and other data is available. This is normal; it can take some time for Search Console to gather and process data for your site. In general, if you see a "No data yet" message, check back later. ...

What is the major differences between the two services? None. Nada. Zip. Bupkis. They are precisely the same thing. Webmaster tools was renamed Search Console. Thanks to @w3dk - He was able to find the original announcement here: https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2015/05/announcing-google-search-console-new.html

There are two types of redirects : 1) 301 : permanent redirect -> If you have added this, then google will know that you have permanently moved this page and will store this in its index. 2) 302 : temporary redirect -> This will not let crawler index the redirection permanently. Firstly make sure that the redirection is 301 permanent redirect. Also google ...

Try this command: ga('send', 'pageview', newUrl); It's used mainly for tracking pages/content loaded with AJAX but don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with "artificial inflating". You can also skip newUrl parameter.

From what I have seen it looks like Google Webmasters is converting to Google Search Console. I have had google webmasters bookmarked since inception and once I signed up for google search console my webmaster bookmark redirects to search console.

301 redirection is a suggested method if you have almost similar content on the page you are redirecting to. Otherwise google penalizes that and considers that a soft 404, where-in the site is misleading the users. So you can redirect some urls i.e. apple-to-apple mapping, but don't redirect everything to a single home page. Rather add a 410 permanently ...

Redirecting lot of pages which is having good SEO value to a single page website may not be a good idea. Consequently you lose SEO value for the old website. IMO Just use the website for advertising purpose of new website. Place a good banner. Offer something..

Google does not use the rel=alternate links in crawling a website and indexing other language pages. You need some form of linking on your site to access the translated sections of your site so that Google is aware of them, then as Google indexes the translated parts of your site it will automatically identify the languages and list them with the appropriate ...

Google provides a well documented answer to "How a session is defined in Analytics" A session is a group of interactions that take place on your website within a given time frame. For example a single session can contain multiple screen or page views. Case 1: This would start a new session. Case 2: As long as the session has not expired due to ...

Most posts about WordPress robots.txt are totally wrong. You should not block this in robots.txt I suggest to use only this robots.txt for WordPress blog: User-agent: * Disallow: /blog/?s=* If you block WordPress directories like admin and includes and content, then you're going to block CSS, JavaScript and other assets for Googlebot, and that will ...

It's a good question but I think the short answer is "you can't" for the reasons you've described. GA doesn't seem to differentiate by http/https but by site identification which I've personally observed is the same. The only way you're going to differentiate is to have two different domains. For example: www.example.com (for http traffic, your present ...

Analytics allows you to customise channel groupings: You can define brand terms and use these to set up a customised grouping. Then use it to filter your conversions in Analytics. I would suggest doing it on an alternative view to the default - that way you can switch back and forth depending on your needs.

I am not a lawyer. I am not qualified or licensed to give legal advice. That said, here is my opinion: Google has a process for DMCA claims related to it. File a counter notification with Google as described here, towards the bottom of the page. If that doesn't work, you'll have to lawyer up as the DMCA process is kind of broken with respect to things like ...

This will cause issues to your SEO as Googlebot is intelligent enough to identify content that has been greyed out by a modal such as this. If you are able to modify the site one option would be to do away with the modal and replace the quantity and order fields with the postcode selector, when they put in their postcode it will either show an error saying ...

I simply compressed them using gzip: gzip sitemap1.xml My server nginx is enabled to send compressed files. It looks like you're trying to send a double-compressed file and a compressed file. When you gzip a file and host it on a server that is set up to compress and send files, then you basically compressed the same file twice and when one ...

From Webmaster Tools FAQ: Q: The Search Queries feature says that my site ranks #5 for [cookies], but when I search for [cookies] I see it ranking #8 (or I don't see it at all). What gives? A: Several things: Different searchers can see different results, based on things like where they're searching from (geographic differences), personalized ...

We had similar migration and we learned few things while we migrated: Your question 1 We've now redirected all traffic from http to https and set the main page to https in the google analytics tool 1) Even if you switch your complete site from http to https the changes would not get reflected in a single day. It will take sometime may be a month for ...

Unfortunately there is no way currently to limit the number of site links you have on your Google search result entry. You can demote a site link URL from webmaster tools if you have added your web property to the search console. Google automatically decides which URL's to set as site links, and while you can demote a URL from being a site link you can only ...
