Error 404 can actually mean your site is WORKING... Not BROKEN! It's commonly mistaken by a lot of webmasters that error 404 means something is broken and the site must be fixed! when in reality 50% of the time errors 404 occur when a user or bot requests a URL that no longer exists or never has existed meaning a 404 return means everything is working as ...

Microsoft does support cross domain sitemaps but with a bunch of caveats. The sitemap can be hosted on a different domain, but only if it is specified in robots.txt and all the URLs in it must point to the current domain. If you want to submit this set of sitemaps to Bing, you will either have to host them all on your own domain name, or list them ...

The third graph (green - Time spent downloading a page) is worrying to me. It appears that around the date that you lost traffic, your website went from serving the page in a third of a second to almost 4 seconds. If just the page request took that long, than the all the images, JavaScript, and CSS could have easily pushed the page load time above 10 ...

This happens when Google is re-fetching your website pages and trying to do in-dept analysis of your website. If you are not uploading the new content on your website then the problem is related to the code {PHP /HTML etc} of your website. Ask your developer to fix all the errors that Google has rectified.

Hope im understanding your questions right, we will use one of our dormant domains as example and see how it lives in regards to your questions: Are GWT search queries created even if the site has no or very little backlinks? Yes they seem to be. I see queries data in GWT and if the search is specific enough, SERPS. Looking at a site that was a spare domain ...

Yes. You should have a different sitemap.xml for each sub site (uk/us/ca/de) and then have a main sitemap for your default site which does not duplicate the items in the other sitemaps. Domics answer is 100% correct, but again make sure that you dont repeat results in your sitemap. A word about sitemaps. If your site is less than 100 pages dont really ...

Indirectly, yes: Create a page with links to all the URLs you'd like re-crawled (like a sitemap) and add that to your website.* Submit the URL to that page to Fetch as Google, selecting Desktop as the fetching strategy, as detailed here: Use Fetch as Google. Once Fetch as Google is complete, and within 4 hours time, from the Fetches Table next to the ...

Although google has this data, I am not sure if their ga.js google analytical JavaScript is capturing this information. the web browser must have JavaScript turned on to execute the Ga.js the referrer web site must be passed on...

Although there are some great answers here, there is one explanation missing, how PageRank is actually calculated. In the simplest form, PageRank is an algorithm that is calculated on the number and quality of links that are linking to your site. The higher the PR of the sites linking to a page, the higher the PR should be. More info here: PageRank from ...

First things first. I am going to assume that your site is new or less than a year old. Often the very foundation of good SEO is ignored choosing to jump into that nitty-gritty of on-page, off-page, backlinks, and other SEO efforts that are important but of secondary importance. I will cover the foundation of SEO which all other SEO efforts rely. It is only ...

Q: My site's PageRank has gone up / gone down / not changed in months! A: Don't worry. In fact, don't bother thinking about it. We only update the PageRank displayed in Google Toolbar a few times a year; this is our respectful hint for you to worry less about PageRank, which is just one of over 200 signals that can affect how your site is crawled, ...

If the page is gone, then let it 404 error. If you can, then I suggest doing a 410 gone, but if there are quite a few, then it may not be worth the effort. NEVER 301 redirect a page that no longer exists unless you are redirecting to another relevant page. This should be done where ever possible for the sake of the user. Here is what happens: Using Google ...

You can perform a 301 redirect for the 404 pages to their relevant equivalent on the new site, or just to the home page. You should be more concerned with human visitors. The web crawlers will eventually stop crawling the old pages.

It means essentially the same thing- of all the searches that resulted in an impression for the page (verses search term as in your example), an average position of all of the SERP positions is displayed. I know that sounds the same as average search query position but it is not. One is searches by term and an impression regardless of the page, and the other ...

I’d say it typically makes sense (mainly for a good user experience) to keep pages about products that are out of stock, whether temporary or permanently. (See schema.org’s OutOfStock and Discontinued.) So when keeping these pages, what to do with your schema.org markup? First to clarify, when Google reports a schema.org error, it doesn’t necessarily mean ...

You can use binary search to figure out which URLs are not indexed: Split your sitemap in half into two smaller sitemaps Submit each of those sitemaps Repeat these steps for each sitemap that Google reports isn't fully indexed until you are down to a sitemap with just one unindexed URL in it.

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.

No. Just remove the pages that are no longer part of the old site. Search engines periodically re-crawl the sitemaps so there is no need to delete it. Only the obsolete content needs to go.
