you can add this code to the function.php in your theme and it will solve the hatom problems. //mod content function hatom_mod_post_content ($content) { if ( in_the_loop() && !is_page() ) { $content = '<span class="entry-content">'.$content.'</span>'; } return $content; } add_filter( 'the_content', 'hatom_mod_post_content'); //add ...

Q1: The URLs of the 404 pages in the Webmaster Tools all bear the mistake and will never be available at the new site. I marked them as fixed in the tools. Do I need to do something about that, like 301 rewrite them with a condition to fix the error? You might want to redirect them to a page telling users these pages are not available anymore, rather than ...

Redirecting to the new site will not hurt SEO if your only issues are poor SEO and low PageRank. Poor SEO is just a design issue and doesn't have a negative connotation other than hurting your site's ability to have its pages rank well. Low PageRank is just due to having few links pointing to your pages. That's not a negative SEO signal. So you should ...

They malware might have infected the .htaccess on your site to redirect, identity.php to something else without ever touching the file system. Or it could be a hack into the PHP code to capture calls to identity.php and do something wit it. I would recommend your best course of action is to download the whole site codebase & do a search for identity.php ...

You can submit your website right away. Just make sure that pages which are not ready have a robots meta tag set to noindex,noarchive. When a page is ready, remove its robots meta tag. You can already put all your pages in a sitemap.xml too to make sure web crawlers already know about your pages and revisit them from time to time. However, search engines ...

There's no harm in making the site public with a holding page including details of launch. This is quite common and will have no negative repercussions when you do open the whole site up to everyone.

You can submit the site to search engines before your site is ready in order to set the domain age as older as possible (positive effect on SEO in the long term). However, I wouldn't do it 6 months before. 1 or 2 months before the launch could be a good compromise. Think about creating the buzz about your site during this period and try to launch your site ...

Having each sub folder (/uk /de /fr ) as its own entitity in webmaster tools will allow you to target that region directly. This tells google, when someone in the UK is searching for widgets, here is a site which is tailored for that audience. As for Hreflang tags, only use them when the content is almost identical but the language switches. For for ...

You can add Landing Page metric (ga:landingPagePath) to e-commerce report in GA. I think it will resolve a problem fastest.

I'd use the setting right away -- but make sure you have the 301 redirects in place ASAP too (especially for the most important pages). This setting helps us to confirm that you really want to transfer everything (all signals that we've collected over the years) over to the new domain. It just speeds things up a tiny bit, essentially. In addition to the ...

Google Webmaster Tools index count will fluctuate constantly especially with dynamic sites or those using common platforms such as forum software. The best way to tell how many of these URL's Google are dropping from their index is to use the site operator in Google's web search, for example:- site: example.com/forum This will show you all indexed URL's ...

Unfortunately, the fastest way to remove pages from the Google index, you abandoned. There is nothing wrong with using the robots.txt file to remove pages from the Google index. Having switched to noindex, it will take some time for the spider to fetch all of the pages and update the index. The speed will depend upon the freshness of your site in the past. ...

If the website is going to take 1 year to transfer to a new domain, then obviously that's potentially 1 year of not having the new site SEO'd. If the website transfer is very quick, then it's an easy choice! I think it's about finding the balance. You mention link structure changing so I guess you may feel you don't have any SEO to save because of the total ...

You have not added the tag in the correct place, it should be with the <head> </head> tags. This could be the reason why it isnt tracking. Also if your are using the Tag Assistant plugin for Chrome, it should have pointed this error out to you, did it not? Have you double checked you have pasted in the correct code? Sounds obvious but had a ...

It might take a while for it to update your status. Have you tried going to your Real-Time Tab - Overview (it right above Audience Tab) and see if you are capturing hits? If you see hits then you are good to go. In some cases tracking code status doesn't update ever but data gets sent to your property. Note: if you have a filter set to exclude your own IP ...

What I ended up guessing is that Google considers the time taken for crawling a page and extrapolate it, to look at the maximum number of pages it could have crawled within that time limit. On instances where my page is incredibly fast, the values go up and on other days, it comes down.

I'd probably run a crawler to collect all the URLs of your 1.5 site (a sitemap generator, or link checker should do this for you). When the site is live, Joomla 2.5 has a redirect manager (under components) which lists all the URLs which have thrown a 404. You should use the redirect manager to set up 301s on all the pages you know have changed. If you ...

It is a common mistake that people worry about 404 errors found in Google Webmasters Tool for pages that do not exist. This is a natural functioning of a website and search engine and therefore nothing to fix. If the page is gone, then a 404 error is appropriate. What frustrates people in these cases is that they feel that Google is still trying to access ...

It's either an article or an event. Not both. If the purpose of the content is to promote the event, it's an event. If the article describes the event but isn't there to promote it (i.e. it's news coverage), it's an article.

Google webmasters will tell you the source of the error.... if this is simply pointing to a file in a directory, you may consider preventing anyone, including Google from browsing that folder and find such files, this can be done by creating a default php file in that folder: Step 1- create a file called: index.php step 2- add the following code to it: ...

This should work... RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} semalt\.semalt\.com [NC] RewriteRule .* - [F,L] ...will force a 403 error. Otherwise... RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} semalt\.semalt\.com [NC] RewriteRule .* http://www.gosomewhereelse.com [R,L] ... will send them some where else. (just change the domain name please.)

I am going through something similar though my situation is slightly different. If all of your on-site links are correct and any sitemaps that you have are correct (and I would check them), then I would suspect that these are coming from links made by scraper spammer sites. Your one example is a bit odd though. The cat_url=custom-cms, unless something your ...

I dont have a definitive resource as an answer but from my own personal experience this happens if you tell google to crawl your pages manually by say fetching as google or submitting all of your pages to index "including linked pages" so if you have 300 pages and several of those pages have links to all 300 google might crawl all of them a couple times ...

Google webmaster tools is not updated real time. It takes some time for Google to re index, understand the changes, process them and bring it to webmaster tools. So your best bet in this regard will be to make sure that those errors don't exist now, and wait. It looks like you have already waited an year for this. Google webmaster tools dashboard is ever ...

A sitemap is the right call for you. Without the sitemap, the crawler will not know that those pages exist. Even if you remove the sitemap from GWT, the pages will remain in index. But since those pages are not linked from anywhere, it is highly unlikely that Google will index those pages again. Removing the sitemap will ensure that the 40 new pages that ...

See my answer here: Would my SEO be impacted if I migrated posts from Tumblr to a hosted WordPress solution? In short I would make sure you fill out the Change of Address form in WMT (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/83106?hl=en) and you resubmit your sitemap from your old site (so Google picks up the 301's), then submit the sitemap for the new ...

If you are the owner of the URL shortener, then you can do the following things: Use a 301 redirect instead of a 302 redirect. If you host the URLs, serve a rel=noindex in the header of the pages served through the shortened URL. Add a canonical URL tag to the header of the real page. Use rel=nofollowwherever you are using a shortened URL that uses a ...
