When a new bug is found, in this case in wordpress, the first thing hackers will do is try to find vulnerable sites that use wordpress. A good way of doing it is trying to find wp-admin pages on google. Maybe will even use automated tools to find-and-exploit sites based on that. Avoiding that would be the main security reason for doing it. If you have no ...

Security issue? Doubt it. It just makes your site more visible to people who likes to attack wordpress sites. Other than the visibility everything is the same, security through obscurity is not something you should rely on anyway. Useless? Definitely. There is no reason to allow indexing of your admin login in your site. You don't want your users finding a ...

Google doesn't want to index non-content pages including admin pages and pages that ask you to login. Putting wp-admin in robots.txt is better for SEO because it will usually prevent the page from being indexed. It is possible that an attacker will do a Google for all sites that have wp-admin in the URL. Keeping that page on your site out of the Google ...

When you have multiple GA trackers on the page, you need to make sure that you assign a unique name to each tracker, so that whatever hits you send will be sent to the correct GA property. For example, if you send in an event hit and you haven't named your trackers, that event hit could potentially be sent to both properties because they have the same name ...

It shouldn't cause a problem at all. I think you're applying human thinking to a computer problem. If the pages are different then analytics will treat them as separate chains of links. No issue whatsoever. Of course the actual issue is with someone looking at the different reports / goals in 6 months remember the differences, and report correctly back to ...

How would adsense treat that ever-so-important photo above the fold? Does it treat it as nothing more than a null character? no, your image above the fold has its own physical size, namely the height, which Google can recognize. Google will be able to recognize the trick too, if you would try to set something like img {height:0;} to push the ad block ...

Surely you can. make a Google query info:www.your-site.com/your-page.html - if the page URL is indexed, it will appear in index and you will see it, if not - not.
