That's a very bad idea and your site will suffer in the organic search rankings. For one, Google does have image recognition abilities and so your assumption that the bot can't "view" the image is wrong. And two, the algorithm does render pages to decide whether they are not mobile friendly and if your pages are delivering different content to users and to ...

You're better off creating a multilingual sitemap, just to avoid any source of confusion. The format you have shown is correct. In fact, you could even drop the hreflang declarations in your page sections and just use the declaration within the sitemap. The Official Webmaster Tools blog explains the advantages of using the multilingual sitemaps ...

I am not sure about how Google might treat an Italian site, however, I rather suspect the process is the same. So I will continue. In your case, Google likely does not like the title as provided in the title tag. It is important that the title tag is not too short or too long and that the title tag be carefully crafted especially when using the pipe ...

The problem you have is with your responsive design, and more specific - your breaking points. You can easily see that your website actually look exactly like the screenshot on 1024px width (see http://responsivetest.net/#u=http://www.wetravel.co.il/|1024|768|1) or just minimize your browser's width, you'll see the breaking point eventually). Google test the ...

You can check the full path of your goals in the User Flow report (however it's in reverse - from the landing page to the conversion). Use the "Converters" segment to refine your report.

Simple answer, only slightly difficult solution- robots.txt. It is the fastest and most effective way of removing a page from the index. You can also noindex the page, but that depends upon having Google revisit the page. The robots.txt is much much quicker though nothing is real-time. Google will revisit the robots.txt after 24 hours has expired in ...

As is is clear that the pipe character holds special meaning in this situation, I would suggest using a substitute in your page title markup, such as the light vertical bar ❘ (&#10072, U+2758), or the double vertical line ‖ (&#8214, U+2016).

In short: In using a CDN you are basically making identical copies of your content across the network. Although a CNAME with the same domain (but different subdomain as in cdn.domain.tld) definitely helps and much likely will not trigger duplicate content issues. A good way to avoid duplicate content issues is to make use of the "rel canonical" tag. By ...

Going by your example, I will guess that google chooses the word "contact" over "hi let's talk" as a title because your page probably has the word "contact" more than once and it sounds more professional. But if you want a good chance at having your title as the title in search results, then you want to make it related to your page. This means having ...

If the links in question are doing something illegal in connection with the product name, you can try to file a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) report against the people who manage the URLs the links point to and/or file a lawsuit against them. Then again, it depends on how illegal the act is to begin with. If you did invent the product name, it ...

In your last example, I'm not sure this will create a benefit in your sitemap: <xhtml:link rel="alternate" hreflang="x-default" href="https://www.domain.com/what-we-do" /> This is because I don't think "x-default" is a standard language. And besides, you provided the default URL here: <loc>https://www.domain.com/what-we-do</loc> It ...

Impressions for link ads are different from regular ad impressions (and lot of people I know get confused because of it). An impression for a link ad is counted when someone click on a link ad and then is shown plenty of related ads in a separate page. You will make money only if the user click again on any of these ad (may be some without click for CPM ...

Google does not appear to index text in .svg image files. I have created an SEO experiment for you. I: put three paragraphs of text in an SVG image saved that as a .svg file embedded the image in a new web page using <img src= waited a week to see what Google indexed Google did not index the text in the image at all. The text on the new page ...

That is likely due to referral spam. A spammer is likely using your Google Analytics tracking ID so that activities on their own website end up getting recorded in your own Analytics account. To check, assign "hostname" as your secondary dimension when checking your data and you will see which website is actually the culprit. To get rid of your spam data ...
