.google actually is a valid top level domain (or top level zone), as is '.youtube'. Google applied for those TLDs a long time ago... successfully as we can now see. Google can now further delegate authority within that zone and com.google and other subdomains (or delegated zones) can become valid and be operated. Here's a news article on zdnet about this ...

The How... In the past few years icann opened up applications for custom GTLD names, you can take a look at application statuses on the ICANN website. Expect to see many new company names as gTLD in the next few years such as .bbc,.foodnetwork,.hilton etc. Sadly these scheme was only for the super rich or big corps with buckets filled with 100 dollar bills. ...

Google seems to put very little weight on how a URL is structured right now. You can confirm this by doing any Google search and looking at the URLs that are ranking. You are just as likely to see any of these styles: Exact match domain: www.keyword-phrase.com Exact keyword path: example.com/keyword-phrase Lots of directories: ...

This related thread, Well structured URLs vs. URLs optimized for SEO , explains it pretty well. My understanding is that the URL will have a slight SEO effect depending on how users tend to search for content on your site but a logic site structure that is easy to update (as websites rarely are static) could perhaps be more valuable than the SEO advantage... ...

Humans can get confused/irritated by deep hierarchies. Be kind to your users. Google Analytics only analyzes (breaks up) the first 4 path parts You know that geographies aren't really hierarchical right? What continent is Turkey in? What state is Texarkana in? You should use a hyphen to break up words in URLs.

I guess there is no reason to assume that Google wouldn’t handle SVGs as value of the image property: Schema.org’s image property expects an image URL (or an ImageObject). SVG is an image format (image/svg+xml). Google does index SVG images. (Of course, we can never be sure; and things might change always.) Generally, the syntax shouldn’t matter, as ...

I agree with closetnoc, but remember one thing. Because you're technically using an API live from a remote computer, the speed and performance of the API may be a factor because it contributes to the overall page speed loading time. Google uses page speed time as a factor in how high you rank in search engines. Slower functioning websites are moved further ...

As John says, this is fake traffic known as "referral spam". This morning I had about 80% of my "traffic" coming from this same domain. Rest assured, you are not paying Google for these clicks. The basic idea behind referral spam is that some hosts will publish their logs or Analytics data publicly, thus creating links and/or text references to their ...

Google supports a separate mobile site. From their mobile webmaster guidelines: There are 3 ways to go mobile: responsive web design, dynamic serving, and separate URLs. ... Separate URLs: Serves different code to each device, and on separate URLs. This configuration tries to detect the users’ device, then redirects to the appropriate page ...

To prevent the page from reloading you simply need to return false; from your runscript function: function runscript(){ .... return false; } That will prevent the link from actually triggering the href when the JavaScript handles the action instead. There will be no jumpiness and the page will not reload. If you can't edit the function itself, ...

As tillinberlin hints at, the reason this page is appearing in the search results is because of your "robots.txt" file, however, not for the reasons given. Basically, your robots.txt file is blocking that URL from being crawled, so Google is unable to see the robots meta tag that prevents the page from being indexed. As stated in the (Google) search results ...

While content created can help with SERP placement in that it is content and when done properly can be weighted for search, use of any Google API is not a ranking factor.

You need to add structured data to your documents. You can either do this by hand, by using services like Google’s Structured Data Markup Helper, or by using CMS/themes/plugins - the only thing that matters is the result, i.e., that your documents contain the structured data which you want to convey about your content. Google recognizes (some parts of) ...

This is what Google calls the "separate URLs" configuration. In the desktop site, you should add a special <link rel="alternate" ...> tag pointing to the corresponding mobile URL. This helps Googlebot discover the location of your site's mobile pages. In the mobile site, you should add a <link rel="canonical" ...> tag pointing to the ...

They won't like it at all. This is duplicate content and exactly what they do not want in their index.

Without being able to see your site, it is hard to comment. Many do not know that title length, either too short or too long, will effect if Google will use the title of not. As well, if the title does not seem to match the search intent, but another content element will such as the h1 tag, then Google may show that. There are several reasons why Google ...

The answer is not completely straightforward. SEO has to be linked to user experience and to the business needs of the site. Don't do things just for SEO purposes, but think of SEO together with UX and architecture. When it comes to URL structure, I always tell clients to keep URLs as similar as possible to the user path through the site. They should show ...

.google is the domain. it's similar to a .guru or .net extension so there's no trickery involved.

I've got the same from lots of spam referral doamins and I want to share a PHP code that you may include in your header.php or something else. With this code you can redirect the spam domain to itself. <?php $spams = array ( "hardcore.anzwers.net", "femmesdenudees.com", "villagedusexe.com", ...

I got the same today. 4webmasters.org seems to be a referrer spam bot. This is fake traffic.

As of right now, this is not possible, but Google Domains has a 5-day return policy, and once returned the domain becomes immediately available to be bought again from other registrars. https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6000754 If this is a critical need, the domain can be returned and bought back from GoDaddy which does offer naked domain ...

I rather suspect you will want to think this through again. It seems to me that you are somewhat backwards in your logic. But not entirely. I get what your concerns are. Here are the options and what values are bought forward. Forwarding the .com to .rs. You will likely gain nothing or very little doing this. The .com site will have no value to pass and ...

I would wrap the tables in a scrollable div. That way they do not affect the 'width' of the page and on mobile it stays at 'device-width'. Something like: <div class="table-wrapper"> <table>...</table> </div> With CSS: .table-wrapper { width: 100%; overflow-x: auto; } For the 'click targets' issue I would suggest adding ...

I had the same problem in a different context. My solution was to set the price of the offer to the lowest price and then specify an instance of PriceSpecification where I state the minimum price that is of EQUAL value to the value in the price tag and then a maximum price. This effectively means that there is a product with price X AND that X price ...
