What is Fair? To begin with, Google can certainly penalize any sites performance within it's own search engine for what it feels is unacceptable behavior in particular with respect to their ability to earn money as a business. This is their right. It is their property. You do not have to participate in their services and by doing so, they have the right to ...

You have an error in your robots.txt file. On line 11 you have Allow: /, a robots.txt file doesn't say what files and directories you can allow, only what you can disallow. The only supported commands for the robots.txt file are "User-agent" and "Disallow". As the Disallow: /random command is after the invalid command it is possible the Google Searchbot ...

I have them disallowed in my robots.txt... but it doesn't change anything, Google still show them, also on those pages contact, services,... I use Noindex from Yoast. Still no result. So what can I do else? Or maybe I do something wrong If you specifically don't want these pages indexed then you should use the noindex robots meta tag in the head section ...

The problem is that "Home" is not a great title. Your page title should be something like: Kallpachay Summer Camp "Home" is a generic title used by lots of sites. Google is ignoring it because it doesn't describe your site at all. The text that Google is choosing is from a heading tag in the page source: <h2 class="Title ...

Google does not guarantee that Rich Snippets will show up for search results from a particular site even if structured data is marked up and can be extracted successfully according to the testing tool. Quote from Google: How long does it take for rich snippets to be visible? Once you've marked up your site's content, Google will discover it the ...

Midnight is the logic time to end a session - if there has to be a specific time at which each and every session, no matter how long it is open has to be ended. Even if it might seem stupid to count two sessions for a user visiting from 11:55pm - and leaving after 10 minutes. You might want to count visits per day/week/month/year. An in this case there has ...

The exact viewport size of the PageSpeed Insights Checker varies. This is probably to encourage real responsive web design instead of optimization for certain devices. Additionally, if the viewport size was fixed, people might be able to target PageSpeed. You can check What's my Viewport Size? with PageSpeed and see the used viewport size in the ...

I have seen images loaded with this pattern: <img data-src="path/to/image.jpg" class="js-lazy-load" /> get picked up by Google and Google Image Search and others have spotted it too. Since Google now executes javascript on your page, there may be no need to put the actual image into the src attribute. Neglecting a src attribute might lead to a grey ...

Google indexes many sites that don't have a search console account. Deleting the property from search console does not effect whether Googlebot will crawl your site and include it in the search index. If you disallow crawling via robots.txt Googlebot will never be able to see that those pages are 404. Google needs to be able to crawl to see that you have ...

If you're 301 redirecting all traffic from HTTP to HTTPS (and your site canonicals match) then that should be enough. Google Search Console doesn't have an option to set HTTPS as the preferred domain.

These are not Rich Snippets. The first snippet has one-line sitelinks, the second snippet has breadcrumbs.

I am not a lawyer. I am not qualified or licensed to give legal advice. That said, here is my opinion: Google has a process for DMCA claims related to it. File a counter notification with Google as described here, towards the bottom of the page. If that doesn't work, you'll have to lawyer up as the DMCA process is kind of broken with respect to things like ...

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663744?hl=en Each page needs to be its own canonical, with rel= link pointing to next and/or previous pages. This is often mis-interperated as only page 1 needs canonical. Nope, it's every page as its own canonical. In our stores we append " - Page 2" to the end of the page title so that users coming from SERPS ...

What you are referring to is "Google Sitelinks" We only show sitelinks for results when we think they'll be useful to the user. If the structure of your site doesn't allow our algorithms to find good sitelinks, or we don't think that the sitelinks for your site are relevant for the user's query, we won't show them. At the moment, sitelinks are ...

No. You can only demote sitelinks (ask Google not to show them). Google Webmaster Tools > Search Appearance > Sitelinks Question already anwered here: How to control what appears on google search results?

Blanking a page for 200ms such as for a page loader or splash screen is allowed and complies with the terms of AdSense. The only time that blanking the content will be an issue with AdSense is if you are blanking just over the AdSense section.

It used to be possible to get that data for organic search visitors, but it isn't anymore. When a visitor lands on your site, Google sends a "referrer" string. Google used to include the search terms in the referrer, but recently stopped doing so. Now you only get that data about 25% of the time. See http://www.notprovidedcount.com/ which tracks the ...

In my experience, Google can take its time to update the index when it encounters 301 redirects. I've seen it take a week or two after Googlebot crawls a page before the new URL is reflected in the search index. 404 Not Found pages take 24 hours after crawling to be removed from the index. 410 Gone pages are removed from the index within hours. I ...

Unfortunately there is no way to submit a single URL using cURL or anything automated such as what you are suggesting and there is no way to speed up the indexing process for either the content or the images. Neither sitemap submission nor manual URL submission guarantee the content will be added to the index. With the manual fetch it can update the index a ...

The Google AdsBot does not only check one level deep to assess the page and it is not simply for assessing if the page is a good landing page or not. The AdBot has multiple roles, firstly to check the actual landing page for the ad to see what is on the landing page, this improves the quality of ad delivery to end users by more accurately targeting ads to ...

Aside from setting the "Crawl Control" settings within Bing Webmaster tools you could add a crawl-delay: directive to your robots.txt file. Bing supports whole number values ranging from 1 – 20. Each number maps to the length in seconds of time slices in which we divide a 24-hour crawl cycle. In this context, the value 1 means you allow us a ...
