Be careful. Most SEO advice stems off of old advice that was just plain wrong when it was written. It seems that much of the SEO world cannot grasp that SEO has become much closer to what it should have been all along. As well, this is a follow the leader industry even as the lemming leap off the cliff. I will give you a quick SEO rundown. For each page, ...

I would recommended either using the www or non-www and stick with it. Set a preferred URL in Webmaster Tools and then 301 to either your www or non-www. The reason for this would be Google would see both the non-www and www sites as two separate websites. If the content is exactly the same, then you could be penalized with duplicate content.

Facebook in general doesn't like to send users out of it, that's why it makes it difficult for the users to leave. I've had that problem in the past, then stopped, then had it again, there seems to be no reason for this. I think Facebook handles the same links differently. For example sharing a link inside a group is not the same as sharing it on a wall or ...

You asked quite a few questions and I suspect you know most of the answers already. So to clear up some confusion, I will address the subject of changing the domain name since this sounds like the new question. If you need more, please let us know. Keywords in domain names mean almost nothing anymore and exact matches rarely happen as a result. That was a ...

The problem is in the source code of your website: <a target="new" href="www.brightstartstudios.com"> That is missing the http://. It should be: <a target="new" href="http://www.brightstartstudios.com"> Google is interpreting what you currently have as a relative link. You need to include the http:// to make it absolute to another site. ...

I have seen this before. It is likely a bad link on a scraper site somewhere and Google followed it. Often the software tools that they use have weird bugs in them that make bad links, references, and user agents and so on. You will see this again. For what it is worth, do not worry about 404 errors that do not exist. These things happen. Just let them a be ...

I did some research for this question and found some interesting thins, such as: Is it a fake crawler? -> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15840440/google-proxy-is-a-fake-crawler-for-example-google-proxy-66-249-81-131-google-c Conclusion by the user: These 'crawlers' are not crawlers but are part of the live website preview used in the Google ...

The source of your problem can be in html or in javascript, and you cannot control the links that other people put on the net too.. And because he finds a page when making a request for it, it indexes it. I miss some information to give answer with code (using a CMS? Other rules in .htaccess, etc…), but here are some ways : Write a permanent redirect in ...

If your site already had 10 million pages indexed, I would say double-check that your site is crawlable and a sitemap is submitted through Google Webmaster Tools. Google does prefer sitemaps for larger sites such as yours. It takes time for Google to notice changes sometimes especially if there is a major change with a ton of pages. It can take as much as ...

You could try and promote the site a bit more and get more inbound links, and/or ensure that your server can cope with a bigger crawl. See below, (but the whole answer linked is worth a read) : There is also not a hard limit on our crawl. The best way to think about it is that the number of pages that we crawl is roughly proportional to your ...

First, I would run some tests on that page using one of the following tools: 1) Google Page Speed 2) WebPageTest.org These two will give you an idea of why your page is slow to respond. It could be the map taking too long to call home or it could be something related to your hosting environment. Usually if its your hosting then the entire site would be ...
