robots.txt can block JavaScript files from Googlebot. http://www.robotstxt.org/ has more information about how to construct a robots.txt file. You could put your JavaScript that shows the password into an external JavaScript file (called showlists.js): $(document).ready(function(){ showLists(); }); Call that JavaScript file in the page head: ...

I created a cloaking function in JavaScript: function isBot(){ return /bot|crawl|slurp|spider/i.test(navigator.userAgent) } Then I use that function to either show the passwords onload, or to show a message saying why no passwords were generated: if (isBot()){ $('#isbot').show(); } else { showLists(); } Now when I use the "Fetch and Render" ...

If you prevent robots from indexing content, these websites are not considered as duplicate versions, and Google will ignore them. In fact, noindex is usually applied to "print version" of web articles. That's the most similar scenario. In other scenarios, I would suggest to use redirection or canonicalization. For the ads: it depends. You need to read the ...

Google usually only shows the meta description if it contains the keywords for which the user searched. You must be using the company name in the meta description you wrote, but you are probably not using the other keywords for which you are searching in the meta description. For example. Your site could be called "Bob's Beach Toys". And your meta ...

If you had it longer, then you should be able to have full rights to the domain. Just make sure you get proof from ICANN indicating how long you have your domain registered to your name, and if possible, ...

Is there a way you can take advantage of iframes? Google is able to just look at the source of an iframe, but it can't crawl an iframe directly into the parent page, as far as I know. So, the iframe source should be noindex.

It won't as long as they resolve. You are doing a 310 redirect allows these page requests to be satisfied. If you do not want the pages in the index, you need to either 404 or 410 these pages. 404 is the default error for a web server, however, it would take longer to remove from the search engine index. This is because technically a 404 indicates that the ...

I suspect you are simply misunderstanding the "renders the pages" phrase. Googlebot stills views pages as raw text, it doesn't see pages as "text rendered into pixels". Googlebot is running the javascript/css/whatever it finds to discover(aka "render") text that was previously not visible to it in the raw html text source (ie because it was pulled in via ...
