Google cares not one whit. Really. All non-alphanumeric characters are essentially ignored. From a programmers point of view, the URI is parsed and indexed using word boundaries and anything that is not a word, is ignored. It is that simple. If you asked which one I personally prefer using, I would say - over +. I think it is more human friendly and the ...

You can arm yourself against this by using the rel=author meta tag for all your content then you are claiming it as your own. If people should copy your content, they will get "outed" with the engines. It comes down to building Author Ranking. Check also this one: Google Confirms Author Ranking; What Does That Mean To You?.

There must not be a possible word limit for a particular page to identify it as soft 404. The ideal cases when such issues are reported by Google are: When a dynamic template with no content (due to some incorrect parameters) returns 200.

However, there are steps that you can take to prevent your content from being copied. This is especially useful on text content. Do not show the content to everyone. This is not universally ...

This does not look like a problem for you to solve. It appears that you do not have malware, adware, or a virus on your system. You may not like these entries in your log of course. You can likely filter them in what ever software you use to analyze your web traffic. This appears to be coming from your users as they access your site. It is thought to be an ...
