Few questions:- Any drop in traffic and ranks? Since when have you started noticing the drop in the number of indexed pages with the site: operator? Any message from Google in the search console? The site: operator is supposed to show the approximate number of pages indexed in Google. However, do note that if your pages have thin content or are deep down ...

...with other web sniffing tools the HTTP HEADERS are correct. Tell the programmers of those web sniffing tools that they need to reprogram those tools because I looked at the HTML source code of your page and things need changing. What can I do?

If your site shows Google what is basically advertising content that is unrelated to the actual site, you've been hacked. If you have enough knowledge of WordPress and also server security to detect and clean the hack, go for it. If you are at all uncertain about how to do this, hire a professional security service to do it for you such as Sucuri or ...

I suggest you add meta title and meta description for every page. It will give you more control over what is displayed in SERP. Sometimes Google will alter your titles and descriptions but having those meta tags should help.

There is no way to tell Googlebot to forget about something it has crawled. Your only recourse is to: Fix the problem with your HTML. Redirect any faulty URLs that were caused by the problem. Wait until Googlebot has recrawled all the pages with faulty HTML and all the bad links that those pages might have generated. NOARCHIVE prevents Google from ...

Here is an article about this where they explain how to implement it. Show full images on your own site, but only show the watermarked version in Google image search. The basic technique is to choose which version to serve (watermarked or clean) based on HTTP Referer and User Agent. If the HTTP Referer is from your own site, show the clean version. If ...

There are several things you can do to improve your site's visibility in a geographical / linguistic area. First, you should add hreflang tags to your html code. Hreflang annotations are used by Google as signs for the intended linguistic and geographical targeting of the content. Two good sources of information: The hreflang Tags Generator Tool Using ...

As the poster before me correctly said, meta tags may help google to better rank your site for the targeted audience. Anyways, to get the site locally ranked it also helps to have a country specific domain but with the new TLDs such as .cloud its a help but not a requirement. Same for IP / CDN, the location of your hosting might matter, but whats more ...

I've been thinking of ways to try to expand the number of visitors and I noticed the commercial "body armor" market gets a lot of traffic. So is it viable to make an SEO leap from armor in the medieval sense to armor in the modern sense of body armor? Why not combine the two instead of switching? After all, you say you have 6-7k visitors a month about ...


2

It will very likely dilute how your site is found and can ultimately effect bounce rates when users click on links for antique armor and find something else negatively effecting how a site performs. SERP CTR and bounce rates are a major factor. It would be too fuzzy differentiating the difference between the two. I would advise against it. Go for another ...

One, two or even a few months sometimes isn't enough time for Google to update its index with changes in a website and start displaying results in the way the website owner is desiring. And it's not only time what is needed, but thorough SEO work in all aspects. Now, regarding Google showing main links pages for a certain website like in your screenshot, it ...

I have looked into the history of gymweb.it and it looks rather sketchy, perhaps its a site that has not been maintained and has fallen into some sort of typical botnet type injection. Download all files directly from the server and do a recursive search through all of them for the term "gymweb". Rip your database and do a search through that too as you ...

The main problem you're having is that you expect numbers put out by Google to be accurate, but they aren't. This isn't specific to Google, it's true for all major web search engines. The total result count is just an estimate, and it's easy to see: http://searchengineland.com/why-google-cant-count-results-properly-53559 The numbers published by Webmaster ...

I would recommend checking the bounce rate of the referral website. If it is above 90% then the traffic that you are receiving from this site is fake traffic. Many spam website sent auto generated traffic to the website to create attention. When I visited the website shown in the image, it seems the domain is expired. If this is the case then try to filter ...

Someone is trying to manipulate your URLs and getting away with them because of a flaw in your original PHP script. Your script is allowing anything entered between /directory/ and /index.php to be rewritten (through your mod_rewrite rules) and 'allowing' it to actually return a valid page instead of a 404. So if I am your competitor or just a malicious ...

Having something appended to your URLs in search console is usually either a malformed link on your site (in this case your twitter link probably), or Googlebot being dumb and interpreting a JavaScript string like var="tag/tutorials/news@example.com"; as something that the JS could use as a link, maybe. The first would effect users, but not the second. ...

This is not necessary. The latest ad code uses the "async" attribute on the script tag, which means it does not block rendering or delay loading of your site. The tag that loads the script looks like this: <script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> If you are loading multiple ads per page you should ...

Your website is not yet indexed by Google. You find that out using the following search operator site:yourwebsite.com To expedite the index process, consider creating an XML sitemap and submit it to Google through the Search Console.

You can provide data that will be indexed, but this means you have to explicitly list all values (you can keep them hidden). While using meta elements for this purpose is possible, Google will only index up to 50 meta tags, so this will not work for "about a hundred different specific part numbers". (They don’t document that it would be possible to provide ...

One thing you should try is using the domain instead of a relative slash / for home. But if that doesn't fix it, yes there is an error. Google shouldn't be displaying home like that, it takes the form of domain. Why? Who knows. But here is what we do, this could change at any time: If you properly mark up your breadcrumbs with the older data-vocab syntax ...

Good question! I'd never thought of attempting to redefine/rename the root. The root directory is assumed to be the domain itself. By defining it with a link, you've caused it to create a new directory 'Home' that is assuming the same position as the root. This has created both the assumed root and the 'Home' directory in the structure and the situation you'...

I know this old but I just came across it. If you're using WordPress.org, you could use Google Breakdance add-in. If you're using asp.net, you'll have to convert the Apache script to URL Rewrite XML. However, I've been using the IIS method and I think Google now no longer like it and have penalised my site. I've got back to the old image hotlinking ...

It would seem there was a Manual Action required as suggested by Dan. It had also gone through a recent change but doubt that change was the cause. The reason for all the images to have gone is because Google doesn't like the way I've implemented the HotLink protection scheme. The scheme similar to what Fansshare.com does to protect against Google from ...

This article suggests that Google will cache content loaded by an onscroll event: http://dinbror.dk/blog/lazy-load-images-seo-problem/ Admittedly that is for images, but I can't see why it wouldn't work for other content. I would test though.

Based on a strict reading of Google's webmaster guidelines and definitions it is considered cloaking, it may not have been designed to present alternate content to Google over the users but as it has that effect Google needs to treat it as such.


2

Per Google's definition, this could be considered cloaking. It really depends on how much the content varies and if it's consistent otherwise. There's bound to be some give but Google is the only one who can tell you if you've crossed it. Check Search Console for any Manual Actions.

There's a large number of possible reasons for this. Here's a few possible factors: All stats are estimated unless you're on Analytics Premium and pulling the full data. Google takes a sample and extrapolates. It's possible to invalidate records for a count if they have an unset field. Perhaps there were 841 aggregated clicks but one of the criteria for a ...

The AdsBot crawler with user agent AdsBot-Google (+http://www.google.com/adsbot.html), is part of AdWords not AdSense. It is supposedly used for checking landing page content to determine quality score. This bot appears to also visit pages that are not ad landing pages, including pages with no ads on them, no ads to them, and no links to them. Based on the ...
