You can give Google Ripples a try by plugging the destination URL into the following https://plus.google.com/ripple/details?url= But the share may not be public, so you may not be able to see it.

There is no correlation between traffic and PageRank. Google cannot track traffic for most sites and has wisely keep traffic out of the metric mix. Having said that, there are some metrics to pay attention to: search engine result page (SERP) click-through rate (CTR), Bounce Rate (back to SERP), apparent time spent on page, apparent time spent on site. ...

You have to make that trade off based on your business needs. A VPS is shared with others, which means that you are sharing the server resources. The biggest risk here in my opinion lays that you can't control what other people use the server for. This can affect the performance of your application and cause unexplainable bugs that you can't trace back ...

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 ...

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, ...

Over use of a keyword can certainly look spammy. Here is a relevant thread from Webmaster World: A close look at what over optimization really is: Keyword/phrase over usage. Known by seo experts as keyword stuffing. This is also the most commong form of over optimization and also the easiest to recover from. When you are trying to rank for a specific ...

The ideal keywords for what you're asking is Keyword Stuffing. It's basically defined as: Keyword stuffing is considered to be an unethical search engine optimization (SEO) technique, which leads to banning a website from major search engines either temporarily or permanently. Keyword stuffing occurs when a web page is loaded with keywords in the ...

Google's words: When a website is configured to serve desktop and mobile browsers using different URLs, webmasters may want to automatically redirect users to the URL that best serves them. If your website uses automatic redirection, be sure to treat all Googlebots just like any other user-agent and redirect them appropriately. Google recognizes three ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

set up a webmaster for your website, it is recommended by google. It will help you in finding errors in crawling.

The only SEO that might change by dynamically serving an appropriate sized image for the device would be the ranking of that image itself in Google image search. Google is fine with serving different content to different devices as long as you treat Googlebot mobile user agents the same way that you would treat the corresponding mobile device. They have ...

Before your question was clarified, you had said that you had a responsive site. Here is how you would use responsive CSS to change the image based on browser size: @media screen and (max-width:480px) { #myimage { background:url('/smaller-image.png'); } } @media screen and (min-width:481px) { #myimage { ...

It's 320px wide. To figure this out I ran Page Speed Insight (PSI) on a page with ranges of media queries that changed the background color at different breakpoints. After narrowing the width down to within 20px, I added a media query for every width within that 20px range until I found exactly the width PSI was using. The reason this is (arguably) ...

G+ reviews are useful, but I doubt they have a large impact on your ranking in global Google search. They are however useful when people are searching for specific business places - the G+page with the most (positive) reviews is the first search result for nearby business. I am diversifying my reviews across different providers. I have a single webpage ...

Please do not think that the auto-suggestion mechanism is too much of any indication. It is a simple process that has no significant tie to search. But your question is still a good one. Both domain names will perform for search as they should. There may be some confusion for users who are looking for one or the other domain with the auto-suggestion ...

Install the Yoast SEO plugin on both installations and then add the generated sitemaps to your Google Webmasters account. Google Webmasters allows you to submit multiple sitemaps, so it should be pretty straight forward.

There is no benefit or harm from doing this as each page is judged on its own merit. This would be no different if you used a subdomain for each topic (or even gave them all each their own domain). e.g. dogs.mysite.com cats.mysite.com

2048 bit signatures You seem to be mixing up the signed certification to that of the actual encryption rate. Nowadays most good SSL providers will use a NIST recommended 2048 bit signed certification, because SHA2 is becoming the norm and actually recommended encryption rate you should be looking for is 256bit minimal however SHA2 supports 224, 256, 384 or ...

Yes. This is duplicate content. Here's Google's definition of duplicate content: Duplicate content generally refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. Mostly, this is not deceptive in origin This content is the same content just presented in a different way. ...

Here is Google's help document about the links to your site report in Google Webmaster Tools. It states: Not all links to your site may be listed. This is normal. This tool is not meant to be a full report of all the links to your site that Google can find. Rather Google intends it to be a representative sample of the links to your site so that you ...

It will take time for Google to start properly indexing your website, as it is still processing your content and "figuring you out". This kind of behaviour is common with newly-submitted websites. One or two pages are indexed and they show up on Google (mostly, under very specific search queries). Then they disappear. Then they reappear. All of this common. ...

This is a good question and I am not sure anyone really knows the exact limits where duplication counts as duplicate content. The line is kept intentionally fuzzy to discourage this behavior. But let me try and explain a few things that might help you to understand how this works. With the advent of Google Scholar in 2008, Google realized the power of ...

Why don't you put the text www.foo.com/bar in your www.bar.com/page.php?some-parameters-and-utm-codes-etc page? If someone searches for the text www.foo.com/bar your page should rank for it. Perhaps stick a sentence in there somewhere that says "this page is redirected from www.foo.com/bar".

The answer given by Jack Lockyer is absolutely correct. See Google is the number one search engine in the world with about 80% of all searches performed in. So if a user is looking for some info on internet via Google.

Google will customize search results according to a number of different factors. This means that different users will see different results. These factors include, but are not limited to: Your search term (obviously). Previously-visited websites. Country (local search). i.e. Somebody searching for "football" in America will receive a different result than ...

If your only link to these internal pages in one link each from your home page, the problem is that they don't each get enough Pagerank. Pagerank is a measure of the link juice passed to a page from its inbound links. Your home page only has so much Pagerank and it can only pass a very tiny amount when you divide it up between 1,000 links. One of the ...

I find it plausible that Google uses the number of visitors to a website as a ranking factor. Google can get this data (See Can Googlebot read any hosting stats?) Google Analytics: Although Google has said they won't use Google Analytics data for ranking purposes. Google AdSense, Google TagManager, or DFP: These are all 3rd party JavaScript on many web ...

Instead of just showing 1000 links all at once, you could introduce: a pagination feature - showing between 10 and 30 links per page, e.g. 50 pages of 20 links each, or 20 pages of 50 links each. For example: |< < Page 3 of 20 > >| a search box - enabling users to seach for a document using related keywords instead of scrolling through an ...

So after banging our heads off the wall on this one for several more days, we posted in the Google Product forums: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/webmasters/crawling-indexing--ranking/fFo28LFajWo. Within 24 hours the site was appearing in results as expected, so it appears that Google must have manually intervened somehow, because we ...

Google does not always inform site owners about penalties. Some will argue, but there is a reason why the Google Webmaster Tools (GWT) lables this option as Manual Penalties. In the beginning that's exactly what that feature was. But now Google has automated several additional penalties but not all. So please do not count on this feature as the definitive ...

If you want the page to rank and be returned for queries relevant to the scientific papers within it, you will have to change the page structure. Right now, it's a list of 1000 links. That's a useful resource to Googlebot for discovering all the papers you link to, but not a useful page for human visitors. The New York Times has a similar approach for ...

AND and OR are equivalent so it's impossible in that way. More info and examples, you'll find there: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/core/v3/reference#OR But... there is a simple solution. Use ga:sourceMedium to filter out combined specific type of medium with a source. E.g. filter expression: ga:sourceMedium==google / ...

How to add similar sites Google will only associate other sites with your own if theirs many websites that the website is similar too, if your site is unique or badly optimized you will not get a similar.

Using site:domain.com will see if its been completely de-indexed, but that's pretty harsh on the scale of penalties Google can dish out. Others you may want to try are: Seeing if they rank for their brand term. If its uncompetitive and they are not #1, this can be a sign they have had a penalty Check the PageRank to see if its 0, although unreliable ...

JS or POST trunc is the best bet, but an alternate failproof method is at the DB. You can limit it in DB by changing the cell structure to varchar(65) which would only allow 65 characters to be stored there. In phpMyAdmin you find the table, click it, then look for the "structure" tab. Find the col you wanna limit, pick varchar from dropdown, then set it to ...

Thats kinda strange. Im assuming its because v1.0 is the first words on the page and because you put the string inside of a logo div. Normally Google would pull the fallback/alt/title site name from that logo div innards. Since you have no alt+title on the img, its using the next div assuming its in text logo fallback. Google uses class/id names in a manner ...

You can't server-side redirect from http://www.example.com/#!page1 to http://www.example.com/#!page2 because the server doesn't see the fragment ("#!page1"). For AJAX-crawling, you'd need to redirect from the old crawlable URL to the new displayed URL, which will ultimately result in the new crawlable URL being crawled. So in short: 301 redirect from ...

I am not sure there is a way to demote multiple links in Google Webmaster Tools currently. However, there are other methods of achieving the result. I am assuming you have a sitemap for the website? If so I would go change the <priority>0.1</priority>. Doing this helps determine which url to show if multiple pages from a website match a query. My ...

You are talking about branding. This is difficult to do with a non-competitive site and a brand name (company name in this case) that is not recognizable. Ten pages on a site that is 6 months old and only back links from one site until recently is not a good recipe for success. As well, if the brand name is something nonsensical such as wizywerx, it will ...
