Note that syntaxes like Microdata and RDFa don’t annotate the HTML, they use the HTML just as a carrier. After parsing the Microdata/RDFa, it doesn’t matter anymore which markup was used. If your two properties with the same content belong to the same item, it’s not useful to have the additional one, as it doesn’t add anything new (but it’s not forbidden ...

As noted in this article, having duplicate content will result in bad SEO performance and possibly getting a page ranked so low it cannot be found by users. A critical aspect of SEO is quality content and you cannot maintain a good organic SEO position with duplicate content. Changing both content and HTML structure will be important to having both sites ...

Search engines always hate duplicates if You have duplicate itemprop the bot must be confused to take which one for your markup result so avoid that markup once on the page

If your talking about Google the short answer will be yes, but not by the format but the size of the file or embed code that will make your site faster. An SVG if it is not very complex has much less size than an image, and this will reward you in search engines.

A site needs to exist for a while and get popular before Google will recommend it for its brand name and URL. The good news is that Google is indexing your site and will show it in search results in "verbatim" mode: This indicates that Google knows about the website and will show it if you say "I really mean what I'm searching for, don't show me synonyms ...

24 hours is too little to suffice as cache control :) Images should never change without their name also changing, so you can set that easily to a year (or a month if you feel more comfortable with that). Think from the users point of few, how often do they come around? Is it reasonable that they come back after a week? If so, how likely is it that the ...

Try using http://www.google.com/analytics/, they'll provide a code spinet to insert on the head section of your website.

You really don't need to. Crawlers will find you on their own. However, if you would like to help that process a bit then include your domains in Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. Both will provide you with a number of "helpful" stats on your site as well. Also, make sure that you have an XML sitemap on your site. It will assist the crawlers ...

I read a Google article saying that if you block the robots from reading the pages then Google doesn't crawl them but also does not know that they are no longer there - prolonging the pages from disappearing from your Webmaster Tools report

I agree with closetnoc, but remember one thing. Because you're technically using an API live from a remote computer, the speed and performance of the API may be a factor because it contributes to the overall page speed loading time. Google uses page speed time as a factor in how high you rank in search engines. Slower functioning websites are moved further ...

While content created can help with SERP placement in that it is content and when done properly can be weighted for search, use of any Google API is not a ranking factor.

You need to add structured data to your documents. You can either do this by hand, by using services like Google’s Structured Data Markup Helper, or by using CMS/themes/plugins - the only thing that matters is the result, i.e., that your documents contain the structured data which you want to convey about your content. Google recognizes (some parts of) ...

As tillinberlin hints at, the reason this page is appearing in the search results is because of your "robots.txt" file, however, not for the reasons given. Basically, your robots.txt file is blocking that URL from being crawled, so Google is unable to see the robots meta tag that prevents the page from being indexed. As stated in the (Google) search results ...

Short answer: robots.txt is a recommendation search engines may cherish – but they don't have to. So whatever you intend to do – don't rely on robots.txt – same applies to robots meta tags. If you really want those pages not indexed / not to be opened through search engine result pages, then you should probably add a 301 redirect or the like for everybody ...

I see some problems. Starting now, get rid of the keywords meta tag. Bing will use it against you if it contains the same word numerous times, and google will at best ignore it. Next, work on your meta description tag, and make it so it doesn't keep repeating the same word. Also, try to make the characters limited to letters and numbers, commas, and dashes ...

Basically, Google cache should not be used as a means of hiding your visits to a webpage. Likely, any website focused on users will use CSS and/or JavaScript to some extent. The best option would be to use external files for those scripts. Google does not save these external resources as part of the cache preview. Therefore, yes, every time you view a ...

This is what Google calls the "separate URLs" configuration. In the desktop site, you should add a special <link rel="alternate" ...> tag pointing to the corresponding mobile URL. This helps Googlebot discover the location of your site's mobile pages. In the mobile site, you should add a <link rel="canonical" ...> tag pointing to the ...

They won't like it at all. This is duplicate content and exactly what they do not want in their index.

Yes, definitely include them in your main sitemap. You still want your product URLs indexed as fast as possible, and a sitemap will help with that.

To prevent the page from reloading you simply need to return false; from your runscript function: function runscript(){ .... return false; } That will prevent the link from actually triggering the href when the JavaScript handles the action instead. There will be no jumpiness and the page will not reload. If you can't edit the function itself, ...

Without being able to see your site, it is hard to comment. Many do not know that title length, either too short or too long, will effect if Google will use the title of not. As well, if the title does not seem to match the search intent, but another content element will such as the h1 tag, then Google may show that. There are several reasons why Google ...

I had the same problem in a different context. My solution was to set the price of the offer to the lowest price and then specify an instance of PriceSpecification where I state the minimum price that is of EQUAL value to the value in the price tag and then a maximum price. This effectively means that there is a product with price X AND that X price ...

Include just the last part of the URI then use canonicals to trunc out the middle levels for bots. The shortened URI [with identifier string if needed] does not have to be visible for avg human use on the site, although they may see it clicking in from SERPS. This shorter [identifier] URI really isnt a big deal IMO since it will revert back to human-friendly ...

Humans can get confused/irritated by deep hierarchies. Be kind to your users. Google Analytics only analyzes (breaks up) the first 4 path parts You know that geographies aren't really hierarchical right? What continent is Turkey in? What state is Texarkana in? You should use a hyphen to break up words in URLs.

The answer is not completely straightforward. SEO has to be linked to user experience and to the business needs of the site. Don't do things just for SEO purposes, but think of SEO together with UX and architecture. When it comes to URL structure, I always tell clients to keep URLs as similar as possible to the user path through the site. They should show ...

Google seems to put very little weight on how a URL is structured right now. You can confirm this by doing any Google search and looking at the URLs that are ranking. You are just as likely to see any of these styles: Exact match domain: www.keyword-phrase.com Exact keyword path: example.com/keyword-phrase Lots of directories: ...

This related thread, Well structured URLs vs. URLs optimized for SEO , explains it pretty well. My understanding is that the URL will have a slight SEO effect depending on how users tend to search for content on your site but a logic site structure that is easy to update (as websites rarely are static) could perhaps be more valuable than the SEO advantage... ...

Of course everyone knows that on 21st of April there is a new update coming up but I believe that none of the non-mobile friendly sites will be penalised.

Google supports a separate mobile site. From their mobile webmaster guidelines: There are 3 ways to go mobile: responsive web design, dynamic serving, and separate URLs. ...

Google does not penalize anyone for not being mobile-friendly. You may gain a few "points" if you are but they do not penalize you. Responsive layout is a technique to adapt pages to devices and not a search engine optimization. However, it is one of the ways to accomplish the goal of a mobile friendly site. Since you redirect people to your mobile ...

I guess there is no reason to assume that Google wouldn’t handle SVGs as value of the image property: Schema.org’s image property expects an image URL (or an ImageObject). SVG is an image format (image/svg+xml). Google does index SVG images. (Of course, we can never be sure; and things might change always.) Generally, the syntax shouldn’t matter, as ...

.google actually is a valid top level domain (or top level zone), as is '.youtube'. Google applied for those TLDs a long time ago... successfully as we can now see. Google can now further delegate authority within that zone and com.google and other subdomains (or delegated zones) can become valid and be operated. Here's a news article on zdnet about this ...

I'm gonna assume you have two versions of your website from one URL and the desktop version has been hacked. Check your .htaccess file and look for lines that detect for mobile devices. If they are present, then there will be redirection going on if the device in question isn't of the correct type. Code to look for can be found by selecting any of the ...
