Interest in anything waxes and wanes. Every bucket can only be filled so far. Popular television programs gain a first time audience but some of them find they're not interested and don't come back. All of those apply to you.

Asking for indexing to Google by submitting a sitemap file or putting some links from other websites to your own doesn't necessarily correlate with your traffic. Even if fresh content can influence rankings, it doesn't neccesarily increase your traffic when new pages are indexed (especially if your site and/or your new pages are not well SEO-optimized). A ...

You can't ask crawler the frequency with which it should crawl your page. Though you can define the change frequency in your sitemap but that too does not ensure any defined behavior. Suppose your sitemap had 100 links and not it has 200 links. The crawling of delta of these links depends on the actual content change on your pages, the domain authority of ...

Google index sites which have robot.txt file in their webroot or site root. Check your robot.txt file, also recheck if your .htaccess file if it's blocking external crawlers. Also, Google indexes sites within hours, 24 hours in most of the cases. Keep your site very lightweight just to be sure, trim file names, minify heavy Javascripts and if it's relevant, ...

I am not a lawyer. I am not qualified or licensed to give legal advice. That said, here is my opinion: Google has a process for DMCA claims related to it. File a counter notification with Google as described here, towards the bottom of the page. If that doesn't work, you'll have to lawyer up as the DMCA process is kind of broken with respect to things like ...

https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663744?hl=en Each page needs to be its own canonical, with rel= link pointing to next and/or previous pages. This is often mis-interperated as only page 1 needs canonical. Nope, it's every page as its own canonical. In our stores we append " - Page 2" to the end of the page title so that users coming from SERPS ...

It used to be possible to get that data for organic search visitors, but it isn't anymore. When a visitor lands on your site, Google sends a "referrer" string. Google used to include the search terms in the referrer, but recently stopped doing so. Now you only get that data about 25% of the time. See http://www.notprovidedcount.com/ which tracks the ...

As per http://stackoverflow.com/a/15278642/1983389 it is probably better to submit a re-crawl request than trying to purge the existing data: Go to: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ and log in If you haven't already, add and verify the site with the "Add a Site" button Click on the site name for the one you want to manage Click Crawl -> Fetch as ...

Hm, I'll take the shot, so we can discuss this little bit more. Interesting question. I'd do this: On the desktop page I'd add rel=”alternate” tag pointing to the mobile URL. This will help bot to discover the location of site’s mobile pages. On the mobile page, I'd add a rel=”canonical” tag pointing to the desktop URL. If HTTP redirection is difficult ...

The problem is that "Home" is not a great title. Your page title should be something like: Kallpachay Summer Camp "Home" is a generic title used by lots of sites. Google is ignoring it because it doesn't describe your site at all. The text that Google is choosing is from a heading tag in the page source: <h2 class="Title ...

Midnight is the logic time to end a session - if there has to be a specific time at which each and every session, no matter how long it is open has to be ended. Even if it might seem stupid to count two sessions for a user visiting from 11:55pm - and leaving after 10 minutes. You might want to count visits per day/week/month/year. An in this case there has ...

What you are referring to is "Google Sitelinks" We only show sitelinks for results when we think they'll be useful to the user. If the structure of your site doesn't allow our algorithms to find good sitelinks, or we don't think that the sitelinks for your site are relevant for the user's query, we won't show them. At the moment, sitelinks are ...

With AngularJS Apps, the important part is to prerender the page, so that the cached version of it exists in memory and you avoid writing to disk to grab the 'idealised' version of page. See Prerender.io for the SaaS and the Open Source version on GitHub. Be sure to check the 'Middleware' resource to suit your need for publishing it. The cached version of ...

404 errors on your site don't affect SEO in the sense that having too many 404's will reduce your ranking, there is however a caveat to this and that third party links to your site which terminate at 404 pages won't pass link juice and so your rank won't improve from that link, certainly not the end of the world for only one or two links but when you are ...

Solution for client: If the client want to get seo benefit out of this, then they can call this url from their backend and render it using a headless browser like prerender and include that as a html on page. So that crawler can see that content and index it. https://prerender.io/ Solution from you - the provider Other way around, you should add this ...

I have them disallowed in my robots.txt... but it doesn't change anything, Google still show them, also on those pages contact, services,... I use Noindex from Yoast. Still no result. So what can I do else? Or maybe I do something wrong If you specifically don't want these pages indexed then you should use the noindex robots meta tag in the head section ...

If you're 301 redirecting all traffic from HTTP to HTTPS (and your site canonicals match) then that should be enough. Google Search Console doesn't have an option to set HTTPS as the preferred domain.

No. You can only demote sitelinks (ask Google not to show them). Google Webmaster Tools > Search Appearance > Sitelinks Question already anwered here: How to control what appears on google search results?

I have seen images loaded with this pattern: <img data-src="path/to/image.jpg" class="js-lazy-load" /> get picked up by Google and Google Image Search and others have spotted it too. Since Google now executes javascript on your page, there may be no need to put the actual image into the src attribute. Neglecting a src attribute might lead to a grey ...

These are not Rich Snippets. The first snippet has one-line sitelinks, the second snippet has breadcrumbs.

Here's the link from official documentation. To make your pages eligible for Rich Snippets in search results, add structured data of the appropriate type to your content. Make sure to comply with any policies that each type has regarding Rich Snippet display.

Unfortunately there is no way to submit a single URL using cURL or anything automated such as what you are suggesting and there is no way to speed up the indexing process for either the content or the images. Neither sitemap submission nor manual URL submission guarantee the content will be added to the index. With the manual fetch it can update the index a ...

The Google AdsBot does not only check one level deep to assess the page and it is not simply for assessing if the page is a good landing page or not. The AdBot has multiple roles, firstly to check the actual landing page for the ad to see what is on the landing page, this improves the quality of ad delivery to end users by more accurately targeting ads to ...

Blanking a page for 200ms such as for a page loader or splash screen is allowed and complies with the terms of AdSense. The only time that blanking the content will be an issue with AdSense is if you are blanking just over the AdSense section.

The key issue is that Google isn't a big fan of query strings when it comes to indexing, and I know of some instances in my own experience where sites I have managed which have used query strings have only had content indexed where the query strings didn't have to be used and yet couldn't get verification from anywhere 100% stating that query strings where ...

You have an error in your robots.txt file. On line 11 you have Allow: /, a robots.txt file doesn't say what files and directories you can allow, only what you can disallow. The only supported commands for the robots.txt file are "User-agent" and "Disallow". As the Disallow: /random command is after the invalid command it is possible the Google Searchbot ...

Hm... in theory, you could scrap the data with API and then connect it with specific application. If your apps are hosted somewhere, you can get data from there too. Also, for better understanding which keyword to use etc. there is Google Trends. It lets you enter multiple keywords and filter by location, search history, and category. Once you enter that ...

You should remove URL in Search console few times and maybe Google will see your request))

Google indexes many sites that don't have a search console account. Deleting the property from search console does not effect whether Googlebot will crawl your site and include it in the search index. If you disallow crawling via robots.txt Googlebot will never be able to see that those pages are 404. Google needs to be able to crawl to see that you have ...

In my experience, Google can take its time to update the index when it encounters 301 redirects. I've seen it take a week or two after Googlebot crawls a page before the new URL is reflected in the search index. 404 Not Found pages take 24 hours after crawling to be removed from the index. 410 Gone pages are removed from the index within hours. I ...

Google does not guarantee that Rich Snippets will show up for search results from a particular site even if structured data is marked up and can be extracted successfully according to the testing tool.

The exact viewport size of the PageSpeed Insights Checker varies. This is probably to encourage real responsive web design instead of optimization for certain devices. Additionally, if the viewport size was fixed, people might be able to target PageSpeed. You can check What's my Viewport Size? with PageSpeed and see the used viewport size in the ...

I want to point out that a page can be declared as a soft-404 if the text in it suggests that it is an error page regardless of the amount of quality images or template surrounding it. For example, if your page contains text such as: "The page you are requesting could not be found" or even: "The page you are requesting is currently not available" Then it ...

...we were not able to grow anymore in traffic, in fact we end every year with less traffic. UGC has a huge role in forums. If such content is meant to be quality content that is to be indexed in search engines, then consider having new information reviewed before it is posted.

Aside from setting the "Crawl Control" settings within Bing Webmaster tools you could add a crawl-delay: directive to your robots.txt file. Bing supports whole number values ranging from 1 – 20. Each number maps to the length in seconds of time slices in which we divide a 24-hour crawl cycle. In this context, the value 1 means you allow us a ...

What is Fair? To begin with, Google can certainly penalize any sites performance within it's own search engine for what it feels is unacceptable behavior in particular with respect to their ability to earn money as a business. This is their right. It is their property. You do not have to participate in their services and by doing so, they have the right to ...

Setting up a blog on a subdomain compared to a subdirectory really shouldn't make too much of a difference in terms of SEO. It truly depends on the Webmaster's preference. Google and other search engines "should" treat each of them the same granted they again, have the same Copyright information Are using the same Google Search Console (formerly ...

Setting up a subdomain for a blog is absolutely fine from an SEO standpoint. Google treats subdomains as the same site when: They interlink to each other The have the same copyright info They are added to the same Google Search Console account If it is easier to set up the blog on a subdomain from a technical standpoint, there is no SEO reason why you ...

www.blog.website.com will be treated as a completely separate domain. So: www.blog.website.com and www.website.com will not share each other's domain authority. Also its very much easy to configure wordpress however you want.
