I do recommend to conduct some analysis for this. Keywords with most traffic doesn't always mean that there is gold. Get what I mean? OK here we go - example only: baseball bat - 5k monthly searches with 20 monthly conversion/s. baseball bats - 10k monthly searches with only 2 monthly conversion/s. Perhaps, an experiment would probably a good idea ...

Not sure if this is really an answer, more an observation, but anyway... It seems that if Google is able to extract an obvious breadcrumb trail from the page then it will show this in the search results, rather than the actual URL. The breadcrumb trail in the SERPs never includes the final (leaf) page, only the breadcrumb trail that leads to that page (so ...

You appear to have a second, very similar g+ page, I found this by searching for the company's name and address and restricting the search to plus.google.com http://plus.google.com/116517652696883112626/ It seems that google may have picked up that both pages had the same address, website name, etc, and suspended the newer one as a result. Neither page has ...

Hah its not your fault. Pardon the rant in this questions but Google+ is a confusing mess. For as much as they try to make this a keystone, and get people on it, G+ is far too fragmented and confusing for most who use it. Regardless, here is what i think might be wrong: So the link you provided seems to highlight "profile" within the dropdown on the left ...

1) Correct. You only really need to add the non-www version. Google treats www and non-www as separate websites. Same goes for http or https (if that is a factor for you). https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/34592?hl=en 2) See the article above for why you'd need a separate website. The main reason, from that article, is that "Search Console data ...

For Q1: Provided your redirect from www.example.com to example.com forces all requests to be redirected and doesn't just apply to your root folder for example, then you will not need to add www.example.com to your Webmaster Tools as a property. For Q2: This feature of Webmaster Tools is more helpful for setting a preference between SSL and non-SSL versions ...

There are many variables in place here. You need to ask yourself the following questions. Is your new layout responsive? Does your new layout load quickly for your users? Can your users find the content they're looking for quickly? Is your content above the fold? Did you keep your titles and headers the same? Google's algorithm takes many things into ...

In general, hyphenated URLs are better for seo than the id. Two main advantages - Google Ranking - The keywords in link have some ranking factor as it tells a lot about the content inside the page. Although this factor is just 1 out of only G knows how many. Higher CTR - I believe this is very important reason for having nice readable URLs. The keywords ...

I do not know WordPress at all. There may be an option for this. I would check the documentation. You should not need to do a redirect. Apache will do this for you. Otherwise, see if the /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/ directory has dir.conf and dir.load exist, then in your /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ directory you should find a .conf file for your site. If you ...

On an apache server with mod_rewrite installed, you can add this code to your httpd.conf (main apache configuration file) and restart apache gracefully. RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)/$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ %1 [NC,R=301,L] It will redirect all URL requests ending ...

No! There will be no specific influence in your Google SERP if you use JavaScript in your webpage. In older days Google was not that much smart to fetch dynamically generating contents, JavaScript and AJAX but now Google algorithm is very smart to Crawl and Index those contents. Historically, SEO recommendations have centered around having ‘plain text’ ...

We've recently had advice on best practice for a very similar structure. Canonical: Canonical shouldn't be shared across languages, but used within a language. For instance, your Masai homepage would have a canonical tag of: https://www.domain.com/mas But the canonical for your German homepage would be: https://www.domain.com/de x-default: ...

The main text content of the page is the biography on the top. It is the same for all the 3 pages. But the main content of the page is different, even though it is not text-heavy. Search engine crawlers at this time don't use image file contents as a factor for content and because of this, your pages (based on two I have checked) are at least 75% ...

You can use @closetnoc method if your old article is no longer indexed by google. But if its sitll exist on google search, make sure you redirect your old article from Gogle Webmaster Tools to your new site.

I took a look at your page. If only the lists change, then these will likely be seen as duplicate. If there is enough overlap in the lists, this can get you into dangerous areas. Even if the lists are not identical, it is possible that they will weigh less than the regular content on the page and still may be seen as duplicate. This is because at one point, ...

Once your old blog no longer shows up in the Google SERPs, then you can add your article to the new blog. That is the technically correct answer. Now for my answer. If your blog is dead and will not show up again and you are sure of that, there is no problem adding your article now. One duplicate page will not harm you especially when the old one is gone. ...

The first thing you have to know is that Google uses your HTML DOM (document object model) to determine where content begins and ends. It can do this fairly well with one page, but uses more than one to know exactly what HTML fragments are header, footer, sidebar, etc. and removes these sections for content analysis. This means that templating is taken ...

No. Even though the layout is exactly the same across all pages, that accounts for a small percent of the entire source code of any page. If you have tons of unique content per page, then the layout code would make up an even smaller percentage of duplicate content. However, If your layout consists of a side panel with almost the same text for every page, ...

When purchasing a new URL you need to run a few checks on its history. You can use https://magestic.com to check out historical links and you can gain free access by registering your site. You can also use https://archive.org to view the web history of the site. If the domain looks to have a history of spam links then this may be the issue, Google will ...

Generally speaking, you will not need to disavow any links. This should remain a last resort for toxic links. Elsewhere I describe what a toxic link is. Please understand that most junk links are not toxic. For a link to be toxic, a lot has to happen. It is possible that there was some negative effect, however, Google understands that spam sites will make ...

You need to add the every unique URL to the XML Sitemaps.This helps in Google bots to crawl your websites in depth. And also add different types of Sitemaps https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/156184?hl=en which is associated with every product.

You do not want your XML sitemap to include duplicate content. In your case, it sounds like that one product exists at multiple URLs, which is the very definition of duplicate content. So, what I'd say is that you want to have the page mywebsite.com/product1 (the canonical version of the URL) in your XML sitemap, then keep the others out of your XML sitemap. ...

There are two sets of pages indexed within Google Search Console: Google Index > Index Status -- and -- Crawl > Sitemaps You will find that these numbers are confusing. They represent two different things. If you are referring to any sitemap submitted (Crawl > Sitemaps) and the stats associated with it versus indexed pages (Google Index > Index Status), ...

Google now are able to crawl dynamically generated content with javascript, but i don't know if they also crawl javascript that requiring scrolling down page for more content to be generated. Take a look at this http://searchengineland.com/tested-googlebot-crawls-javascript-heres-learned-220157

You don't give enough information, so I guess that you have changed domain names and you are using Apache as a webserver. Given that the website was live only for 2 weeks the change or domain name will have no significant (or at all) impact to search results. A general good advice when changing domain names would be to take the following steps: If you ...

Here is a similar question and answer I found on the Adwords Community forum: Just wanted to let your know that HTML5 or any display ad on AdWords cannot be used with form elements in it. As you said, any click on the HTML5 ads will redirect you to the landing page plus any display ads that mimic a feature that they cannot actually perform (i.e. ...

If you haven't already done so, register an account with Google Webmaster Tools and add your domain to it then access your domain, and select the gear icon and visit Site Settings then you can select "Limit Google's maximum crawl rate" and select a value that you're OK with. Probably the lowest value works well for you which may be 0.002 requests a second (a ...

Because Microsoft Edge presents a User-Agent string that contains the word Chrome. And, for that matter, Safari. Check out http://whatsmyuseragent.com/ and you'll see something like this: (Emphasis mine) This is deliberate on Microsoft's behalf to fool naïve user-agent checks into thinking that it's not Internet Explorer. Which it isn't.


0

The answer is simple and here is an oversimplified example: // Your browser is identifying itself as this $ua_string = 'EDGE'; // The website logic is this if($ua_string === 'IE') { echo 'You are using IE'; } elseif($ua_string === 'FIREFOX') { echo 'You are using Firefox'; } else { echo 'You are using Chrome, and we don\'t support that.'; }

Regular blog update with high quality & unique content can improve your site Pagerank.

What you want to do is check the server access logs after testing your website with each tool to see what identification google uses. Search the logs for googlebot or IP addresses that match google. Also, search the logs for part of the URL of the page you requested for each test to help you track google down. Once you done that, you need to modify your ...

Is it normal that Google can't access external scripts? Please I don't want to get penalized or I don't want my rank to drop? What do I do? Do I leave the BuySellaAd codes? If the only resources google has a problem accessing are any resources required for third-party advertising (such as Buy-Sell Ads) then you don't have to worry and just leave the ...

It is correct that Google (or any other searchengine spider) don't execute javascript when indexing your website. Google want to index data and javascript is code, not data. So script resources are ignored. However more and more website deploy ajax techniques that 'inject' data into the website after the initial source is loaded. That leaves the possibility ...

As closetnoc mentioned, you don't have to have a sitemap. Just make sure Google can access the link. This means don't use any rel="nofollow" or any other nofollow directives on links you want google to follow and it will have an easier time finding new content. However, you should include one if you want to keep track of how many URLs on your site google ...

Sitemaps are not generally necessary. For most sites, sitemaps are only used by Google to ensure that they can effectively crawl your site by comparing the results of a crawl with the sitemap. Where a sitemap is necessary is for extremely large sites, sites that cannot be effectively crawled, sites with a paywall or login. Sitemaps do nothing for SEO. If ...

Anything in an iframe can't be indexed in the first place. So if you're not wanting the page to be found by what is said in the reveiws, an iframe is definitely the way to go as it will also make it so that you won't have to worry about duplicate content.


0

You have 2 options - iframe, as you suggested by yourself, or adding them dynamically with JavaScript. There is no other way to prevent that content from indexing without using noindex on the whole page.
