Google is very good at interpreting javascript/jquery even for the evaluation of backlinks. I suspect that they will use the data on the left hand side of the screenshot titled "This is how Googlebot saw the page:" for gathering content and the right to ensure that you are giving the correct content to users. Since the render on both parts is exactly the ...

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 ...

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 ...

You have to read this question carefully. It is about the Google Custom Search Engine which is not the Google Search Engine. It is a feature whereby a site can have a custom search engine for the site. This, at least, is a site search feature. These are two different things though there is some relationship between the two. Assuming that a site owner opts ...

If you want your pages indexed faster you need to do more than add them to your sitemap. A sitemap doesn't pass any link juice to the pages and Google usually doesn't index pages that have no link juice. See The Sitemap Paradox for more information. You need to link new pages from other pages on your site. It might be worth having a "recently ...

There is no fixed time from when Google crawls a site to when it is available on the index. A few years ago it would have taken anywhere up to 6 weeks for content to be added due to Google rebuilding the main index in batches, now with the live updating it is meant to take longer but it could be added to the index any time from a few days to a few weeks ...

Google should be able to index your AJAX driven content. As of 14 October 2015 Google depreciated its AJAX Crawling Proposal which was made back in 2009 as at the time the Googlebot was incapable of understanding javascript generated dom objects on the page. Since then the Googlebot has been enhanced and can interpret the page just as any modern web browser ...

I'm gonna answer this in terms of general frameworks because generally questions too specific on the details of one website are closed here. For any engine to be able to successfully render data, you want to make it as basic and as easy to understand as possible. In the early days, no search engine was able to render Javascript code. This means that if a ...

Better yet: 301 to the correct page. Edit: since this forum is gone, 301 to a page that explains that the forum has been permanently shut down. That's because external links still point to interior pages of that dead forum. That's not your fault, but on the other hand you sure enjoyed collecting all that free link juice. Surely this has happened to you: ...

Yes you are absolutely correct. You need to throw 410 to indicate that you have permanently disabled the page from your site. 404 page does not indicate that to crawler. Assume that there is some temporary issue on your site due to which 404 is shown, you don't want crawler to remove ur pages from index in that case. Also make sure you remove these pages ...

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 ...

You have Data Saver turned on in the settings of Google Chrome. It proxies all your HTTP (not HTTPS or incognito) traffic through an optimisation server at Google to make the pages smaller.
