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 ...

First of all, beware: canonical and hreflang at the same time sounds dangerous. You would have to use canonical only for duplication within the same language. Back to the main topic: Automatic redirection is not a good idea... You can read this from Google's documentation for international targeting: Avoid automatic redirection based on the user’s ...

Sitemap index files can contain references to actual sitemap files, and each of those sitemap files then contain references to URLs that you want search engines to index. When you submit a sitemap index file to Google, it actually process all sitemap files that are connected to it, but you may have to wait up to a few hours to notice some action in ...

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 ...

I had the same problem but I worked it out. For the Javascript redirect code you will have to place it at the head. Between <head> and </head>. For the second question concerning reaching all browsers I specified the max-width and the min-width for several screen sizes.

I would suggest being explicit when you modify the headers. So for the redirect, Instead of having: header('Location: '.$url.''); You should have: header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently",true); header("Location: ".$url,true); exit(); This will then tell the browser you're doing a 301 redirect. Also if you plan on supporting really old browsers that ...

1) Your PHP redirect is great. Google's own documentation recommends a 302 redirect, which is what PHP's header('Location:') function defaults to. 2) You could bump the max-width parameter for your media queries up to 737px which would then cover everything up to an iPhone 6+ sized screen. You could go higher to also include some tablets, but those start ...

We seem to get this question enough now that a good and proper answer should be given specifically to this very simple issue. When Google has a blocked resource it is generally a 3rd party script/resource or a local script/resource that accesses 3rd party components. You will see there are two images and the image on the right will generally have what you ...

Yes and no. I have a website that has two versions of the site. One for desktop, one for mobile. The mobile website has a fixed viewport of 380 and according to Google's Mobile Ready Test my website is mobile friendly. It also shows up in mobile search results as being mobile friendly. Google says that a fixed width viewport is accepted but it is not ...

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 ...
