To override this use canonical URLs to tell Google to use the non https version in their search results.

Based on sdleihssirhc's description, without outside gutters: columnWidth = (layoutWidth + gutter)/columns - gutter With outside gutters: columnWidth = (layoutWidth - gutter)/columns - gutter Though if you're going with your own grid design, it's easier to just add it up, e.g.: columns = 3 columnWidth = 280px gutter = 50px gutters = 2 layoutWidth = ...

The real benefit of cloud hosting comes from the ability to quickly add and remove servers as needed to handle traffic. You only get charged for the amount of time that each server runs. It's easy to stand-up and terminate machines as needed, no long term commitments unless you purchase cheaper reserved instances. I don't know anything about Godaddy's grid ...

Mu understanding (from a similar issue I saw last year) is that if Google detects the same content available on the same domain over SSL secured https as http, they will prefer the SSL version in their index. I have not seen a preference to set to override this. The best solution for you is to get https turned OFF for your domain. If you don't have a ...

Rows hold all data in one heap. Also, you can threat row as 100% width column if you wish to. Also, because of row, you can do CSS magic with :first-child selector for instance. You have to use it if you have, let's say, 4 columns, every 25% wide, but you want only 3 margins (between 1st and 2nd, 2nd and 3rd, 3rd and 4th column). Notice that you DON'T want ...

Web design grids focus on vertical grids because of the nature of browser rendering. The content is not known, nor the text size, and so the space consumed by arbitrary text is unknown. This is handled in browser rendering by flowing the text, first to the right, and when the right-hand end of the container is reached, vertically downwards to a new line. ...

As you said, sites are generally viewed in a vertical fashion, which is why the focus is on the grid systems that are popular today. The problem with horizontal spacing is that you're limited as to what you can really control. Browsers allow users to easily zoom in/out, to make text and other elements larger. When that happens, the content will stay within ...

The right width, for the 960.gs system, is 940px. That's the decision the designer made. The extra horizontal pixels are reserved for side margins to prevent the layout from butting up to the browser chrome. There's really no "preferred" answer here, as a 960px wide column isn't even an option under this system. (Barring customizations, but then you're not ...

You should use the "grid_12" class for a full-width column, even though you already have the "container_12" element. So 940px is the correct size, as seen on the demo page; it lines up the edges of the columns in the same way as a "grid_2" column above two "grid_1" columns.

Aside from the 1024 scrollbar issue, 960 is divisible by many factors making it possible to have many different balanced column width configurations.

Because it fits nicely into a 1024 wide screen resolution and dividable into different divisions quite easily. It creates a fixed width (why you wouldn't want to use percents). The conversion of arbitrary units such as points, centimeters or inches could vary from system to system.

It is likely that a site somewhere linked to you using https:// and Google then followed relative links through your site which ended up as HTTPS. You've take some good steps already by putting the correct URLs in your XML sitemap. I would also suggest to: Turn off SSL if possible. Link to your pages using the full URL, i.e. http://example.com/page.html ...
