...with other web sniffing tools the HTTP HEADERS are correct. Tell the programmers of those web sniffing tools that they need to reprogram those tools because I looked at the HTML source code of your page and things need changing. What can I do? Stop confusing the robots. I look at your code and you have TWO title tags as follows separated by ...

If your site shows Google what is basically advertising content that is unrelated to the actual site, you've been hacked. If you have enough knowledge of WordPress and also server security to detect and clean the hack, go for it. If you are at all uncertain about how to do this, hire a professional security service to do it for you such as Sucuri or ...

I suggest you add meta title and meta description for every page. It will give you more control over what is displayed in SERP. Sometimes Google will alter your titles and descriptions but having those meta tags should help.

Does your webpages deserve to be indexed? Do them give something useful to an user? If not, Google won't penalize your website, it will completely ignore those pages, meaning they won't be indexed at all.

The main problem you're having is that you expect numbers put out by Google to be accurate, but they aren't. This isn't specific to Google, it's true for all major web search engines. The total result count is just an estimate, and it's easy to see: http://searchengineland.com/why-google-cant-count-results-properly-53559 The numbers published by Webmaster ...

I would suggest finding the plugin that will show users duplicate title when they are creating new thread on the forum. Also, the plugin will not allow users to submit the duplicate title post in the forum. Contact forum developer team and ask them about such plugin. Or you can build one which will scan the database and tell users about the similar title ...

I would suggest removing those pages from the site. As you said, these pages are in the backend, so they are not adding any value to the users. Also, you have similar pages with the similar keywords targeted on the front end site so why we need extra pages. You should delete those pages from your website. If they are receiving any traffic from search or any ...

There are two ways to keep your website deindex. Use noindex tag in your html code. This will tell crawler not to crawl your website for search engine indexing. Add disallow tag in the robots.txt file for not crawling your entire website.

I am assuming that you're using a custom e-com script which doesn't explicitly block the back end pages from search engines. Otherwise, there is no reason for backend pages to be indexed. Considering your backend pages fall within an admin sub-category, you may include in in robots.txt user-agent: * disallow: /admin/ If the admin is within a sub-domain, ...

Google will begin to index your site the moment it finds it, GA installed or not. I suppose adding GA to your site may help them find it faster, but if you do not want your site indexed you need to take explicit steps to stop that from happening with proper no-indexing and a robots.txt file. It is actually even a little more involved than that, so here is a ...

There is no reason for Google to index your website just because of the GA code (it might index it through other methods though, i.e. - links to your site). Moreover, Google obeys robots.txt and the META ROBOTS protocol, so to prevent your website from being indexed by Google, you may upload a robots.txt file with the following instruction user-agent: ...

Here's my answer considering your comments. Back end pages shouldn't be indexed by search engines because they are useless for visitors. It means that optimizing SEO of these pages is not necessary. To no-index these pages, you can use the no-index meta tag for the <head> section of your pages and add these pages to your robots.txt. If you can't ...

Submitting a sitemap (XML,.txt, HTML or RSS) allows bots to discover pages. If you need even faster submission, do it manually or some types of automation (using selenium).

Titles are supposed to be unique for each page. That's what titles are for! To differentiate one page and its contents from another. Does Wikipedia concern itself with different titles on its millions of pages? No.

I'm head of SEO for a website with a similar structure to your own: The with large amounts of content coming from the same template but being filled out by Event details. Google will choose whether a page is worth indexing or not. If it deems a page too sparse on content, it will drop it from the index. There are penalties for bad linking and bad content. ...

Google would be happy to index billions of very unique web pages, but it hates indexing multiple URLs that point to exactly the same content. For your match pages, you need to make sure the information is unique enough. If one page has this content: This football event just happened between (insert team name here) and (insert other team name here). Here ...
