To answer the original question: no there is no way to mark a page as user-generated content. But "keyword density" is not a site-wide metric. Adding user-generated content will not affect the keyword density of your other pages and will not harm the ranking of your site (unless there is a large amount of spam). Adding some UGC to existing pages is very ...

Google's words: When a website is configured to serve desktop and mobile browsers using different URLs, webmasters may want to automatically redirect users to the URL that best serves them. If your website uses automatic redirection, be sure to treat all Googlebots just like any other user-agent and redirect them appropriately. Google recognizes three ...

Bing has a help document that says the following about "Unexpected Error": What does "Unexpected Error" mean? If you are seeing frequent "Unexpected Error" results in Fetch as Bingbot, this may indicate that our crawler is not able to connect to your server and not getting a server response at all. Your server may be unintentionally blocking Bingbot ...

I would recommended either using the www or non-www and stick with it. Set a preferred URL in Webmaster Tools and then 301 to either your www or non-www. The reason for this would be Google would see both the non-www and www sites as two separate websites. If the content is exactly the same, then you could be penalized with duplicate content.

If your site already had 10 million pages indexed, I would say double-check that your site is crawlable and a sitemap is submitted through Google Webmaster Tools. Google does prefer sitemaps for larger sites such as yours. It takes time for Google to notice changes sometimes especially if there is a major change with a ton of pages. It can take as much as ...

As far as Google is concerned, it is possible to make "cross site submissions" of XML sitemaps if you are a "verified owner of the sites" (e.g. have proven your ownership in the Google Webmaster Tools). You could - for example - as well place all sitemaps on company.com. See this google help page for detailed instructions: Simplify multiple sitemap ...

It is very rare that Google indexes 100% of any large sitemap. I'd estimate that Google only indexes no more than 50% of the content that it crawls. It often doesn't include content in the indexes because of: content duplication low quality (or lower quality than something else that it is making room for) low Pagerank low site reputation crawl errors ...

It will take time for Google to start properly indexing your website, as it is still processing your content and "figuring you out". This kind of behaviour is common with newly-submitted websites. One or two pages are indexed and they show up on Google (mostly, under very specific search queries). Then they disappear. Then they reappear. All of this common. ...

Why don't you put the text www.foo.com/bar in your www.bar.com/page.php?some-parameters-and-utm-codes-etc page? If someone searches for the text www.foo.com/bar your page should rank for it. Perhaps stick a sentence in there somewhere that says "this page is redirected from www.foo.com/bar".
