Yes. But more importantly, a link within content is most important. Any link in most any placement on the page will be good for you assuming that the site is of quality and the link has good link alt text. There is some exception to this of course. For example a link in the footer is not wise. As well, a site-wide link is also not wise. Just make sure you ...

As far as I know, only Microsoft Office itself makes ...

Pagination can serve the same SEO purpose as a sitemap: it will get Googlebot to crawl and index all your content. But, just like a sitemap, it won't help the pages rank much. Consider the case in ...

Having a duplicate set of navigation links isn't going to change how Google sees your site much. In fact, when Googlebot encounters a second link to the same destination in a page, it generally ignores it: PageRank is only passed to the first link Anchor text only counts for the first link Having duplicate navigation is very common.

Browsers do not try one protocol and then fall back to the other. The browser will use which ever protocol it is linked to. If that protocol isn't supported, the user will get an error. If you want to force users to use one protocol, you can redirect from one to the other. For example, to force secure connection on your site use the following rewrite ...

If you request resources from http when the page is https, the browser may give an error. To answer your questions: ...

This is a way old question but it just popped up in stream. Here is my observation on how this seems to work. PR is either made from thin air, passed to you from another site, or both. In the case of standard followed backlinks, they generate tiny PR then pass bigger PR. In the case of nofollow backlinks, they generate tiny PR but pass no extra PR. I ...
