Don't add nofollow to your noindex, as you want PageRank to flow through those pages to others normally; you just don’t want them indexed. Therefore, on the pages you don't want indexed, just add <meta name="robots" content="noindex, follow"> to the <head> section. Make sure to remove your robots.txt exclusions, as with them present, the meta ...

Two URLs should not target the same page. It is consider as duplicate. Make it one page by using 301 redirection. It's far better to use words in URLs when possible, otherwise there may be a chance for making mistakes in development and testing.

It would be much better practice to have the one destination accessible from different areas of the site. If you had for example store/productpage/theproduct and from wherever you place the product it was just to use this link then you avoid copied content and there is no need to redirect. If the pages have been indexed though then you may want to follow the ...

If two URLs are indexed by Google, it most probably considers that two URLs imply a duplicate content issue and it can penalize SEO of your two pages. A good way to avoid this is to implement 301 redirect from one URL to the other or use the rel="canonical" tag on one URL. Read the Google support page on duplicate content for more information.

All websites have to earn their Page Rank with Google, regardless of top-level domain extention. As for the time frame, it is almost instant, as far as the public knows regarding how Google Search works from the backend.

Any idea if they will ever integrate them into the search results? Of course they will. Do you really think the search engines would omit an entire segment of websites just because their TLD is new? The search engines have readily indexed and ranked new TLDs as they emerged (i.e. .co, .biz). These new TLDs will be no exception. Will they be ranked ...

If you are having a penalty issue doing a 301 redirect will not fix that. It will most likely redirect the penalty. Be careful when buying old domains, some of them have penalties on them and that is why the owner is selling them. Get Webmaster Tools, see if there are any manual action penalties. If there aren't see what your rankings are. It could just be ...

Do you have Google Webmaster Tools? If not, go sign up right now. If you have a manual penalty then it will be in the notification. If you do not have a manual penalty, then you need to check the quality of all of your backlinks. If you have some spammy sites linking to you, Google can put you in a "bad neighborhood" that will devalue your site. Luckily, if ...

Before redirecting everything, consider if it's your content that has the problem or if it's the backlinks that were devalued. Around the time you saw the drop, many "low quality link" networks were under fire. As the link networks were devalued, so were the sites that they were propping up on the SERPs. If your problem is related to penguin and bad links, ...

I would suggest you using private navigation on Chrome to check the exact position. Also you can check rankings on Google WebMaster Tools. The last option will be to use an external tool, for example, Rankerizer or Serpbook. Hope that helps.

Google usually knows which content is unique, which is repetitive and behaves according to that. I would add a descriptive meta title + meta description that will tell a lot about your content to people that are searching for it. The meta data has to be written in accordance with the goal of each specific page (sell product, tell a story, get feedback). ...

All three of the methods work for what you are trying to do. The question is which are you willing to use? OR which is easier for you to do? As for my personal preference, I prefer Hashbang. For me, is the easiest to pick up and use and understand the documentation and implementation into working code.

I don't think this is PR related because my unrated blog (PR0), when I post a new article, it does appear in the google search a few minutes after I first submit the new post. IMO this is because I use a sitemap.xml + webmastertools + ping google about changes in the sitemap. ...

The only consideration I see is that the words download, PDF, and article will become likely the top three or at least within the top ten keywords your site is known for therefore the site topic as seen by Google and/or Bing maybe that of article download. There may be two problems with that: Your site is not about article downloading. It can dilute the ...

If your repeated content is used to help your users and doesn't content keywords of your website, I don't think it would be considered as keyword stuffing by search engines. However, if you want to avoid potential duplicate content issues, you can avoid repeating this paragraph over your all pages and migrate it to a new page like an "help center to ...

Your biggest issue here are the 80 words: how relevant are they? I highly doubt you'll get a conclusive answer on a ratio, so I'm just gonna share my experience. If you think about headers, menus, footers and all of that, most websites are pretty repetitive. I have been very successful in one website for example, where the only different content in many ...
