closetnoc says: "Terms 2 characters and less are ignored. Not sure that answers your question. But that is the Google bottom line according to what I have read." I'm a bit skeptical that you will ever be able to optimize anything with keyword density. As long as you use the keywords on the pages and they read naturally, you shouldn't have a problem. ...

Google never forgets a site that it had once indexed. Googlebot will continue to try to visit your old sites for years. There is no way that I know of to get the bots to totally stop trying to visit the old URLs. If the sites are truly down, Google won't include them in the search index. You won't get real users visiting those sites from search ...

If you have access to those sites, add a hard 404-header. It won't get more obvious than that. The meta's (noindex and nofollow) still indicate that some content exists, you just don;t want it indexed (right now as far as they care). If those sites dont exists, use a htaccess and some CNAMES to do that same trick. (CNAME forum.site.com as site, and htaccess ...

You could set up a single page on the subdomain with a message to users that the subdomain is no longer active, and they should access www.example.com instead. Provide a link for users to click through to the main site, and include <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> in the header for search engines to know that it's no longer available. This ...

If you still have control on your websites before, just add this on the head <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW"> That will instruct the Search Engine spiders to stop indexing your website and stop following links. Those entries will be flushed from their database. Google on the other hand uses more than 1 database and it may take around ...

Is there a way to guess the keyword traffic for a specific URL using just search engines and page source? No, a search engine needs you to tell it the search terms and it gives you content as results - but I believe you want to be told what keywords/search terms (that you have been unable to guess yourself) generate traffic to this URL. You need a ...

With robots.txt you can control crawling, not indexing. If a search engine is not allowed to crawl a document on your host, it might still index its URL, e.g. if it found the link on an external site. You can control indexing with the meta-robots element or the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header (see examples). You have to decide if you want to allow search engines ...

It is always considered a good seo practice to non index categories and tags. Google considers these pages as duplicate as the same title & post excerpt is used across all those indexed pages. In order to get rid of Google’s penalty, you’ll need to no-index categories and tags on your blog. If you are using wordpress you can use seo by yoast plugin and ...

Martijn has a very good answer but I want to emphasize the most important point: Don't throw the existing website away If the existing website it working you need to have a plan for each and every page of it. You can still make big changes but for each page of the current website you need to decide if you: Leave it as is Add to it Modify it heavily ...

First check how they currently do. Titles, description, content etc. You want to keep that the same. Do not improve (unless obvious things) Check which urls are used. Do not change url structure! Or use the proper 301 redirects to make sure current page value is transferred to the new page. You're starting on a new website, think this through. This is the ...
