PDF files are crawled and indexed by Google. Links in them do count as backlinks. A few years ago there was a site that got a penalty for distributing PDF files for various websites to post because those files contained links with anchor text of popular search terms. The site on this PDF file resides would have to allow the PDF to be crawled and not ...

GWT backlinks report is not the one to trust too, I think. It may show links from deindexed pages, and do not show the live ones. To check the backlinks use ahrefs or something. GWT is only an additional tool to see. Regarding indexing by search engines, search for the exact text around the link/anchor (or with anchor) and see the results.

As closetnoc has stated: you are keyword stuffing. Removing keywords from your page is likely to help you look less spammy and will help you rank better. You are stuffing so many keywords into your pages that Google is likely to be filtering them as spam. Your keyword filled links seem to be a big part of the reason that Google isn't ranking the page ...

Just because you think a page is optimized for a keyword, does not mean the search engines do. There are a lot of factors that go into ranking a web page and you do not control many of them. And if your optimization efforts seem to be unnatural it may hurt your page's chances of ranking. There is no definite way to diagnose this as we do not have access ...

The way Google says to handle it makes me think they don't appreciate iframes that much. Google supports frames and iframes to the extent that it can. Frames can cause problems for search engines because they don't correspond to the conceptual model of the web. In this model, one page displays only one URL. Pages that use frames or iframes display ...

I feel your pain. I believe having multiple business can have the same address. Think off a sharing office space. What would such businesses do? Having multiple businesses should not be a problem for local SEO if they have unique NAP's. NAP's stands for name, address and phone number. Okay the address can not need to be unique in our case. But name and ...

Google's crawl bots do not support TLSv1.2, this is fairly well known and people have ranted about Google's failure to support >TLSv1 for a while now as people have tried to make their website get a 100% score on places like SSLlabs -- which means they then get dropped off Google for unreachability. TLSv1.2 is substantially different from TLSv1. This is a ...

Since you're just launching, be safe in regards to SEO. If you get hit by Panda, it's a very deep hole to crawl out of, so avoid that ;) For these pages you're considering, separate the utility for human visitors from the utility for search engines. If the pages help a visitor find a specific product offered by a specific local retailer, then they ...

Blogger will allow you to use blog.example.com - and I have done this successfully. It does not allow example.com/blog If you use Blogger, then your content is hosted on blogger's servers. You should take regular backups (using Google Takeout) in case anything goes wrong - but overall your security risks seem to be less on Blogger than on Wordpress ...

You are better off keeping the blog on your own domain for a vast amount of reasons but there is also no harm in using an external blog if it makes it easier for your business to manage and maintain. It is unlikely that your blog will rank above your website for the same terms (one would not expect your blog and website to be ranking for the same terms). ...

You are right. Duplicate or nearly duplicate content will cause problems. The best thing to do, and I have seen this many times, is have a single website that is the parent company with products pages available. As well, have each brand name represented as being owned by the parent with a single page for each brand or all of the brands. You can have each ...

For the experience I had writing titles and descriptions, I would say you are looking for titles of around 70 Characters and descriptions of around 300. In my case I had them in multiple languages and made an effort to always have at least more than 250 chars on the description, and things went good. Funny thing is that one of my competitors started to ...
