Yes, only one H1. But there's an easy solution, which has it's own flaws (you could get very weird titles in SEO results!): <h1> <span class="responsive-hidden">This is my title</span> <span class="hidden responsive-show">This is my title</span> </h1> This is not a perfect solution! This is perfect for less ...

Yes, find a way to fix this. You're not the only one getting these errors, your users will as well. The indication icon in the URL-bar will show a faulty connection icon because not everything is https, thus it's not 100% safe (assuming full https is 100%). This will scare off people. You should try to link to //www.example.com/img.jpg, without http(s) If ...

CSS Hidden Google and other search engines do not penalize sites for using display:none and in fact its extremely common that most sites use it for one reason or more. JavaScript Content Google and other search engines can understand JavaScript to some extent and again it is extremely common for websites to inject and modify things in the DOM. Cloaking ...

I don't think there is a preference for SEO and if there is, the benefit is marginal. I would personally choose to go with the .com or TLD version as users will most likely recognize brand websites and could lead to higher CTR. You do stand to run into a problem if brands have sub-brands or similar brands compete with a brand. For example, people would ...

So i was wondering if there would be any repercussions if i ware to split the site in two sub-domains ... there are, see below And also what if they want ...

I'm thinking of proxying the image serving via an https endpoint, but it this worth the effort for SEO reasons? You are not going to be penalized by algorithms for not using https. As long as crawlers can access the images, they are going to index them and eventually rank them too. However, the warning message provides a not so good user experience. ...

Will javascript redirecting all of them to my main website (otherurl.com), help or hurt my SEO? Client-side javascript redirects and the similar meta-refreshes are strongly associated with deceptive practices by Google. There are still some narrow circumstances where Google are ok with you using them but they strongly recommend that you use server-side ...

The original robots.txt specification is http://www.robotstxt.org/orig.html, where it says: The record starts with one or more User-agent lines […] So yes, User-agent is required.

When Google crawl the web they use a variety of standard automatic custom "web browsers" that they call "bots" (short for "robot"). These bots may not see your web-page in exactly the same way as you do when you use a web browser like Firefox or Chrome. "Fetch as Google" is a way to see how your pages look to the Google bots. Think of it as viewing the web ...

Since you are concerned about company name, I will start there and then move on to images. You will need to signal to Google your company name. You can do this best by using schema.org mark-up for local business https://schema.org/LocalBusiness, corporation https://schema.org/Corporation, NGO https://schema.org/NGO or any of the other options found toward ...

I have a site that is ranking bottom of page 1 for "IT support company" - however, I have since realised there are other keywords I could be ranking for as well, such as "IT support services," had I started off with a more long-tail keyword such as "IT support services company." This is where planning and evaluating needs to take place. You say ...

Domain Name or Store Name This would seem to lean towards being "primarily opinion based" I would think? Whilst I agree with the points raised in David's answer, personally, I would go with the "Store Name" in the URL, over the "Domain Name". I would think people would be more familiar with the store name / brand name, rather than the store's specific ...

First you need to implement proper pagination canonicals, either as rel=prev/next or as a "view all" page using a catchall URL. Here is a guide to do that https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1663744?hl=en Keep in mind, if you use a "view all" page, its canonical must be static, meaning you cant just use /my-category&limit=234 since it would ...

The answer depends on the content of the three sites. If the content on all sites are very similar and are used primarily to "game the system" and take up as much real estate in the SERPs, you will lose. Google is smarter than that and uses signals such as same IPs, logins, user cookies, etc. to tell that one company is trying to manipulate the SERPs. An ...

In terms of SEO, this: http://www.example.com/egypt/seaview-hotel/ is better, and even well accepted by Google because as part of Google's Webmaster Guidelines, they appreciate a hierarchal type of URL layout which is what this URL has. Additionally, management of each section of the site is far easier to the point where you can assign a customer (hotel ...

If you're using responsive design or dynamic serving, you don't need to do anything. If you're using separate mobile URLs, you'd have the rel=canonical set to the desktop version, so that would take care of it.
