Simple answer. Terrible. Besides the fact that there will be duplicate content that will not appear in the SERPs, purchasing additional domains does not solve problems, it creates them. It is always far better to build and focus on one domain than to divide your efforts. As well, any domain with just a few pages can never rank. Especially a new domain. Any ...

The problem with this setup is that two requests are made to the server. One to load the initial HTML and one to load the actual data through AJAX. This alone can be enough to create a negative impact on SEO especially if all of the required content to be presented on the screen requires AJAX. Also you mentioned your site takes a few seconds to load. This ...

From the very beginning, Google primarily utilized three perspectives when using semantics and ranking: one, link text and value to the target page; two, the title tag of the target page; and three, the content itself. One of the interesting research results the project found was that performing a search against the title tag was about 2% more effective than ...

Duplicate content is no longer determined in a linear fashion. Today, duplicate content is determined using a semantic scoring method so that near duplicate content will still be seen as duplicate. This is because spammers would simply rearrange the content to avoid content as being flagged as duplicate. As well, n-gram phrase recognition is used to ...

Yes, although I'm not sure how to measure the negatives. Essentially you will lose out on SEO by not having the pictures on your site; image searches do drive traffic, although the amount can be very minimal. If you host the images, you also have control over their naming conventions, which you can utilize for them to perform well in image searches. ...

You have done your research and seem to have a good handle on the situation. To sum up: Using robots.txt would prevent search engines from crawling the PDF files. If third party sites linked directly to the PDF files, then search engines might include the URLs in the search index (but would still not be able to index their contents.) Using X-Robots-Tag ...

I originally read you question as the number of indexed pages from your sitemap is 1500 and that you are worried. Then I thought about it. Perhaps there are things you need to know. If your site is new, then it will take quite a while for a new site to be indexed. I am not sure how old your site is, but it can take as much as a year for some sites to sink ...

You are thinking too much in linear terms with a very old mindset. Keywords and density recommendations in respect to Google and likely Bing as well is absolutely completely wrong. Stop thinking this way. You do have some problems, however, that has nothing to do with being penalized. You have a performance problem. Here is where you need to educate your ...

Try to make text more english, especially the text in the title tag, and in Webmaster tools, select the website domain, then the gear icon, then "site settings" then for crawl rate select "Limit Google's maximum crawl rate" and select the right-most point on the slider that appears so that Google can scan your site faster. Just make sure you don't have ...

No its not same. Google will count img01231 as <ALT> or <title> name for new image. Basically 301 redirect passes link juice not such things.

Google does not appear to index text in .svg image files. I have created an SEO experiment for you. I: put three paragraphs of text in an SVG image saved that as a .svg file embedded the image in a new web page using <img src= waited a week to see what Google indexed Google did not index the text in the image at all. The text on the new page ...
