John Mueller from Google said in its wbemaster hangouts videos that links from irrelevant but non-spammy websites have no negative impact on target sites. No need to disavow them. Google also detect spammy sites and neutralize their links automatically (they are treated as nofollow). Besides, if a website linking to you is manually penalized by Google, it ...

If you are moving your site from http to https, you would need to submite the https site as a new site. I was advised that I need not do it and over a period of time I saw that the stats were not reliable - the index status, crawl errors etc. Suddently, I saw a big drop in the indexed pages as well. But the actual site traffic was not affected in any way; ...

While for the purposes of SEO, it may be true that the order is not significant, it is not true when considering other things like security, content (character) display, or loading speed. It is a good idea to order your page’s head roughly thus (presuming HTML5 for syntax): <head> So far in the document, you should not have used any non-ASCII ...

Like everything regarding SEO and domain structure, the answer is 'it depends' By operating a website with a subdomain you do not own, you are always at the mercy of the owner of the domains - this is why any .edu subdomains you create via afraid.org cannot be indexed by Google, else they would be subject to abuse. But other subdomain examples showcase ...

From a pure SEO perspective, start both businesses on the same website, because it takes content and size to rank. By starting together, they will support each other in attracting traffic which might be coming for one reason and be interested in the other. It is ok to have two phone numbers too, one for each service. Users won't complain if they are ...

It partly depends on whether you might want to sell the businesses separately. If the two businesses have a mixed website, you couldn't sell the business separately and have the website go along with it. Also see this very similar question from somebody who asks about a funeral home and several cemeteries: Can different properties be on multiple domains or ...

It depends on your clients\the segments you serve as service provider. What do they expect from a professional or from an agency? Do they need both or they just need one? I'm not talking about "state of the industry" or "average", but I'm talking about the specific people\segment\niche you want to serve\provide your service. It's more about marketing. If ...

This is an easy one. Keyword density is a myth- sorta. At least it is now. What is important to note is how the terms are used and not how many times the terms are used. SEOs like to intentionally confuse the issue to keep you dependent upon them and paying for tools and advice. P.T. Barnum used to say that there is a sucker born every minute. In SEO, the ...

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 ...

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 ...

Doing a 301 redirect, you should be fine. I would not try and redirect each image by name, but rather make sure that each new image has the same name, just another file extension. This should make redirecting a simple regex operation. Having said that, I suggest using http://www.smalleranimals.com/thumb.htm especially since you have 10k images. Here are ...

From a business perspective, should the day come that they want to sell one of the businesses, it'll be much easier to show the specific interest in business a/b if they have separate websites. From a design/ux perspective, are there any benefits/shortfalls that they can gain from having their customers associate the two services together? I'm sure there's ...

I do not know your businesses, however, I would think that there is overlap in the keywords used which would make for a stronger performing site if combined as one site. As well, it is far easier to maintain a single site. It is not uncommon for a single site to contain more than one offering or division. I am not sure if you are operating as two separate ...

Google usually only shows the meta description if it contains the keywords for which the user searched. You must be using the company name in the meta description you wrote, but you are probably not using the other keywords for which you are searching in the meta description. For example. Your site could be called "Bob's Beach Toys". And your meta ...

To be eligible for this feature, the URL parameters must be configured in key/value pairs like item=swedish-fish or category=gummy-candy in the URL http://www.example.com/product.php?item=swedish-fish&category=gummy-candy. http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/configuring-url-parameters-in-webmaster.html

The URL parameter page is there for old-fashioned URLs with query strings attached. For example: http://www.example.com/index.php?A=1&B=2 This page should explain more: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6080550

Google always prefers original webpages rather than duplicated ones. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/66359?hl=en Google tries hard to index and show pages with distinct information. This filtering means, for instance, that if your site has a "regular" and "printer" version of each article, and neither of these is blocked with a noindex ...

There is an alternative method which is to use a RSS feed where you would push your new post/articles/Urls when they are ready. You would need to submit your RSS feed to PubSubHubBub. Google would come and visit it frequently to check whether you have published updated or new content. My question is can I follow the procedure of weekly generating and ...

It's a good practice to update the sitemap every time your site receives a new page. This can be easily done automatically in PHP, Google supports up to 50,000 urls within one site map and then your need to split into multiples with a limit of 50,000 each. If your finding the process is slowing down the server then its time to upgrade hosting or change the ...

You need to get a 301 redirect command added to the "wordpress.com" web server. The basic free service doesn't provide this capability. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/is-there-a-301-redirects-manager?replies=2#post-2356582 None of the non-Enterprise subscriptions support adding your own plugin https://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ There are 2 ...

If your site is useful, relevant, and does not participate in spammy practices, there should be no adverse effects for using the word "free". I have worked on legitimate erectile dysfunction (big pharma) sites, which is normally a spam-heavy subject, and they rank just fine. Now, if you are buying links, link to "bad neighborhoods", and cloak keywords - yes, ...

No there is no SEO name for such a distance.

You can consider to use .htaccess to redirect Googlebot always to www., and keep canonical urls to the www. version. Redirect people with 302 redirections, obviously. If it's not a good solution, maybe there's another road: you can consider to not redirect all your traffic to ww1. or ww2. Keep 34% of your visitors on www., then split the rest to ww1 and ...

With regards to the WebPageTest issue about the openh264 zip file, I honestly don't know but I suspect Alex Berry is probably right in his comment, though I couldn't confirm this with any information I was able to find about it. With regards to the PageSpeed Insights recommendation to use lossless compression, I suspect you will have to change file format ...
