If the page content is only based on the user agent and is not accessible by different URLs then the search engines are only ever going to see one version of the page and that is the version that will be indexed. But this is also a problem for users. Users don't always search for help (or whatever "instruction" you are providing) using the device that they ...

As for whether to use a sub-domain or directory, the answer is deceptively simple as I write in this answer (ignore title): Any evidence that subdomain can help with domain authority and vice-versa? As for the suggestion that linking between sub-domains is particularly good for search performance, that is just plain foolish. I will explain briefly. Google, ...

Google has a spec for AJAX (SPA) applications, https://developers.google.com/webmasters/ajax-crawling/docs/specification. basically you need to provide the server the same content, but by using classic web site (request-response) technology. I call it a core site.

It depends on how you are doing the JS. Google wont index dynamic content (usually) so if you are pulling these items from a db or remote server then you could have an issue. If you are just rotating through a finite array of items by alternating css classes and those are in the static html but hidden (a jquery approach) then the site should be ok.

Google has said they they want sites to move to HTTPS and they will even give a slight rankings boost to sites that do so. Your redirect rule looks like a fine way to migrate your site from HTTP to HTTPS. Some webmasters have migrated to HTTPS recently have found that that rankings have suffered as a result. There is certainly some SEO risk with the ...

Yes, it will. The http and https version will be seen as individual pages and thus also create duplicate content. The solution is to use a 301-permanent redirect, which your code does. This will transfer the juice to the destination of the redirection, so you're good. Also, adding a canonical tag to indicate which is the prefered url is good practice. ...

It can actually give you a better position in seo, especially if you want to be listed in google, and your code detects a mobile device a display a properly-formatted page to that mobile device. But the simple way to do this is in PHP. To start, create index.php containing these contents: <!-- common header text/code goes here --> <?php ...

How have you presented your sites address?? If it is presented as California, you are likely experiencing a two-fold effect whereas the term California is explicit and well understood as well as an exact match. Semantics is not needed. Keep in mind that the accepted abbreviation for California is CA not cal and not calif. It is not terribly likely that ...

When migrating from HTML to WordPress , the main thing to be kept in mind is the permalink structure.By default HTML pages has the extension of .html while WordPress URLs have no extensions.(You can activate them though). Now Google treats a www.website/page.html and www.website/page as two different URLs. Generally there are two options :- 1) Change the ...

You could use Javascript to modify the head, but as search engines don't generally run Javascript that wouldn't work. What you probably want to do is PHP output buffering as described in the accepted answer to this question. By the time you get to the end of the page you know what needs to go in the head. Then you can output the head and release everything ...

I think this is a good way to solve this problem. I read something similar yesterday at moz.com Q&A Section (actually i thought it was the exactly same question as here) and it says cannonicalisation quite like 301 redirects in that case. You better read that yourself.

Google get tons of request to index many of pages in search result, so simply they ignore many of request, even with high quality of pages that have no reputation. Many of webpages does not have sitemap, but they are indexed on Google search result, just because of do-follow backlinks. For example developer.android.com. there is no any sitemap on root ...
