No, you should be ok. It won't have a specific impact on your SEO.

resulting in multiple rel=canonical links on the same page pointing to different galleries That is not allowed. Only one canonical per page. If you use hashbangs, then Google will call the escaped fragment version of the page to your server. It should serve the HTML version of the page with the corresponding gallery. Another solution is to add a ...

You don't necessarily need to externally redirect. You could keep the (URL) filename the same and either internally rewrite to the actual .jpg file, or just make sure you send the correct Content-Type header. It is, after all, the mime-type that determines the file type, not the file extension (although this might be a bit confusing). Obviously if you ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Kissmetrics and Social Media Examiner both have great posts on getting this type of information both by using tools and hacks. I don't think you'll be able to get all the information you want such as number of visitors but you can use other numbers like fan count or new likes as a proxy for metrics you are looking for. For scale and long-term viability, I ...

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 ...

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 ...

If the meta tag is correctly placed in your header and Google doesn't show it, it means Google thinks this meta description is not relevant for search results. Make sure they are relevant and even then you can't be certain Google thinks they are. Also, if I understand correctly, you only added meta description to your homepage? Why didn't you add them to ...

As of 2015, Googlebot is rendering pages including running JavaScript. It is then indexing all the content it sees: static and generated. To make sure that your JavaScript generated content is seen by Googlebot: Ensure that your CSS and JS files are not blocked by robots.txt Use the "Fetch and Render" feature of Fetch as Google in Google Webmaster ...

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 ...

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 ...

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; ...

I completely understand what you are trying to do as I have run into similar situations with my real estate clients and their agents. For example: bob-smith.realestateco.com/how-to-buy-a-home mary-jane.realestateco.com/how-to-buy-a-home www.realestateco.com/how-to-buy-a-home Here the company wants to rank for this page but each agent wants to have their ...

You need to get a 301 redirect command added to the "wordpress.com" web server.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

If you are only changing of domain name while keeping the rest of the URLs identical, then handling redirects for some special pages separately will not provide any SEO benefits. Bulk is fine. If the URLs change on top of changing of domain name, you must make sure the redirects are correctly implemented for each page and that might mean using special cases ...

But what if he's searching for "cake"? Will a site offering "free cake" rank lower because it will be considered spam-like? Google's objective is to serve the most relevant content as fast as possible to user queries. So if user are querying for 'free cake', Google will serve 'free cake' content of high quality and skip 'free cake' content of low ...

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 your site is useful, relevant, and does not participate in spammy practices, there should be no adverse effects for using the word "free".

For starters, I don't think that your domain name is spammy in terms of SEO but most importantly the words you use in your domain don't have much SEO value anymore. Here is a very insightful and data driven article on URL length and URL keywords from Search Engine Journal. Regarding SPAM. I would check to make sure that your domain is not blacklisted. ...

A single site linking to yours is unlikely to trigger any of Google's spam alerts for your domain. Google penalizes a site when it sees a pattern of spammy links from many domains. Your site will also have plenty of legitimate, non-spammy inbound links. Those good links will innoculate your site against ill effects from links from few bad sites. My own ...

Yes links like this can potently be hurting your site, and that's why Google introduced the disavow fearure.

You can find some more info on ...

We have had the same "problem" of GWT taking a long time to update the meta descriptions (or realise there is no duplicate any more). I don't know what it uses exactly, but it can literally take a few months for the issue to no longer show up in GWT. Even with resubmitting the pages in GWT does not help the situation. GWT is nowhere close to real time, ...

Is this additional traffic going to have negative effects on SEO? The traffic by itself at extremely high numbers may have an impact because of all the processing the server must process for every user. But what makes this traffic cause negative effects is the postings that result on your site. So if you have 500,000 robots within a day posting a ...

Try removing the brand name "one averee bay hotel" from all link title attributes as it isn't needed as much as other tags and is seen as keyword stuffing. Link titles are used for sitelinks so simply having the page title instead of one averee bay hotel - [page name] could help you qualify for sitelinks when people search for your brand name. This would ...

You generally cannot outrank established websites for these terms due to amount of historical backlinks and other ranking factors aside from just on-page content. You can, however, try and outrank for long-tail queries first then build authority on the topic. This is more of a long-term play and is a great strategy for taking some traffic from the big guys. ...

If you have the word sitemap some where, such as in the URL, heading of the page and links pointing to it, I think Google's pretty smart to figure out that its your sitemap for users. Also if you were spamming with a page full of links, they would generally be external. However to make your sitemap actually usable for users, if you have thousands of ...

Google will automatically crawl links as it finds them unless it runs into a link labeled as "nofollow" or a page with a robots tag containing "nofollow" in it.

It depends. First: what are the websites you want to outrank? Second: how many backlinks your webpage receives from good sources?

Categorize everything and make a hiearchy (tree) to represent each product. You already have your domain. Here I'm gonna call it example.com.

What is not visible to users (ever) is not taken into account by Google for ranking. Hidding SFM_Tooltip is not a solution. One option in your case is to put keywords in your image's filename.
