What is the best practise to apply SEO for these to show up in the search engine for their username? You would need to include the username as part of the page title element. Also link to these pages using the username as the anchor text. Including the username (naturally) in the page content will also help. LinkedIn includes the user's name as the ...

Google seems a little fuzzy about it, but I would say no, you shouldn't mark responsive pages as mobile. The page you linked to states: A Mobile Sitemap can contain only URLs that serve mobile web content. Any URLs that serve only non-mobile web content will be ignored by the Google crawling mechanisms. Taking this exactly as written, it could mean ...

Could each of your users maintain their own sitemap? If so, you could use a sitemap index. Its intended use is for when your sitemap is too big, I believe, but you could as well list all the sitemaps you expect your users to create. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"> ...

First, we have to assume that all of your users want all of their files to be indexed by search engines. Second, we need a method to get the sitemap to Google. Especially in your case, the easiest way is to use robots.txt. Sitemap: http://www.example.com/sitemap.xml Third, you need a sitemap. If you don't already have a way to generate a sitemap for all ...

Google considers your entire domain name to be a single website. Your sitemap should include URLs from both areas of your site. You'll want to register your base site (just the domain name) in Google Webmaster Tools. You may also register the directories in Google Webmaster Tools separately. They would give you some insight into the keywords keywords ...

If you want to prevent leeching, a better method would be to block referrers. You can set up your server so that the video is only served when it has your site as the 'Referer' header. Or use a blacklist and only block sites as/when they become a problem. That way your video URLs stay static and you can put them in the sitemap.

As John Conde says in the comments: If the URLs of your videos keep changing, regardless of source, they aren't good candidates for sitemaps. By the time the search engines read the sitemap those videos are gone. It sounds like your pages have URLs that are not changing, but your URLs for the video content is changing frequently. In that case a ...

Sitemaps have almost no effect on rankings. You don't need a sitemap to have your pages rank well. In fact, it has been suggested that using sitemaps is a red herring. You instead should be spending time making sure your site links to all your content. See The Sitemap Paradox. The only time that I can imagine that submitting fresh sitemaps regularly ...

Google will not crawl any doc with the robots.txt disallowed. Not ordinarily, anyway...site maps included.

Google looks at things differently than we do. Sorry. That is just the way it is. Sometimes you have to see things from Google's perspective before the data makes sense. The Google Webmaster Tools data lags behind a couple of days and some elements a bit more. As far as the various Index Counts, this explains why the difference. However, there is no direct ...

Just delete your website sitemap on Google web master tools, and resubmit your sitemap. Make sure you removed all your unwanted pages, posts and elements from your coding structure. If your are using word press it is better to use Yoast plugin for sitemap because it gives an option to choose which pages, posts and elements to get added on your sitemap and ...

That is fine. It is not always possible to link all of your pages. I have almost 600,000 pages not linked except with cross links between some of them. They are all in the sitemap. Google and Bing are fine with this. They have to be. They do not write the rules for the web.
