There is no difference to search engines between those two methods. You can generate it like you want. Moreover, you need to know blocking a page with robots.txt is not the perfect way to prevent indexing of pages. You can read this question for more information.

Adsense ads don't always fill all the available slots. Google shows reporting for this in your AdSense account. Log in and go to "Performance Reports" > "Bid Types". You will see a line item for "(Unmatched ad requests)" that indicates how often ads don't show up. You can get ads to show up more often by: Opting in to all ad types: image, text, and ...

Regarding comments under your question, I think a good option would be to choose a domain name like joelblog.com because you create a blog by passion. Choosing a domain name like expertthings.com could be great if your target audience are possible clients but it's not your case. However, you can buy the domain name you prefer, it's just a question of taste. ...

You can't include php code in text widgets from the Wordpress admin panel by default. You've added far too much code in your question (instead of just including the relevant snippets - use pastbin for full contents of files). But you can add the ability to include php in text widgets by adding the following in your theme's functions.php file. ...

From what I am reading, and the way you are describing it... you are already doing everything you can to improve performance. I see no issues at all loading your website. Yes, Google is going to complain about some issues, and the bloat of WordPress also. Does it actually really matte that Google is complaining a little regarding your site? As long as the ...

The Wordpress plugin can't compress your javascript files as these aren't served by Wordpress, your Web server serves these files directly. I'd suggest trying to use mod_deflate for compression instead if your host has it installed. If so you can do this with a small change to your htaccess file (and you could then remove the WP plugin). The slow initial ...

I've had a quick test and this should do the trick: RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)$ /date/$1/$2 [R=301,L] You may also need to exclude this from the redirect to the index.php page by adding RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(date) [NC] so it should look like this # BEGIN WordPress <IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine On ...

In SEO point of view, there is no risk to have a widget with the same text on all pages. Search engines like Google are capable of detecting that it's not the main content of each page. In general, duplicate content issues are generated by duplicating the main content of a page (not header, footer or a sidebar).

Unfortunately, with WordPress you will not be able to know which plugin is consuming resources. You will have to disable the plugins one by one and then try. You can even optimize the database so that it does not consumes much resources. It may be helpful to indicate which hosting plan you have with GoDaddy.

It shows OK on my iPhone. I checked the demo page of this theme (justblue) on my phone and the only major difference I noticed is the non-responsive adsense block on mobile causing some trouble with responsiveness. You can try disabling that block for mobile devices or using a responsive block instead.

There might be better ways to do this but when stuck, my default tool is Sublime Text. Download all site files, download the database, then use ST to do a find (or find and replace) for the old domain (and/or IP address). Be careful though, WordPress uses serialized strings.

The home page of a website generally ranks higher than most other pages, especially new pages which don't have many incoming links and are newly indexed. Google, and presumably other search engines, dynamically generate titles and descriptions based on the query. The fact that your homepage, which features posts in the traditional blog style (reverse ...

I am not exactly sure I am following you so I will repeat what I think I understand. You have a blog home page that list recent post snippets using the post titles and some text. When you search tor the title of a particular post, the home page is listed in the search engine result page (SERP) first. The scenario that comes to mind is this. Your post has ...

Use canonical URLs for your content pages. Then whenever Google crawls or find a link to one with the referrer in the query string it will automatically associate it with the canonical URL. The canonical URL will be the URL Google shows in the search results. It also prevents your site from appearing to have duplicate content.

The CMS you can use doesn't really matter for SEO unless the CMS has been thinking regarding SEO (it's the case for WordPress) There are too many possible reasons, so hard to answer you on this. However, be careful on duplicate content issues if two websites have the same content (main website and a subdomain are two different websites for search engines). ...
