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. ...

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).

Check your file and folder permissions and set them to the correct ones. Have a look here. http://www.electronicworkplace.com/latest-updates/wordpress-correct-permissions-for-files-and-folders If you have the correct permissions then it won't ask you for ftp details. If that doesn't work perhaps you have an ownership problem. The other way to update is ...

Don't run both on the same folder. Install WP on a separate folder, copy as fast as you can, adjust all URLs (to keep SEO), and then flip the switch (replace one site with the other). I have been doing migrations for more than 6 years now, and rushing a migration will surely make you lose page rank, SEO, etc. Make sure everything is working, make 301 ...

Check wp-config.php to make certain it has all the right configuration settings in place, as well as any other information it may need, such as DB name, access and the like.

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.

Wordpress, by defalt, WILL allow you to do this. Open your wp-config.php file and add the following line: define( 'UPLOADS', '/media/' ); Change /media/ to whatever directory you want to use. A word of caution: If you already have media uploaded, the path to that media is stored in the database. Changing the path will not update the stored paths, and ...

Wordpress by default will not allow you to do that. If you wish to change the url of uploads folder, you will have to use an additional plugin. This plugin will give you the following option so that you can modify your upload path: Here's another plugin (haven't tested this one personally) that will let you do the same thing.

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.

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 ...

Google Webmasters also explains why the URLs are still indexed with their YouTube video. It takes a good while for the actual removal process of the old links to happen. Also, you have to remember, Google is indexing, re-indexing, and deleting records from their Search Engine all of the time at a massive rate already, but there is trillions upon trillions ...

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 ...

The licence is GPL 2.0 which you can read here http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html It is for noncommercial use, which means it can't be used for commercial purposes. You can put adverts but not distribute it commercially (noncommercial distribution is outlined in the licence link above).

This is confusing because there are 2 pieces of information here that are not intuitive. First is the license that this theme is distributed under, GLPv2. Short answers is that GPLv2 allows you to modify and distribute as you see fit. You can ready about the specifics here - http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html The second piece of information is the ...

No difference at all as far as crawlers are able to access them (with all your valid rules) with HTTP 200 response.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

All three of the methods work for what you are trying to do. The question is which are you willing to use? OR which is easier for you to do? As for my personal preference, I prefer Hashbang. For me, is the easiest to pick up and use and understand the documentation and implementation into working code.

Hi to be honest to the best of my knowledge the most common WP hacks are either weak PW security that has been compromised and allowed malicious code / updates to be made (consider the number of WP admins that didnt change the default UN 'wp-admin' thats already half of the auth guessed). Or for historic installs / ones with the offending versions bad ...

Canonical is the correct way as suggested above. I would also remove this parameter from Google webmaster tools (canonical is not a directive but rather a suggestion as far as search engines are concerned, also - removing the parameters from WMT is a speedier solution). In WMT navigate to Crawl > URL Parameters > Configure URL parameters, then edit the ...

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). ...

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. ...
