Meta tags can go in any order. The order won't cause you any issues unless for some reason you have a massive <head> and search engines give up on reading it all ;) (it'd have to be very big for that though so don't worry) In regards to the Wordpress action, you can use the priority parameter on this to run your hooked function in a different order. ...

On WordPress install a plugin to do 301 redirects... Yoast SEO and Redirection plugin both do this. They allow you to input the old URLs, and map them individually to the new URL's. I would advised first making a spreadsheet with all your old urls indexed by google, and submitted by your old xml sitemaps.

I have them disallowed in my robots.txt... but it doesn't change anything, Google still show them, also on those pages contact, services,... I use Noindex from Yoast. Still no result.

Speak to the hosting provider and ask them if they do outbound IP or DNS blocking and if so what the policy with those blocks are. There could be a DNS issue connecting to mailchimp, or could be a firewall restriction. They may be blocking access to mailchimp for fear of it being used by webmasters to send spam in which case they may allow access if you ...

The best method would be to ask your hosting provider, but if you have SSH access you could do a simple ping, curl or even traceroute. If you do not have SSH access then you may be able to run this PHP script: SOURCE if (!$file) $status = -1; // Site is down else { fclose($file); $status = ($stoptime - $starttime) * 1000; $status = ...

RewriteRule ^lp/?$ /index.php [L] This fails to match because your actual URL is probably /lp/index.php (or whatever your DirectoryIndex is), not simply /lp/. (That is after Apache has internally mapped the URL to a filesystem path). So, try changing your RewriteRule pattern: RewriteRule ^lp/index\.php$ /index.php [L] Specifically, there is a ...

I have to agree and disagree with the comment from @Simon Hayter. The contents list is a very good feature for the user experience as it allows them to jump to content further down the page without needing to scroll all the way down, and by using ID's for all of your H3 elements they can be linked to directly using the structure file.html#id-of-h3-element ...

Most posts about WordPress robots.txt are totally wrong. You should not block this in robots.txt I suggest to use only this robots.txt for WordPress blog: User-agent: * Disallow: /blog/?s=* If you block WordPress directories like admin and includes and content, then you're going to block CSS, JavaScript and other assets for Googlebot, and that will ...

You can apply an Advanced (inline) Filter to your All Pages report like this: Alternatively, you could use "Begins With" to match everything under the "sport" folder (same thing applies to other folders you are interested in, including "entertainment". This can also be done in Custom Reports or with advanced segments, too.

We have also faced similar issue on our website. This happened because initially you must have disallowed your home page in robots.txt. Now even if you allow, it takes sometime around a week-two to reflect in google indexes. I have tested your robots.txt and it looks fine.

Regardless of whether you were ever hacked, those links will also be coming from other sites. They don't hack your site only; they hack sites by the thousands (using automated methods which attack known bugs of popular CMS's) and have each site link to each other in a classic link exchange SEO strategy. So potentially hundreds of other sites also link to ...
