If you do 301 redirect in this case, you should canonicalise the original page and the duplicate and pick one over the other. This tells Google, this is the main page and ignore the others. <link rel="canonical" href="example.com/tag/url" /> Add that to both pages, href should be which ever page you want to be the original.

Tags in wordpress are keywords assigned to posts to help with the internal search of Wordpress. However, wordpress is smart enough to detect posts based on the actual content. So tags are technically not required. Moreover, in addition to the problem you've described, tags in posts create additional URLs like example.com/tag/url which leeches off the ...

This isn't a duplicate content problem per se. You are not being penalized, right? What's happening is the algorithm is functioning as expected. Two different pages are ranking for some search, but because these are archives you aren't being assessed the duplicate content penalty. I'm willing to bet no one said Google wouldn't index both if it thought these ...

Your page code consists entirely of: <html> <head><title>DOMAIN.COM</title><meta name="keywords" content=""</head> <frameset rows="100%", *" border="0" frameborder="0"><frame src="http://domain.com" name="DOMAIN.COM"></frameset> </html> This is loading the non-www version of the site as an iframe ...

On a WordPress site WordPress uses mod_rewrite to handle the URL routing (pretty URLs) - which I assume you are using - so you should avoid using a mod_alias redirect (Redirect, RedirectMatch, etc.) in this instance. (Different modules run at different times, regardless of the order of the directives in the .htaccess file, so you can get unexpected results/...

You can use this (usually) to make an HTML copy of the site that does not have dynamic content (or backend, admin, etc.). Then just upload the HTML to the directory of your choice and configure it to be served... maybe "http://archive.yoursiteurl.com" HtTrack It's been years since I used it, but it works (worked) quite well.

If you are going to buy a premium theme for WordPress (or any theme/template for any CMS), you are better off buying one from a developer who has a track record of updating the theme as WordPress evolves. This doesn't just apply for premium themes...when assessing free themes, check the changelog for the theme and see if the developer releases regular ...

Yes, you can. Depends memory limit on your hosting space. You can minimise and maximise memory limit using Php.ini file configuration.

Your third option is definitely the way to go - leave all the bloat behind and go static. I recommend Jekyll for managing the static site since it has the largest number of users, which makes finding tutorials and troubleshooting answers easier. There are two approaches you can take, either export your WP site to Jekyll-ready output with a plugin or set up ...

Have you verified info@companyname.com actually exists by sending email from domain@domain.com using a browser or client? You can verify DNS settings in the google apps admin dashboard. If the mx records are not set up correctly then you will need to fix that issue first. If email does exist, then the best way (maybe not the easiest way) I have found to ...

If the pages of the forum no longer exist, then you may do either of the following:- Block your forum with robots.txt and then manually submit the URLs in Google Search Console for removal. Ignore these warnings and they will eventually go away. Google has those pages in its index and so when they're coming back to re-crawl they're getting the 404 error ...

First of all the WWW and NON-WWW for the domain should never be an issues as in the world of the web is it the same, Wordpress and other CMS frameworks have made this to freaking complex over a non issue. If your site is setup right at the web server level it should be able to handle both out of the box. Apache and IIS allow for servername aliasing, ...

Can this impact my site negatively? Not usually, for two reasons. One, Google is very aware when a site is using WordPress and the algorithm is smart enough on its own to know the difference between content displayed on a category or tag archive and on the post/custom post type itself. If you really want to be paranoid about this, create custom excerpts ...

WordPress makes a very nice getting started guide over at the WordPress Codex I'll highlight a few I use on all of my sites: File permissions For Directories find /path/to/your/wordpress/install/ -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \; For Files find /path/to/your/wordpress/install/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \; Move wp-config.php up 1 directory than the ...

If you redirect with mod_rewrite, you can set up a rewrite condition such that it will redirect everything except wp-admin: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/wp-admin RewriteRule (.*) http://mywixsite.example.com/$1 [R]

Simply moving your site around to a new ISP or reloading WordPress as a fresh install is usually insufficient to stop a hack like this. Something, somewhere in your site is subject to a remote exploit and/or you're not actually cleaning anything with your attempts. If you have a vulnerable theme or plugin file, the hackers can activate it no matter which ...

Check your site works without enforcing the HTTP->HTTPS redirect. If this does work, ...

The short answer is that it depends on how you chose to protect your privacy. Terms vary by Registrar and by extension. For example, .je domains never reveal anything more than the Registrant's name regardless of the seller's policy - it is a decision made by the Registry managing the extension. The TL;DR is "Choose the TLD and Registrar wisely". If you ...

How your blog is built on the page makes no difference when it comes to SEO. The fact that it says "blog" doesn't even make a real difference in SEO. The whole point of having a blog on your site is to improve SEO through linking, fresh content, and keywords. An average site may have no need to change most of its content over time. This makes the site go ...

Based in previous experience, you will be totally fine using a Blog category instead of the Posts Page. A number of years ago I created a posts-only website in WP, never had a problem with indexing and so on. As stated before, google cares about 2 things, Content and Recognition. If your content is great, it will get the recognition it deserves, sure you ...

Google cares only about content (unique, correct headerts etc. ) and incoming links (from good sites with similar content) . Nothing more, nothing less :D

Simple anwser is : Install some redirect plugin that use header 301 (for example https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/) and simply redirect non-existed links (get a list form google search console) to existing content. This will reduce 404 errors ,and you will not lose movement on site
