Check if the these pages are linked from any other page. Remove those links and mark the errors as fixed. Make sure there are no backlinks on that pages. If there are any backlinks coming to that page make sure you display 404 and submit all those domains to disavow file.

If the website is crawled and indexed properly then you dont need to worry about sitemap. It important only when you have large number of pages. However to expedite the process you go to webmaster > Crawl > Fetch as Google - enter the url of your sitemap, usually it is sitemap.xml.

If your pages are being indexed properly, that is all you need. Google uses the sitemap primarily to audit if they can properly crawl your site and not as a source of URLs TO crawl your site. Sitemaps are only necessary when a site is extremely large or has content behind a paywall or login. Otherwise, Google will largely ignore the sitemap. There is ...

To clarify, you want to be able to develop the wordpress site while the site continues to work at Wix, right? You need to make sure your hosting service supports temporary URLs like http://123.456.789.000/~user then change the 2 URLS in your wordpress dashboard settings to that. Then you will be able to access the dashboard via http://123.456.789.000/~user/...

This is possible but be aware that Tomcat and Apache would have to be accessed over different port so if someone wanted to access the Tomcat app they would have to access it using the Tomcat port which is port 8080 by default. If you don't want to have the port at the end of the domain (as http is port 80) then you would need to run two separate servers one ...

All a CNAME record does is handle address resolution. In otherwords if client.bigmultisite.com has an A record of 1.1.1.1 if you then CNAME www.clientsite.com to client.bigmultisite.com the users browser will be given the IP of 1.1.1.1 to go to with the domain name of www.clientsitecom. What you would need to do it either have it running as the only site on ...

There are a range of plugins you can add to your WordPress installation which will trigger a 404 error instead of redirecting to the homepage when a page could not be found. I am not going to recommend one as ProWebmasters is not designed for recommending software or plugins but what I will do is give you this link http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=wordpress+hard+404+...

If you are concerned about the blog getting compromised you can set up another account on another hosting provider. If you host your DNS with your main provider, which I am assuming you do, then you will need to set up an A record using the Advanced Zone Editor.Point the A record to the new account IP address and start blogging. I would suggest hosting the ...

There is no need to prevent Google from indexing your reviews as Google can detect user contributed content and treats it as such. In addition you would simply need to monitor the reviews and have your own moderation toolkit in place to remove reviews that are obviously spam or appear to be affecting your Google SERP ranking.

Yes. By linking to categories from the main navigation, every page links to every category. This indicates the importance of those pages, provides better user experience, provides many more paths for search engine crawlers, and so on… in short, better for performance all-round, including SEO.

As I mentioned in my comment, this behavior was the result of attempting to log in to the site at an address that was parked on the site, rather than at the main URL of the site. Thanks for the assistance and apologies for the confusion.

...with other web sniffing tools the HTTP HEADERS are correct. Tell the programmers of those web sniffing tools that they need to reprogram those tools because I looked at the HTML source code of your page and things need changing. What can I do? Stop confusing the robots. I look at your code and you have TWO title tags as follows separated by ...

If your site shows Google what is basically advertising content that is unrelated to the actual site, you've been hacked. If you have enough knowledge of WordPress and also server security to detect and clean the hack, go for it. If you are at all uncertain about how to do this, hire a professional security service to do it for you such as Sucuri or ...

I suggest you add meta title and meta description for every page. It will give you more control over what is displayed in SERP. Sometimes Google will alter your titles and descriptions but having those meta tags should help.

If you use cPanel, you can change the setting through there: Select Advanced > Indexes (might be called Index Manager depending on your version of cPanel) Click public_html (or whatever your web root is) Select No Indexing Click Save

Your understanding is correct. The sequential link types are for documents that are "part of a sequence". I would only use it for blog posts that belong together ("… Part 1", "… Part 2"), for a blog post that is paginated, or for blogs where the order of the posts matters (e.g., in a diary, where each day has its own post). Or in other words, only in cases ...

Rel="prev" and rel="next" is used to group related pages together. Since you say your article is a single article (that fits all on one page without requiring the user to click a link), you can remove rel="prev" and rel="next". If in the future, you split your long article into pages, then you need to use rel="prev" and rel="next" to connect those pages ...

There are two WordPress plugins I've used for managing 301 redirects: Redirection & Simple 301 Redirects. Either plugin makes it easy to define redirects from Old -> New. The WordPress Codex also has a guide to Creating an Error 404 Page. If that doesn't work, you may try contacting your web host to see if there's a configuration option you're ...

The main domain record (foosite.com), unlike whatever.foosite.com cannot be answered as CNAME, only A or AAAA. If I remember it properly, it is by RFC. Solution: e.g. amazon has tricky way. The key here is not 'the main record cannot have cname record' but 'the main record cannot be answered as cname record'. They made their own record type - alias. The ...
