comment Why aren't we supposed to use <table> in a design?
@ParthianShot Actually, <address> should only contain article author contact info or site owner contact info, but postal addresses matching those descriptions are actually fine. html5doctor.com/the-address-element (just take note that neither html5doctor.com nor the spec write the rules very understandably about using postal addresses)

comment Why are my posts omitted from Google search results when my site is listed in it?
Sounds like you'll want to create a sitemap, add it so it registers on google webmaster tools, and compare the tracked pages to the full listing.

comment SEO benefit of H1 tags on the homepage
Well, here's an interesting example of why it might be useful to actually use h1: Assuming you have a logo on the homepage, how is any search engine supposed to understand that the priority of the logo's alt text is high, without it being wrapped in a "high priority" element like h1? <header> is nice too, but you could probably have a lot of images in any <header>, so what in your source code is the equivalent <h1> item for your homepage as written, and would a search engine spider really understand that?

comment Do server stat tools work with CDNs?
Yeah, there are issues that you have to deal with, (e.g. "I just fixed some css in my css file or js in my js file, now how do I cachebust to ensure that people get the new stuff?"), but by definition, the overall benefits are almost always worth learning the issues for, because your problem is now "people already have the assets, how do I update them?" instead of "people are getting my key assets too slowly, how can I give them faster?".

comment Self-referential hreflang attributes for single language website?
Actually, the lang attribute is sometimes useful for correcting problems. For example, I had a product listing page on a site lacking the lang='en' attribute that google chrome thought needed to be translated from Filipino.

comment How quickly can expect that my new site will get ranked by Alexa?
@FiascoLabs I have never tasted snakeoil, but I was hoping that it tasted like olive oil, and now you've upset that hope.

comment Do server stat tools work with CDNs?
It certainly depends on which CDN you use, you'll have to read the specific docs there, but in some cases the request will be routed -through- the CDN before hitting your server at all and there will be a list of file types that the CDN will then cache (.png, .jpg, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .mp3, .js, .css, .swf for example), and maybe it'll additionally cache page content (.html, .php) based on your caching headers, giving you control. Generally, a CDN of that nature has to allow you some control of whether a html page caches because they have no way of knowing if the content updates dynamically.
