comment Google Analitycs says source is Search Engine (100%)
If you're using the standard GA tracking code and haven't modified it, it will be correct. If you've modified it, it would be a good idea to post what you're doing.

comment Generating RSS Feeds Automatically?
Unfortunately, it looks like you're stuck having to manage the files manually. Alternatively either hire a developer or implement an off-the-shelf CMS package and convert your static website into a dynamic one so that you can automate RSS feeds and other features. If you plan to run a large site, database driven is really the only option - it won't take long to become unmanageable if its all static.

comment Looking for a specific CMS
I have my own solution which I use on websites I make for my clients; it allows you to edit only what needs to be editable, and keeps all of the HTML/CSS completely out of it. If you want to know more, click my profile & get in touch.

comment short and friendly URL for affiliate links
I would try redirecting to a simpler, short URL on the same machine first, see if that works. If so, then try a short, simple URL on another host, and if so, build up your URL till you find whats causing the problem. Two guesses - one, the space between '301' and 'L', or more likely, some character(s) in the long URL that need to be escaped (with a backslash).

comment webhosting with IP access
Wouldn't you need a dedicated server? A shared host which puts many sites on the same machine is not going to give you access by IP address alone (likely you can get it with /~username on the end, but that sounds like its of no help either).

comment Recommended way on implementing 301 redirects
Well, there's more than one way to put a redirect in - an Apache's config directly, in .htaccess and in page code. I was merely pointing out that its easy to make a typo (particularly in page code) that means the redirect doesn't work as you think it should be. Just saying its an area where its worth double checking your work :)

comment Should I use a canonical URL?
If the content is the same, or basically the same, then yeah, add a canonical tag to tell Google your preferred URL. If they're (too) different, don't count on it working that way.

comment Landing page not appearing on google
Google can be quite clever about reading CSS and Javascript to determine when content is actually visible. Lots of black-hat tricks like hidden/collapsed div's and text the same colour as the background, and so on can be ignored or worse, cause you to be de-indexed.

comment Free domains for site names?
Not really understanding this question - if you have a long/ugly domain name because it was free to get, then buying a domain name and redirecting is kinda pointless, you may as well just get some hosting on the domain name you actually want?

comment Recommended way on implementing 301 redirects
One important thing to do, though it may seem obvious - is check the response using httpfox or similar. Whether you do it in the server config, .htaccess or on the page itself (all of which are valid), its easy to make a typo and end up serving a page that would tell a USER its gone, but without giving the correct 301 signal to robots to tell them its gone too. If you have a redirect but you're still serving 200, the page will never get de-indexed. Obvious, but i've seen it happen (and done it myself).
