Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment Someone has cloned my WordPress blog, how do I prevent it from hurting SEO?
I see this now seems to have been "fixed" - the cloned site is no longer "cloning". How did you achieve this in the end?

comment Content length VS document size for mobile
As @closetnoc suggests, the problem with regards to textual content on mobile is not one of bandwidth but one of screen space - physically fitting that text on the screen (with other content) and not having an endless scroll. Just to get the KBs into perspective... a 500 word essay is only about 3KB uncompressed (1.6KB compressed). A single 100x75px highly compressed jpg thumbnail is going to be around 2KB. A single low-res 320px image is going to be about 10x that.

comment Best way (SEO-wise) to respect DRY in multi-page static website
From an SEO point of view the answer is very simple... use any server-side technology, the search engines won't know the difference. Don't generate content in the client - it will be an uphill SEO battle.

"So only they could return the 403 error, not me." - Yes, that's what I said. "You can .. prevent your site from being accessed this way". ie. othersite.com/~yourusername.

"you can't use regexes in robots.txt." - I wasn't. robots.txt is prefix matching. So Disallow: /~ will block all URLs that start /~ from being crawled.

comment Other websites' content accessible through own domain in shared hosting?
FWIW, I've noticed on other hosts where this happens, that the othersite is only accessible if you use your bare domain ie. mysite.com/~otheruser and not www.mysite.com/~otheruser (www being a CNAME in DNS). The point being, that if your canonical URL contains www then it is unlikely that the othersite could get indexed under yours. (Or/and use robots.txt as mentioned above.)

"Not sure if I can name them here" - go on, we need to know! :)

To help (short-term) fix this problem on your site (having other sites indexed under yours), you could perhaps block all /~ URLs in robots.txt.

comment Other websites' content accessible through own domain in shared hosting?
Not all sites will actually function correctly when accessed this way since client-side root-relative links will break. You can certainly prevent your site from being accessed this way by checking the Host: header in the request and sending a 403 if it's not what you expect.

mysite.com/~otheruser - Where "otheruser" is the username used on the other account, not the domain as could perhaps be inferred by ~othersite in your question? Unfortunately, on a shared server mysite.com is going to resolve to the shared server IP and this behaviour is not that uncommon - although I'm sure the host can block this in the server config and make sure it is only accessible by the IP?!

Dang, there seems to be a lot of the same questions in the last few days, both on here and SO!
