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 Duplicate content after author leaves my site to self-host his blog
What is the problem as you see it? Are you wanting to keep this traffic? Or are you wanting to help the blog authors new site?

comment 301 redirect the home pages but keep sitemap pages same
Does the Redirect directive work to redirect both the non-www and www versions to the new domain? Generally, you should not mix both mod_alias (Redirect) and mod_rewrite (RewriteRule) directives since the order of execution is not obvious and you can end up with unexpected conflicts. However, that probably isn't the problem in this case.

comment 301 redirect the home pages but keep sitemap pages same
You also state that you've "manually redirected my entire site", but "the only page that's left is the homepage" - which you are now redirecting. How have you redirected your entire site, but avoided the homepage and sitemaps? Is it possible that this is conflicting as you state below that "it only redirects the example.com and not www.example.com"? The above directives should work to redirect the homepage only from both www.olddomain.com and olddomain.com - although it could probably be simplified (assuming you are already dealing with direct requests for the index document?).

comment 301 redirect the home pages but keep sitemap pages same
Can you clarify your old and new domains... you start of mentioning example.com and www.example.com (one domain, different subdomains) but then use olddomain.com and newdomain.com (two entirely different domains) in your code snippet? Presumably both domains are added to GWT?

comment Changing CSS styling for static HTML site with only FTP access
Presumably the link rel="stylesheet" element references something? But this does not relate to a file system path? The URL could be redirected or internally rewritten somewhere else, even above the webroot. It's also possible that the stylesheet is "generated" by a server-side script - but for an old static HTML site I find this highly unlikely.

comment Does a semicolon DNS record serve any purpose?
From the linked document, a semicolon would seem to be a comment marker?

comment How to find keywords in HTML code?
If you just need to determine the "topic" of the page then you might be able to get enough information from the title, h1, h2, etc. elements - providing the document is "well formed"? However, if you want to "check if a web page contains word" (as you state in the first part of your question) then I can see how you would do that without searching everything?

comment How to handle different images size and URL with SEO
Having each size of image indexed might not be a bad thing, particularly when users can search Google Images for particular sizes?

comment How to find keywords in HTML code?
Are these sites you control? Are you wanting to do this yourself - programmatically? Or use a third party tool? "where else I should search" - all page content. (?)

comment Does lazy loading work on externally hosted images?
There's no reason why (the concept of) "lazy loading" can't work with externally hosted images. From the client's perspective there's really no difference in where the image is hosted. However, there could be issues in the way images are pulled in from picasa/flickr and the order in which the page is generated? (Although I think "BJ Lazy Load" can handle this OK.)

comment Image not appearing when publicizing to facebook
@nabeelfarid: It probably does not matter how the link is being posted to Facebook. FB is probably scanning the source of the link for an og:image tag.

comment Image not appearing when publicizing to facebook
Since the other "open graph" data would seem to be populated correctly, I would assume there is a missing field somewhere... or maybe it's because the single img in that article is hosted on another host (ie. Flickr) and whatever plugin you are using to populate this data is unable to fetch it (a guess)?

Can you also include exactly what the answer was, rather than linking to an external resource? Thanks. Links can break, etc. etc.

comment Will previous 301 redirect still be cached if site switches to using SSL?
I don't think this would cause a "redirect loop"? (Have you experienced this and the browsers cache was the problem?) I would have thought this might result in two redirects - at worst - so I can't see this being a problem?

comment Google to index preferred sub-directory?
Where are you searching from? Is it possible you are seeing localised search results?
