Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

profile for w3d on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites


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 HTTPS and HTTP URLs point to different places?
"re-directed" - are you actually being redirected to an entirely different domain? Or are you simply getting browser warnings, as Digital Chris suggests?

comment Confused: When does Google use Title vs description? Misleading results possible
...and maybe from anchor text on links to that page? Maybe from older versions of that page? Regarding the "578 Things to Do" - that text doesn't appear in the page at all for me (not even in the title tag). Maybe different users (from different locations) are seeing different content - quite probable for a site like that. Yes, the "ebay bidding" link is perhaps misleading (I see that text only in the title tag). The page itself is littered with "free trial", so the word "free" is not entirely unrelated.

comment Is there any reason for putting humans.txt except of acknowledgement?
"confuses the reasons for robots.txt" - why?

comment Which fonts are the most common ones across different devices?
I think the OP is referring to which fonts are common (ie. installed by default) to all devices, without having to explicitly import/install them (eg. with Google Fonts). None of the fonts you mention are available on Windows by default.

comment Cannot edit .htaccess
Whether you are at home or at work (ie. a different IP) should not matter. The .htaccess file does not "execute" when accessing over FTP - if that is what you are implying.

comment What nameservers should I use for GitHub Pages when using a custom domain?
You can't set both the NAMESERVERS and the CNAME/A records at your domain registrar - the two are mutually exclusive. If you set the NAMESERVERS then you are instructing another server to handle your DNS, in which case any locally defined DNS records will be ignored.

comment How to verify app engine backend site using webmasters?
As far as GWT is concerned (whether this is different for app engine I don't know), the verification needs to be left in place as Google will periodically recheck this.

comment I have “CMS” made by myself with PHP and I cannot make my websites appear on google
Well, yes and no... Yes, setting these additional domains as "add-on" (or "parked") domains will potentially allow you to access your site via any of these domains. HOWEVER, if you have the same content accessible via different URLs (ie. different domains) then you potentially have "duplicate content" issues. Why do you have multiple domains? If this is an attempt at SEO, to boost your ranking, then think again. For SEO (and your users), you should probably be redirecting to a single domain, as you are doing already - but redirect to the one you want indexed.

comment How to verify app engine backend site using webmasters?
Ah, in that case I don't know whether it is possible to edit the DNS and add a TXT record - I would assume not. Maybe this question of StackOverflow can help: stackoverflow.com/questions/7030563/app-engine-webmaster-tools

comment How to verify app engine backend site using webmasters?
These 2 methods require the site to be directly accessible on your domain over HTTP (port 80) - is that the case? Have you tried adding a TXT record in the domains DNS zone?

comment Does amount of URL parameters affect SEO?
"the closer you are to the root domain ... the better" - In terms of URL path structure or number of clicks the user has to make?

comment What affect does having two URLs pointing to the same path have on SEO?
Presumably you only use one version in all your links etc.? And never refer to the other URL? In which case (IMO) the SEO effect will be negligible (if any). However, if you are using both URLs then see foamcow's answer.

This question is better suited to the webapps.stackexchange.com - However, you seem to have already answered your question. Rather than adding the answer to your question you should add it as an answer, and accept it, in order to help other users and take it out of the unanswered question queue.
