comment For how long does the google bot wait after document ready before taking a snapshot of the webpage?
I've noticed that if you have JS timer events, the Google renderer appears to "bypass" the timer delay, executing the event immediately. eg. Timer event to generate page content set for 30 seconds - Google "Fetch and Render" returns immediately with rendered content (not AJAX).

comment Using .htaccess to set a cookie and 301 redirect
The first 3 paragraphs are irrelevant - the actual answer is in the last paragraph: "cookies are domain specific". What you are trying to do is set a cookie on one website from another - cross domain browser security - the browser won't allow this.

comment Efficient use of 301 for large redirect map
Yes, it is better to consolidate your directives into as few as possible (using regex patterns), however, it doesn't look like what you have is "written properly" (* isn't simply a "wildcard"). Can you paste the complete rule and the URLs you want to redirect from (that is supposedly covered by this directive).

comment Redirect https://example.com naked to https://www.example.com
I would have expected the above to have worked. What does "no success" mean? What actually happens?

@Steve Why do you want to do it with htaccess?

comment Why do search engines “lie”?
FWIW I see the same result for your first example. "Android" only appears in the menu - a link to another page - which does indeed seem irrelevant. However, if in-bound links to this page contain the keyword then that could also sway results. Sometimes there can be a mismatch with the search results (the page that is "cached") and the live page, if the page has recently change. However, that does not seem to be the case in this instance, although can explain instances when the "keyword" does not appear at all and it is not explicitly stated as "Missing".

comment Is it OK to give status 404 to unauthorized users?
Certainly a valid argument for a 404. However, I don't think it's necessarily always appropriate to send a 404 - it depends on the site. If you are serving a login prompt for unauthorised access then a 403/401 would be more appropriate.

comment Is it OK to give status 404 to unauthorized users?
"This is not the page you are looking for" - was this also accompanied by a 404 status?

comment Why can't I redirect www to non-www on my addon domain?
Just a note on the "Use a .htaccess in each add-on domain child directory" - you would also need to (at least) enable the rewrite engine (ie. RewriteEngine On) in the child directory's .htaccess file in order to prevent the parent mod_rewrite directives being "inherited".

comment Can it be a harm to Google SEO if I will insert <br> inside <h1>?
You're thinking too much. But "keyword1", "keyword2", "keyword3" - really?

comment Using my Home server Mail server and pointing DNS
How are you currently "pointing" your paid "mail" server to your home server? As you suggest, this is a "DNS" thing, so you don't necessarily need a "webhost". You need a domain registrar that provides a DNS service.

comment Subdomain htaccess rules
Also note that /error.php will refer to different files depending on whether you are accessing this via the subdomain or the subdirectory. If via the subdomain then you will need /account/error.php and consequently the subdirectory will see /error.php in the main domains root. But generally, you should not be accessing both the subdirectory and the subdirectory directly. If this is a problem then 301 the subdirectory to the subdomain.

comment Subdomain htaccess rules
Does /index.phpp externally redirect to /index.php? - Not sure why that would happen, unless there is something else going on?
