comment What can I do in regards to the GPSI complaint on cache-control on dynamic images?
Is it practical for you to change the image URL when the image is updated? That way you can use long expiry times.

This is lossy compression, not lossless.

comment Apache returning incorrect bootstrap.min.css file
Try putting another file in the CSS folder and testing whether or not that works, that will help narrow down the problem.

How are you checking the host on the server?

comment When a mod_rewrite redirect is in place, do absent <img>s still cost more server time than present <img>s?
It's hard to talk SEO specifics without knowing what the content is. The images you're currently displaying are transparent PNGs, so they have no SEO value. It's the text that has value, and that can be there whether you're using an image tag or a div or span. Unless images are the primary 'content' on the page and you want them picked up on google images (e.g. a photo gallery), IMO there's no advantage of using img tags over CSS for the display.

comment Trailing slash on Root folder - Is it possible to remove it without 301?
I don't get any redirect from that URL, so perhaps there's something else going on. I'd suggest you see if you can get more info from the SEO tool about exactly what they think is happening.

comment Browser will not cancel the request if routed through PHP
'// discard $start_read_pos many bytes' is a bad idea, as PHP still has to read in the data. You should use fseek() instead. By I'd still go with X-Sendfile if you're able to get that working.

comment Can XML Sitemap include itself as one of the URLs?
I think 'sitemaps have no effect on search rankings' is a slightly clearer way of putting it, and I'd agree, but they're still worth having.

Does the PHP script include code to handle HTTP range headers?

Are you serving the video file itself through PHP, or just the page that contains it?

comment google excluding site for queries for it's exact name
Whilst this is good general advice, I think there is a specific problem here. It's not that the OP's site isn't ranking highly for the brand name, it's that it doesn't rank at all, despite Google apparently having indexed multiple pages with that name on.

comment Good, or Bad? 'www A Record (IPv4)' - “website has a CName Record.”
Well like I said in my answer, the A record will be a tiny bit faster in some circumstances, but the difference is probably not worth worrying about.

comment Good, or Bad? 'www A Record (IPv4)' - “website has a CName Record.”
I'm not sure if I understand the question. DNS records always resolve to an IP (even if a CNAME is used), that's their purpose.

comment Should I keep host name info for moderation purpose?
You don't need to find out who owns an IP to report abuse. You can easily find out which ISP an IP belongs to and report abuse to them.

comment Using ini_set() to change memory lmit for individual PHP scripts
The problem with setting a high limit in php.ini is that it hides memory usage problems that might develop in other scripts. If another script started using silly amounts of memory, the user wouldn't necessarily know this. By having a sane default in php.ini you can then increase it with ini_set() on a script-by-script basis only if you know there's no way to reduce the memory requirements.

comment How can you diagnose the cause of slowness for some users but not all?
It would help you narrow down which resource is causing the slowness (if it's just one), whether it's DNS/network related. Definitely worth a go.

comment page load wait time on my machine is 55ms but on test websites like pingdom.com it is 1.5 seconds, why would this happen?
Can you provide the URL so we can give it a try as well?

comment Will moving some ecommerce products from one domain to another with redirects cause SEO penalties?
I actually think this is a much simpler issue than the question it's been marked a duplicate of. You're permanently moving some pages to a different domain, so clearly a 301 for each is the correct approach.

comment Too many duplicate image alt attributes. What to do?
The images do have value in this case. The whole point of the table is to show 'yes' or 'no' values as part of a package comparison. With no images or alt text the content won't make any sense.
