comment Would a different IP address for each site in a network of sites help with SEO or prevent a penalty?
It's not really "trickery" if the link-wheel sites are generating useful content. If you sell widgets, and have a blog about the latest widget trends on a different domain, and it links to your store, that could be very beneficial to humans and bots alike if the widget blog is interesting. If it's the same boiler-plate keyword-rich crap being posted on 10 different domains, then ya, it'll look spammy.

comment Webmaster tools give 404 error on good crawlable pages
Generally yes, this is good advice. However, you should check the actually HTTP headers returned by the server to make sure they're actually "working" as intended. It's possible for the server to return the content the user was looking for while also returning a 404 status. So while everything will appear fine to humans, bots will think the pages are missing.

comment Google alternative to Schema.org’s LimitedAvailability
Ya, it's a sticky situation. The new spec says that "in stock" can be anything that will be delivered in a reasonable amount of time. That's pretty ambiguous, but we decided to InStock all our items that were not discontinued and available in at least one size/color variation.

comment Can I advertise in Google AdWords with multiple places to click in an ad with different actions?
The only Google ads I've ever seen with multiple click points are the Product ads that will show multiple products in one ad. And those are auto-populated by Google Remarketing.

comment Could too many backlinks from subdomains result in a search engine penalty?
Would also be helpful to know what "hit" means in some way. Maybe just for a certain word?

comment Prevent XML sitemaps from showing up in Google search results
Does the sitemap still exist? If not, does it show up as a 404 in GWT? I have this same problem with a few, but not all of my sites. I always just assumed there was some link out there to the ones that are indexed. Perhaps I was wrong.
