comment How can this be considered as web spam?
I think they could even extrapolate the context of the link, but it's much easier to spot when the keyword is not the company name. Sitelinks it's proof that they are pretty confident with that algorithm :) It's becoming so hard to cheat the big G nowadays

comment Page title for real estate website
I think there is no point for price up there (nobody really searches for "flat in hackney for 300000 pounds" on a search engine), although it should be prominent on the body of the page. The rest I think it's a very good page title.

comment Multiple links on a webpage pointing to the same URL
From my experience all links will get counted as one, but anchor variations might count.

comment Identical spam coming from many different (but similar) IP addresses
They probably are using proxies. And probably they can access many, and each proxy's IP can change too. I bet you know much of this stuff already, but blocking by IP is not really the best way (other than being not effective, you could -although unlikely - block some genuine user too). I had a similar problem, and I've just disabled links in the profile and added captcha to registration, but if it's manual spam is not gonna help much. I'd try to make it difficult for a bot, then probably if it's manual spam they'll get sick of manually posting stuff that's going to be deleted before G sees it.

comment Slower site with the *same* configuration than a mirror copy…?
+1, very nice answer. Only one thing: the amount of parallel requests depends on the browser. IE (up to a certain version that now I cant remember) will do 2, and if I am remembering well Chrome and Firefox 6-8 or so.

comment Apache, Rewrite Rule and Directories
No, I am saying I cannot redirect from a path that has the same name of a directory. No loops happens, I just see the content of the directory instead of seeing the correct file that apache should redirect to

comment Tuning WebServer Response -
I agree with the above. The problem might also come from poor configuration of MySQL. Assuming you are using MySQL (it would appear so from what you wrote), you could also try these tools: tools.percona.com . Worst case, if you still think it's a DB problem, you could get a consultancy from those guys which are great with MySQL. (somebodyelse already linked to their site in this thread). Good luck!

comment Redirection based on user's location
You should need to make sure that the users redirected to .fr domain they actually come from France... so I would say you'd need to implement a geolocation service.

comment My application's bounce rate jumped from 30% to 80% overnight
How about traffic, did it grow? If you increase traffic but not watching quality, this can happen. More users, but less % interested in your product. (just a guess as we dont have much information available)

comment Why am I getting domainpark.cgi being called from my website?
Text editors can usually search one file by one. Utilities like grep can search through the whole filesystem (assuming you have the right priviledges).
