comment Is linking to primary sources or secondary sources better for SEO?
@JakeGould By way of example, I was once quoted in this manner by USA TODAY. Unfortuntately they didn't do outbound links at that time, but I still picked up plenty of traffic just by having my blog named in the story.

@JakeGould If Jimbo is something your readers should also be reading, I am sure you can find a way to work him in to your story.

comment Do query string case differences affect whether a URL is Canonical?
I'm pretty sure that Google has got it right. I can't say anything for any other search engine.

comment Do query string case differences affect whether a URL is Canonical?
Percent encoding is case insensitive, i.e. %7e and %7E are equivalent. The preferred form is uppercase. All of the rules on what is or is not case-sensitive are in RFC 3986.

comment What is happening to my Google ads? They are askew!
#adunit does indeed contain a transform: rotate(1deg); which is being served from Google's googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads? (query string omitted as it doesn't fit in the comment). So Google is definitely doing it, at least to me.

@DisgruntledGoat This can be seen at myip.addr.space . I had no reason to hide it, except I did not want to appear overly promotional :)

comment Redirecting HTTPS to HTTP without relying on HTTPS variable
That was a bug, but it was not meant to "trick some web applications". Rather, those web applications were improperly coded themselves.

Actually, they do pay for their domain names every year.

comment How can I de-share third level .name domain which would allow me to register the second level domain?
If you successfully registered a third level name, then the second level was already reserved. You won't get it unreserved by cancelling your registration.

comment What are the best ways to increase a site's position in Google?
@JVerstry Oh yes it does. If you don't do it, you may get a Google smackdown for unnatural links from your site. Which will effectively bury your site in the SERPs.

comment Improving .htaccess 301 redirect for keeping SEO values on large WordPress blog
Not only will it not provide any SEO benefits, it will be slower to have 5,000 special cases ... or even 50!

comment Format of _escaped_fragment_ for complex states
You should reconsider your opinion very carefully before you call the above either "biased" or "uninformed". It is based on many more years of experience than you seem to think. And the intent is to help you.

comment Format of _escaped_fragment_ for complex states
Do you mean www.example.com/#!about? There's no need for escaped fragment in the URLs you posted. And this sort of single-page application design is very user-unfriendly anyway, so you may want to reconsider it.

comment Firefox accusing me of distributing malware on my site
@Andrew UPX is the packer most commonly used for packing malware, so if you also pack your downloads with UPX, you will set off alarms.

comment What is the best way to mirror customer's website on our domain from SEO point of view
Neither of these is a good idea, and will only make matters worse. Not only will you lose whatever ranking the sites already have, you will associate those sites with your domain, which will probably be perceived as fraudulent (unless you are also buying these hotels!)...
