comment SEO implications of having multiple languages available at same URL
@nathangiesbrecht I think the information to answer you question is here. If you implement things Google considers and documents as non-optimal, whether you care or not, you should nevertheless do so knowing there's a possibility of harming your rankings. If your site has value you wish to preserve or enhance, test on a development site, not a public one.

comment 301 or 302 redirect for mobile/non-mobile pages
@bybe Your question presupposes that the OP isn't considering responsive. Read it. You also imply – falsely - that non-responsive approaches are invalid from an SEO standpoint. In any case, why presume to question somebody's chosen approach unless invited to do so? He may have very good reasons for not using responsive.

comment Is there any advantage/disadvantage to using robots.txt to disallow access to legal pages such as terms, privacy policy, etc.?
Bybe's wrong about robots.txt. It does prevent crawling, but doesn't prevent the blocked content being indexed (if the content in question is linked to).

You mean to just swap the image out, or dynamically changing image resolution based on device?

@merk No need to remove prev/next markup: you're placing too much value on GWT's HTML Improvements. Regards the "view all" and page size issues, have you read Google's documentation on this? They deal explicitly with that (and simultaneous use of canonical).

comment Should rel=canonical point to page one of a set and still have rel=prev/next on the page as well?
@merk Sorry, CLE = canonical link element. If no other duplication issues then no need for canonical element; just use the pagination markup. To some extent I agree about the titles and descriptions, although I'd argue there's some value to users in adding "page #" to title (not meta desc). Remember that GWT data is just a guide: simply having things listed under HTML Improvements doesn't mean those things are damaging site performance, it's just an indication of things that might be unless there are mitigating factors (like pagination).

comment Right canonical pages for encylopedia-style site
@DKOATED My point is simply that Google will prioritise the content identified as canonical in SERPs. As a result, logic based on user preference (i.e., what a visitor with specific interests should see) is anything but "nonsense", if we assume that several combinations and permutations of the same "building blocks" of content are functionally discrete. Hence my suggestion above that it's probably more of an architectural issue.
