comment Is it possible to blur the content under my navigation bar?
You cant do this with CSS3 blur because it will not affect the div scrolling below. The only possible way right now is with Javascript + Canvas, where you take canvas snapshots on scroll, and then blur them using either canvas or CSS3. I have seen this done a few times and each time it is a total memory hog. Your best bet is just to use transparent glass color and forget about the blur. Apple does this on their new homepage and it looks very nice. The only time I would recommend using the canvas technique is if the image is generated only once, scrolling would create tons of images.

comment Force SSL using 301 Redirect on IIS7 gets 401.1 Error
You could probably easily fix this with a rewrite rule to redirect error pages to https. I think that is what you are trying to accomplish?

comment How to handle non-existent subdirectories?
apache proxy pass will also proxy pass the headers. So you want to use PHP logic to return the 404 header and you should be set.

comment Google Analytics on site with multiple iframes
You would either have to write some javascript on the innerframe not to run the "trackpageview" if your conditions are met, or better use something like querystrings on the iframes when the tracking is required and then use something like php, asp, to run the iframes.

Cant you do them on a review scale of 2 where 1 = thumbs down and two equals thumbs up?

comment Google+ brand display in SERPs
You should probably still try and include the schema.org brand snippet, because other search engines are more likely to grab it from that versus getting it from Google+. Having both probably will not hurt.

comment Effect on SEO when placing social icons on the footer
100% correct, they have zero value. I would make each link a nofollow (so you dont waste any link juice) and also like to set their targets to open in new window (or tab) so that your users are not going to leave your site and get distracted on a social networking site. In my view, you use social networking to drive traffic to your site, not away from it, and while having these links builds credibility they seem to me as a reminder to your visitor to visit a 3rd party social site and goof off. If you can avoid having the social links, thats what I would do.

comment Why Google analytics shows self referral
technically subdomains are different domains (at least how google sees them). You can either setup adwords rules to strip out this traffic (from your own subdomains) or need to tag your outbound links, or add some javascript to override the referrer in tracking to null.

comment Adwords: Conversion and re-marketing Code
Were you using conversion tracking pixel from adwords which is created in adwords (should see it under your goals section) or were you using conversion code in google analytics, and then some specific adwords targeting for conversions?

comment Opinions and guidance on a specific Lazy Loading strategy and its SEO
Its mainly by watching the websmater tutorials from google (matt cutts) and experience. If you put up an ajax site, usually the html version of the site gets indexed quickly, and after a few days - weeks the ajax stuff starts popping up.

comment Rich Snippets Review Rating on Homepage
The only time I have had the review snipped show up on my sites is when we have had them on product pages. I think turstpilot and services like theirs are more for GoogleAdwords and GoogleShopping ratings then the schema type ratings you see. As for the schema tags, you can make up whatever you want and show a 5 star review on all of your products. I think google has become very picky on when they show the XXXXX star ratings. Again, they never show up for us unless if we have them for tons of products.

comment Is this way of using Pushstate SEO friendly?
Pushstate or Hasbang are both the same. It has nothing to do with caching, they are just different URL routing schemes. With Hashang you use javascript to update the url, and with pushstate you use HTML5 history to change or update the url. As for Ajax being cached, that will happen regardless based on cache headers you set. So if an ajax response is set to cache in the browser for 1 hour, it will cache 1 hour regardless of it its request is via hashbang url or from a pushstate url. New Tab, the request cycle starts again, and then the requests are aborted if an item is cached.

comment Opinions and guidance on a specific Lazy Loading strategy and its SEO
Google bot will grab both. It will usually just crawl the static site, but after a while it starts to run a full browser (with javascript) and acts a lot more like a typical browser. So in essence, you cant get away with cloaking, but not if the content is different. Your best bet if you are using heavy ajax to load content is to build your site for users first, googlebot next, as googlebot is getting smarter by the year.

comment Should I map third party blog as a subdomain?
We use a custom build of NginX with a few extras like subs filter. We also have blogger setup as a custom subdomain blog.oursite.com. Also note in blogger you want to add a bit of javascript to catch the url and redirect it to your main site. We use blogger (although wordpress is much nicer) because we dont like the hassle of having wordpress installed, and plus we like being able to take advantage of Bloggers great Google+ intergration.
