comment Is it legal to link to a potentially copyrighted PDF file made available by the owner?
If you live in india, chances are you dont have to worry much about US copyright law. Specially if you are not profiting form the linking. You could just reach out to the site and ask if they mind getting links from you. Most sites dont mind getting inbound links. Now if by linking you mean "leeching the files, or embedding them on your site where the user doesn't visit the site who is actually hosting them" then chances are your site will get blocked and the site owner will smarten up and make sure hotlinking or embedding on his hosted files will not be allowed.

comment Asp.Net files appears as code rather than serving web pages
This is impossible to diagnose without actually looking at your url. Likely issue is that you are not on an IIS or Mono server which can serve ASP.net pages. If you are on IIS, then somewhere in the IIS pipeline ASP.net pages are either not installed or handler mappings for asp.net extension are not pointing properly to allow for the pages to run. Also another issue might be that your pages actually do not have an aspx extension and might have somthing like page.aspx.html but you have your system setup to hide file extensions. Give us the URL and we can help you further.

comment Reasonable lifetime for a page view cookie
Makes sense. I think if you have google analytics setup properly you will end up relying on the data stored there for most of your analytics. I would look into trying to make it work with Analytics by maybe setting a custom even for 'artice-read' and then firing it when the cookie does not exist. You should be able to drill down and see if the same session, or user is firing the event more than once. In any case. Glad you got it figured out, and hopefully your question will help others who are int he same situation.

If its about a post view, wouldnt a reasonable timeframe be how long it would take to read the post? I would say at most 1 hour?

Look at this StackOverflow Answer by David L. stackoverflow.com/questions/6827726/… Looks like the user who is viewing your site needs to have their language set to German for it to work.

To me it looks like you got it right, based on facebook localization docs. Do you have a meta tag which defines at UTF charset or language for the page?

comment Reasonable lifetime for a page view cookie
Just curious, are you setting a new cookie for each page? For example do I get a home cookie, and about-us cookie and a contact cookie if i view those pages? You want to limit the number of cookies you send, because they are heavy and can cause passing of too much data with your requests. My suggestion is to fallback on a google analtyics type solution storing pageviews in a db, and then setting the time between page views in your metrics. If you are using it for something else like, showing ads, or alerts, then I would assume a cookie lifetime of 24 hours seems right (personal opinion)

comment website clones SEO
Great Answer. Also hosting them with different servers, using separate google analytics code, and even going as far as renaming and chaning up the javascript and css files will confuse google enough where they might see the two sites as being seperate. All this sounds like a bad idea, because you are now working TWICE AS HARD to try and rank to seperate sites. Whereas if you could have them under one parent site, as seperate services you could probably have an easier job with SEO.

comment Google PageSpeed: Generating critical css for css file served from CDN
Im not a pagespeed expert, but the standard practice is to minify and combine your critical CSS files locally and then serve them from a CDN. So what mod pagespeed would do is take a bunch of css files, combine and minify them on your server. Then NginX or modPagespeed if it can, would rewrite the urls to your CDN. Lastly your cdn (if it supports pull zones, all except Azure CDN do) would fetch the file and store it on their cdn as needed.

comment Improve web site performance via parallel CSS downloads?
I saw something on etsy's code as craft site where they recommended just using a single cookieless domain for static objects (css, imgs, js). It turns out modern browsers do a great job with parallel downloads from a single domain. As for multiple files from same domain (10 css files vs 1 big one), I think you are better of combining and minifying one large file and just making it one request. Specially with CSS where your site is probably going to need all the css to look correct.
