comment Make my logo with white text show up better on Facebook and Google+ since they have white backgrounds
How do you mean "if you don't have another image on the page it wouldn't work"?

comment How far does Google go to check duplicate content
The "substantive blocks of content" part is open to interpretation though. The name and address of a doctor can hardly be called a "substansive block of content". Either way, using canonical URLs is a good idea for lists like this.

comment Weird forum posts by new users
How long has it been since you changed the challenge? My forum had a decent challenge too, but once it was cracked, the bots started flooding in. Changing it stopped them for a few months. As for the reason why, no idea. Most bots I see post links to random viagra/drugs stores. Without posting any links, they don't seem to be gaining anything from the spam.

comment Why does Google give different results based on country code for same set of keywords?
Is your site in French, or do you have seperate pages for people from Luxembourg? If you have seperate pages, you could use the hreflang tag.

comment How to handle URL parameter for mobile site
I forgot all about rel canonical... I still see a few "?mobile=mobile" links on Google, but I have canonical links in place, so it shouldn't be causing any duplication problems. Thanks a lot. The basic setup is responsive and uses the same URLs for both mobile and desktop, but the problem was switching between the two manually. The code for that isn't optimal, but if it won't cause any problems, it's not too high on my priority list to fix. It's a hobby site so I'm just glad it's not causing duplication issues.

comment How to handle URL parameter for mobile site
I didn't write it myself, and I would rather fix it through GWT or robots.txt or the like than trying to figure out how it works exactly. I barely know php too.

comment How can I fix Google indexing URLs that are not part of my sitemap?
I've seen a few discussions about it and I think it hasn't worked (properly) for a while now. I've never used it myself though, so I can't say for sure.

The link:-syntax doesn't work anymore as far as I can see.

comment Is there a way to hide from Alexa?
Alexa ranks pages based on number of hits from people that have their toolbar installed. As far as I know, you can't block toolbars. The SO question you linked will only stop Alexa bots, but pretty sure those bots don't count as traffic. How exactly does your competitor know what you're doing through Alexa? Maybe the problem can be solved some other way?

comment Linking to my website from my clients sites
"It is bad in context of Goolge's fighting with spam through "Penguin". This "Penguin" punishs for "site-wide" links. My piece of advice for you is to use rel="nofollow". It will prevent you from any filter actions but leave your link available for users."

comment Do URL sortneres make an impact on search engine rankings?
No it won't, since that URL 301 redirects to your site.

comment How can I make these Google Analytics numbers add up? (Frequency & Recency)
I thought about that too, but then the numbers of pageviews don't make sense. And also, it doesn't add up for the numbers above that line...

support.bigcommerce.com/questions/1630/… is an interesting read. It's a page specifically on how to optimize your store for SEO.
