comment Stopwords in URL for longtailed keywords
I'm not going to disagree (because I do agree with you), however, there are or have been some reasons to consider removing stop words or other unnecessary words from the URL. Note that I refer to the URL only, no where else should this be considered. The URL doesn't have any keyword ranking relevance like other on-page elements, and shorter URLs are (normally) better than verbose ones. So if your URL construct tends to be lengthy and a candidate for being truncated in search results, you can still get some highlighting and recognition benefit from removing cruft. Only if necessary.

comment “Read more” link bad or good for SEO?
-1. Question wasn't "for site visitors", the question was "for SEO" (but I up-voted your comment that it won'e have a "negative" impact.

comment How do I expire by type in .htaccess for remote loaded Google fonts?
There's specific reasons for them not to set long cache times the analytic requests (otherwise they won't record visit data) - i'm not sure why they have short expiry set on fonts though.

comment Incorrect rel-alternate-hreflang implementation
@GauravDadhania for your additional questions: #3 - you should have distinct/separate XML sitemaps for Desktop/Smart-Phone/Feature-Phone URLs (if they differ, and depending on your implementation). #4 - It would be smarter to group those bi-directional references, but I've never tested them separated to see if that's an impact. Mobile URLs shouldn't really need their own hreflang if you're correctly managing redirection for mobile user-agents (see similar question on Google here: productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/webmasters/_UwZqAVpXEs

comment Is changing HTML with JavaScript bad for SEO?
Be careful alienating accessibility-impaired users with your approach (this can be illegal in some regions). People browse the web without JavaScript for many reasons (including ad/script blocking, accessibility, web-crawlers etc. Even Google has a "Basic HTML" view option for Gmail...
