comment Why are the custom campaign parameters in Google Analytics so long?
Why does this matter? Is it actually preventing you from doing something?

comment Why does my sitemap have a “.gz” extension, and how can I edit it?
Voting to close. You need to read your plugin's documentation.

possible duplicate of What are the most important things I need to do to encourage Google Sitelinks?

comment How to map a blog to path
Is this question about the hosted wordpress .com service or what? Because you suddenly bring up self-hosting but then immediately drop it to ask again about it being impossible to host in a sub-directory.

comment Do we really need Google Analytics for better SERP positions?
-1 This is pretty much the opposite of an answer.

@Marcel Who said anything about "bloated?"

comment Why do all pages bar the home page turn up in Google?
Note that you site obviously is getting indexed. But to get more detail about the indexing, you should sign up for Webmaster Tools in the answer there, which also provides some further information. The homepage isn't being blocked for any obvious reason like a noindex meta robots tag, but it's also possible Google just finds it uninteresting at the moment.

comment Setting The Right Website MIME Type?
Are you sure you actually want to do this? Unless you know exactly what you're doing–in which case you'd probably already know how to take care of it–you're potentially opening yourself up to a lot of problems, only starting with browser compatibility. Then Javascript. Then well-formedness as an absolute requirement. And so on. Otherwise, as @DKOATED says.

comment What is the maximum size of an HTML file that Google will crawl through?
That documentation is for their search appliance. It doesn't necessarily tell us anything about Googlebot's behavior.

comment Image SEO with overlaid text?
I doubt it'll aid to put it in both places. (I actually intended that as an either/or situation; again, I don't know anything about your current implementation so had to cover several options.) But it probably won't matter if you do. Made a slight edit.

Ah, you're right. Sorry about that.

comment How to deactivate Piwik locally?
PHP knows plenty about the server providing the page with the Javascript in it. That was the point of the pseudo-code in the question.

comment What is the way to properly implement a Facebook Like button on a page for best SEO purposes?
@ElHaix This is pretty much the answer to the question you asked. (There is no "correct." You can point the button at whatever URL you want.) At no point did you bring up SEO. If that's your focus, maybe you should go back and edit your question to clarify what you're really after.

comment How reliable is the number of hits provided by Google site: command?
+1 The results of site: are explicitly not promised to be complete. (Read: It's not really a matter of "reliability" so much as that your expectations are wrong.) If you want to know how many pages are indexed for your site, that's what Webmaster Tools is for.

comment Why the sudden popularity of .io domains?
Actually, the .tv TLD is specifically being marketed(though not restricted) as such by VeriSign, who have a contract with Tuvalu. The country's so small they wouldn't derive much value from being strict about it anyway. They also did something similar with their phone area code.

comment Who is Automattic and why are they visiting my non-Wordpress site so often?
That is not scraping. Also, have you dug a user-agent or anything out of your logs? It might give some indication what exactly is behind the visits. (Bybe's answer is just speculative right now, though seems likely.)

comment we choose to use tables to layout web forms: (how) can we make them valid/accessible?
You say your forms are very complex. Your example is very simple. That makes it a bit hard to really consider your question.

comment Paginating sitemaps
What @Zistoloen said. There is no format. The engines/index don't care what you name the individual chunks, as long as they're listed in the index file.

comment Paginating sitemaps
Search engines don't look for a pagination parameter for sitemaps; they're not "pages" in the first place. Is there a reason your question seems to be based on an assumption of this?

comment Can I remove the footer copyright from a bought website theme?
-1 Irrelevant. The question regards whether you're allowed to remove the footer, not whether you think it's appropriate to. Even if the cars or gadgets you mention force you to sign some contract not to modify them, that says absolutely nothing about the agreement for the purchase of this WordPress theme.
