comment Did redirecting the root of the domain to a deep page hurt search engine rankings?
Google shouldn't particularly care about the redirection. It cares that there appears to be a massive change in the structure and content from what it previously saw as the landing page. So moving the home page up a level and removing the redirection would still have triggered a recalc. Would it have been this severe? Who knows?

So the top level of the site is not WordPress and /home/ is where WordPress lives?

comment Can product pages be created to rank in search engines for inventory from a local store?
Will each product be unique to a locale and store or will the same general product type be listed multiple times, one for each locale and store possible?

comment Content on one page vs multiple pages. How does this impact SEO?
@closetnoc You gave no offense and I took none. Trust me, EVERYONE will know when I'm offended by a comment, aka "my last day on Stack because I got hellbanned" :) No, I thought your comment was right on - we do have to be careful about using pagination because of the thin-content penalty - and I was simply answering your comment and clarifying my position.

comment Content on one page vs multiple pages. How does this impact SEO?
@Jordan It depends on what I'm reading. I don't always like to scroll for two miles, especially on a tablet and especially on something that I'm trying to learn. In those cases, I kind of like the subject-by-subject isolation that good pagination can impose as well as the bookmarking benefits for it. Other forms of content generate other responses. Long-form journalism works better for me as a single page so I can more quickly re-read sections as I go. YMMV.

comment Content on one page vs multiple pages. How does this impact SEO?
@closetnoc Yes, which is why "naturally" was emphasized above. If your content has natural breakpoints (e.g. chapters, topic changes) that lends itself to pagination, there's no harm in it. Unnatural pagination (50 words and a new page! No thanks) runs the risks you mention.

comment Does Google rate the webpage by amount of visits?
Couldn't CTR stand in for overall traffic in all of the above and still make your points valid (minus the "feedback loop" part, which isn't overly compelling)?

comment Does Google rate the webpage by amount of visits?
Assuming they do this, do you think it is a major indicator in the ranking algorithm or something so minor that it barely moves the needle? If major, how do you account for small sites outranking big ones?
