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?

Theft and lose are in quotes above to indicate that not everyone will agree with the terminology and really those words were chosen to get the point across.

You can use them in conjunction, the warning from BruteProtect means that if you are using WordFence to block brute force logins, BP's database of attacking IPs isn't getting updated. So you can either disable WF's brute force protection and let BP handle that or just do nothing and rely on other users to submit updated attacking data to BP. Personally, I use WF to monitor for file changes and leave all brute force monitoring/prevention to BP so they get the data they need. But there's nothing wrong with doing it the other way.

@Wold Yes, absolutely. You need to give them SFTP or Shell access and they go through and fix things. Their monitoring service tests the public-facing site to see if it has been hacked to present malware or defaced. Optionally, you can also provide server access and their tools will scan for core file changes and alert you when something gets altered that shouldn't be.

That's not been my experience. I have a dedicated server with DH and I've always had above-average response and assistance when I've contacted them.

Rolling your own theme is usually pretty secure (unless you do something you shouldn't) because you are doing less than what off-the-shelf themes are doing. When you roll your own, you tend to only include as much functionality as you need to get the job done. An off-the-shelf theme has to bundle more features in order to be a one-size-fits-all solution and that can be where the problems start.
