comment 301 Redirect are these URLs equivalent?
I think this URL has the answer: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/7539/… . I have mod_rewrite enabled. Any help with the regular expression is appreciated.

comment How can I choose between Linux and Windows hosting?
Adding to Melanie's comment, I've never heard exceptionally positive reviews about Godaddy hosting, but I'll leave it at that. They are cheap for domain names however. In the cheap hosting realm I have had good experience's with JustHost and Webhostingpad, but all of them have times in the day where pages almost fail to load.

comment ClickThrough on Google Webmaster Tool and Traffic Source in Google Analytics
It will help if you paste the google analytics code your using on the pages. That might lead to a clue. It's possible to have impressions without traffic from search engines, but I'm not sure the click through's part makes any sense.

comment iframe links to social sites?
Thanks John. I guess since everybody has those, the search engines probably almost disregard them. Never considered it that way, but it makes sense.

comment SEO: How to Separate Fact from Fiction?
@John - I like your last point about whether its to manipulate search or make the site better. Your overall view on this topic draws a distinction between safe website optimization and short-term traffic manipulation (which some people call SEO).

comment SEO: Similar, but not duplicate, content across several subdomains
@John - I agree that the concrete examples provided don't quite expand canonical to how I would like it to work, so it's left to speculation and testing. I'll modify my answer. I maintain that keeping overly similar content, even when from the same domain, puts you in dangerous territory, especially when massive search algorithm changes occur that are seemingly aimed at weeding out shallow content.

comment SEO: Similar, but not duplicate, content across several subdomains
@John - Would be good to get your feedback on this. I may be applying an overly elastic interpretation of their answer to: Is it okay if the canonical is not an exact duplicate of the content? at googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/02/… Thanks for your feedback!

comment SEO: Similar, but not duplicate, content across several subdomains
@John - I read something from one of google's engineers yesterday saying that canonical will address similar content if it's pretty close. If I can find the resource again, I'll post it.
