comment How to force Google to index images and webpages? Or I shouldn't bother and just wait a bit more?
You can submit pages individually using "Fetch as Google" from Webmaster tools. You can use this tool to fetch up to 500 URLs a week. Not sure if it works for image search.

And you may need to post a link to the page, in the comments, if you can. People will be able to help you better.

comment Internet Explorer 10 aborting some stylesheets
First, I would suggest you make sure it's not a server problem by serving the same page, with the same resources from another server with different technology. It could be a headers problem (Content-Security-Policy for example) or some other server-related issue.

Can you improve your question? It's hard to understand the current phrasing?

comment Facebook share does not display large thumbnail
You must use de debugger again to clean the cache. And even after that it may take two hours or more. Don't forget to check the new image has a diff filename.

comment File formats to download ringtones
"It can be downloaded to a desktop first, also if no converting is needed, users can download it directly to their phone." -- I sent links to colleagues that to some Android devices. Everybody could hear it but no one found instinctively how to do what I've asked them to do: add it as a ringtone.

comment Mediawiki much slower in Firefox
Thanks, I'll test. The difference between both browsers is quite large. And this is the default wikipedia skin! I think the problem may be on how browsers cache, directed by Apache. Can you help by looking at the http response headers. I've added them to the question.

I've added the http response headers. Please note that the main problem is the difference between cache clean page loading times with different browsers.

Thanks. The issue here is the huge difference between Firefox and Chrome (both after cleaning their caches), that does not happen in other Mediawiki sites with the same skin. I'm using the default skin, which is quite well optimized accordingly to Yslow. I've added http response headers.

comment Mediawiki much slower in Firefox
I've tested in different days both with a MacOS and a Windows Vista Machine. Yes DH it's a little slow when compared with other hosts, at least with my assigned machine, but that's not the problem I'm trying to solve at the moment. I suspect the current server configuration does not allow FF to do browser caching and all CSS/Js/images are loaded with every page. The installs are MW default installs, no tuning.

comment Best practise for meta tags in various languages
Meta keywords aren't used by Google any more and probably other big search engines don't use them either in any situation. So the answer depends on what search engines you are referring to :-)

comment Is traditional JavaScript image pre-loading taboo
I understood you wanted to preload images to be used in other pages/ajax calls, so loading them is faster. And in that case $(window).load is the right answer because you just want the browser to cache them.

comment How to deal with author rights when building a website
It depends on the country the company running the website is in and where the servers are. But a TOS always has to comply with the law...

Please avoid mixing 2 or more questions. Some people just want to answer to one and it makes it confusing to the readers. Besides how will you accept the best answer?
