To be clear. There is no standard for this but there is a typical limit.

comment Why would an IT department not allow a www prefix for domains?
@closetnoc I'm not saying to ignore it. I have a feeling we're disagreeing over something we both agree on but my/our wording is twisting us around.

comment Why would an IT department not allow a www prefix for domains?
@closetnoc I was just watching an old Matt Cutts video a couple of days ago where he talked about just such a thing. In fact, it was Google Webmaster Tools, years ago, that talked about letting them know which URL to prefer and just redirect one to the other for the very reason that it will otherwise split up traffic. Using www is old-fashioned. It almost always means nothing unless it's a real subdomain. It is an unnecessary thing to type, or should be. To continue to use it is silly. I was reading about the www taking up space in ads from ad agencies at least five years ago.

comment Getting root access in 1and1 hosting?
It's been a long time since I used shared hosting. Are you sure you can get root access on that? I never could on any host I ever used.

Doesn't Vulr have tech support AND a forum for these questions? Well, by golly, they have both! How 'bout that.

comment For webpages using jQuery, will the Googlebot index them on “page load” or after the “page ready” state?
@dhaupin That's not what I said but I'm bored with this thread so I'll leave you with your assumptions.

@dhaupin What would they do with the result of the rendering? What does something display outside the viewport have to do with search results? Other than an attempt to hide the element which will be detected just by reading the CSS and javascript. You don't need to generate the DOM, layout all the elements, download the images, generate animation, etc. to tell what code is trying to do. It takes time to render a web page that provides no value in any way, shape or form. You don't draw with pencil and paper a web page every time you read the markup, do you? But you can tell what markup doing.

@StephenOstermiller Incorrect. Javascript can be examined and executed without a web page at all.

@StephenOstermiller There's a difference between rendering content and reading javascript. Google will not run javascript animations, nor changes colors or move elements on a page just because it's in the code. It's not necessary for them to do so to understand what the javascript is doing. They don't need to wait for the page to render, as the question is asking about, because rendering the page completely is a waste of effort when all that's needed is the markup.

@w3d You just repeated what I said. The tool is for your use, not Google's.

Yes but that's for the developer, not for Google's sake. Search engines need not render content to understand it.

comment Order of HTML meta tags
Nice but you are responding to a four-year old thread when HTML5 did not exist, nor did much of what you wrote about apply back when the question was asked.

comment Do websites have to rank an “A” on GTMetrix?
I've run my own web dev business for 11 years and do very, very well, but this is the first time I've ever heard of GTMetrix so, yes, it appears that the people you know place too much emphasis on whatever that thing is.

comment Is it possible to make an XML sitemap pretty enough to show to users?
@w3d Well, there's XSL-FO and XPath, which I don't recall if it falls under the XSL banner, but both of those are needed by some to do further manipulation of documents that XSLT can't do on its own.
