Styling any tag in an attempt to manipulate SEO performance is a bad thing. Styling any tag so it looks nice on your page is not a bad thing. Basically, the rule is - if you are putting keywords in <strong> or <h1> (or even <abbr>) tags and then reducing the visual emphasis of these through CSS, and then using other words in whatever takes ...

If you are not using Joomla at all, my suggested step is to make a complete backup of the joomla site, then delete it and replace it with your files. If you aren't using Joomla any more then you don't need any of the Joomla core files. Watch out that you don't delete images or other assets that you may have uploaded and need in the new site.

Typically when replacing a Joomla website, I move all the files and folders in the root folder (e.g. /public_html) into a sub folder such as /public_html/old which I retain for a few weeks in case I need to retrieve anything I have forgotten about or need to compare the new website to the old website. If it exists, you should probably leave the /.well-known ...

You create a single file with all the CSS. You create a single file containing the contents of all the JavaScript. You remove the links to all the css and JS from your pages and replace it with: <script src="/js/combined.js"></script> <link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/combined.css"> You should run your combined js and css through a ...

No - using CSS will not hurt your SEO. IF you do not use it heavily to fool search engines.

You cannot change the headers for requests you're not responding to. In this case, the browser will make a request to Google asking for fonts. The browser will receive a response from Google(not you) with headers(cache, encoding, etc) and body(actual resource). Don't forget these tools point you in the right direction but are not always aware of the whole ...

Definitely a css thing. One solution is to use a css @media (min-width: XXXpx) query to disable wrapping if the screen width is small (e.g. set float: none on your figure element containing the image).

Set the first value (the variable) to Click Element rather than Click Classes. I'm not sure why they designed it like that. It seems pretty unintuitive.

There is a concept called RESS, originated in 2011 by Luke Wroblewski (who came up with the Mobile First design approach) which stands for: REsponsive design + Server Side components The idea above is to use a server side technology (eg. PHP) to detect a mobile browser agent and then serve the mobile version of the page's markup instead of the desktop ...

This might not be a real answer, just an opinion. Every web developer should decide if they "need" a feature. In my opinion, the unit itself is a bad implementation. DPI is a unit intended for print, specifically a unit to measure the capability of a printer to produce a small dot. But in electronic mediums we have not a dot, we have a pixel, which has ...

Based on the link you provide. Are you being deceptive? Meaning are you hiding the parent element in order to achieve keyword stuffing of some sort? This is really bad and I would't do it. You aren't being deceptive but again some text (that might contain keywords) is being hidden along with the parent element? This is bad and I would't risk it. Do you ...

Googlebot will see the lazy loaded content after it has been loaded onto the correct page. The page will be taken as a whole once any lazy loaded content or dynamic content has been loaded as Google will evaluate the page as the end user would see it. All that having the exclusion in your robots.txt file will do is prevent Google from listing the endpoint ...

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.example.com/amazon/styles-site.css" type="text/css" /> The problem will be that you are linking to an HTTP (non-encrypted) resource from an HTTPS (encrypted) page. When viewing the HTTPS page (possibly after an initial redirect) then the browser will block any requests for HTTP ...

You should show Google what an end-user would see. Check the Google Webmaster Guidelines Basic principles Make pages primarily for users, not for search engines. Don't deceive your users. Avoid tricks intended to improve search engine rankings. A good rule of thumb is whether you'd feel comfortable explaining what you've done to a website ...

Will Google render that page and treat the h2 as the true h1 for the page? Both, Yes and No. Google fetches the HTML of your page and then analyzes it in different ways. Google examines one or more pages to extract the content of the page separate from the headers, sidebars, footers, etc. Once Google has the content, it breaks it down to a DOM (document ...

AFAIK, Google relies on H1, H2, etc only, and not on how these styles look like. Your H1 will be the main title for Google, not your H2.

Google reads CSS so in short. Yes. The overall page will be rendered by Google and used to determine if mobile friendly etc. If you aren't serving media queries in your CSS that will be a problem. Theres lots of best practice reading around that. E.g this page exists for a reason. https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly It's also likely that ...

Heading elements are for identifying headings and not for identifying placement within a list. If a list item has a heading, it can have a <h1> for each list item which will then identify it properly as the head of a sectioned content. So: <ul> <li> <h1>Heading</h1> </li> <li> <h1>Heading</h1&...

Schemas are good for SEO so where you can use them it is a good idea. As for what schema to use, I would use Steps As for the rest if the markup, do they need to be in <h2></h2> or <h3></h3> headers? Why not use CSS? For example html <span class='h3-font-size'>1. First Item/Step</span> blah, blah, blah <span class=...

I recommend Visual Studio Code (VSCode) with the Live Server extension. It works best with Google Chrome. VSCode is a free download from Microsoft. Since you're working with CSS, I would also recommend the IntelliSense for CSS class names in HTML extension. You could also try something like codepen.io or codesandbox.io. They both allow you to edit HTML &...

Auto ads are designed to ignore all your CSS and insert the ads in a consistent way across different sites. There is no way to control the position or margins of auto ads. If you want more control of your ads, then you should disable auto ads and use traditional ad placements. See Ad placement and how to create it - AdSense Help for instructions on how to ...

several folder/files that belong to Joomla Do you mean only core files? Or files, which are important fo ruser, like images or pdf? If you mean only Joomla core or extension files - they may be deleted. But if there are images or documents, which could be important for visitors - try to redirect them, or you will experience a kind of downgrade after switch....

I don't think there is a widely adopted term for it in UX. On the development side some libraries refer to that effect as sticking (making that title sticky for a while) some as pinning. But you seem to be really more focused on just trying to find a way of replicating it. I recommend you look into transition libraries for single page websites or even fixed ...

I know it's an old question, but it's the first one in the Google search results. I've been searching for a solution and after some weeks of unsuccessfull testing, I could find the solution. Add this code in your .htaccess: # Allow access from all domains for web fonts <IfModule mod_headers.c> <FilesMatch "\.(eot|font.css|otf|ttc|ttf|woff|woff2)$"...

Although, not a primary ranking factor, we would recommend that you clean them up so there are no 404s or missing pages. If an auditing software can detect these errors, then you can bet that Google can, too.

I know this is old, but you've also put "scr" instead of "src" in front of the link.

It's the browser cache that does this. For chrome go to the three dots on the right corner and click 'more tools'. Then select 'clear browsing data ' and make sure cache is enabled. When you did this close chrome and reopen the site.
