If you're not worried about external links, you could 410 the old pages Before I explain, what you've done seems perfectly fine to me. It can take time for 301s to kick in, you just have to be patient with it. Max gives good advice here, I agree with his answer. Personally, I would just wait for the 301s to do their job and not over complicate things. But... ...

Google has not stopped indexing new pages and I can prove it. This page with your question on it is now indexed. I can search for the title of this page in quotes and bring it up: There must be a reason specific to your site that Google isn't indexing your new pages. There are several such possible reasons. See Why aren't search engines indexing my ...

The length of time for Google to process a 301 redirect depends entirely on how often Google crawls those URLs, which in turn depends on many factors including ranking strength and how frequently Google sees the URL's content being updated. For URLs that Google crawls very very rarely, it could take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. You can check ...

.Et domain zone NS block Googlebot The problem is on the side of the .et name servers - they "block" Googlebot. This Google Support thread reports a problem with indexation with all domains in ".et" zone

When testing with Google Lighthouse, I receive a network error: ` "DevTools failed to load source map: Could not load content for https://page.et/wp-content/plugins/map-block-leaflet/lib/leaflet.markercluster.js.map: HTTP error: status code 404, net::ERR_HTTP_RESPONSE_CODE_FAILURE"` Additionally, under the Lighthouse Issues tab there's the ...

okay. Let's be technical. It's really good that you've checked the access log for google accessing your robots. That's important. Our first aim would be to force google to index robots. But before we do it, make sure you actually Allow that page in your robots. Just to override any conflicts there. Now see this? https://developers.google.com/search/docs/...

Check if you have { useHash: true } config in your Router configuration. If you do, just remove it, and that should solve the problem. Before: RouterModule.forRoot(routes, { useHash: true }); Now: RouterModule.forRoot(routes);

When sites and sitemaps are new, Google takes a bit of time to show a change in fetching status. Since that URL is perfectly accessible by Googlebot (returns 200 when changing the User Agent using Chrome Dev tools), I wouldn't worry about Google not being able to see the URLs in your sitemap. Give it a few days to see if that "fetching error" ...

Traced them to AVG! According to their Getting Started guide: The AVG Online Security browser extension displays information about the browsing quality of the websites you visit based on ratings from other users. Click the AVG Online Security icon to the right of your address bar to see one of three possible ratings: This website is safe: other users rated ...

As others have said, the best solution is to work on your overall load-speed instead of targeting locations to exclude. 5-8 seconds is a really slow load time but also remember that the "score" you are talking about is one ranking factor among hundreds of factors, factors like CTR and Session Duration have a much higher weight on your ranking than ...

This looks similar to the Avast Browser Extension, as mentioned on Sitepoint: Only people who have this extension will see these shields. If I recall, it's not difficult to accidentally install this extension when installing Avast Antivirus, and the Chrome store reports it has "10,000,000+ users". There are other extensions that do the same thing, ...

Stephen's answer is spot on to fix your current situation. But according to Google's guidelines, structured data written in JSON-LD should be placed in the <head> of the document. So at some point, I would recommend adjusting your workflow to use a plugin that allows you to inject JS in the <head> on a per-post basis. I would say "if it ain'...

No, you should fix your page speeds. Even 4.9 seconds to the USA is slow - you should be aiming for less then 2 seconds. Maybe start by looking at Google Lighthouse (built into Chrome) for what's making it slow and improve that. Google is not looking at the time it takes for others to load and render your pages, they are looking at the time it takes for ...

In all of my years I have never seen those shields before in the SERP's. I agree with Maximillian Laumeister that they are either a browser extension or some sort of security software on your computer. I tried to find the exact plugin or program that would display those and cant find anything in the Chrome or Firefox extension web stores.

I am almost certain that those shield icons are not a Google Search feature, as I have never seen or heard of them before and cannot find any mention of them on the internet. If my hunch is correct, the icons are being shown to you by an extension that is installed in your browser, likely an antivirus, firewall or other "security" extension. Check ...

WordPress uses the top of a post to generate a snippet for a post. When you put the schema markup at the top of the post, WordPress will include that schema any time that it links to that post along with the first few lines of the post. This means that your schema is going to appear on many pages on your site. For each post that has schema, you should use ...

You're all good, don't sweat this. Just refer to your brand name as you normally would on page and within your NAP info. That's where search engines are really going to look to understand who you are.

Unfortunately, no. That is not possible. I would very much like to provide a more detailed answer here, but it's really just that straight forward. We get 2 options: Why don't you just create an email folder and filter your emails from sc-noreply@google.com ? You could create just url-prefix properties for the domains you care about...but then you might ...

Here's your CLS I'm throttling with a 3g connection so you can clearly see it. That image is also contributing to your LCP. You need to serve a scaled image for mobile devices (don't use a plugin), and explicitly specify a height and width. I would also preload this image. It's already a WebP so you're doing that right. I recommend using WebPageTest ...

There is no need to tell Google that the two domains are the same in Search Console. If one of your domains redirects to the other, Google will figure out that the two domains are the same just by crawling them. When Google finds redirecting URLs it will choose not to index the redirecting URL and instead forward PageRank to the other domain, possibly ...

DNS verification does not allow you to use disavow tool for spamlinks. That's crucial reason to not prefer DNS verification.
