If you can remove the empty H1 is better, but nothing to worry as google pick the overall intent of the content.

Google will typically ignore empty header tags. Google has also confirmed or has been cited as saying that using multiple header tags or H1s is completely fine and will not impact, help or hurt, how you rank. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-h1-headings-seo/328459/#close

As long as one tag is empty you will only have one h1 tag and this is fine. 2 h1 tags will only confuse the search engines. But the title is the title and h1 is h1. So don't use h1 as page title, for title use title tag.

Old question but must be answered completely. It's very disappointing that it has not been answered in almost a year! Those images come from either your: Twitter card image or Facebook opengraph image I am not 100% from which one, but I am 100% it is from one of the two, or at least the first image that Google finds while reading your page. So keep this in ...

Doing a site:salon-live.website search shows that what Google has currently indexed is sub optimal. Like the title is "React App". You're latest version of the page is a little better. I'd do a Url Inspection in the Google Search Console and then a Request Indexing. Hopefully that would speed up re-indexing so that Google sees your new title. meta ...

It depends on your call to action/moneymaker. Sometimes people have mostly mobile traffic, but eventually those mobile users complete an important form from their desktop (cross device), making that desktop traffic small but important. But if no desktop traffic is very important and causes you headaches to maintain that site, it makes sense to ditch it.

Technology changes fast and I am not saying that desktops will be the thing of the future but don't forget tablets and don't forget other devices which could use slightly bigger resolutions. If time permits then instead of spending time in managing 2 versions I would say code out a responsive design of the same site. It can be done easily with media queries ...

What you are describing is what Google calls doorway pages. Having doorway pages can get your entire site (including your original domain) penalized and removed from the search results. Google doesn't like it when you copy pages, change a few keywords (like the location), and try to rank for all of them. Using multiple domains is not a good ranking ...

Images can rank in search engines, but it is easier to rank paragraphs of text. There are several reasons: Search engines ignore pages that don't have much content on them. Search engine bots can identify text as content reliably. Images are much harder for them to interpret. It is much harder for a bot to know how much content is in an image. It is ...

If you are fully deleting your site, it can be a one step process: Delete all files and the domain from the server. Googlebot and Bingbot will the pages from the search index the next time they crawl them and get an error. It could take a couple weeks for all the pages of your site to be removed from search engines, but it will happen. If you want to ...

Yes, the three step plan you outlined would be the best way to completely remove a site from Google's index. Set all pages to contain a noindex tag either via the meta robots tag or the HTTP response header. However, keep in mind that this process may take a while depending on how large your website is and how often and deep google crawls your site. So if ...

Just a little update here, because Google has changed their policy and in consequence only https page will be taking into account.

The answer depends. Is it a good idea? well that depends on the percentage of your users that are mobile. If a 100% of your website users are on mobile devices, then yes, forbidding your desktop site is probably not going to make much of a difference. It terms of SEO rankings. Google primarily crawls with a mobile user-agent/bot, so having a purely mobile ...

This is a very common misconception actually. The indexing API only works for job postings or livestream videos. "Currently, the Indexing API can only be used to crawl pages with either JobPosting or BroadcastEvent embedded in a VideoObject. For websites with many short-lived pages like job postings or livestream videos, the Indexing API keeps content ...

Its absolutely fine to markup multiple products on a single page. Use Google's Structured Data Testing Tool to see if your schema markup validates.

I would say it's definitely worth it to update all the backlinks that you control. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to get links updated that are out of your control, though. While redirects will handle users who still end up on the old URLs, they add another DNS+HTTP round-trip, making the link load slightly slower. But a bigger reason is to signal ...
