Rocket Loader does a bunch of things:
It ensures that all the scripts on your page will not block the content of your ...

RawGit is now sunsetting due to malicious usage, so they recommend to use one of the following services instead:
Rawgithub.com allows users to take the "Raw" versions of a Git and turn it into a URL usable in <script> tags. It's quite easy to use, simply remove the first . from ...
The problem you have is out of your control since this is how the hosting is setup at Github on the path that you have mentioned, Extension type is not only the factor when it comes to executing files since the web hosting can over-rule how a browser renders a file.
You could have a .zip file rendering as a .html file if the host was setup to do so, you can ...
Keep in mind that page download ...
I've never seen image lazy loading have any negative impact on web search rankings. Improving the perceived performance of your site for users can really help your rankings. When fewer people bounce back to the search results because of performance problems with your site, your rankings will improve.
Google will not be able to index lazy loaded images for ...
Whether you should care about this 1% depends on what website your building. If you're doing e-commerce and you have analyzed your audience a bit you can probably estimate if that ...
This is Google's official plugin for all the most common browsers, which will exclude you from Google Analytics:
Have all your team members install it.
PS: The issue with the IP-based filtering method is dynamic IP address allocation.
This will not hurt you. Having your site do different things depending on environmental factors (such as the type of device) is common and ok to do. You only have an issue when you intentionally serve different content to search engines than to users and that clearly is not the case here.
Can I just send pre-rendered HTML, using phantomjs or other headless
browser, to the google bot?
In short... no you shouldn't. Google's stance on differing versions for visitors and search bots is clear and regardless of your intentions it is classed as a cloak. Google also goes to great lengths to activity look for sites that specifically treat the ...
These reported errors don't seem to indicate actual problems than need to be addressed. Google's John Mueller posted this on Google+:

Yes. By the HTTP protocol, clause 7.2.1:
“Any HTTP/1.1 message containing an entity-body SHOULD include a Content-Type header field defining the media type of that body. If and only if the media type is not given by a Content-Type field, the recipient MAY attempt to guess the media type via inspection of its content and/or the name extension(s) of the URI ...
From Modernizr installation page:
Drop the script tags in the HEAD of your HTML. For best performance, you should have them follow after your stylesheet references. The reason we recommend placing Modernizr in the head is two-fold: the HTML5 Shiv (that enables HTML5 elements in IE) must execute before the BODY, and if you’re using any of the CSS classes ...
Google changes this around every now and then, and whenever they do I have to 're-find' where each of the settings are.
So you're not alone!
You're right that a browser key is essentially 'public' and should be limited by domain to protect it from being stolen. It's worth noting the worst that can happen if its stolen is that someone could use up your free ...
Java is a (semi-compiled) programming language which is largely cross platform but requires additional software to run.
The file extension is irrelevant, it's the Content-Type header that matters, and that file is served with a text/plain content type (which is the purpose of Github's "raw" view).
You should really download a copy of the file locally to your site and include it from there. Even if it did work from Github, since you're not loading the JS file asynchronously, ...
Use custom dimensions in Google Analytics.
First, navigate to the "admin" section of Google Analytics' web portal, click "Custom Definitions", then "Custom Dimensions" under the property you're selecting. Click "new custom dimension", give the dimension a name, and save it as type "hit".
Now add code similar to the following:
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Y', '...
I get a 403 error.
Likely answer: The site in question has protection against "leeching" / hotlinking. i.e. It checks to see what host is requesting the file before serving it. If the request comes from an unrecognised website, they throw a 403 Forbidden error.
If you take a look at ...
Never treat Googlebot any different than your real users
Google's bots that visit your site should be treated just as any other user and therefor attempting to hide content can actually harm your website. Google treats hiding of content as cloaking and is against their rules and if detected you can expect a heavy slap.
Many websites have popups on visit
Google will penalize a site for hiding keyword rich text that cannot be viewed by users. They call the practice cloaking: showing content to search engine ...
You can't hide h1 and h2 tags (or any text for that matter) and still have them apply positively to SEO.
Those are not links so they aren't counted as such. They're URLs of resources which are very different things. Hosting such a resource offers no direct SEO value but being known as a reliable host can encourage other sites to link to you as such.
you can leave the global site tag tracking code snippet on your site, just do not also configure tags for GA pageview tracking within GTM.
If it were me, I would remove the global site tag tracking code snippet and configure tags for GA tracking within the google tag manager container.
Bit of extra information:
Both Tag Manager and gtag.js perform ...
It's quite likely that the forum software they are using doesn't really support the mechanisms Google and others need to read the AJAX content - as it's not as simple as just "processing the HTML":
Making AJAX Applications Crawlable
So the idea would be, the site loads the static HTML that is refreshed with a particular frequency (daily/hourly/etc.) that ...
Download the site and recreate it locally, then use a CSS scanning tool such as Helium. It requires a line-separated list of URLs to parse.
