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&...

It is not a good idea to let Googlebot crawl URLs that can be constructed with combinations of parameters. When you allow your categories to be filtered, my advice is to only allow Googlebot to crawl pages with a single filter applied, even if you allow users to view multiple filters at the same time. To implement this, you need to change your URLs: /...

Have you looked at limiting Google's bot threshold? Per Google, If Google is making too many requests per second to your site and slowing down your server, you can limit how fast Google crawls your site. The one caveat is you cannot limit to a specific folder/directory. Per Google: You cannot change the crawl rate for sites that are not at the ...

You can set the lang attribute in your <html> tag if you want to. The w3c recommends setting it. If you do set it, you the value should just be en, not en_US. It is a language identifier, not a locale identifier. It should only specify the language, and not the language and country. However, setting the lang doesn't actually do anything. That ...

Using microdata does not improve rankings. You can't verify that it will help your rankings, because it won't. At best, using structured data gives you rich snippets in the Google search results. Getting rich snippets may improve your click through rate and make your site appear more attractive. This may indirectly increase your rankings as Google may ...

Firstly, make sure you even need an <a> tag. If the link doesn't navigate to another page then you should be using a <button> tag. Yes, you can use the aria-label as you have described and you can also use the normal <a href="#" **title=""**> title tag instead, as all screen readers use that in the absence of an aria-label tag. However, ...

Whether or not you use the "subpage" feature in WordPress should have little impact on SEO. When you use that feature WordPress does two things: The URL of the subpage starts with the URL of the parent page. The subpage contains a link to the parent page. URLs URLs don't really matter for Google SEO right now. Google doesn't put much (if any) weight on ...

is it better to save the image file under different filenames no, redundancy is never good. Beside of file name there is hash value, allowing to identify an image. An the hash will be always the same, independently of path and file name. So it will be a kind of duplicated contet, which is just a bit harder to recognize. Don't expect any additional ...

I've just realized that all linked pages expect a cookie (created on homepage) to render properly. Googlebot doesn't accept cookies, so that breaks the whole thing. Currently working on a fix.

What plugins are you using? Some plugins like Yoast will automatically use the Article schema for any blog post. I'm guessing that you probably have another plugin that is also adding schema objects to your content. Try disabling all of your other WordPress plugins and rerun Google's Schema tester. Then add the plugins back in one at a time, and re run ...

Have you looked at the Status column? It should show "Success" if Google reads it correctly as well as the last date Google read your sitemap. Just as an FYI, there's lots of comments here regarding the Sitemap Paradox. It might be beneficial for you to read through that discussion.

It is very common practice to choose a preferred URL for each page and to redirect to the preferred form. The practice is known as "URL canonoicalization". This is good practice because: The redirects help SEO. It makes the site more consistent and more crawlable. It consolidates link juice value for a page to a single URL. The redirects make ...

You might want to look at the Internet Archive, also known as the "way back machine". You can find it at https://archive.org/web/. It's not Bing specific, but it does grab snapshots of websites and archive them over time. You can use it to compare two different snapshot dates and then you'll have an idea of the date range changes occurred in.

Okay, here's my experience, though not scientific. I don't have a site that has Expertise, Authority or Trust as it relates to the medical field, so I have no E.A.T. credibility as it relates to the current pandemic. I wrote a blog post relating the virus to my industry. Nothing serious, more of a humorous story about the lengths some people are going ...

E.A.T. is going to be the most important factor in COVID-related content. If you're not a research institution or an established medical journal or top news provider, you're going to have a much harder time ranking. (Which, sorry, is a good thing). For content categorized as news, recency is a ranking factor. "Urgency" is not.

Yes, search engines read it as "Hello World". No, this won't harm your SEO efforts. <span> has no semantic meaning it clearly won't change the weight of the word to the search engines. No recommendation should be needed because there should be no difference. The <span> element has no semantic meaning whatsoever.

The reason for two or more name servers is for fault tolerance/redundancy. I've always seen at least two, one primary and a secondary name server, with possible replication to other name servers. I'm not sure, but the RFC may require a minimum of two as well. That being said, I've never heard of the quantity of DNS servers impacting SEO. The numerous ...

I assume that you are using Wordpress platform for developing. For Wordpress, you may simply install plugins such as Yoast or All in one SEO to input your page title. Moreover, the UI interface can be designed in a different way (like you said, not displaying the title) by using others page builder or Elementor plugins. However it is not a good practice for ...

I don't see this is affect to your SEO. It just treated it as a new page of yours. However, I think your user will be confused as your link was quite same to another. As long as you said, content, meta, title etc are the same, it is ok for SEO. Hope it helps!

Generally speaking, longer pages tend to perform better. This is likely because Google is increasingly using semantic analysis on the pages and a longer page is statistically more likely to contain the semantic phrases which Google considers relevant to the topic and to search intent. A common practice however -- whether you subscribe to this SEO theory or ...

It can be fine for SEO to redirect the base URL of the domain to a language based on the Accept-Language header. The only SEO concerns are: Test your rules for case in which the language header doesn't list one of the languages you support. Test your rules for no Accept-Language header sent at all. (Most bots won't send one). You need a fall-back page ...

Search is not about keywords. It is about whole language. There are several factors at play when someone searches for your site besides the content. For now, I will stick to your question directly. Search is about linguistic semantics. In your case, handmade or custom would be a modifier of curtains. The term curtains would be the most important term with ...

I think you're worrying about keywords too much. Google tries to answer the user's question, not necessarily exact word matches. Of course having the keywords in your content helps, but Google is way more sophisticated and will look at all of the page and site content to understand if it thinks a site or page will answer the user's question. Write good ...
