I'm probably being paranoid Maybe I'm being paranoid, but this sounds like it should be an entirely private blog/website. ie. password protected. Who exactly is the target audience? Apart from the security aspect (preventing the unscrupulous from finding and using the content), this sort of content sounds like it would be ripe for bullying from other ...

No amount of excuses can make stealing the content of others legal. While there is something as fair use, you cannot use an entire image or other media which is created by someone else and not licensed for your use.

Don’t use the metadata name generator. HTML5 defines that the value is for the software package (e.g., the CMS) used to generate the document, not for a person.

I don't think the modern search engines care about "older" phone compatibility. If the site is mobile-friendly in modern terms, the spiders will detect that and search engines that report it, will.

First this is really a WP question. I have wrote 20+ sites that do what you need so this is pretty easy. 1 You make everyone login to view every page. 2 You lock the uploads folder via script and .htaccess.

I would go also for one main URL. Why? Because in general, people don't search for a "green tee-shirt" on Google, they search a "tee-shirt" or a "Calvin Klein tee-shirt", whatever the colour; they only choose the colour when they see the tee-shirt on the website. I think that is the main reason why one main URL with a drop down list for the colour is the ...

Often you'll see a query string appended to the URL. So /product/1001/brand-shirt may be the canonical URL, but /product/1001/brand-shirt?colour=green may be used to link directly to that version. Then you can use the URL Parameters feature in Search Console as explained here. Alternatively some JavaScript-y bits may be used, like /product/1001/brand-shirt#...

How about this tag: <meta name="author" content="Developer Name"> In my opinion is better than the generator one, but it can conflict with the author of the data, not the webpage. Other method I use, is on the footer I add a little logo that links to my personal website. But of course you need permition from your client to do so, but if asked nicely,...

Google specifically allows you to run separate sites that geographically target each country. As such, it doesn't really matter if they are all using the same nameservers.
