Requests to wp-login and xmlrpc are common attack vectors for WordPress. If you are seeing tons of requests to those files, many of them are ...

I looked up the IP 185.191.171.42, and it seems to be owned by SEMRush. So the possible reason is that you have second-hand domain that the old owner created those pages and SEMRush still has the list of those pages. So SEMRush is trying to crawl those pages, maybe to see the backlink or other parts of the pages for SEO analytic. To confirm that you may ...

You should reserve your h1 tag for the most important text on the page - usually the large text near the top that describes the topic of the page. If your entire website (and therefore your site nav) is about your podcast show, then your h1 may simply be something like "Episodes", with your title tag being "Episodes - Title Of Show". Edit:...

You still can do it via GA. But you would have to go through the custom reports route. Although, generic reports have the ability to do it too. Anyhow, it allows you setting regex-based filters. That is, if there is something indicating blog in the url. You would want to filter the landing page dimension and then drop your goal/conversion metric. No need to ...

See the SyntaxHighlighter Code Block documentation for more info: https://wordpress....

I think the question is similar to changing website's platform So if the structural, mark-up, meta, micro data and content remain the same, it doesn't affect SEO. For WordPress, the theme is one of the most important factors in SEO. You should use a theme that is SEO friendly which has good structural, meta, and micro data. And don't change the themes if ...

I think might be "hacked". xmlrpc is a common attacked used by hackers alike. I use Wordpress Expose from Chris G. Herbert to check if it can list username. I don't know the exact. But some people seems to be pointing to SEMRush which is an online digital marketing related. So they might still craw your website. Limit Login Attempts Reloaded might ...
