Optimize so that it can appear in searches with key words. Besides appearing in Youtube searches, appear in Google searches too with the key words. Besides this, you can run paid ads in Google, social media like Facebook...
In 1 news sitemap you can use all 1000 URLs, no need of multiple sitemaps for this large number of URLs. In robots.txt file you just need to allow the news bot to crawl. Please check the URL provided for more details.
It's generally better to handle 404 pages with a custom "profile deleted" page, rather than leaving them as a 404 error. This provides a better user experience and signals to search engines that the content is intentionally removed, rather than just being unavailable. Additionally, it may prevent potential drop in rankings or negative impact on crawlability due to the accumulation of 404 errors.
Google is going to launch it's AI based application Bard in few weeks. Currently it is in testing phase. At first, it will be integrated with the Google Search for public. Let's hope for a better search results with Bart. More information,
Article schema covers news articles too but if you are defining your article as news then NewsArticle schema should be used. For more,
I have created publisher center account. account is verified and I can see my articles in dashboard also. But I am trying to get listed in Google News and non of my article is coming in Google News. What should I do to get in Google News?
Please share valuable feedback on this.
- The blog section can be used on the domain itself. There is no need to move it on a subdomain as in current case. You should consider it so that URLs shouldn't change.
- Hope all old URLs have been redirected permanently to the respective new URLs
- Hope The Google Search Console is not showing errors to be fixed.
You can turn it into an opportunity by diverting Binance audience to your website back by using hyperlinks. You can declare the Binanace URLs as canonical of your original pages to take leverage of SEO.
Thanks for sharing this, I totally forgot.
Came across this yesterday evening and there are some interesting ones.
Full list available here:
Interesting for a better understanding of search engines,
Thanks for sharing these!
SEO activities can be done at any time of day and the effects will generally be the same regardless of when these activities are performed, as long as the activities are done properly. However, if you are targeting a USA audience, it is important to take into consideration the fact that the majority of internet activity in the US occurs during the day. Therefore, you may have more success if you focus your SEO activities during the US day time hours, as opposed to the night.
Yes, they have stated that something similar will be incorporated in GA4 in coming weeks.
The most popular A/B testing feature will not be provided after the Google Optimize Sunset date. Though Google is giving a ray of hope that it will bring back it somehow in coming weeks. Let's see.
What might have compelled Google to close such a useful tool?
Besides on-page SEO, use guest postings to get backlinks for your real estate website.
In a week time you might sense if there is any problem in indexing. For more information,
I am seeing it already crawled,
You should ignore such sites and move ahead for other social bookmarking sites. There are many social bookmarking sites are already available which work smoothly. There might be problem with that social bookmarking site.
For performance, both sites should be promoted online. The last performance gain can't be split. The loss of performance should be covered by promoting both the sites further. As far as indexed URLs are concerned on the old domain, these can be removed by using GSC.
In case you do not want to loss the performance of first site then keep it as it is and create new site PAC from scratch.
Please Upvote if answer looks appropriate to you!
The visible content of inner pages in the SERP while searched 'allied industrial partners' is other than the meta description. It is because, the other content is more optimized than the meta description for the key phrase. The key phrase is at later part in the meta description in comparison to that text content. Hope you can further optimize these for a desired result.
Home page is showing meta description in the SERP when the key phrase is searched. Home page has many backlinks from the searched key phrase due to which it is ranking for the key phrase and there wasn't necessary to look into other parameters for the ranking.
Please let me know once you get the desired result. Also, if you like this answer then please upvote. Thank you.
It looks the sitemaps of the website are not getting updated with the new URLs created. I checked a weblog page under category URL, linked from the top menu. This page was not found in the sitemap. Also, there is a page /blog/. This page is not linked from any page on the website. This page is available in page-sitemap and post-sitemap too. There is a need to overhaul the sitemaps getting generated.
Product pages have very thin unique content. Add some unique content like product description etc.
Your website is indexed without www in URL. As your URL with www is getting redirected to without www URL. Please check,
Please let me know if you are experiencing any other issue in this regard.
Hi, if you have basic knowledge of SEO and you want to sell SEO work then gain expertise first in what you know. You can divide the SEO packages into three parts i.e. silver, gold, and platinum; and you can increase the number of activities in gold and platinum packages in comparison to silver. In the silver package, you can provide 10 keywords plan, in the Gold package, you can provide 20 keywords plan, and in the platinum package, you can provide more than 30 keyword plans. You can also divide these three plans into three sections: on-page SEO, off-page SEO activities, and reporting. In the basic package (sliver), you can offer on-page activities with some limitations, and all activities in the platinum package (advance). You can also increase or decrease the number of activities as per the packages category. I hope it will help you in creating the SEO packages.
First step, redirect the IP URL to your domain URL. You can get a plugin, 301 redirects, to apply this.
This is not a major issue as your developer said. Though you can remove such words to see the impact. As, SEO is a trivial process for many times. Even Google needs to employ SEO professionals to promote their products in their Google search engine. At times you never know whether this will work or that unless you try and check.
Another way to improve the traffic to your blog is by improving DA with strategic backlinkings. User experience can be improved to engage the users visiting the blog post pages. And, likewise.
Think of your audience who actually read the content generated. If after reading the old content the new content will be liked by your readers then you can keep generating such content. Otherwise you should stop generating such duplicate or similar content. Like the readers, search engines too will dislike such content.
You should explain your reporting manager about how SEO works. You can provide daily activity report and fortnightly ranking report to the manager.
This has happened because of the Google's algorithm updates. What you should do right now are,
- Make a competitor analysis for on-page SEO and adjust your pages accordingly
- Work more on off-page SEO
You should offer full SEO package rather than partial packages. This will benefit in many ways. First of all, you will have to chance to give results to your new clients. Another most important benefit is, you will grow yourself as a full-stack SEO professional. The pressure of getting results will push you well.
Note: I'm not the web dev on this project, but I oversee it. So I do my part to help where I can, shine light on what can be improved, and do all the SEO research that I suggest to the team to implement.
So our website (
https://tradehub.pro) have titles that change once the content is loaded. For example, if you go to
https://tradehub.pro/stock/aapl the first few seconds it will show as
Stock | Info, News, & Data but when it's done fetching all the data, the title changes. In this example, to
AAPL - $131.86 (price changes during market hours). Other pages are like this too, such as
https://tradehub.pro/user/rich title at first is
User - Trade Hub then switches to
Username - Trades & Performance Stats on Trade Hub as well as a few other pages (blog posts, user generated content/posts/trades).
The description will also change once the page has fetched all the data from the APIs.
So the issue is, when the website is being crawled it will get indexed with the placeholder titles and descriptions- presumably because the pages don't load fast enough by the time crawler moves onto the next URL. Which then gets these links marked as issues in some webmaster (yandex) & SEO tools (moz/ahref). (see image)
![Yandex webmaster, dupe titles issues](https://i.imgur.com/TS2PD36.png "Yandex Webmaster Titles Issues")
So my question is, what can help solve this? Other than speeding up the pages load time. We're working on a new web app design right now, haven't gotten to these pages yet but the speed of market data we're fetching for our Discord bot has increased tremendously so can only assume same will go for website- so hoping that is the case. But this type of data takes time to fetch, unless it's truly the method/code being used for this current/soon to be old site. Is there anyway to tell crawlers to slow down? Wait X seconds on each page when crawling before indexing?
I know there's a timer you can set, but I think it's only for the time it waits between the next URL- to lighten the load on the server. Or will it wait on that page for the specified time before moving to the next?
Appreciate if you read this far, and your feedback. Thanks
I haven't seen this on Google, is there one? If not, then the question in my original message still stands.
I have an e-commerce site on which I have a very annoying problem for several months. Indeed, despite the many SEO optimizations made on a category page (very important because 10K searches/month), it does not manage to be placed in the first results of Google, even worse, it keeps going down in the SERP.
On this category page I have done the same SEO optimizations as on all the other pages of my site (these other pages, which all appear in the first search results), and yet, nothing is done, my category page keeps falling down.
Namely, the targeted keyword is not competitive (a new site created 3 months ago managed to place itself on the first page of Google on this same keyword ...), that I have no Google penalty, and that all my SEO signals are green. Therefore, I don't understand why my category page doesn't go up in the SERP... because, after checking, it is on average at the 50th position, which is far from being optimal...
Do you have any idea what the problem is ? Any advice on how to solve it ?
Thanks in advance, Theo
This might help you,
Okay, thank you. What if I were to change the alt text for all images to the article title? Or a few meta keywords from the article? Would that be helpful?
I think there may be too many to change the link text manually, but what if the link text was also the link? So instead of "a href=article.html>here" it might instead be "a href=article.html>article" ?
Hi @binayjha (2200) Thanks for your suggestion Sir
These warning messages are to not to loss the opportunities. If a link is assigned from images with alt attribute or text links with proper anchor text then it is fruitful for SEO. There will not be a negative score by this but by using it properly there can be a positive score.
Hi @VagishaJagroop, You talked above at on-page SEO only. Off-page SEO is missing and this is what your website requires to rank in top. Currently your website has a DA 14, Spam-score 22, and number of backlinks is less than 40. This backlinks profile must be improved to fulfill the requirement.
Please provide the website URL to locate the issue associated.
SERM directly linked with the domain trust. Following are the latest SERM tips,
- Remain available on all relevant online platforms
- Use social media to reach audience
- Listen your audience
- Get maximum number of online reviews or feedback
- Give content marketing an importance
If you like above answer then please upvote, thank you.
Can you show me the problem please?
You should remove the pages from Google's cache using the Search Console.
Search engines like Google love manual SEO processes and hate automated processes. As far as AI generated content is concerned, it contains many problem including duplicate issue. Google is able to segregate the manual acts and automated acts.
AI-generated content are not SEO-friendly.
The menu should be user-friendly. It will make the menu search engines friendly too.
- Link name of the pages
- Accessibility of all the web pages
Above are the two important points to keep in mind while working on the menu of a website.
Inspect the URL in Google Search Console to make it crawled immediately. Alternate way is to get some backlink for this page or get some internal link for this page. In either case it will be crawled at the earliest opportunity.
This might be helpful to you,
Please provide your website URL.
Hi @roy, Above links provided to view the screenshots are not working. Meanwhile, please implement the above two points. Things might resolve.
You have been rightly informed. You can check it in Google Cache, if the page is live, or using the Search Console.
I am seeing two things,
- HREFLANG attribute is not used.
- While changing language, product related details remain same which are greater part of content on the page. It is a duplicate content issue.
By fixing these two, things should settle. Also, if possible, add some fresh content to the pages after fixing to do it in better way.
Yes, it will be regarded as a backlink from the linking domain with a diminished quality. In this case, linking page authority becomes zero as the link used doesn't exist as a page. Still such links too are beneficial.
Most probable cause is server errors. So that when Google-bot tried to crawl, the website was inaccessible. There is a need to check the crawlability issues and fix.
It depends on overall SEO, both on-page and off-page. In the current scenario, you can optimize the content more and try to win some backlinks for the page.
- Ethical SEO - You can promote other links to move ahead of that link.
Quality always matters more in case of backlinks too. At the same time domain authority of the linking site also matters. The combination of these two always triumph. For example, a backlink for an seo service provider's website from an SEO blog of 96 DA is better than a backlink from a generic website with 100 DA.
Hi Mohit, The SEO for eCommerce website is like of other websites. There are two facets of SEO, on-page and off-page. After applying the SEO like in normal website, check for different markup schemas you can apply.
We do not require to work on such APIs etc. We expect such things, if needed, from developer side.
You can use marketplaces like,
- Google Shopping
- Facebook Shop
List your products over there to appear in product searches. Also, you can run paid advertisements for your listed products to take more leverage.
Removal of bad backlinks is the prime direct solution. Disavow links are meant to be ignored by Google while deciding the ranking. Another alternate way is to build more quality backlinks. You still have to strengthen your backlink profile. Ensure the links won are quality backlinks only.
If a plugin loads when a webpage load then only the load-time speed will be effected. For example, Form 7 plugin loads with the load of contact form load in a webpage. In your case, plugin is not loading with the webpage. So, there won't be any impact on speed of the webpage loading whether that plugin gets activated or not.
Though a WordPress developer might have a better idea to speed up the website.
What should I do to make my website more visible in the search engine? Apply on-page and off-page SEO What are the benefits and drawbacks of using SEO techniques? Benefit is, you will get the desired targeted traffic to your website. Drawback is, it is a time taking and continuous process. How can I effectively use SEO techniques to improve my website ranking? Strictly follow the guidelines issued by respective search engines. What other benefits can I get from using SEO techniques? In the long run the ROI is a multiple of the investment. Where can I find coupons or deals for SEO-related services?

It looks the website has been hacked and external code has been injected. Check for it in Google Search Console's Security & Manual Actions. How I suspected so is, I checked the source in Google's cache of your website,
For solution, contact your developer to fix the issues. After fixing, submit the site for reconsideration using Google Search Console.
Hope you will have a smile by following these.
Up and down in rankings are usual things in SEO. Do a competitor analysis adjust your pages accordingly and keep going. Search engines keep marketers always busy specially nearer to Christmas holidays. This trend is evident every year from middle of October to first week of January.
Don't give yourself any excuse, "you have not fixed the errors this is why rankings dropped". This may be or may not be a cause of drops. Fix these at your earliest.
We users take it as our duty to keep this platform clean. So, no need to mention it.
Yes @ms, Online shop owners upload CSV file to update content of the pages in bulk.
In case of top rankings you mentioned, there might be other factors at play. Like,age of domain, trust value of domain, and so on.
The link is still present there. Previously there were an author box below the article. In this, there were social icons. One of the icon had a link of your domain. View source of the link provided and try to find your domain for a better understanding.
Link to view the source of page:
The existing page can be optimized for the larger city area too. Use the suburb and main city name in page title etc. In addresses, wherever you use, mention the main city name too together with the suburb name. Winning some citations from prominent directories will take you there.
- Too many redirects are harmful to SEO. Too many redirects make server slower.
- The inactive job posting pages should not be deleted. Keep the pages with a status like, "Not accepting applications anymore".
- Show relevant active jobs on the inactive job pages to minimize the bounce rate.
Hope the above might help you.
@devikbalami Please use the community section for the help. Discuss it there with people, Google support will be forced to jump into it.
Support and the Google community can certainly help if you are ready to correct the mistakes made.
It will be sorted out, just do the needful. And yes, don't think otherwise...
This link might help you,
Please note: The image link provided is not showing the desired image.
No guideline has been provided by Google so far which can help us get desired thumbnail image to appear in SERPs. The image fetching from Google depends on the matching of search query or intent with the best fit image available on the result page.
We can make best out of it by applying image SEO. The image file name, proper alt and title attribute of the image tag, and text appearing on the image can be the deciding factors of the thumbnail appearing in the SERPs.
I recommend to maintain only one website rather than multiple websites. With one SEO effort, benefits will be shared with all the pages on the website.
When a website links an another website then the linking website passes the link juice to the linked website irrespective of whether a link is declared dofollow or nofollow.
If a link is declared dofollow then search engines jump to the linked webpage to crawl unlike in case of nofollow. In terms of SEO, crawling of a webpage and hence a website is beneficial. As many times such crawlings occur that much SEO gets benefited in terms of results.
In this way, dofollow links have an upper hand in delivering results. At the same time, do not ignore the power of nofollow links even.
Subdomains and domains are treated as two different properties by search engines. Both should have separate robots.txt files etc. As @ms mentioned, if the content on both type of pages you mentioned are different then things are fine. If not then Google has mentioned in documents,
> Provide one version of a URL to reach a document
To prevent users from linking to one version of a URL and others linking to a different version (this could split the reputation of that content between the URLs), focus on using and referring to one URL in the structure and internal linking of your pages. If you do find that people are accessing the same content through multiple URLs, setting up a 301 redirect from non-preferred URLs to the dominant URL is a good solution for this. If you cannot redirect, you may also use the rel="canonical" link element.
Having pages from subdomains and the root directory access the same content, for example, domain.com/page.html and sub.domain.com/page.html.
You should hire an SEO expert who can locate the problem to reach the solution. Meanwhile, you can try by updating the content of pages for better quality. It will certainly give you a respite for a while whatever problem is there.
It is hard to tell without inspecting the Google Search Console. Try to figure out changes occurred on the page or off the page, to get a clue of correcting measures.
The issue is already addressed in previous thread, https://www.seoforum.com/thread/my-blogging-website-pages-not-indexing-on-google for the same site.
In Google Search Console there is a section of Removals. All unwanted URLs can be removed from the Google's cache. After this, apply for review by making them fixed in GSC. This will resolve the issue. Also, there is no need to redirect non-existing URLs anymore.
Few steps need to be taken,
- Check whether those images are getting called on any page of the website, then remove those.
- By default WordPress create pages for each image. Set these pages non-indexable by checking the box besides noindex, nofollow in the bottom part of the pages.
- Ask Google to review these errors as you have fixed, using Google Search Console.
Hope this will bring a smile to you. Please let us know the outcome.
The website requires attention for both on-page SEO and off-page SEO to achieve the traffic goal. The website still has to win the trust of Google for the keywords. It is under consideration right now. SEO has to be applied to fill the gap of trust.
This website needs improved on-page SEO and quality strategic backlinks to improve organic traffic.
Quality content on the site is one of the strong parameters required to rank in the SERPs. Besides it, on-page and off-page SEO should be in place to beat the competition.
The new additions and notable modifications are:
- New deceptive behavior related-topics such as misleading functionality
- New section on other behaviors that can lead to demotion and or removal, such as online harassment, and scam and fraud
- Consolidated topics related to link spam and thin content
Hello @aspirerankings, I checked the backlink profile of the website.
- Number of toxic backlinks is higher for the domain
- Backlinkgs with proper anchor text are least
Hope these two points are sufficient to understand the depth of missing points and you can correct them.
You should tell search engines that, URL olddomain.com/xyz is canonical to URLS,
In this way, new pages will be main pages to be crawled by search engines and the old domain page will be treated canonical to these new domain pages.
What is the motivation for random visitor to publish high quality unique content on a forum? In 99.99% cases it would be exploited to spam for links therefore a lot of work for mods. We have to take in account AI generated / spun content and how hard it actually is to identify.
I don't think it's a good idea and would stick with earning the option to publish articles first by posting on the forum. After reaching certain score, users would be allowed to post their blogposts.
Ignore my last post here, found the button last posts :)
My initial steps goes like this while looking on a webpage with SEO perspective,
- Page title to find the keywords targeted for the webpage
- On-page SEO applied for the targeted keywords
- Backlinks profile
- SEO audit
Guest posting is the best way to go through. For the easy things, I have just posted 5 example links here, https://www.seoforum.com/thread/blog-post-rules.
Yes, the Medium set it so. You can find more information here,
You can google for it and make your own list. Alternate way to prepare your own list is, follow a competitor's backlinks. Here are a few for you,
www.vingle.net www.sooperarticles.com www.itsmypost.com www.geekbloggers.com www.joinarticles.com
Update some content on the page, text/ image/ video or whatever content you can update. Also, get 1-2 good backlinks. Things will settle with better outcome.
Yes, we can say so.
No. The web page from where your website is linked can be noindex, nofollow etc.
Yes @Cahit, everything is fine in that way.
The backlinks from noindex, nofollow type of pages are not shown in Google Search Console. That means, please check whether such linking pages are crawlable or not.
If the content in Medium.com has a backlink to your website's page then only it will be counted as a backlink. Only content will not be treated as backlink of your website. Better, start having backlinks from the Medium Blog.
There are more than 200 parameters plus the combinations of them, which impact search engine ranking. The final ranking is decided by the resultant of all effecting parameters applied. For example, traffic to a webpage is a parameter, a web page with a very high traffic with no SEO applied can rank higher than a webpage with a good SEO score.
The pages with lower ranking needs more overall SEO efforts to improve.
It takes zero days. The very same day it get crawled and within 3 days it gets reflected in the Links section of Google Search Console.
Change in link on a webpage force Google to crawl the page at the earliest.
Changing the type of content may not work. For example, if a site is ranking with "seo" keyword and later we want to change the keyword to "flower", then it will not work as expected. Search engines make a profile of trust with a category. We can't change such category at randomly.
If the category is same then yes, we can target more relevant keywords by adding or modifying content of pages or adding more pages.
@Ivosladur Keep updating all the web pages, if possible, as frequently as you can. Even you can updating the pages somehow on daily basis.
Yes @ms, your idea sounds better. We users will eagerly wait for the moment.
@ms It should be allowed for everyone, if possible. Moderator will have the power to publish. The unique content which can enrich the platform should be published. Let's formulate it in the best possible way.
Ensure an internal page link from the key phrase as anchor text. Also, win 1 backlink for the key phrase with brand name included. Moreover, you can optimize the alt attribute of the images on the page with the key phrase or parts of it included.
Google indexing process doesn't take account of duplicate meta description, page title, or so. It might be because of large number of files to crawl. Google takes some time in such a case.
At times, content improvement makes the indexing process faster.
Google has nothing to do with your business policy, the refund policy. Focus on keywords research to better the results desired.
It looks a matter of hacking of your website.
You should take following steps immediately,
- Contact your developer, ask to check the website code etc. everything and repair.
- Check Google Search Console for manipulations.
- Change all the passwords possible
Please let us know once the things have been fixed or any further help required in between. Good luck ahead...
I used Multilogin for a long time but switched to Hidemyacc. It is much more profitable and there is excellent support
You can try free: DOWNLOAD
It's a nice solution @BrookLopez.
Google bots use US IPs and the above article is visible in US without any login. For other users they have capped it. I checked it using a web proxy for a New York's IP and I am able to see the article without any login.
This is not cloaking.
Giving error of 403 means forbidden. The files or folders exist but server administrator has not given an access to them.
Hope these unwanted URLs are not included in the sitemap. Submit these URLs manually one-by-one for indexing, using the Search Console. Then, remove those URLs manually from Google's cache, use the Search Console.
You will get the solution.
Option third looks better. Let the traffic flow as long as it flows. By time, bounce rate of such pages will increase and ranking will disappear.
Regarding option 1, with this step you will save Internet surfer's time and effort. As the relevant content is missing then the page should not rank. The first step will keep the link juice intact. It will be a socially responsible step.
@Ivosladur, It is alarming and you must overhaul to find the exact problem. You should do it like a war level emergency.
@Ivosladur Keep updating the page as frequently as you can. Please analyze the referring backlinks using Search Console. If you find suspicious then you can download those and submit to disavow. Keep the calm and do the needful. Good luck!
Please update the content of pages with some additional content either, text, image, video, or whatever you can update. Please do it some frequently. If possible, make some internal linkings to the pages.
Other things you are doubting might not be true. If so, hacking a SERP will have a meaning, hacking of Google. Which doesn't look possible.
Please do let me know, in how many days it is working for you.
The existing content can be updated with new added content to meet the intent too. User experience also should be maintained to meet the intent of search. It is possible to do without disturbing the existing content or rankings.
Barry Schwartz confirms; the update has been weak and slow so far
Has anyone of you seen the impact of this update? I am not seeing any impact of it around, till now.
With the structure of web pages of the website you mentioned, it has an upper hand to rank with the desired keywords. It requires content optimization for the keywords, internal linking as suggested by @ms in the above answer, and a few backlinks.
We should keep calm at the moment until the 1st week of September. By this, we will have some conclusions with better insights. No @lokeshsingh?
Can't wait to see how's this update gonna work for quality content vs. shitty/cheap content. Would love to see Google dump those scraped/spun review sites to 128th page.
The awaited update on Google's Helpful Content has been rolled out today. It may take a couple of weeks to get fully implemented.
To know more about the helpful content update:
Let us know your views on this update...
A website with lesser number of redirects is preferred by SEO. We should always avoid unnecessary redirection of URLs.
Redirection of a URL decrease the speed of webpage.
I recommend keep URL A, without the redirection.
There must be some manual action if it is indexed and not reflecting in Google SERP. Search Console can say the real issue.
"site:" should be used in small letters to get the desired results. In case of all capital letters, the conditional search get void and whole string is treated as the search string without any functional operation. So, yes, these two searches are different.
Broader match keywords might have started ranking which are lesser relevant to the content of your site. This might be making the bounce rate higher than usual.
You might have started noticing so by the last February or later than this.
To get rid of it, start working on keywords selection and their concise ranking. Good luck ahead!
Yes, you are at losing end in terms of SEO. You should keep the old blog pages and for new one, save as the old page into a new page with a new file name as per your blog title. And then update the new content. This way you will have old blogs too on your website.
Once your web page is crawled by Google, it gives a trust score, depending on various factor. Say, it starts ranking in top at the SERP and then you changed the whole content of the page. This will make the page lose the rank. So, please find a way to correct the things.
Thanks for sharing it.
Hope you have checked rankings in Google manually too. It doesn't look SEMrush issue. GSC provides an average position and not current ranking at the front. After clicking that row's data, rank history appears. Please check in all the way and confirm. Possibly, you might require to improve rankings.
SEO audit should be the first step rather than keyword research. Foremost, prepare the website for search engines in all the way. SEO audit provides any technical error or warning to fix. After fixing all the SEO issues, research for keywords and then optimize according to the keywords chosen.
You can stop crawling of this page even if you keep this page on your website.
If Google mistrust a site and this site is linked from your site then Google starts mistrusting your site too.
You can stop Google bot by crawling this page and and linked pages by using following meta tag inside the head tag.
Please update the anchor tag with rel=”sponsored” or rel=”nofollow” attribute to avoid the dilemma. After updating, request manually to index the page. It might take 2-7 days to get the traffic again.
Assuming you are using WordPress as your CMS. Category URLs and Tag URLs are different. Also, the content of respective pages are different. So, there is no need to do anything even in case of same category & tag names.
There is a need to follow the insights provided at the below link,
Backlinks strategy plays a prominent role while considering to rank globally.
If you believe your audience may search your product or service together with price then you can use it in the page title and meta description.
I believe, people do not search a product in search engines like Google together with price. So, using price in title/meta will not benefit in terms of SEO.
You can consider using it in terms of UX.
I am partially agree with @Djohnavid021. Besides the options you mentioned, there are many other options where content can be re-published. For example, medium.com, linkedin.com, dev.com, wordpress.com, blogspot.com, ...and so on.
I just checked with few keywords and found blogspot.com blogs are ranking in Google. If your blog on blogspot.com is not ranking then just optimize it in better way for search engines. Whenever your blog will meet the desired ranking factors, it will rank. Keep doing the good work!
Reduce the bad backlinks to the website is the way to reduce the spam score. Easier way is, disavow the list of bad links using following link.
Nowadays, the algorithm has been updated and Google ignores bad links while allocating a rank in the SERP. So, no need to worry for the spam score for ranking.
There is no need to worry for bad backlinks anymore. Google has started to ignore the bad links while considering ranking.
You should not de-index the non-www pages of your client until the content on pages are objectionable or completely irrelevant to your website. Hope you can keep those pages. Lengthier websites with changing content on a domain gets privilege in ranking.
A 404 Not Found, error can occur either because of wrong link placed somewhere on a webpage or the page is dead now. In first case, correct the link placed on pages. In second case, remove the links of the page from webpages.
Check the things manually then submit for re-consideration.
This type of redirection error usually seen when the default URL and URL in sitemap are different. For example, when I tried to visit above URL,
It redirected to,
Please mark the trailing slash, "/". Please note, Google doesn't crawl a page which is redirecting to another page.
If it is not the case then submit the URL manually for indexing. The error will vanish after a while.
The list can be acquired by searching for it on Google like search engine. Then start building your own list. For example, I just searched on Google and found following useful link with the list.
When it comes to blog posts, there are some interesting topics to choose from that will surely attract traffic. We recommend that you use the surferseo tool when writing your posts. Once Posts are ready, it's a good idea to link to the article in other forums. Regarding guest posts, you can also suggest posts with topics most likely to be approved. If the administration is willing, we can write such a guest post ourselves :)
@Gamerseo I am in favor of making this forum platform content rich. There is a blogs post facility shown but currently limited to the admin only, as I guess. If other contributors too can participate to make this platform great then better. This is what I think...
Can I submit the same article on 50 different -different article submission websites? If yes then my article crawled at one site so it's a waste of time for me. if no ? then how much can submit the same article on a different website in a day and how much wait for crawled? if not crawled after some time can again submit it on a different website?
Yes, same article can be published at different websites. Hope this activity is to win backlinks and not to rank that article on another website in Google or so search engines. The spiders will crawl all such pages and value the backlinks to your site with the link juice of linking website.
If a submitted website is not crawled or cached then the webpage link can be bookmarked on various bookmarking sites. It works.
15MB is a LOT of data.
Imagine 15 million characters X number of sites available on the Internet...
This pattern of search result is shown when a query brings multiple search results from a same domain. The strongest page for the query is the first URL shown and rest web pages from the website are shown under it.
As you want a particular page should not appear under a URL when a particular query is searched, that page should not have those keywords. That unwanted page should be optimized for other keywords. There is no alternative solution for it.
No @tiff_frazier, it's not working. It is giving a 404 not found error.
Can you provide the screenshot of such a listing please! Need to understand the problem a bit more...
This is an average position. If the number is clicked then ranking of each day is displayed in a graph. When I checked manually, your website is on 3rd & 4th position for the keyword you specified.
Think the ease-of-use etc. parameter while deciding these things. For example, SEO professional might feel at ease while publishing an optimized blog post using WordPress instead of publishing it using a raw HTML file, or likewise.
If I would have been given power to take decision, I could have gone with WordPress.
@skumar881212 There is a need of SEO overhaul. Almost all sections required a re-work. There is not a specific section which requires a revamp. In other words, a restart of SEO efforts required.
Due to the increased competition in your niche, there is a need of both on-page SEO and Off-page SEO improvements.
Thanks for sharing.
Following backlinks of established competitor looks the best way.
Thank for sharing the information on latest google updates
The report shows the status of video indexing on your site. It helps you answer the following questions:
- In how many pages has Google identified a video?
- Which videos were indexed successfully?
- What are the issues preventing videos from being indexed?
Google has just announced about the rolling out of video indexing report in search console within next six months. If Google will find a video on the crawling webpage then inside the coverage section there will be a navigation link for the indexing report.
Google believes, as video content is spreading across the web with a lightening speed, it must be taken care specifically. This is to aid the marketers and business owners. Let us welcome this roll out.
@vspot I had checked your homepage of English site and backlinks profile. I had found, above two things can make your site well placed.
Strategic backlinks mean, you need more backlinks to strengthen keywords targeted.
Strategy: If the targeted keyword is, fifa coins, then you should have 2-3 quality backlinks from this keyword as anchor text, more backlinks from the anchor text which have more words than your keywords. For example, fifa 22 coins, instant fifa coins..., and likewise.
In SEO, many things can be done at a single point of time. There are 200+ algorithmic parameters which influence the ranking, plus combination of those parameters.
SEO is simple and must be kept simple.
- Meta description should be optimized. Something like,
Looking instant delivery of FUT Coins? WhatsGaming™ offers cheaper FIFA Coins with secured buying, and 24/7 English Whatsapp support to make in-game purchases.
- To strengthen the long-term competitive position, strategic backlinks required.
Yes, @binayjha is right. The ALT attribute will index your images in images.google.com which is enough for generating traffic. Also you can tag images in the meta data. But in general, you don't have to rely on the images themselves. You can create a page for every image, with H1, relevant content, internal links, etc. And let those pages become your organic landing pages. This is the best way your audience will be able to find the images and download them.
@jaap The intent of the query is category of links. Any type of link is valuable in the SEO effort. For example,
- Links from web 2.0 sites
- Links from directory sites
- Links from classified sites ...the list goes on.
Hope you are not talking about spam links.
Any backlink is valuable in SEO. Web 2.0 backlinks are regarded as quality backlinks. If you doubt, it may take time in getting cached by search engines, then you can make such pages crawled by bookmarking such linking page.
Hope you have considered variety of backlinks rather than only from web 2.0 websites.
Besides the alt attribute of image tag, use description of images to tell your users and search engines about the images. Treat each such image like a product in an e-commerce website. Use multiple attributes for the image product and create different URLs of such attribute-rich images. These will help in the images website SEO you required.
As you stated, you should mind in improving the domain authority. Rest things will settle on their own.
Same URLs with different content will be treated as 1 page and randomly cached content of any one URL at a time.
What I suggest is, to present different content on pages there must be some variable in use. Take that variable which is recognizing a page content in the URL to make the URLs different for different content pages. This is possible.

- Check GSC on daily basis for any error associated with the website
- As many blog posts you can have that much benefit, try to make your website content rich.
- Use other blogging sites to post unique and quality content to get backlinks to your site
This link, https://rockcontent.com/blog/google-penalty-checker/, can help you.
You can create 10-20 blog posts targeting that keyword on,
- Your Website
- ...the list goes on
These blogs created should have unique and quality content so that these can rank in Google search engine at the top.
Google always follows the rules. And to be very frank with you, the update date doesn't matter if Google already crawls your blog or website. As per Google the date is not so important than the quality of the content. It will make nothing unless you put some technical update to that blog. But you can update the blog title with the numerous dates or years( 2022 or 2023 ).
With your website you are informing the search engines that for what the website is meant. Search engines might still doubt or would like to judge how well it is. Search engines started loving the website if other websites too say the same about the website. If search engine grabbed an information that it is of game server provider then search engines look if outsiders also say that this website is of game server provider. Now here comes the concept of link popularity or off-page SEO.
Win links from keywords from variety of sites. Make it natural and not spam. There are various ways to win backlinks. For example,
- Business Directory Listings
- Classified Listings
- Blog Postings
- Guest Blogging
- Video Postings
- Infographic Postings
- PPT Submissions
- PDF Submissions
- Social Media Marketing (organic & paid)
- ...the list goes on
The aim is to popularize your website link and win some traffic from other sources over the Internet.
@mit_midastouch Can you please explain it a bit more! I want to understand it.
Changing published date will not benefit in search engine rankings or so. Even it should be avoided to do so frequently. Google gives a trust score to a site, manipulations or unnatural acts might lower the trust score which can be fatal in the rankings.
Yes, it improves ranking in Google if you are linked with Twitter posts. There is a concept of link popularity in SEO. It plays major role while ranking in SERPs. Link is whether dofollow or nofollow or even if there is no link but only domain name is mentioned, it is beneficial in Google rankings.
Yes @ms, as it is the size of HTML document data and doesn't include the file size of images or videos etc.
There shouldn't be any harm by inviting general public as a guest blogger and write on SEO or related topics. There can be a guideline and after approval only the guest posts should be published.
Or, in whatever way, if we can make this platform more content rich! Keep brainstorming. @ms
You can manually find many guest post sites. I also do that. You can use advance search operators:
allinurl:writeforus your niche allinurl:guestpost your niche allintext:writeforus your niche (you can try many variations like that)
allinurl:guestpost digital marketing allinurl:writeforus web design
It says: > Googlebot can crawl the first 15MB of content in an HTML file or supported text-based file. After the first 15MB of the file, Googlebot stops crawling and only considers the first 15MB of content for indexing. Other crawlers may have different limits.
There is no harm in redirecting a webpage into a faceted page of an e-commerce website.
Faceted pages are the pages we see after sorting with an option. After the sorting, URL gets changed and also the content gets changed as in the original page. So, faceted pages too can be crawled and indexed.
If the content on different domain pages are different then they should not be declared canonical to each other domains. I checked few URLs like, https://www.zazzle.co.uk/about and https://www.zazzle.com.au/about. Both domain pages have same content. Similarly, most of the content on other domains are same.
You need to be honest while creating web pages with unique content. Making the content unique is the solution.
You will have to remove the redirects finally after migrating to example.com Shopify website.
Making this platform content rich through blog postings. I am watching people are not posting blogs, just discussing a problem and then go away. In my view, admin should update the blog post guidelines for mutual benefits. What is your opinion or views?

The hreflang attribute on each page should include a reference to itself as well as to all the pages that serve as alternates for it. If your Spanish website sells Iberian ham to customers in Spain, France, and Portugal only, the hreflang attributes for your homepage might look like this:
The same annotations should appear on your French and Portuguese homepages.
This is related with overall page quality. If Google finds the crawl budget is not sufficient to crawl the page then it left over for next time.
To get rid of it, look how the page quality can be improved and fix.
As you earlier mentioned, the backlinks from youtube.com will appear in GSC. But what you are mentioning now will not appear in GSC. You can search in Google as you have mentioned in the description of the question.
Keywords rich URL is helpful in SEO.

As per observations, nofollow links have been beneficial since beginning. Not following the link means, the search engine will not go to visit that linked page or website. But, search engines note the link. Even if there is not link and only domain name is mentioned as text, then also it is beneficial in ranking. The concept of link popularity applies here.
A subdomain is beneficial over a newly registered domain.
- Subdomain will be indexed quickly.
- Subdomain will share the domain authority.
- Subdomain will carry forward the trust of search engines towards the domain.
What else you need!
Meta description shown looks same and the page title has position of domain name changed. It looks the domain name is added later in the page title than Google assigned the domain name in title. Usually, Google put the domain name in the title.
You are always welcome @jasonseoexecutive.
Okay, Thanks for your useful information, appreciate.
Multiple domains can be ranked from a company for the same keyword. Company should target different keywords for different domains to save the efforts in bringing them at top rank.
Listing multiple domains by a company for the same keyword doesn't violate any Google Policy.
Business pages with address verified will have advantage in comparison to the profiles which have not mentioned or verified the address.
Google will start profiling as per the user-engagement received by the page. If this profile receives repetitively unique visitors from specific location then Google give this profile a priority in localized searches. If this profile gets many unique visitors from a specific location and another profile with a verified address of that location gets almost no visitor or far lesser visitors then the first business profile with many visitors from that location will have a priority in searches.
It's been just days, but maybe you have already noticed; Twitter has dropped nofollow from links across their site, so basically all the links are now so called dofollow.
But why? This is the part we don't know. I think nofollow will be back shortly, but who knows. Twitter has been using nofollow sanitized links since 2008, and even if they dropped it, major search engines would likely still consider those (huge amount of) links as nofollow.
What is a nofollow link?
Since 2005 (Google), you can tell search engine that a link should not be followed by tagging it using rel="nofollow". Those links should be less valuable or pass no juice at all.
Oh me too now. I've got them disabled. But why do they all do it, if they are suppose to know what is a paginated page. If your site is Commerce, or has a blog, chances are, more pages on your website are paginated, than non-pag pages..... And yet, it throws the warnings.
Annoying! In fact once I did that and we got better results, it then in fact warned us about issues on the login page, which isn't in the site map, or anywhere else!! Just super super fussy.
You should consult your developer at the moment. This link is helpful in this regard, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51437360/how-to-fix-403-forbidden-redirect-issue-happens-while-adding-shopping-cart-pri.
Good Luck Ahead!
Hi @mktonline, As you have already set a 301 redirect, you do not require to use canonical tag. It is sufficient.
Update body content with a unique text content and use to link keywords mentioned on the page with respective other page. Use social media postings with your website URL on daily basis.
Hope this will resolve the issue in sometime.
It 100% doesn't matter. Search engines treat paginated pages differently. They append the page 2 content to page 1 and treat the whole as a single piece of content.
Normally, different URLs are treated as different piece of content. Which is in case of the tools as you mentioned above.
It's tough. You can't tell what kind of websites will be the next victim before it all happens. So I'd say read Google's guidelines, push out great content on regular basis, always try to beat your competition and if you do something "grey hat", make sure you don't leave footprints. AT ALL.
Can't compose better overall answer, because it depends on so many attributes.
Yeah, we can also start a blog directly on our site. That's not a huge head-ache for me.
Just wondering why is this happening, as our competitors don't have blogs and fresh content either. Plus they have much less content, not original (copy&paste from XML feeds) and also don't add new products continually (more like once or twice a year).
This is completely weird to me; our store is the biggest in the city, we have 5-10x more reviews, 4.9 star average, rank first for the query in the regular results (those are below the Local places snippet), but at the same time, for this query, we are ranking somewhere deep in the list, like #5-6 in the snippet.
Is there anything specific about the snippet I am missing, or is it just a random Google pick and I can't do damn about it?
Any help is appreciated!
It looks content should be improved to improve your chances to rank. The ranking page has a better content and looks like a resourceful page. Google might have been confused and finally has given the rank.
You had to contact your developer for it. This might help you, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/58215104/whats-the-neterr-http2-protocol-error-about.
For the key phrase, IMG worlds of adventure, this website is pointing to another site. This means, this website is telling to search engines and page visitors that if you are looking for this phrase then the linked website is the right place. So your website is not getting ranked for this phrase as per your instruction to the search engines.
This website requires both on-page and off-page seo. Steps you should follow,
- Note down key words, the words which your target audience might type on the Internet to search a website like of yours.
- Use those words on relevant pages in page title and meta description.
- Get some backlinks, 2-3, with those keywords
The site will start ranking in Google.ae and you will have a smile. Keep smiling!
Feeling nice by knowing that you people require to use proxies for social media marketing. I never needed it and doing the needful in natural way. I needed proxies at times for a small time that too for browsing only. I find it free to use. hide.me.
It might be due to steep competition even...
I don't think word count is a useful metric to use to determine the direction of your blog content. Perhaps you can just try writing with as much factual information that you have and see where you go from there.
One to two links from the blog post content is regarded is sufficient for a normal blog post. Long form blog posts can have more links from the body text. I am agree with @RobbieDee(120), use it in natural way.
There is no limit on minimum and maximum number of targeting keywords on a web page. Even every word on your page can be a keyword or you might not target any keyword to rank.
For domain authority improvement, it is fine and not for ranking directly. There should be variety of links to popularize the link. Blog commenting is just one of them.
If your website has already a good DA then on-page optimization and 2-3 quality backlinks work well for the search engine ranking and traffic. This is simple but a bit tricky.
You can follow this thread, https://www.seoforum.com/thread/how-to-create-free-quality-backlinks, for a better understanding.
If your WordPress website is working well with proper page load time then there is no issue with SEO. There shouldn't be any confusion in this regard.
@abraham I meant, if you will have a broader content then all keywords will be inclusive naturally in the content itself. While deciding the topic, you need to research for the keyword. What related keywords are getting searched the most over the Internet, create a blog topic accordingly. Then you can forget keywords until the publishing of your blog.
I will suggest to follow the topic and not keywords in your blog posts. Keep the content in longer form and cover the topic in all the way. So that whatever information a visitor might require related to that topic, it should be covered in the blog post.
Google will love this content and rank you with many prominent keywords.
Setting Up an RSS Feed Open your web browser and go to FetchRSS.com. Register for a free account. Click on “manual RSS builder” Enter the URL of your website.

If we follow the search engine's guideline to optimize the web pages of a website then search engines will never penalize a website. It is easy to follow, step-by-step and it's done. Please do not try to find a shorter root achieve your goal of top rankings.
Thanks for the advices from you all.
There is no such function available on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
Keep those city pages with unique content and minimize bounce rate of the web pages.
Get 2-3 quality backlinks with those keywords to rise to the top.
You can keep the old landing page for Canada page and setup a new page for USA.
As per my knowledge and point of view, you should not delete any existing blog, as it could be playing a role in the SEO of your site. Updating the content regularly is always a good idea , so you may go update the content and don't delete any.
You should consult your developer to get these fixed. It is important to fix them for SEO. A website with 404 not found errors loss attention of Google and search engines stop visiting the website. This is harmful. So, get these fixed at your earliest.
If possible, use other domain. Why to take any risk!
If a better content is available on the page for a search query then Google will ignore showing the meta description value in the SERP. How you can avoid it is, make your meta description value more relevant to that search query. This is the only solution to it.
If those ad-content are relevant to your website then it will be regarded as not-bad-links. The page with lesser number of outgoing links is regarded good for link juice. Nowadays, bad links are ignored by Google while ranking is considered as per the latest updates. Also, even no-follow links have been given weight by search engines.
Blogging is regarded as the best way to win quality backlinks.
The key phrases,
- On-page seo
- eCommerce seo
Two type of users can make searches with above keywords. One, who are trying to know what are these and the other type of users, who are looking for services related to these keywords. In this way, both keywords have information and commercial both category labels.
I think you can put your website in the google search console there you can send requests to google for indexing, If everything will be good on your pages then Google may index your page soon. If not working this trick so you can do Interlinking with Indexed Pages.
I am assuming the lengthier web page means lengthier relevant text and other content. This will make the ranking chances pretty higher.
Update the content on the page on the website and make that page or your website as a whole, engaging. This will reduce the bounce rate and the ranking will be restored.
I don't think so. Some sites that are linking to my domain with me even knowing. I usually would have to use a backlink tool to check on my backlinks.
You've likely seen UTM code in SEO campaigns. You can use it to track which links in your site drive the most traffic and which do not. Using this code correctly can help you measure the performance of your SEO campaign, but you have to use it in the right way. The right way to use UTM codes is in your landing pages and main website page. You can't use it on internal links because Google may get confused and make tracking errors.
First of all, it's important to remember that UTMs are case sensitive. They should have a name that relates to your target audience. For example, if your campaign is called "Best Practice Distribution," you should put the campaign name in lower case. That way, people will recognize the name of the content. If you use "Best Practice Distribution," you'll know that the UTM code is referring to the content of your best practice website.
Another great use for UTM codes is in tracking advertising and marketing campaigns. You can create one by using Google Sheets. You can then record UTM codes for each ad you run and analyze how effective they are. You can use this code to monitor your marketing efforts and measure which ones are working best for you. You can even create a spreadsheet with all your observations. It will be useful if you can use it for all of your marketing campaigns, including SEO.
There is no harm in using the same image. But the SEO benefit in the image search on the search engine will be lost.
No point because it's gated.

- FAQ Schema
- Breadcrumb schema

I'm basically spreading around a Tumblr link (don't ask why)
I need real visitors that are on computers.
How on earth can I get real visitors to my blog?
Keep in mind I can call the blog anything.tumblr.com
And I can also add anything.tumblr.com/anything-here-to-make-them-click/
SEO, Google AdWords, and Facebook Ads will be helpful to fetch traffic on the blog.
I’m creating location pages for a company that has one physical location, but many pages dedicated to their service locations.
I feel I have a good handle on how to structure/optimize each single location page, but I’m unclear on how different/unique each page needs to be.
Right now, I have the pages structured the same (intro, services offered, how the services work, why you should hire the company, FAQs) but all worded differently.
For example, location page #1 would have the following H2s:
- Full Warehousing Services Offered in the Tampa, FL, Area
- How Do Our 3PL Services Work?
- Protect Your Assets, Hire a Reputable Warehousing Company
- Frequently Asked Questions
Location page #2 would have the following H2s:
- Our Full Line of Shredding Services Offered in St Petersburg, FL
- [Company’s Name]’s 3PL Process
- Why Choose [Company Name]?
- Frequently Asked Questions
So you see that the overall message of the H2s are the same, but all worded differently. Also, the overall message within the paragraphs within each H2 is the same, but all worded differently.
If you have experience/knowledge on this, I’d very much appreciate your feedback on if this is an acceptable way to structure these location pages. Is this enough of variation from location page to location page? Thank you!
Win good backlinks using blog postings, guest postings, and with other such methods. This will bring good DA to your site.
Google will take care of bad links itself. Regarding the outgoing links from your pages, those must be removed to save the link juice.
- Are you updating the content across the site?
- Any of your activity might be regarded as spamming.
You can use the robots.txt file to disallow the information you don't want to share with bots like contact form details, information about people working in your company, etc.
