  • Noah Miller upvoted Re: Duplicate keyword in URL

    There is no point to implement such a redundant URL structure. It's over-optimization, and it could be bad for your site, even though this isn't ordinary keyword stuffing. I'd suggest using simple URLs. Make em easy to read, short and descriptive. Do not overuse keywords just for sake of optimization. Think visitors-first, just like Google does, and you'll be good. It's honestly bad looking URL structure, and I'd avoid it if possible.

  • Noah Miller upvoted Duplicate keyword in URL

    Can duplicate keywords in URLs boost page importance on that keyword? Or is it potentially subject to penalisation? Think of some-product.com/some-product/some-product-{specific} where product specific would be either color, size, model, version or so. To me, it looks quiet spammy, but saw that on a site. They do well in G's SERP. I would rather not post their actual website for now, but you know get what i mean.

  • Noah Miller published thread How to rank a site as a rich answer on Google?

    For example, if you search Google for > SEO checklist you'll likely see rich answer as I captured on the screenshot below. It's now pretty common top result for frequently asked questions on Google, and from what I know, the CTR is really good for these results. ![SEO checklist Google top result](https://preview.ibb.co/ek6QEm/Screen_Shot_2017_12_17_at_23_05_01.png "SEO checklist rich answer") One thing I don't really understand is, how do you make your site appear like this? Does it have something to do with microdata like schema.org, or is it Google parsing the answer somehow from information on your website and you can't really affect how does it look? I have few well ranking pages for question queries that receive thousands of impressions, but they don't appear as a rich answer, so they are sitting on 2nd or 3rd position.

  • Noah Miller upvoted Site Issues and Errors

    SEO Forum has been developed by people. People make mistakes. Therefore, SEO Forum surely has some bugs and eventually may throw an unexpected error or behave the way it is not intended to. The best thing you can do in such a scenario: 1. Navigate to this thread (Site Issues and Errors) 2. Post issue you experienced here. OR (if you want it to be more of a discussion than a plain issue report) 1. Create new thread 2. Tag it `Meta` & `Site Issues and Errors` 3. Post issue in separate thread. We will do our best to fix it ASAP. Thank you for reporting!

    Categories were a bit messed up, but it looks alright now. Maybe it's been already fixed? Other than that, it looks good to me. Good work guys!

  • Noah Miller upvoted Let's Encrypt: Is it equally good for SEO as any other paid certificate?

    Is Let's Encrypt certificate equally good for SEO as any other certificate money could buy? I am about to launch my new website, but I am still not decided whether should I use Let's encrypt or buy something from certification authorities like Comodo?

  • Noah Miller replied to thread Let's Encrypt: Is it equally good for SEO as any other paid certificate?

    If you are asking, because you are considering https over http, then **the answer is https**, regardless the certificate. Read more details about [https vs. http](http://blog.searchmetrics.com/us/2015/03/03/https-vs-http-website-ssl-tls-encryption-ranking-seo-secure-connection/ ). If you're comparing any paid vs. Let's encrypt the more important question here is, what is the acceptance of the Certificaton Authority (CA), that issued your certificate. Talking about Google an their Let's Encrypt, these days you're good to go with it. And yes, it does equally good job securing your website as virtually any other certificate, assuming same parameters. If you are a bank or other financial (security critical) organization, there are better options though. However, I don't think that's the case.
