Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of web content in search engines using an understanding of search engines' processes and algorithms. Also known as "natural" or "organic" search, it is distinct from paid web advertising. Performance is typically measured by testing the appearance of a website for targeted search terms, and more specifically, ranked positions in search for important keywords. Techniques focus on content optimization, technical optimization and link building.

I'm writing structured data code for my breadcrumb and ran into a question about the position number of the item.

For Seattle:
1. US-->2. WA--->3. King County--->4. Seattle    

This is my breadcrumb for Seattle, which is in position 4.  The numbers are not displayed to the users of course, but in the code behind for structured data, the numbers are required by Google.  
"itemListElement": [{
    "@type": "ListItem",
    "position": 1,

Open in new window



However Canada doesn't have counties for their cities.  So on my Calgary page, the breadcrumb naturally will not show a "county" level.  but when it comes to the structured data code behind, which is appropriate, is calgary in position 3 or position 4?  

1.  Canada-->2. AB-->4. Calgary  

1.  Canada -->2. AB -->3. Calgary


Since all the US cities have the city at the fourth position, I wondered if I should "skip" a level for my pages on Canadian cities, but I'm not sure what the best practice is.  Should I code my structured data to put canadian cities in position 4, or position 3?

Hi,
This question is getting asked a lot from me lately and I am using my common sense to answer it, but need other opinions please.
Basically a company might have a large company name like:
http://averylargecompanynamethatisverylong.com
They may also have registered
http://asmallname.com
http://asmallnametoo.com

Now my question is more targeting to SEO.  Which domain should have their website hosted at?  Where should their emails be (as you don't want people to have to remember a really long email)

So my question is, if you have many domains for your company, which is the best one for hosting the website, and obviously the site with the smaller domain name would be best for email promoting so should you host the site at the best keyword, long domain, the have a web forwarder for all other domains, and then simply set up email hosting for the smaller domain.

I am asking from a SEO and marketing point of view.  

I think I know the answer, but I need a discussion to be sure.

This text below was found when I searched www.google.se and had the setting "Pages written in Swedish":

Landing slot, takeoff slot eller airport slot (egentlig en «luke») er en rettighet flyplasseier selger til et flyselskap som gir dette en mulighet til å tilpasse sine

(https://www.google.se/search?q=%22landing+slot%22&lr=lang_sv&newwindow=1&hl=sv&as_qdr=all&tbs=lr:lang_1sv&ei=B1Y9WZO7KYiW8QXZ3pOwAw&start=0&sa=N&biw=1366&bih=638)

But when I opened that website,

https://digitaltmuseum.se/011044500662/slot-over-slot-sig-bygger-malning

then the above text is not there, I can't find it anymore. Why, and is there any way I can find the text and the rest of it on this website?

I use Google Chrome.

Hi Folks,

It seems some changes to my site have shocked the search engines:  www.recoveryaudio.org  Traffic today is down by probably 70%.

Last night a new Divi child theme was installed.  A few weeks ago I switched to a secure (https) server, and also added Clouldflare CDN as well as Ezoic, which is a CDN ad proxy server.

I have read that switching from http to https can affect SEO (and i suspect there could be an issue with internal linking), and I suspect the page HTML code has changed significantly as well.

I'm seeking some guidance to identify obvious problems, and/or possibly hiring someone for guidance or "fixing" whatever issues may be going on.

Thanks!!

copy that search into a browser
Google with videos larger than 20 minutes

I am looking for mob (like tony sprano tv show "the spranos" on hbo television) documentary about taxi drivers
Please dont completely edit search to

tony sprano taxi cab

to find tony sprano riding a taxi cab because this is an algorithm question

Tony sprano riding a taxi cab is an example to a correct answer but isnt the only correct answer to the question but please dont edit the answer too much


All the results are video games playing
People filming themselves playing xbox or playstation or nintendo

Seems like all the specific searches are something else.
So this is more of a big data question.

I usually just watch netflix.com because it is easier than something specific.
Most people just watch regular tv because tv is easy to turn on

this question is a puzzle and not looking for a link the meaning of + and - symbols
so if you have a better picture of google custom search terms that is not the answer.

Note: this question is not homework and is not a puzzle for a job interview -YET.…

I am using https://www.screamingfrog.co.uk/seo-spider/ to check the website SEO and to crawl the site, but I get a few errors even though webmaster tools show no errors!

I am using Cloud Flare, on the site, but I have put this into development mode until the below is resolved. All pages should be HTTPS which all are, but I get te below errors on a few pages using this software.

Crawler Errors:

1.      Error 301 http://www.alexjenkins.tech/ - This is redirecting to https, but it should show 200 code
2.      Error 301 http://www.alexjenkins.tech/contact - This is redirecting to https, but it should show 200 code
3.      I can still see the 500 error code from some of the blog pages as you will see if you run the above software, you might use a different software that might help you more, but the results are strange.

3. site can be a movie website or a news website.
4. site is having backlinks from 5-10 low-quality domain.

what is best tool to determine
many websites backlinks

website1: who links to me
website2: who links to me and what pages they link to

I am not just testing one website so I dont want to use google analytics

I also want to use one account to check many websites
for example I would like to know who links to microsoft.com even though I do not own microsoft.com

So I dont want a tool where it takes me many hours to authenticate my own website

There are a few dissimilar influences that will regulate how quickly or slowly results will derive. This list shows, but isn't limited to:
•      How much the content you created
•      The content must be unique
•      How your audience engage with the content
•      If you're a big or small site with strong or weak domain authority (D.A) and page authority (P.A)

I ran an SEO check on my site and realized that there are several posts that got indexed by Google that were generic, stock posts in the theme I used.  If I delete those posts from the WP admin panel, will they automatically get removed from Google Index or is there a more appropriate way to do that?

They are just irrelevant posts and I'm not sure whether Google would penalize my site realizing that there is generic stock content unrelated to the rest of my site.

https://www.google.com/#tbs=dur:m&tbm=vid&q=these+are+not+videos+-youtube.com


I took youtube.com out of search because youtube.com results are always videos

first result (for me)
FRONTLINE: teacher center: teacher guides by film: are we safer? | PBS
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/teach/are-we-safer/

there is no 12 minute 22 second video

large companies trick google AND ME that there is a video on the page

I am looking for videos longer than 4 minutes
youtube.com has a search where video is longer than 20 minutes (which is longer than 4 minutes) but too few results



1. How does company trick google? Or why does google think that a video is on that page?

2. How can I find MANY (few are longer than 20 minutes) videos longer than 4 minutes?

I was running some SEO tests on various websites that tell you where you have problems and one of them said my URL didn't have a / at the end and that this was a problem e.g.: mysite.com/about-us/

If this is true, why?

I heard Google only looks at title, h1, & h2 tags; of course no one knows for sure because Google doesn't allow those secrets out.  Once upon a time meta tags were used by crawlers (descriptions & word searches), however, I heard that is not the case anymore.  Do you know what is true and what isn't concerning this subject?  Does it pay to use meta tags for the search engines?

3) I need to be able to enter key search words in
4) I need to be able to see a graph comparing us against our competitors
