Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

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.

Hi, I checked this page in Google's new url tool:
https://www  dot magickitchen.com/meal-delivery/

It says:  Indexed, not submitted in sitemap. But I checked the sitemap section, and it's using the one I submitted, in the root, sitemap.xml.
And if you go to that sitemap and search the URL, it's there.

Can anyone explain that to me? WHy would it say not submitted in sitemap when it's clearly there and has been since March? Thanks.

I have inherited a WrdPress web site that uses Yoast SEO.

I am unable (so far) to figure out how to add key words & phrases to increase our visibility to people looking for us, but not knowing us by name.

Is there full docs available on-line that covers this?

Thanks

I am having a hard time creating a site map with https://www.gopherstateevents.com/  Could it be because I have several pages (including the home page) that were made with Mobirise and the rest are classic asp pages?  I've tried several online xml site map creators and none seem to be working for me.

Hello!

We have an intranet that's behind a username/password page and one of our biggest struggles is search. We've implemented a basic search tool and it does okay at best. If searching for the word book, it'll return pages with the word book in it. However, it runs into issues when using multiple words, quotations, and does not rank the results for the user. Our intranet is using php and CodeIgniter. I looked around at codecanyon.net for php search engine scripts, but nothing really stuck out to me. Does an expert have a suggestion on what a good search solution might be for an intranet?

Upgrade your Question Security!

Your question, your audience. Choose who sees your identity—and your question—with question security.

I work as a translator, and sometimes a project contains a lot of difficult terms so I have to lookup each and every term in the documents. But when even Google searches don't render any results or only a few pages, it's really difficult to find a translation for such terms. Almost always in these cases, it's a technical handbok for some kind of machinery. Today I translate several handbooks for crushers, feeders and screens (cone crusher, jaw crusher, huck bolted inclined screen, scalping screen and a vibrating grizzly feeder).

So I was thinking of this solution, if it's viable:

I have a list of these difficult terms that don't give any search results on my national Google.se (advanced search settings: display results in my language Swedish) and can't find anything in my technical electronic dictionaries either. The best now would be if I could find other documents (pdfs, word documents etc.) and also websites in a selection of languages (I am proficient in German, Spanish, Italian, French, Norwegian and Danish) for these terms in this list by doing a deep web search.

Also, if I could find exhaustive definition context for these terms on English websites and in documents in English. The best is of course a comprehensive technical dictionary, but the one I found, McGraw-Hill Multimedia Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, seems to be out of stock everywhere.

But perhaps the most effective way would be to search for the hyperonym of all these terms in my term …

Hi there,
Is there a way/tool/ search engine that would allow me to search for multiple variations of the same phrase at the same time?
For example, I want to search for "revealing his true belief". But I also want to search for all the phrases that have the same or similar meaning like"betraying their real opinion".
The total number of words here is 8 but there are many different ways to combine the words so there are many different potential alternative phrases: "revealing his true opinion" "revealing his real opinion" "betraying our real opinion" etc….
Is there a way to accomplish this in two conditions?
1- I determine the alternatives. So I specify that for "word 1 word 2 word 3 word4", the alternatives for word 1 are: Only revealing or showing.
2- Use all the possible synonyms or even antonyms for "revealing" in word 1.
The tips I got so far from Reddit
"
Word2Vec or Doc2Vec is something that can be used for this, depending on whether you just wish to substitute synonyms or match the distributional semantics of arbitrary phrases.

---
If you don’t know your alternatives (e.g., you don’t know that revealing is similar to showing), then you need something than can do synonyms. Most search engines (e.g., Google) can do this, as can some natural language processing programs.

If you do know the alternatives, you can describe your pattern to a search engine or most computer programs using regular expressions. A regex that would match your example would be …

Hi,

Need examples of best basic JSON-LD schema information for website homepage.  What looks good?  Just dipping my toe into the JSON water.  Getting penalized by Google a bit now.  Want just to cover the basics.  Will customize once I know more.  Just enough to pass the bar, as it were.

Need a few homepage examples - site I could see, please.  Sites with a few pages / sections to them.

For what its worth, in looking around and getting more confused, here's what I've seen.  These are obviously huge sites.  Looked at them for proper structure.  Hoping to find a short set of must haves from you friends and on a site that codes them well to get me out of the gate.

I am moving a site to WooCommerce which uses different url's that my old Prestashop site.  I have found that the old url's are going to the home  page instead of showing a 404.  I need to remove whatever is going to the home page.  This is because I want to run xml-sitemaps.com to find the broken links.  However, they aren't showing up because they are going to the home page automatically.

This is the .htaccess in the public directory where wordpress resides

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

Open in new window


Please tell me how to get these old links to show a 404.

Thanks,

I got some questions about SEO friendly url's

1.-I was wondering if it is possible to use a SEO friendly url's to download a file, I mean usually to download a file most of us use url's like "http://www.grupossc.com/pdf/something.pdf", but I would like to know if it is posible to add a "rewriterule" in my .htaccess to use a SEO friendly url like "http://www.grupossc.com/downloads/something" to download the pdf file localted in the folder "pdf" and hide the real path of the file.

2.- ¿It is possible to use SEO url's with php includes?
In my code i got code like <?php include ("assets/principal.php"); ?>, but I wanna know if it is possible to add a "rewriterule" in my .htaccess to use a SEO friendly url to use includes like <?php include ("http://www.grupossc.com/myseourl/myphpfile"); ?>

check this link: http://www.gruposc.com/industrias/Aeroespacial-Defensa

I dont know why when you enter to any of my SEO links with "industrias/" you will redirected to "www.sancayetano.es" for example: http://www.sancayetano.es/industrias/Aeroespacial-Defensa

As far I do remeber I never add any redirection to that server,

Please help

Best regards.

15+ years ago we ran Webposition Gold software with a list of 100+ keywords that automatically reported results from all the engines like the below so you could easily see how your ranking was trending, but Webposition Gold was blocked (http://www.aimclearblog.com/2007/06/11/google-makes-it-official-webposition-gold-is-dead/) since Google/etc wanted to start selling their own Analytic Reporting services

What software do you recommend now so I can find out what rank each one of my 100+ keywords currently have like the attached shows ?

I am OK with using Google Analytics/etc if that will work

Need to get our website to resolve to our secure pages.

Seems like the best way, in terms of SEO, is via a 301 redirect.

Would this code be a 301 redirect?

if($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO']=="http"){
header('Location:https://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
exit;
}

Open in new window


Or, will this be looked at as, not only NOT 301, but somehow seemingly the WRONG way to achieve our goal and result in a SEO penalty?

Many thanks!
