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.

Why WordPress For Blogging ?

Well established site.  Online for at least 10 years.

Many thousands of pages indexed highly in Google for key search terms

Never used sitemap.

What evidence is there for and against submitting an Sitemap?  The negative I have seen is that pages and places missed in site map, even well-linked ones, get cut out --> negative overall SEO impact.

What proof is there either way?

Thanks,

OT

Has anyone had any success challenging a Google Review (on G. Places/G.Maps) that is fake, and having it removed?
(I have a new client that has 2 reviews, from 2 different "people". The reviews are identical, one is from someone in Pennsylvania & the other is in Indiana. And my client runs a local business in California, a Doctors Office. Fairly obvious both reviews are fake).  

Along the same lines, if that fails, are there other options, like:
- Adding a comment from the Owner
- Ditching that Google Places account and start over fresh?

I am in Google Search console looking at statistics for my property. I would like to see where the queries come from but I don't see how. Google does say "See how your search traffic changes over time, where it's coming from, and what search queries are most likely to show your site".  It is important to me to know where the searches are coming from. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I need help figuring out why after several years, suddenly my site:

http://achesawaytoronto.ca

dropped from page 1 to like page 20 in local search for keywords 'massage Toronto'. I'm still showing top 3 in maps. Even some sub pages are ranking higher than my main page.

I've also ranked highly for Osteopathy Toronto, Acupuncture Toronto, posture Toronto and have dropped dramatically for all of those.

It is fairly obvious that I'm being penalized (no manual penalty) but I have no clue why.

Actions I think might be related.

1: I installed yoast seo and submitted a sitemap after several years
2: I had a newly added link on my page pointing to a site that Google suddenly ranked as a spam site (now removed)
3: I expanded recently and added a bunch of new pages to my site.

Thank you,
Faz

I'm planning to register a domain extension for educational start up. But our brand name is not available with popular extension such as (.com, .org).
And most of the startups are using .co & .io extension for their business.

As per my understanding .CO stands for Colombia & .IO stands for British Indian Ocean Territory. If i register my website with any one of this & targeting people who living in Australia, Can i rank the website for local keywords?

Please advice

My site formally used a URL rewrite component called LinkFreeze to change the URL's to "SEO friendly URLs".
EX: 'www.mysite.com/category.asp?cat=3&subcat=2'  would be changed to  'www.mysite.com/category~3~subcat~2.asp'

Moving forward to 2018... I'm unable to use this component anymore so there are thousands of orphan URL's out there.  I wrote a simple script for a custom 404 page that redirects the URL to the correct (original) format of 'www.mysite.com/category.asp?cat=3&subcat=2'.  This works, but I was hoping there was a way to do a 301 redirect using URL Rewrite.  I'm open to any suggestions.

During this time, I promote my post to various social media platform like Facebook, Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, etc. After 7 days, I republish my same post with a different title in medium.com, storify.com, linkedin.com. Does it hurt my SEO by creating duplicate content to other sites?

Hi,  truenasreseller dot com is the site, it's running the latest wordpress. I've got the leverage browser caching plugin installed, and htaccess shows it's there, see attached. But gtmetrix.com shows that browser caching is not enabled, they are still giving an F and a 0 rating. Why would that be so?

I'm hosted on Bluehost, with whom I'm very unhappy, but for the time being I want to get this grade up so that I can show them the issue is on their end. Thanks!

Hi,

We are a small software company. Can anyone recommend a good software submission service that can submit our software products to various download sites? In the past, we use the services from submit-everywhere and appvisor. However, recently we find their services are not as good as before, so we are looking for another better choice. Can anyone recommend a good one?

Thanks

I would like to have our website on top of Google/Bing/Yahoo search or searchable when type the search keyword in search browser.

Anyone can propose any idea? I found few method which is:
1. Google Adword - But we need to know the price as the Adword is charge by per click and average how long will it takes to allow the ads too appear.
2. Meta - I've done the changes but it doesn't seems to appear yet probably due to low search rank or anything related.
Everyone are welcome to provide any answer which related and could help to provide better solution for this.

Thanks for your help
