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.

4.      I don’t know where this is coming from at all https://www.alexjenkins.tech/blog/wwww.alexjenkins.tech again showing in the software

Any advance would be welcome.

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

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?

What is the best SEO Web Analytics tool/program for analyzing your company's website compared to your competitors? I have spent the entire day today trying out various ones. What I need is:
1) It needs to show the visibility of our company compared to competitors we are able to enter (up to 5)
2) It needs to show variance (e.g. Jan-present)
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
5) I would also love to have Visits, Page views, Bounce Rate

Kindest Regards,

I got one requirement which not allowed to use Google Analytics for web tracking analysis. Instead, my client wishes to have an CMS which keep track of some web traffic data, such as bounce rate, etc.

My question is how do I track the bounce rate in my database? What information should I save into database?

I need some insights so that I can understand it, thank you.

I'm using Magento, and some of the plugins have styles built into the PHP (drawn from configuration) but its having the result of emitting <style> elements in the middle of the document, albeit well-formed.
These are failing the WC3 validator with :
document type does not allow element "style" here
Is this going to affect SEO in anyway?

Morning All,

In an attempt to make my homepage rank for the keyword "AA Speakers", almost every post on my website contains a link back to my homepage with "AA Speakers".  Totally duplicated content, I understand, but if you look at an example post (of which i have over 6000), you can see that the content is really the recording and whatever comments visitors make (e.g., http://www.recoveryaudio.org/aa-speaker-tapes/tom-i-steps-12-primm-nv-2007-12-07.

Would a few thousand instances of posts linking the focus keyword back to my homepage be considered spammy?

By the way, I might be interested in hiring someone in helping me make modifications to the site in order to capture the #1 ranking for AA Speakers (currently #3).  It already holds over 150 #1 keyword rankings, but I can't seem to get the most valuable keyword above #3 (and this site is far superior to #1 & 2 in terms of usability and content)

I have a page that had a reference to "Adira glanz" on it. I removed this as well as an associated PDF file. THen I went into Google WEbmaster Tools and temporarily removed the page.

A month later the page is back in the index - even though the content is non-existent.

How can I permanently remove a reference in the google index if the page no longer exists?

page is http://ahavasshalom.org/shabbos-newsletter-parshas-ki-savo-5774/
the website is WordPress and I have full control over it.

I already removed it from BING

Thank you.

Hi, I thought I was doing this correctly, but I'm seeing no results in Google Analytics.

I have a Trustpilot review widget on my home page. I want to know if people are clicking on it. My understanding is, you create the trigger to fire when someone clicks on the element with class .trust-pilot, then you add an event that contains that trigger.

This is what I created in Google Tag Manager:

trigger
tag configuration
Hopefully that's enough information for someone to advise me. Let me know if you need more. Thanks. (I do have google tag manager set up on the home page, magickitchen dot com. ).

In a Joomla module I am trying to not show some Adsense ads when the screen resolution is below 350px.  Here is the code I have tried:

<style type="text/css">
.responsive_right_1 { display:inline-block; width: 320px; height: 100px; }
@media (max-width: 350px) { .responsive_right_1  { display: none; } }
@media (min-width: 500px) { .responsive_right_1  { width: 320px; height: 100px; } }
@media (min-width: 900px) { .responsive_right_1  { width: 336px; height: 280px; } }
</style>
<script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script>
<!-- responsive_right_1 -->
<ins class="adsbygoogle responsive_right_1"
     style="display:inline-block"
     data-ad-client="ca-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
     data-ad-slot="xxxxxxxxxxx"
     data-ad-format="auto"></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>

Open in new window


However, the ads still appear when the screen resolution is set to 350px or lower.

We have a web service which is https only. The web server allows port http connections but forwards them to https since there are no http urls in the database for the site.

I've noticed in the logs that when connections are made to http, they are getting a 301 and being redirected to https.
Is this a problem in terms of configuration and in terms of SEO?

Can anyone explain how come this happened - I just wired up a Magento shop with a large-ish inventory (8k products) , I've done no attempts at link building, and suddenly after being live for just a day, if I type the full name of one of the products into Bing, the site/link comes on page one.

My mystery is that the product 3 levels down in the menu hierarchy before being listed, how can bing have found it?
