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.

I have completed a 301 Redirect via cPanel using my affiliate link.  I have two questions.  

How to do I get my website ranked on Google?  I have added the website to Google Analytics.  One problem is that I was unable to verify it via Search Console.

And, the second question is how do I advertise since it is showing up as Spam to the Search Engines and Social Media websites?

Hi, we've had blog.magickitchen.com for a number of years. We'll be moving it to magickitchen.com/blog, for better SEO, and to have it on the same servers as the website.

I've transferred over about 60 or so articles to the new system.(new system isn't live yet, unfortunately you won't see it.)

I plan to do a permanent redirect of  blog.magickitchen.com to magickitchen.com/blog.

Is it worth taking each article I've transferred over and doing a permanent redirect on those? EG:
RedirectPermanent        /2016/09/02/seniors-fall-is-the-best-time-to-get-out-and-get-active/   https://www.magickitchen.com/blog/seniors-fall-is-the-best-time-to-get-out-and-get-active/57

Thanks!

Disallow: /politica-de-privacidade
Disallow: /comprar-zara-lisboa
Disallow: /melhores-saldos-2018-lisboa
Disallow: /temas/viagem

The big question is, the "Allow: /" should be at the top or bottom?

I recognise the SEO need to have good quality content and plenty of it for Google's on-page assessment.

Most of my online users access my site through their mobiles rather than PCs, laptops etc.

I have two questions arising:

!.  Given that on-page SEO is done on the laptop version how important is it to maintain ALL or the vast majority of the editorial content on the mobile version?

2.   Can I edit the editorial content on the mobile version down to the bare essentials so the mobile site is that much easier to navigate and work with on
the much more confined screen?

Of course serving Google is of absolute importance for rankings.

I would welcome views.   Thank you.

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.

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,

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,

Randal

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.- ΒΏIt 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"); ?>

this is make me crazy

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,

In my htaccess this is the line that redirect my SEO links with "industrias/" to an internal page in my site: RewriteRule ^industrias/([a-zA-Z0-9-/?=&]*)$ /oculto/industria.php?rID=$1 [L]

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
