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.

Is there a repository or anything like that of old versions of your website?  Indexed pages with old content?  Is there a way to "Purge" the internet of any old versions of webpages?  Meaning, there some old pages from my website that are indexed that I have changed and or deleted that still come up for some reason.  Thanks in advance,.

Hi
The last time I received Adsense approval, I invited a lot of people interested in my blog topic to post, to get Adsense approval.
Is this the only way?

Is Google only interested in constant visits, traffic, not blog posts?
Thanks

Hi
These are the Adsense approval bullet points. below
One seems to be that I must use the original URL that I used when I set up my account. I don't do that site anymore, but all my sites exist under a main URL for my account in godaddy.  How do I know which site that it wants, or correct it for it to work? what does it expect? Might it be relative to my umbrella URL for my godaddy account?

i) Copy the code exactly as it appears on your AdSense homepage.
ii) Place the code on the URL that you provided when you created your AdSense account.
iii) Make sure that you place the code on a page that has content and receives regular visitors.

If I just build a web page and publish it won't the Google bot see it and come index it?  Is there any need to set up a Google Search Console account?

The company I work for are considering becoming affiliated with another company in the same sector, principally to drive extra traffic to our site. However, in recent weeks we have noticed that the other site has been dropping in the search rankings for our main keyword. They have gone from being firmly established on page 1 to page 4 and page 5.

For the same keyword our site is on page 2. If the planned affiliation goes ahead then customers visiting the other site will start to be re-directed to our site to complete a transaction and so my question is, will becoming affiliated with a site that has recently taken a hit in the SERPs have a negative effect on our ranking? Would Google see a relationship between the 2 companies and penalise us by association?

I searched Google.co.uk using these search terms:  front-runners back-runners "harnes racing"

https://www.google.co.uk/search?site=&source=hp&q=front-runners+back-runners+%22harnes+racing%22&oq=front-runners+back-runners+%22harnes+racing%22&gs_l=hp.3...551.8948.0.9136.44.42.1.0.0.0.142.3315.27j10.37.0....0...1.1.64.hp..6.30.2674...0j0i30k1j0i10k1j0i10i30k1j0i22i30k1j0i22i10i30k1j33i160k1j33i21k1.RjTmuOZHids

Then, I found an interesting website (number 3 on the first page of Google.co.uk) as one of the search hits:

https://books.google.co.uk/books?isbn=1105613534

On the Google.co.uk search hits page, there is this text for this number 3 website:

the possible front runners racing style

So I want to read more about that, but when opening the number 3 website this text is not there. Why, and how should I get to it?

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!!

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 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,
Tina
