I rank a couple of places higher for search term Harmony Necklaces than Harmony Necklace which is the key target because it has double the searches - does the fact that my Categories use the plural 'necklaces', e.g. category = Full Range of Harmony Necklaces. this is reflected in the url's, domain/category/product title.

Or would it be better to rename the category to 'Harmony Necklace - Full Range' ?? and so on for the other categories.

Would Google prefer a 301 or iframe when I redo my site? http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/would-google-prefer-301-iframe-when-i-redo-my-site-500146.html Fri, 19 Apr 2019 20:17:25 GMT Hi All -

We are moving from a static html/css/js site to a CMS site.

We currently have a couple of hundred how-to guides located at suredone.com/guides/name-of-guide (you can see them by visiting www.suredone.com/guides). They are actually a bit ancient and we've moved all of them to Freshdesk but never redirected individual guides from www.suredone.com - we just repointed the menu item for guides to support.suredone.com on Freshdesk. As a result, these guides (at www.suredone.com) are still indexed on Google and actually for a lot of longtail phrases.

So now that we're moving to a CMS we're trying to figure out the best approach to these pages so we don't decimate our rankings. We REALLY don't want to recreate these old pages. There's no awesome way to suck the content from Freshdesk and create pages on the CMS since that would also require some big maintenance aspect as these pages are updated regularly.

So.. do we 301 the old guide pages from www.suredone.com/guides/name-of-guide to support.suredone.com/support/solutions/articles/1000221852-some-guide-name-thats-different, or do we create pages in the CMS for each of these older guides and then iframe the freshdesk pages into them so at least the content for those specific pages is current if someone trips onto them?

Other ideas are welcome!

Thanks!

Hi Folks- I have a website that was designed and is hosted by the SEO company I hired years ago. They
have gotten really good results for me but unfortunately over that amount of time I have no real biz relationship
with them which is why I need your help with this question.

I have a new website on squarespace that I am close to launching and my SEO providers are telling me it will cost more
in SEO dollars to rank that site because they are saying squarespace is harder to rank than their customized
cms sites.

My challenge is two things. One I am not a fan of their design and the second being I am not sure if that is true.

Would anyone in the community know if SEO is harder to achieve with square-space over a cms site?

Really appreciate any feedback or advice:) ]]>

I read on seo-hacker.com that 302 redirects don't pass link juice to your website and it hurt your SEO.

So is it true?

We have launched the exit intent pop-ups on our website where a pop-up will appear when the visitor is about to leave the website. This will trigger when the mouse is moved to the top window section; as an attempt by the visitor to close the window. We see a slight ranking drop post this pop-up launch. As the pop-up is appearing just before someone leaves the website; does this making Google to see as if the user left because of the pop-up and penalizing us? What is your thoughts and suggestions on this?

HREFLANG and different GSC property for every language http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/hreflang-different-gsc-property-every-language-500106.html Tue, 16 Apr 2019 08:18:36 GMT According to this article https://www.searchviu.com/en/hreflan...ntation-guide/,
it's suggested to create a Google Search Console property for every language or country version of your website.

So, this means different properties for every /de/, /fr/ etc subdirectory

I wonder how this is going to affect the previous history of our website.
Suddenly all our Impressions and Clicks will be split among different properties, which complicates things.

Do you really think that there are more benefits of doing this that worth the trouble? ]]>

From what I see after clinking in, it is just a trashy website in German that has loads of images for visitors to download for free (maybe not even royalty free).

Is this a stealth website that SEO companies made for themselves to get the SEO work done?

A YouTuber suggested that we do a search on Google on the competitor that ranks on the 1st position on SERP with the competitor's URL, then we shall
go down the list to see how we can get our backlink on the same websites. Is this the correct way to do off page SEO? ]]>

There is a glitch that even though our page has the 2nd most followers and the most engagement in the local area, our page is still not appearing on 1st, 2nd, nor 3rd page of Google's search results.

My facebook page is fairly optimized, we post interesting and category related information consistently, run Facebook ads regularly, and even talked to a Facebook representative one on one to try to have
this problem resolve with no luck.

It is very frustrating watching our competitor ranking on the 1st and 2nd position on Google search results for the keyword that will bring us tons of business.

Our facebook page name is Max Love Cat & Pet Sitting

Can someone please take a look and tell us what we have done wrong? ]]>

https://search.google.com/u/0/search...GTXWdy01IIgGcg

Here you can here. When I checked this on webmaster then I found that many of URL's are fetching with the home page. But the URLs those are fectching mostly are "ajaxforAll" URL's and crawlers are taking by buttons as a URLs i.e Buy Button, Add to cards button, delete button.

These are not Urls, these are buttons those run with scrips. Then why webmaster are reading these buttons as URL's?

Kindly help. My website's home page is not indexing and giving soft 404 status. This is harming my brand value worst.
