We're just about to go live with our site re-design and we're on the same domain.

1) Should I put new sitemap in Google Search Console?

2) Should I tell google to re-crawl my website using Fetch As Google?


Answers will be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks ! ]]>

Poor internal linking? http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/poor-internal-linking-494034.html Wed, 13 Dec 2017 06:03:15 GMT Hi guys, Analyzing a large e-commerce site 10,000 pages on Magento and not getting much organic traffic to level 3 sub-category pages, the URLs are like: Primary Keyword Target: BODY MOISTURISERS https://www.adorebeauty.com.au/skin-care/bath-body/moisturisers.html Primary Keyword... Hi guys,

Analyzing a large e-commerce site 10,000 pages on Magento and not getting much organic traffic to level 3 sub-category pages, the URLs are like:

Primary Keyword Target: BODY MOISTURISERS

https://www.adorebeauty.com.au/skin-...sturisers.html

Primary Keyword Target: LIP MASKS

https://www.adorebeauty.com.au/skin-...lip-masks.html

Plus another 40 other URLs at level 3 with low organic performance.

Authority of the domain is strong, so it's not an authority issue I believe its internal linking.

Besides linking form the blog and breadcrumbs is there anything we can do to improve internal linking to these level 3 pages?

Cheers. ]]>

To schema or not to schema? http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/schema-not-schema-494030.html Tue, 12 Dec 2017 19:03:07 GMT My instinct is if you can, and you think it's relevant, then add schema markup. However, I find the feedback and approaches from people in the same industry can differ.

Take this directory website: https://goo.gl/F7h6pz
It's a restaurant/venue website for a specific type of dining.

It has regional pages with 15 listings marked up with restaurant schema, including the deals. For example: https://goo.gl/gC3PxL
The same listings marked up with restaurant schema can also be found under different categories: https://goo.gl/tsrVXk
Individual venue pages have a more in-depth schema markup.

Do you think this is correct?


According to: https://developers.google.com/search...ents-on-a-page
Google says:

Don't mark up a page that describes "10 best ideas for cooking turkey," with links out to each recipe.

Don't mark up a page that lists all engineering jobs in Mountain View, CA, with links to individual job pages.



Another website in a similar category uses schema differently, labels an item list with 20 localbusiness types within the list.

Do you think this is a better approach? ]]>

Duplicate website pages indexed: Ranking dropped. Does Google checks the duplicate do http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/duplicate-website-pages-indexed-ranking-dropped-does-google-checks-duplicate-do-494008.html Mon, 11 Dec 2017 06:31:17 GMT Hi all,

Our duplicate website which is used for testing new optimisations got indexed and we dropped in rankings. But I am not sure whether this is exact reason as it happened earlier too where I don't find much drop in rankings. Also I got replies in the past that it'll not really impact original website but duplicate website. I think this rule applies to the third party websites. But if our own domain has exact duplicate content; will Google knows that we own the website from any other way we are associated like IP addresses and servers, etc..to find the duplicate website is hosted by us? I wonder how Google treats duplicate content from third party domains and own domains.

Thanks ]]>

I have a page listing youtube videos of the local attractions for the customers who visit my business. (I give them a courtesy car while I work on their vehicle).

At the moment it is a list of links. Should I embed the videos instead of just a list of links? Which will give me the most juice? The videos might be interesting to people besides my customers. What about a page for each video, maybe with a paragraph or two about the attraction in question? Or is that getting a bit ridiculous?

Click on the white button at the top of the page to go to the video page (I know, the meta stuff is pitiful!): 'before-n-after.co.uk/day_out1.htm' ]]>

is that when we are using websites like answer the public or ubersuggest most of the
times when we input our keyword, it shows a number of questions or long tail keywords that actually
are not being searched in that particular combination. I wanted to clarify that should the long tail
keyword itself be in the google searches or is it just a way to make the head keyword more specific
and rank the head keyword through just making it longer ]]>

Is Google banning certain words? http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/google-banning-certain-words-493989.html Sat, 09 Dec 2017 20:41:18 GMT

Is google blocking words from search results?
I optimized a page for the keyword "gun laws by state" which a month ago was getting thousands of searches. However now if I go into Google adwords I get 0 searches. Other keyword tools return the same results. I think it has to do with the word GUN as they dont want any advertising with words relating to weapons. This is bit of a worry as my web site is called Guns To Carry so will I get an SEO hit due to the name? and should I change the URL of the page Gun Laws By State ? ]]>
