Guys, I have little problem with Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS,
when I'm combining and minifying Js and CSS files I'm getting a problem with another
plugin in my site which locating the country flag in a forum otherwise I can't delete it as it's
very important to my business as I have CRM and I need to know the nationality of the customers.
I'm using WP-Rocket premium plugin for caching and do all the combining and minifying job.

Does anyone know how to solve this without deleting the flagging plugin? ]]>

Is it necessary for google SEO to have information on the menu tabs for newsite.proviolin.com? I don't want to get penalized by google for not having information on this menu tab. I notice competitors like macphail.org does not have information on their menu tabs such as the menu tab, "events."

In other words, is a page of my website that which comes up under the navigation bar?

Our website has a resources section, within which sites some categories (blogs, guides, news etc).

These categories change dynamically through JS, and as the categories dynamically change so do the blogs.

When I turn off Javascript, I can only click on the categories and no blogs show up because it looks like they are linked to from JS.

SEM Rush as a result has flagged the blogs up as orphaned pages (I'm guessing the audit tool can't pick up the JS).

This worried me because now I'm thinking Google can't find this content. I've manually checked the blogs in Google (site: URL search), and they are being indexed because the blogs and guides sit within our XML sitemap..
I've also checked with Screaming Frog and these blogs aren't appearing in the blocked resources section. So everything looks fine.

I just wanted to get some opinions on this, as I know Google is much better at crawling JS now, but is there another more efficient way I can be investigating this?


I'm aware the orphaned page issue is potentially going to impact backlink value etc at the moment.

Thanks in advance :-)

I have an e-commerce and I am facing the following situation:

My Category Page for products from the Brand X is empty because every product from this Brand was sold. Now my page is only with its side filters and a small description about the Brand.

On my Search Console, Google is reporting that this page is with a Soft 404 Error.

Reading more about this label I've found that it is just a "Google thing" for a Code Error problem and it can be because my page is empty without products and thin content.

I do not want to redirect this page because it is well ranked for the Brand's name and soon (maybe 1 or 2 months) it will be filled again with a lot of products.

What is the best approach to this situation? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance. ]]>

Sold domain - redirects query http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/sold-domain-redirects-query-494925.html Wed, 14 Feb 2018 11:14:16 GMT Hi, this is hopefully a simple answer,

We've sold our domain (.com) and acquired a new one (.co.uk).

Now, usual practice changing domains is to 301 redirect the pages, right?

In this case though, the .com domain is going to be used by another company, so redirecting the home page for example would impact them - is that right? Or would servers start coming into this conversation as well? I.e. if .com is on another server does that change things?

Just looking to see if I've understood this potential problem correctly.

I have two problems on my site.
1- I have 5 pages in my blog in every language and it gives me duplicate page title for every blog page.
How could I solve that, please ?

2- I have installed SSL certificate and it gives me duplicate content for my home page in HTTP and HTTPS.
I tried to redirect 301 from HTTP to HTTPS but didn't work with YOAST as per "it's the same page"
Also, I have HTTPS redirect in my .htaccess file. What should I do?

301 Redirect to Home Page or Sub-Page? http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/301-redirect-home-page-sub-page-494914.html Wed, 14 Feb 2018 05:21:07 GMT Hi guys,

I hope I can get some opinions and thoughts on what I'm trying to do with my website.

I purchased new domain name 6 months ago, created a blog, added quality content and started acquiring backlinks.

The website starts ranking for many competitive keywords and its climbing day after day. Now I get around 17K page views a month.

Now, during this time I was always looking for an old domain with clean link profile to 301 redirect to my new domain, to boost my domain authority. Recently I found a great domain with great backlink profile, everything with this domain is just great, backlinks from many trusted sources, anchor text ratio is great, most backlinks are brand name anchor, I also installed google search console, there are no warnings or manual actions applied to the website. I bought this domain for $1500 directly from the owner.

My question is:

I have built many branded backlinks to my new domain, they cost me a fortune as I was only getting quality contextual backlinks from real websites. NO PBNs.

The old domain that I purchased is also branded and shows up in google when you type the brand name.

Now I want to keep using my own brand that I started with, so I'm worried if I do 301 redirect, my brand will eventually disappear as the old domain I'm redirecting has way more backlinks and authority.

So I was thinking instead of redirecting the old domain to the home page, why not redirect it to a sub page of my new website, and from there I can implement some internal linking to distribute the authority, and that way my brand doesn't get affected, and if there was anything wrong with the site, it will only hurt the sub-page not the whole website.

What do you think about the way I'm doing it?

Do you think its better to redirect the old domain directly to the home page?

How would you go around it? to keep my original brand name and get all the authority from the old expired domain.

Let me know your thoughts please.

Thank you so much in advance. ]]>
