The trick is that it is giving different results than the first one. A site that is optimized and in "green" with Google Page Insight is marked as totally problematic with new tool
Any ideas? ]]>

Before I start another thread just want to say big thank you to all the people who give advices, tips and answer all my questions. Thanks again, I am hoping I will contribute to this forum too.


So I lost this google ranking to be honest. Well...I have been actually loosing it since March 2018 but the current drop reminds of a free fall without end. I thought that might be due to migration
from HTTP to HTTPS (I have gone through lots of threads on this) and Google would restore most of the ranking along with traffic but this hasn't happened since 3 months now. Unfortunately I am not being tech savvy and my SEO/WP building
skills are very limited. I have got one SEO expert (well..I thought she was an expert) but things aren't looking good thus far as a good chunk of my keywords aren't even in top 50. I cross-checked the
SSL certificate installation and it seems to be working fine (301 redirect is in place).

So here I am..asking for an advise again and any kind of help will be much appreaciated. If moderator allows I can drop a link to my website - bestpennystocks2017.com

Thanks again,

After that, I tried to make the site follow silo structure and all, but nothing is helping, though traffic is still the same.
Should I restore the site back to that day when I made the changes? ]]>

We have intentionally blocked some of the website files which were indexed for years. Now we receive a message "Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt" in GSC. We can ignore as per my knowledge? Are any actions required about this? We thought of blocking them with meta tags but these are PDF files.

virtual page views are not playing nice with goal funnels http://forums.seochat.com/analytics-analysis-76/virtual-page-views-not-playing-nice-goal-funnels-497304.html Mon, 13 Aug 2018 02:44:12 GMT I've been stuck on this on and off for a week and tried a number of things, so haaalp

Basically, because i'm using an SPA I have to trigger virtual pageviews via data layer to gtm for each step in the step UI i'm trying to track
for a conversion funnel. The virtual pageviews work find in terms of all of the standard reports and all testing with tag assistant and
GTM preview mode check outs BUT I can get the goals to record with virtual page views. I've set up events, so I at least have goal
tracking but as you guys may know, with event based goals, you can't use funnels.

Anyone have an idea on what the issue may be here?
The only thing i'm thinking is that for goal, passing just the page URI (e.g.: virtual/some-page)
and the page title (page title) may not be enough...maybe something is missing, maybe I need hostname or something for
goals to work??

I'm open to trying anything, just need to be pointed in a direction.... ]]>

Iím auditing an e-commerce website but Iím having really difficult time figuring out why Googlebot canít render the pages correctly. When I check the cache of the pages i see that googlebot couldnít render much of the content.

A url for instance:giamor.com/kadin-deri-ceket-35


I have an opinion about what might be the issue but Iím not sure:
The url has escaped fragment version (in this case the ugly url is https://www.giamor.com/kadin-deri-ce...ed_fragment_=& ) but googlebot doesnít request it because original url doesnít contain a #! hash fragment or meta tag
Code:

<meta name="fragment" content="!">
Or maybe it might be due to robots.txt has a line which disallows /Handlers/ (I donít know what it is).


I would really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance. ]]>

Schema Optimization http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/schema-optimization-497288.html Fri, 10 Aug 2018 13:33:34 GMT I am attempting to optimize my schema data. Just a couple of days ago I added the schema data to only my index page, so I still do not have any structured data appearing in search console. Currently, I have some simple JSON-LD schema implemented. See below:

Code:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "Organization",
  "url": "https://mbkit.com",
  "name": "MB Kit Systems",
  "description": "MB Kit Systems uses its high-quality T-slot extruded aluminum framing to design and assemble linear motion systems, machine guarding, machinery and other structures.",
  "logo": "https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/mbkitsystems/mbkLogo.png",
  "contactPoint": {
    "@type": "ContactPoint",
    "telephone": "+1-888-729-4500",
    "contactType": "Customer service"
  }
}
</script>

I chose this option because on Google's "Introduction to Structured Data" page they have it listed as the recommended type.

What I am wondering is what else I should or can put in the schema. I cannot find options for this anywhere.

In addition, does anyone think I should add microdata as well and let the two work in tangent?

I contacted the plugin's author and he said that there is some
optimizer plugin on my Wordpress site injecting defer onlaod = " " into the AMP scripts.
Autoptimize, Smush, WP Fastest Cache, and All-in-One SEO; these are my website optimizing plugins.
Someone told me that Autoptimize is not the cause of the issue. Which one of the 3 could it be then?
Could there be a cause other than that?
