I am having 404 SOFT ERROR on my category pages that doesn't have any product.
The problem is that it eventually can have new products or even the old ones.

What is the best approach to solve this problem? ]]>

404 Page x 301 Redirect http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/404-page-x-301-redirect-494559.html Mon, 22 Jan 2018 12:55:30 GMT Hello!

I was deleting some pages from my e-commerce and then I thought about it.

Is it better to redirect the deleted page to one that stills exists or is better to show the 404 page instead?

I've read that redirecting a lot of pages can make the crawler confused... and here I am talking about 400 pages that I am removing.

Thanks. ]]>

How does Google judge on link profile? http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/how-does-google-judge-link-profile-494557.html Mon, 22 Jan 2018 11:53:53 GMT Hello guys,

Not to waste your time, I will go straight to the point.

I have a brand website, I'm trying to rank 5 pages in the same niche but for different products.

Most of the pages got picked up and some content pages ranked without any backlinks, just from social signals as I boosted one of the pages on facebook.

What I'm trying to say here is that my website looks healthy and all the signs are great, its 5 months old domain, so I don't want to miss things up.

I want to know how can I go with the anchor text when it comes to acquiring backlinks for each of the targeted pages? (if you are going to say, you are not supposed to acquire backlinks, please stop reading and thank you so much for your time)

I have some backlinks built already for my targeted pages, and the rankings are improving day after day.

Now I know that Google penalize websites based on their link profiles.

What is the link profile exactly?

Is there anything called page link profile ?

I mean, does Google judge on any website based on the link profile for the root domain or for the sub-pages?

what if the root domain was getting 99% branded anchors and some sub pages have 10% branded? which one will get penalized ? the whole website ? or just this specific page that has been over optimized?

Another Scenario (I won't personally do or apply this scenario, it's just for the sake to get the idea) :

Lets say I have 3 money pages in a brand website

www.brandname.com/product-1
www.brandname.com/product-2
www.brandname.com/product-3

Lets say I build 3 backlinsk, 1 link for each page, and each link is a partial match of my targeted keyword.

Now for each single page, the link profile is normal and natural, 1 backlink with partial match of the keyword, I think this won't hurt.
But for the main domain, it got 3 X "keyword rich anchors", even though they were for sub-pages.

What will happen in such a case? If I understand this point, I think my problem is solved.

I hope my question is clear.

if anyone can explain to me how can I plane my backlinks campaign for multiple money pages, it will be a huge support for me.

Thank you so much in advance. ]]>

This person took money from me and then did not touch my site. She admitted yesterday she had lost the password and needed it again to get in - caused a conflict and I am looking for her site on google for reviews to see if anyone else has had this issue with her services. I can find her site but I can't see anywhere on google as to leave or read a review??? I am confused. Is it possible she disabled her google places site due to receiving bad reviews? I just don't understnand why someone working in SEO wouldn't have it listed on google?

Anyhow, just seeing if there is a way to find and read other reviews. Thanks :) ]]>

I am wondering if it is better to name images in photoshop data or how to name my images. I have a friend who swears by images alone she is ranking because of how she names her images (which she wont share with me because she is local - I don't blame her) So I am on here to try to find the best and most effective way to name images or how many images should be shown per blog post. This same photographer has no blog - I have no idea wher her content is or why and how she is number one for so so many target keywords used in photography.

It is suggesting I add sub pages for keywords... thoughts on that? I think they took in 25 keywords.. seems like an awful lot but do I really need to make pages and content for these keywords? Do I need to put these pages on a menu?

How does google feel about you having pages that have relevant information on it but not on a menu.. I would assume these are "hidden" pages from what I have read... any suggestions? Ideas? Thank you in advance ]]>

I just don't understand the drop. I keep my content fresh by blogging ( I am a photographer) so blogging is really the only way to keep my content fresh - or am I wrong.
