We currently have a separate mobile site to our desktop site which is terrible. It looks nothing like the desktop site and has a lot less content. We are planning to launch a new website that has a responsive mobile site but the launch keeps getting delayed and is now not going to happen for a few more months.

Do you think I need to worry about the mobile first index? So far this hasn't affected us but is it likely to start affecting us soon?

54 backlinks in 24 hours. Please help me out. http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/54-backlinks-24-hours-please-help-me-out-498827.html Tue, 18 Dec 2018 15:33:44 GMT So I got up this morning and hopped on my google search console, and somehow in 24 hours I
went from 1 backlink to 54. I am concerned, because some of the links came from weird sources
like en.upost.info which I don't even know what the heck it is, and it doesn't seem to be
related to my sites content in any way (the site I'm working on is creditscoremaestro.com).
The reason I'm concerned is because I know that google can scan backlinks and deem the
linking site to be unrelated to my own, and penalize me. Some of the links are legit, which I
got from doing HARO interviews. However, many of them are just weird. Some are from really
big sites like thedailybeast.com.

A big concern is that some of the links come from sites that don't even exist, like
pennystockemailalerts.com


EDIT: Inside google search console Links tab, I just realized that all of these sites that were
added last night point to a different target url, and 50% of them point to some government
site, and the other 50% point to another site.
I'm lost...

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? Thanks. ]]>

Google just won't pick it up fast enough. By the time google indexes it, the topic is already outdated. Especially in the smaller subcommunities, it can take 1-2 weeks before Google indexes a link.

How do you let Google know that a website updates often? ]]>

In India, for a popular keyword 'matrimonial', this sitemap page (https://www.shaadi.com/sitemap) is ranking in 2nd position for long time. Good number of competition is there but how these sitemap is ranking? because these page links to lot of another pages with anchor text éxample matrimonial' ?

If a page has a good number of anchor links which points to internal pages, does it increases the source page's chances of ranking for that specific keyword?

Having anchor links texts like 'bengali matrimonial', 'gujarati matrimonial', etc increased the ranking of 'matrimonial' for the sitemap page?

Otherwise, how the ranking could have been happened? ]]>

Deleted Parent Category But Still Serving (w 404) http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/deleted-parent-category-but-still-serving-w-404-a-498777.html Fri, 14 Dec 2018 03:06:31 GMT Hi, can somebody help me out please...

I had this structure /new-cars/car-reviews and /new-cars/auto-news

And wished to remove the 'new cars' parent category so I simply deleted the category, hoping to return /car-reviews and /auto-news
parent categories, along with all child categories (/auto-news/ford, etc.)

Problem is, I am still seeing the random /new-cars/auto-news etc urls still serving, with 404 pages..?

While some have resolved, majority are still showing 'new cars' in the url.

How can I fix this? Thank-you! ]]>

Each page I have currently has it's own meta tag, however, on product pages that have more then 1 page, it will have a duplicate tag on page 2,3,4 etc. Should I be worried about these? Or should I be focusing on other things first?

PDF Library getting best impression rate - How to utilize this to my benefit? http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/pdf-library-getting-best-impression-rate-how-utilize-my-benefit-498770.html Thu, 13 Dec 2018 17:37:25 GMT Hi! I run a site for a friend (creditscoremaestro.com), and have optimized for SEO to the best
of my ability. We offer a credit resource library, in the form of pdf's. I noticed that on Google
search console, I'm getting the most impressions and clicks via these pdf's. The problem is,
google links straight to the pdf rather than the page that shows the list of pdf's, so this doesn't
help much in the way of conversions or getting users to browse the site.

I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how I could utilize these clicks and impressions
to my benefit? I was thinking, maybe I could modify the pdf's to include a link to pages on my
site. I'm not sure if there would be a copyright issue here though.

Any ideas welcome. Thanks! ]]>
