I have noticed that I am unable to rank my website even though acquired backlinks from authority sites.
I can see no improvements at all in Google SERP. None of the keywords is ranking.
Website: Lightbox - Top Venture Capital (VC) Firms, Investors, Funds in India
We are the Venture Capital Firm in India. Does the Domain VC is affecting my ranking on Google or other reasons.

Two examples: sheknows.com/*community/home/*ten-tips-buy-car-insurance Two sub-folders deep. dogfoodhowto.com/*899/*whats-the-best-puppy-food-for-cockapoo-puppy-at-home.html Hi Guys,

How can you determine the value of external links which are deep inside a website. Two examples:

sheknows.com/community/home/ten-tips-buy-car-insurance

Two sub-folders deep.

dogfoodhowto.com/899/whats-the-best-puppy-food-for-cockapoo-puppy-at-home.html

One sub-folder deep.

These links are clearly far from the homepage, so was wondering if they are worthless or how can you determine the value of them?

Cheers. ]]>

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 :)

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' ]]>
