Well it appears that Google is finally seeing the light concerning this issues.

So what should you do to combat these attacks on your website ??. Well according to John Mueller, the answer is simple, Do absolutely Nothing. Do not waste your time on a Google disavow file, use that only for links that you actually built.

Here is the article from SEJ, with answers from John M.

I followed some instructions about inserting the keywords into the <content> headers, but I was not allowed to add the keywords. I received an error.

SEMrush Position Tracking Inaccurate Unreliable http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/semrush-position-tracking-inaccurate-unreliable-499484.html Tue, 19 Feb 2019 18:36:47 GMT I know a lot of people use SEMrush (including myself). I'm been a bit disappointed lately as it appears the accuracy of their positon tracking is pretty unreliable compared to other position tracking services I've used (such as Whitespark). I tested rankings for many keywords and campaigns and found many that were ranked #1 to be reported as #3 or #4 in SEMrush. I've checked by using the Ad Preview tool in Adwords and setting the search city location and device appropriately, have used I Search From (I Search From: custom location, language, device & personalization Google Search tool to preview ads & results) and have used Whitespark's rank tracker. The latter three were all in agreement on the tests I ran yet in many cases SEMrush was different. Something definitely currrently whacky with SEMrush's Position Tracker.



Just throwing this out there for people also using SEMrush to track position. You may want to go double check the results you're getting from them. ]]>

We 2 sub domains with hundreds of pages where we need only 50 pages to get indexed which are important. Unfortunately the CMS of these sub domains is very old and not supporting "noindex" tag to be deployed on page level. So we are planning to block the entire sites from robots.txt and allow the 50 pages needed. But we are not sure if this is the right approach as Google been suggesting to depend mostly on "noindex" than robots.txt. Please suggest whether we can proceed with robots.txt file.

in an effort to get its ranking improved from its present average position of 3.

(xxxyyyyzzzzzz.com is not available at a reasonable price)
