Is it possible to make Google Analytics GDPR compliant without having to ask for consent before loading the GA script?

I see that I can disable UserID tracking, Author tracking and anonymize the IP. Will this be enough?

In the link below, they state that even if you disable those things, GA still tracks client ID, and that ClientID is also considered personal information. is this correct? if it is, is there a way to disable this as well?

The article below from the wordpress plugin, Monster Insights, seem to claim that their plugin witch would replace google tag manager, can make you GDPR compliant without having to ask for consent if you follow the example number 1 in the article. Does anyone have any experience with this addon, and have any thoughts about wether or not that is correct?

I am in the process of changing my Wordpress website to another CMS that a team is developing for me.
I want to use this opportunity to also change a part of my website structure to make it more clear and to improve SEO; let me expain:
My website is in Vietnamese, so I give an example in English.
My eCommerce pages are now domain.com/travel-singapore, but they need to change to /tour-singapore.
And like this I have more or less 100 other destinations. So this means I have to redirect 100 pages to their new url.

Can so many redirects harm SEO and page ranking? ]]>

What is the proper way to get rid of links that are searchable by google.

What I am trying to do is, in the past we were creating CITY landing pages to get our local rank up in particular cities. Google would probably consider it doorway pages and am wanting to take them down. We have kept the content unique by adding tid bits on the city at the end of the page.

Our website is ranking really well without these City pages and was wondering if it would be a bad thing to get rid of 12 pages at once. And if i do so what is the proper way to tell google not to add them in searches?

Please advise.

Thanks,

It's been a while! (2010 since I last posted!) but I've been trying to "make it" ever since and still refuse to give up :lol:

I setup my new site https://www.itjustgotpersonal.co.uk in 2017 and I've made a few thousand Ģ's of sales using adwords and merchant center but I was actually losing money so I stopped this until I review my strategy.

One area I'm really missing out on is organic traffic from google, I have pretty much none! I wondered if any of you could take a look at my site and give me any advise on SEO and getting organic traffic. I think I have the basics covered from what I've picked up over the years but I'm still not quite there.

One of my highest ranking pages (with a decent monthly search volume) is for "Personalised Cheeseboards" but I'm still only 38 on google UK. The URL for this is Here. If you could specifically review this page and maybe I can get it ranking even higher?

Any other comments would really be appreciated, design, product range, usability etc.

Thanks in advance!
