Someone (not me, obviously) created 100,000+ different links to the root page of my website, by using a bot, from 100,000+ different pages of the edition of the Wikipedia of a country (in the minority language of that country, my website is in English).

Could this action damage my SEO? If so, any idea to remove all the links?

My website has 1,000,000+ webpages, I submitted them to Google through Sitemaps, but only 200,000 are indexed. Additionally, I'm suffering the Google sandbox effect, with pages which actually offer high-quality information for several searches, but with very low ranking within the SERPs. Could both events be related?

Thank you very much. ]]>

Schema: Added on HP, where else? http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/schema-added-hp-where-else-498067.html Fri, 12 Oct 2018 05:58:23 GMT I have recently added my organisation's details at the homepage of the company that I am doing the SEO for and I wonder in which other pages should I add such script.
Some questions:
1) One competitor added the same generic organisation's info at other subcategories/pages. Is that ok? Can the same exactly script be used to different pages? Will it help or it's useless?
2) Are there any main schema themes that are good to be used? Like the organisation info that is important, is there anything else like must have? I am aware of the pages that present all different schema items, but I am wondering which are the most essential.
3) Regarding the knowledge panel. Except the schema info at the HP, are there other pages of the website that should include schema, so that the panel will appear soon? The schema at the HP was added 4 days ago with all related company's links and nothing yet for the panel. ]]>

I know this because they have tried to comment on my blog and always attempt to put a link to thier content in the blog comment.

My personal feeling is it is all a bit spammy. But ive also noted their presence in search results. So Im guessing the links, even though low quality, have given them a bit of a boost.

Should I get involved in Blog and forum commenting for links, or is it considered a spammy practice best avoided ? ]]>

cloaking and FLASH http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/cloaking-flash-498034.html Tue, 09 Oct 2018 14:11:51 GMT Checking into a big drop in GOOGLE placement under the keyword "Fractions",
I looked into sitechecker.pro and they claim that one of my critical errors is:

Google: page isn't same.
Cloaking is considered a violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines because it
provides users with different results than they expected.

At one time visualfractions.com pages were built with FLASH animation but after
reading that the IPAD and now many browsers are not crazy about running
FLASH aps I decided to switch over to ADOBE ANIMATE CC to write
animations with javascript. All done.
Since then I sent in a new sitemap.xml file that lists only the javascript versions
of the animations. I removed the FLASH versions from the xml file on the site
but the FLASH versions are still on site.

My guess is that is where Google thinks the "cloaking" is going on. I like to leave
the FLASH versions up because there are many links to them.

Here is what I'm considering:
Listing the FLASH animations in the robots.txt files such as:

Disallow: ../CompareL/comparel.html

Any opinions on this matter? ]]>

I have an eCommerce site where I sell a lot of unique products. I have more than 500 products and most of them only exist in single quantity.
So when items get sold, I deactivate them but still keep them in the database in case I manage to get the items back, which sometimes happens after few months. Then I reactive the product.

This apparently is giving a lot of "page not found errors" on search engine and I have been advised
to redirect the inactive pages.
But is this the best thing to do? Should I keep inactive items in my database and redirect them to some other page? Or should I just
delete them? I don't want my database to increase continuously.

Any advice or solution? ]]>
