Our business has growned. Years ago we were only offering a specific service. Overtime, we added new services and also products so we are diversifying.

Our main and only website which has a very high reputation now needs to be split and I am wondering what would be the best way to do it.

I am seeking advises from the professional here.

Obvious way would be to create a completely separated website and make permanent redirect but I am also wondering if the subdomain way would be better.

If ever I create a subdomain (new-business-name.oldsite.com), would it be a good strategy and if so, is it possible and is it a good idea to create a permanent redirect of the newly acquired domain name to the subdomain site?

If this is possible, if ever clients type in my business name, would they see the subdomain URL or the new website domain in their address bar? Ultimately my goal would be for users to see newdomainname URL even if site is physically standing on a subdomain of our main site.

I am sure many would suggest to keep one main site but this was well thought. My wife is a musician for special events and over the years we opened a music store and school. Now the site is more focused on the store/school and we would definitely need to separate the musician from the store/school.

Thank you very much in advance for your help with this.

Do you think I should have more pictures on my homepage of newsite.proviolin.com? And if so, where should they go? Also, should I have a CTA button or just underlined word where it takes the visitor to a different page?

Would a CTA button modernize the site? What other things should I do to modernize the site?

P.S. I will get developer help later but want to do as much of it as I can now before I meet with her.

Thank you. ]]>

My main SEO concern now is ranking for the cities I teach in. According to Yoast SEO plugin, I need to have 400 words in a page to rank well for a certain cities. Is this really necessary? For example, for Woodbury violin lessons, Woodbury Violin Lessons | Violin Lessons | Pro Violin, and other city pages, do I need to have at least 400 words?

Like I said before, I will address website speed later with newsite.proviolin.com.

Site Crashed http://forums.seochat.com/web-design-coding-programming-11/site-crashed-495048.html Thu, 22 Feb 2018 16:29:26 GMT Hey there,

A vendor I'm using recently switched servers from WP Engine to AWS. One day after the switch, the site crashed. They said the issue was a spike in traffic, but traffic was pretty average. When I questioned them, this is the response I received. "User traffic causes degradation of web services. If it happens again, we will move it to a larger instance. We are monitoring it today. There really is nothing more to say."

I'm calling BS, but wanted to get other people's opinions on here first. This is an area that I'm not an expert in. ]]>

Website Inversely ranking (Google) in 2 countries for main keyword http://forums.seochat.com/google-optimization-7/website-inversely-ranking-google-2-countries-main-keyword-495046.html Thu, 22 Feb 2018 12:28:21 GMT Hi community,

Our website got some abnormal ranking issue at Google. If our ranking is improved at one country, it's getting dropped in another country and vice-versa for our main keyword. And these 2 countries are our primary market places. It's not temporary or accidental. It's been happening for years and I really wonder what might be the reason behind this. I don't think Google is intentionally doing this. Something from G Algo has triggered to happen this and I feel back-links may be contributing here. Please share your views to get me out of this.

Thanks ]]>

The blog is Wordpress format that is hosted in a subfolder of my domain.

I'm considering purchasing a secondary URL that is shortened primarily for mobile and microblogging(read: Twitter) user functionality.

The idea is this:

mylongdomain.com/wordpress/seo-article-xyz is to be 301'd to ----> shorturl.com/seo-article-xyz


as you can see, the shorter url is shortened even more by including the blog subfolder.
My question is, will this affect SEO in any appreciable way? Good, bad, neutral? ]]>
