virtual page views are not playing nice with goal funnels http://forums.seochat.com/analytics-analysis-76/virtual-page-views-not-playing-nice-goal-funnels-497304.html Mon, 13 Aug 2018 02:44:12 GMT I've been stuck on this on and off for a week and tried a number of things, so haaalp

Basically, because i'm using an SPA I have to trigger virtual pageviews via data layer to gtm for each step in the step UI i'm trying to track
for a conversion funnel. The virtual pageviews work find in terms of all of the standard reports and all testing with tag assistant and
GTM preview mode check outs BUT I can get the goals to record with virtual page views. I've set up events, so I at least have goal
tracking but as you guys may know, with event based goals, you can't use funnels.

Anyone have an idea on what the issue may be here?
The only thing i'm thinking is that for goal, passing just the page URI (e.g.: virtual/some-page)
and the page title (page title) may not be enough...maybe something is missing, maybe I need hostname or something for
goals to work??

I'm open to trying anything, just need to be pointed in a direction.... ]]>

Iím auditing an e-commerce website but Iím having really difficult time figuring out why Googlebot canít render the pages correctly. When I check the cache of the pages i see that googlebot couldnít render much of the content.

A url for instance:giamor.com/kadin-deri-ceket-35


I have an opinion about what might be the issue but Iím not sure:
The url has escaped fragment version (in this case the ugly url is https://www.giamor.com/kadin-deri-ce...ed_fragment_=& ) but googlebot doesnít request it because original url doesnít contain a #! hash fragment or meta tag
Code:

<meta name="fragment" content="!">
Or maybe it might be due to robots.txt has a line which disallows /Handlers/ (I donít know what it is).


I would really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance. ]]>

Schema Optimization http://forums.seochat.com/search-engine-optimization-28/schema-optimization-497288.html Fri, 10 Aug 2018 13:33:34 GMT I am attempting to optimize my schema data. Just a couple of days ago I added the schema data to only my index page, so I still do not have any structured data appearing in search console. Currently, I have some simple JSON-LD schema implemented. See below:

Code:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "Organization",
  "url": "https://mbkit.com",
  "name": "MB Kit Systems",
  "description": "MB Kit Systems uses its high-quality T-slot extruded aluminum framing to design and assemble linear motion systems, machine guarding, machinery and other structures.",
  "logo": "https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/mbkitsystems/mbkLogo.png",
  "contactPoint": {
    "@type": "ContactPoint",
    "telephone": "+1-888-729-4500",
    "contactType": "Customer service"
  }
}
</script>

I chose this option because on Google's "Introduction to Structured Data" page they have it listed as the recommended type.

What I am wondering is what else I should or can put in the schema. I cannot find options for this anywhere.

In addition, does anyone think I should add microdata as well and let the two work in tangent?

I contacted the plugin's author and he said that there is some
optimizer plugin on my Wordpress site injecting defer onlaod = " " into the AMP scripts.
Autoptimize, Smush, WP Fastest Cache, and All-in-One SEO; these are my website optimizing plugins.
Someone told me that Autoptimize is not the cause of the issue. Which one of the 3 could it be then?
Could there be a cause other than that?

We have two websites one is developed in plain HTML and CSS (business website) and one in WordPress.

We got the message in google webmaster that Mobile-first indexing is enabled for your website but did not received message for our business website.

As we all know, WordPress is mobile friendly is that a reason they have included it first and not included my other website.

I did check for mobile-friendly site test by Google and it passed the test saying it's mobile-friendly.

what could be the reason, should they will include my site later??

any suggestions? ]]>

Loss of 2/3 of traffic mainly from a new layout of serp now containing

Ads
Shopping ads
New authoritative publications talking about our products
Video carousel
Map (non relevant )
Recommend searches
Then two of us selling the product way down low.

This is a version of an earlier serp layout seen late last year. G switched it up to a more relevant result page which was working well for me and the comp.

Have any of you seen a drop in position and traffic due to a new layout serp as described above rather then just being out ranked?

Are any of you still seeing dancing?

Does anyone have any experience of using numbers in keywords?

I'm starting a campaign for a furniture E-Commerce shop and looking up using keywords like "1 Seater Sofa"

Does anyone know if this is even allowed?

And if it is, is it successful?

Or should I just use words and say "One Seater Sofa"?

What could cause a sudden increase in impressions when the average position is pretty much the same?



This is really boggling me. Starting 1 August, our impressions for one of our keywords has spiked for unknown reasons. Prior to this, the daily impression for the keyword does not even get past 10... like 1, 0, 1, 3 (that super low). Then 1 August came and the impression was suddenly 287. It climbed further by 2 August to 1,506. It seems to be starting to normalise now with 752 impressions for 4 August.

There is no notable change on the position of this keyword so I'm not sure what happened. I understand there was an August algo update (there always is) but shouldn't that at least reflect in terms of position (and not impression)?

Honestly I'm afraid if I should watch out for any negative SEO being carried out against the site but... I dunno.
