    where these internal links come from?


    Hi

    I run this test on my website:
    aw-snap.info/file-viewer/?protocol=secure&tgt=learn-greek-online.com&ref_sel=GSP2&ua_sel=ff&fs=1

    If you scroll down at URLs you will see several of them that should not really exist. I don't know where they came from:
    learn-greek-online.com/a
    learn-greek-online.com/s
    learn-greek-online.com/$this.data(
    learn-greek-online.com/a,b,c
    learn-greek-online.com/b.type,b.url,b.async,b.username,b.password

    Normally I would have ignored them and assumed that it was a bug of the diagnostic tool. However I remember that one of the links was reported from google's webmastertools:
    learn-greek-online.com/a

    I scanned my website with screaming frog, I did not find anything related.

    Any idea how to find those please?

    I think you have a syntax error somewhere on your site as that appears to be jquery in the url.

    So I ran screaming frog on your site but that handled it ok and could not find these links.
    It did however point out you have a link to learn-greek-online.com/ask-greek/tos which is the old http and not the secure version, it seems to be coming from your Terms of Service link on pages such as learn-greek-online.com/ask-greek/register?to=933

    Hi Chedders

    Thanks for checking this.

    1) I run it through the HTML validator ( https://validator.w3.org/ ). It gave me a couple of CSS parse errors. I don't know what they are, the CSS is not mine, I am using the Purity template.

    What tool can I use to help me find the error?

    What I did, I had INLINED all the CSS (2-3 big 100K files). Could this be a problem? I could try to load them conventionally and try again....

    2) How did you locate the source page ( learn-greek-online.com/ask-greek/register?to=933 ) ? I did see the 302 code, but I could not locate the source page. I have the FREE version of the frog though.

    I have the full version of screaming frog so can crawl you entire site. there were over 900 such links but I think they came from the same page but with different parameters so if you fix 1 it should fix the rest.

    Any other way we can spot the error links I wrote on the first post?

    I did fix the http url.

    I think its an error in the tool.
    you should also make your external links such as on this page learn-greek-online.com/testimonials.html nofollow. You dont want google thinking your just a link farm.

    I wanted to keep them as a courtesy to the clients. I am removing them.

    I am also removing the word "pharmacy" from this page, as it is considered a spam word: learn-greek-online.com/tourist-greek.html

    You can keep, just add
    Code:
    <a href="example.com" rel="nofollow">text</a>

    yes, I know. I meant I prefered to give them some juice with the dofollow. Anyway, next version of the site is nofollow ( dev8.learn-greek-online.com/testimonials.html )

    dev8.learn-greek-online.com/free-lesson.html side note, so much power is going to this page - I'd try and rank it for something.. currently, you're telling Google it's for "Free trial lesson", even if it's "free trial greek lesson" surely it would be more beneficial to you?!

    Hi Matt

    Could you tell me where you see this power going into the page? You mean from the internal links? The orange button in the footer?

    Actually it is "free trial greek online lesson".

    But the entire site is about online greek lessons. So I thought to make it more comfortable to the reader and entered what I thought is necessary.

    Edit:
    Done, I have added it. If you are right, I will gain visitors.

    Yes because of the internal linking, just about all your pages links to it through your orange buttons.

    Even if it's not "free trial greek lesson" just something, just seems a bit of a waste is all
