 query : Re: Can WordPress accept HTTP and HTTPS connections on the same blog? While working on the transition from HTTP to HTTPS, I have configured all websites to accept both HTTP and HTTPS connections.

@Frith620

Essentially no, although given this is open source software it could be hacked.

The main issue is the instance on using fully qualified paths everywhere. Changing wp-config.php file as @NataliK suggests allows the blog index to be seen with both HTTP and HTTPS protocols but that only goes so far.

What remains is that posts use absolute URLs whenever a link or image is inserted and those are in the DB. When migrating, one has to string-replace all database entries from one protocol to the other, so doing was is suggested results in plenty of mixed content warnings.

Through some code one can conduct the transformation on the fly when extracting database rows but this is a rather complicated task. It is much easier to wait until a full transition can be done.

 query : How to manage seo tags and metadata on ghost? I have some blog platfrom which is created with ghost. I can write my stories but the way how I have to manage my tags is not fully clear.

@Frith620

Posted in: #MetaDescription #MetaTags #Seo #Tags

I have some blog platfrom which is created with ghost.
I can write my stories but the way how I have to manage my tags is not fully clear. After writing a blog I can add metadata to my blog:


Meta Title
Meta Description
Search Engine Result Preview


I have to admit I was not really using this.
I wrote a blog, after that I went to tags.

Created for example a tag oranges for a blog about oranges. I could define a url which was point to the URL of my oranges blog. I could provide a description (Is it only useful for me or also for other people?). And again I could metadata for the tag. Which I wrote about my orange blog and as Title also the blog about the oranges.

Now I'm reading a bit more about SEO and I'm afraid I'm doing it wrong. To which URL do I have to point for my tags? Not to a blog?
Can someone explain to me the right way how to manage your tags + seo (metadata) for Ghost bloggings?

 query : Re: Many websites miss the HTML id or name attributes (no support for fragment URI's), what to do about it? I like the idea that HTML header elements have the id attribute. It allows to share

@Frith620

It is impossible to tell why this is less popular but we can make a few guesses:


Dynamically loaded content doesn't work with fragments because the content is not there and a fragment does not cause the browser to perform another HTTP request (in Chrome we just set the position of the scrollbar).
The HTML is not less tidy by adding the IDs but the page might be since without some links that point to the fragment, users generally have no way to get the URL with fragment. This is why the share link is needed in answers on Stack Exchange. You clock on it and it gives you a short URL to the appropriate answer.
Headers are important to websites. When you have a fragment, you skip much of the content which for advertising-revenue sites is not good. The trend is to put banner ads high up lately and even into the website header, so fragments would diminish revenue street for many sites.


There is no other way to point to a specific portion of a page unless the implementer designed one. If you look at StackExchange you will notice than answer links are not initially fragments but they do get turned into fragments when loading the link. This leverages browser support for fragments but it could be simulated by having Javascript read the parameter and even scroll the right element into view.

@Frith620

There will be a transition from Google showing Domain A to Domain B. Depending how large and how crawlable your site is, it can take days or even weeks for the transition to be complete.

The end result though will be that only Domain B will be left in the index since Domain A permanently redirects to Domain B. There is no point Google showing Domain A since it effectively has no content and so search results will only show Domain B.

Google will only keep a redirecting page in the index if it is a temporary redirect, returning 302 instead of 301. That will also slow down your users since the redirect will not be cached.

You can't delegate the root of a zone this way. You need to find the other option at your regstrar's site where you set the authoritative nameservers for your registered domain.

 query : Re: Block company domain from apache website how? so I am running a site on apache. I want to block all visitors from domain *.xyz.com I tried adding the following in .htaccess file: <Files

@Frith620

Not really. A webserver does not directly know the domain of its users which they may not even have one, in fact.

It does know the referrer, if sent but that only can protect you from a link from a certain domain. They can easily spoofed too, so when used referral discrimination is more of a deterrent than protection. A person that types the URL directly though sends no referrer.

What the server must know is the IP the request is coming which is where it serves the response to. If you want to block people whose machines are within a certain domain, you must block them by IP. Even so, proxies and VPNs can add a relay which effectively changes the IP address of requests.

To block by IP you put in the .htaccess a statement like:

deny from 192.168.*.*


Or:

deny from 192.168.0.0/16


To do this you have to figure out the IP range for the company or domain you are trying to block. In a few cases that use some kind of gateway, it may be even just one IP address, in others there may be quite a few.

If you want to follow best practice as far as Google's Guidelines are concerned, you should be showing everyone the exact same content - users and bots alike.
An alternative would be to place the content in HTML on the page, underneath the image, but use an accordion / dropdown / click to expand type thing so that the text would be "hidden" unless clicked on and won't affect the UX of the page.

 query : Re: google did not crawl for my new updated website and crawling old once on same URl I have my website from last 7 years. recently now I have updated and redesign with some different landing

@Frith620

It takes time. Google index is huge and the crawler must find out that a link is not valid by visiting it and seeing what return code it gets.

Once the crawler gets back either a Permanent Redirect (301) or Gone (410), then that URL will be marked for replacement or removal from the index. So the thing to do on your side is make sure you return these return codes whenever possible.

Using a Not Found (404) is less effective because Google can come back later and try to crawl it, in case it was a temporary malfunction.

EDIT: As @closetnoc commented. Fetch as Googlebot does not update the index nor does it force Google to update it any faster. It is a tool to help you see if there are any problems. The Google index is enormous and distributed around the world, so it takes time to update.

@Frith620

The name of a business has an impact when you expect people to search for it by name. Otherwise, what you need to make sure your pages and websites are relevant to what your target audience is looking for.

So if the the specialty is pilgrimages make sure that you have pages that show it with the pathname and headings (H1, H2) expressing that. Basically, the page has to show to users what it is about which is why Google prefers things that are highly visible to the user.

Now the domain name is an important part of ranking. Although Google mentioned it was toning it down a little, I still find that it can often skew results. Meaning you can search of X Y and a popular page called X that mentions Y is often ranked than a page named Z about X Y.

What you can do is get creative such as called the domain pilgrimages-by-xyz.com or equivalent. Just to be clear though, these are all small factors among hundreds that affect ranking. They each make a difference somewhere but a big impact really comes from doing a lot of these but not necessarily all of them. You do have to put your users first because when Google tweaks its algorithms, it is generally to promote pages that are better for users.

So in total you've pressed that button two times and that means you did two goals. If you click 100 times the button, You'll generate 100 goals/events.

How can I set up it so your press of the "Next" button would calculate as only one goal and event and not 100 in Analytics report? I do not need hundreds of goals of a user who just clicked one button many times.

@Frith620

Technically you can say it is a cross site scripting but this is not an attack or a hole for one to attack through since nothing the user entered is used to change what is inserted.

What the code is doing is inserting the result obtained from the other domain int a div on the current domain. There is an implication of trust here, meaning that what is returned by otherdomain.com from magic_php_file.php is good to insert into the div with id #div .

One can imagine this was done to load advertising or other embedded content. This is not entirely different than using Google Adsense for example: Google gives you a script to insert into your HTML which loads another script from a Google domain and executes on your page.

My question is not technical (how to do it using X technology), it's about choosing proper approach that is good for SEO.

Description

Let's say I have a website example.com. It's a multilingual site, but there is no default language at root level. Instead of that I'd like to redirect to proper subdirectory based on http_accept_language (or any other condition, whatever) to keep things consistent. Condition is unimportant right now, but let's make it easier with example:

example.com # redirects to …
example.com/es # … /es if spanish is accepted language
example.com/da # … /es if danish is accepted language
example.com/en # … /en otherwise


They're actually the same websites, with translated content so if example.com/en/items/1 exists, also /es/items/1 and /da/items/1 exist. Of course all pages have alternate hreflang links etc.
