  2. Google recently made lot of updates in its search algorithm update. But they disclosed few updates only for public and most of them never got disclosed. Myself ( i own few websites ) and my friends website, they all used to have a good traffic for few years and months and once i/them moved to https.. Its all gone. I asked for help in google forum and other seo webmasters. But nothing helping, no htmls errors, no https redirect errors and nothing. Everything perfect. it took 4 weeks to move all our http links to https. Google announcement that they provide rank boost for https website, its just a big black monstrous lie. Who gets benefits from moving to HTTPS. 1. News websites 2. E-commerce websites 3. Websites which collects bank details or card details. Note : Moving to https is risk and do not try right now. Google is testing things and it can roll back if they get lot of issues in https. Drawbacks 1. You have to update all your back-links to https. 2. You never get any authority flow from your http to http sites. 3. Moving to https is like buying a new website and trying to get traffic to it.
  3. Will DiggBar create duplicate content issues? For example, my site is example.com and now when you add digg.com before my site's address, digg.com/example.com, it is showing a page from Digg with my content exactly the same. Actually, the answer is No. When Digg was originally launched, it could have created duplicate content issues. Actually, it could have even resulted in pages from Digg being removed from Google. But the Digg has made a lot of better alterations like a meta no-index tag. So, it means anything that's on Digg, which is one of the framed shortened URLs, will have a no-index tag. So it says Google not to index that page. Google does not show any reference to it in search results. For the fact, Google will see two copies, one with meta no-index tag, which means, Google will not show this one. And they should correctly assign all the page rank and other characteristics to the original content. DiggBar, when it was originally implemented, was a little bit cautious, but it has been adjusted and iterated quickly. They have made better changes so one should not have duplicate content issues. Most of the people think the DiggBar is rude, but when one puts on search engine policy hat, then there will be no violation of search engine quality guidelines. And it should not create duplicate content issues for the site.
  4. If one looks to hire an SEO agency, which one do you recommend? Actually, it will not be good enough to recommend an SEO agency personally, because they may change their policies and we do not know what different agencies might be doing. So, the general answer is, one can search for Google SEO guidelines, and you will get a whole page of Webmaster Help Center, which helps one in knowing what are the things one should look for, while choosing SEO agency. So, references should tell one, what that particular agency is going to do. It should not be like they are going to wave some magic smoke and not tell you what they are doing, be a little worried about it. Even though you find them boring, they should let you know everything they are about to do. Google has changed their SEO guidelines from little controversial to more concerned on the ways to find out a good SEO agency. There are lots of great SEOs out there. So, if an SEO does not satisfy you, just don't settle for less, when you can have more.
  5. Will the new canonical tag help with issues where you by accident you have indexed by IP address rather than hostname? One has to double check it, but this kind of thing is, one would like to be able to do. One would like to put hostname rather than your IP address. Actually, Google has to consider this concern about the IP address different than the hostname. It will not be bad to go ahead and have that. This is the sort of thing where one does not wish to show up the IP address. Rather than, one wishes to have their host, their domain name. Actually it would be a nice thing to do. But, it is not sure that Google would support for IP addresses yet.
  6. Is a website designed with a CSS-based layout more SEO friendly than a table-based layout? Actually, one need not to be worried about it. Google can handle both table-based and CSS-based layout. Google scores them, regardless of what type of layout mechanism one uses. It is recommended to use what is the best for them. Nowadays, people tend to like CSS because it's easy to change the site, change the layout and it is modular as well. Whereas tables, have this Web 1.0 kind of connotation to them. But, what matters is, one must have the best site, then Google will try to find it and rank it without considering whether it's table-based or CSS-based layout.
