Administrator posted a topic in WebMasters Help Forum - Free Google SEO Tips and GuidelinesWill 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.
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.
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.
How Google calculates site load times in the data it exposes in Google's webmaster statistics? Is the calculation simply average time to get and receive the HTML content for a page? Actually, it's a Yes. It works as, Googlebot sends out the request and beginning from there, Google calculates the time it takes for them to see the request back. So it is almost like, the end-to-end time to deliver the page or deliver the data from the server. Google sees it from the view of Googlebot. Google has no idea how to calculate the time for any given user to deliver a page. So, Google sees only at Googlebot's perspective.
