I’m running Google Chrome on my Windows system and would really like to be able to add a toolbar or two to help me learn more about the sites I visit. In particular, is there a good SEO (search engine optimization) toolbar you recommend?
When I do a search on Google why are videos showing up on page 1 now, and more importantly why isn’t my YouTube video showing up? Is there some way to improve my chances of being found on YouTube and Google for videos I upload?
I have a wordpress blog that was using categories in the url structure like this:
Then I had read somewhere that if you change it to just /post_name/ that it will automatically redirect the old to the new.
It does that, however, somehow Google Webmaster Tools is reporting both and giving us warnings about duplicate title tags, etc.
Do you have a solution for that?
We changed our website recently and also changed the menus on it so some of our pages have a different path now. For about 2-3 weeks after the switch we noticed our Google Analytics fell off, then we checked mypagerank.net and out page ranks had gone from 3, 4, or 5 to 0 on some of the pages. Our web designer is being somewhat cryptic about why this happened. Can you explain what would cause this and if our page rank will go back up or do we need to do something?
I notice that sometimes on the Google search results that the author of the article is displayed next to the match in the search. Sweet. How do I do that? Is it tied to the addition of the new rel=author attribute?
I’ve heard that one of the best ways to improve my Google search ranking is to fix anything that’s marked as incorrect in Google’s Webmaster Tools service. Problem is, when I did go to Webmaster Central it says my site’s not verified. How do I verify my Web site with Google Tools?
