Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

Hey again, Since doing the .htaccess edit my site jumped back onto page 1. So this must be the issue. However, when using the force canonical code thingy, it also makes any domains pointing at my server use the domain name of the site I'm talking about. So I got an angry call from a customer who run...

How many sitemaps?

How do I just submit one sitemap index to Google that covers topics, posts etc.? If it exists, where can I find it? So far I've been using a few because I don't know which is the right one: /news/sitemap.xml /news/Sitemap.xml /news/sitemapindex.xml Thanks, Teeb EDIT: for myurl.com/sitemapindex.xml i...

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

Remove that: Redirect 301 /index.php http://diablo3forum.co.uk You can't combine it with the other rules. The www to non-www redirect should work fine and is the important one. I'll have a look about the /index.php to / part tomorrow or maybe you find something on Google. The guys here http://www.w...

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

Ah crap, so my .htaccess edit didn't actually work on the live site - it says 'infinite redirect loop' so I must have done something wrong. What should I put in?

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

I can confirm that this part of the .htaccess file is causing the problem: RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} index\. [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)index\.(.*) /$1 [L,NC,R=301] Any way to achieve the same redirect with different code? I get the feeling that the above messes with how the redirect from acp login work...

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

Umm, I installed the optimise tool, and now I can't log into my ACP . It just keeps asking me to re-authenticate, I enter my password, and it takes me back to the exact same page. What should I do? Could it be a problem with the .htaccess code? I didn't put a second "RewriteEngine On" btw....

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

Does this affect my ranking on Google? How fast my page loads? Yes, it's a ranking factor, but normally one not too much to worry about, except when load time is really excessive. I got 75/100 for the speed page test, so it can't be excessive. [Say I want to keep http://diablo3forum.co.uk/index.php...

Re: Site has been taken off Google, why?

The site loads really slow. Your homepage is indexed and accessible via four different URLs <snip> = duplicate content. Decide which version you want to keep and then solve the issue with 301 redirects. Also use the "Fetch as Google" + "Instant Preview" features in the Webmaster...

Hey guys, My site uses the premod version of phpBB SEO with default settings for everything. It is still indexed by Google, but it won't show up in the rankings. What are the most common reasons for phpBB SEO users to have this happen? I'm not breaking the guidelines btw (no keyword stuffing, cloaki...
