Upgrading WordPress Theme – New MySQL database & SEO

Hello, I was wondering if someone could should some light on an issue I am currently experiencing.

We have a website which we were upgrading to a new theme on WordPress. It had 8GB worth of images
so to create the new website we did the following:

- Fresh WordPress installation and MySQL database.
- Installed the new theme
- Used WordPress importer to import the posts and pages from the original website minus the images.

Once the website was complete we then transferred the new website and database to the ‘live’ hosting platform.
The original images remained in place and never changed URL’s.

The issue I am having now is my client is saying the images are falling from Google Images when
searching. No images have changed their location and they remain on the same posts of the original
URL.

Is it possible to lose SEO ranking by having a new database which has not changed any URL addresses?

Thank you in advance.

Client Reviews – Microdata Validation

HI,

I have already validated the codes on Google "structured data testing-tool" and there are no errors. Am using this on my testimonial page i.e. I will display reviews obtained from my customers to whom I have already completed their web design projects.

I need your advices about whether Google will understand these data as I would like.

Code:

<div class="xxxxx" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review">
<span itemprop="reviewBody">Full review of what customer think about my services</span>
<meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2016-09-05"> //Date of Review
<span itemprop="itemReviewed" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/CreativeWork">
        <span itemprop="name">Name of service that will be reviewed</span>
    </span>

    <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating">
        <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span>,
        <span itemprop="name">Title of Review</span>     

    </span>

    <span itemprop="author" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
        <span itemprop="name">Name of person working at client</span>,
        <span itemprop="jobTitle">Position of above person</span>,
        <link property="sameAs" href="https://www.linkedin.com/person-name"/>

    </span>

    <div itemprop="publisher" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">
        <img itemprop="logo" src="http://mywebsite.com/client-logo.jpg"/>, // am pulling the logo from my site (and not client's website) because of styling
        <a href="http://www.client-website.com" itemprop="url">Client's Website</a>,
        <span itemprop="name">Client's company name</span>,
        <div itemprop="telephone">+111 11111111</div>
        <div itemprop="address" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">
        <span itemprop="addressLocality">Client's Company Town</span>,
        <span itemprop="addressCountry">Client's Company Country</span> </div>

    </div>
</div>

Spammy Backlink Bots Running Against us for 2.5 Years

We identified a spammy backlink campaign pointed at our domain in early 2016.

We found someone (bots?) was placing backlinks pointing to 4 threads on our discussion forums from literally over 3,800 domains and nearly 100,000 URL’s.

This began in mid 2014, and it knocked us completely out of Google by the end of 2015.

So early 2016 we discovered it, and began working on a disavow file, as well as deleting the 4 threads they were pointing everything to.

We had a slight recovery after uploading the disavow file finally with nearly 3,800 domain names on it. But we never fully recovered.

A few months later i saw we’d dropped out of Google again.

I have now just checked our "Fresh" list from Majestic, and they’re still going. I can’t believe this. Two years later somoene is still running the same d*mn bots linking to the same URLS, but from newer and newer domain names.

How can we stop this? Is there anything I can possibly do to stop it? No matter what things Google offers for us to "disavow" these domains, I can’t help but believe that a site doesn’t want this sort of thing continuing to go on, and on, and on.

We have no manual penalties from Google. A site called Sucuri told me they’d placed my domain on a black list assuming we had done this campaign ourselves.

In fact i’ve been "accused" of doing it myself by a few SEO people who even chuckled when I told them I didn’t do it. So I don’t like the possibility that Google might also "chuckle in disbelief".

We’ve got to stop this. I assume at the very least I have to keep adding the new domains to our disavow on a weekly basis forever?

Who the heck is controlling this bot? How does it run for 2.5 years nonstop???

Opinion: Social Media’s Impact on SEO

I’ll keep it brief. This topic is very debatable. Question: Does social media affect SEO
My answer is yes. Many SEOs have identified via analytics that social media efforts affect SEO but none seem to know why or how. The links are nofollow and not exactly "natural" by Google’s standards and have no value as far as Page rank/authority and etc. However, most websites are connected with Google Analytics which collects data about who has viewed a website. This information is then used to make that website show up much higher in search results for persons who have been on that page. I.e. if you get thousands of people on your blog via social media, your website will likely show up near the top of the first page followed by the words "last visited January 3" or you visited "January 3" etc. These personalized results show up in analytics and Webmaster tools data causing an upward trend in both position and CTR. I have limited experience in the field of SEO so if you guys could weigh in on the topic would be great!

Sharing Accounts

I’m a bit fuzzy on this one. I have a few adwords for some nonprofits but also want to see some other clients data but how to share this?

I have one client who uses a different person for adwords but I can’t see the data in GA on my account. How do I pull this into my account?

Is there a way to have more than one account in a dashboard?

Thanks
