I have a website which used to show several hundreds of pages with information about digital cameras. I obtained that information from a provider, but I will no longer have access to that information.
I found that hundreds of visitors accessed that webpages through Google SERPs, and I decided to show "<meta name=’robots’ content=’noindex, nofollow’>" with a "No information about digital cameras" warning on the page, instead of a 404 error message.
Now, Google is warning me about an Increase in "soft-404" pages, and that this "can cause a bad experience for your users". I’m not sure if the best way to remove a webpage with no longer information is using the noindex-nofollow headers, the 404 error message, or even the 410 error message.
My web developer had added the meta description of a home page as "Meta Description"
and it has now being changed. However, when I search for the company or the domain name, the
meta description seen is "Meta Description". The website has two versions – NL & FR. In the
webmasters tool, I have added the links http://www.domainname.com/nl/home & http://www.domainname.com/fr/home in the URL Removal tool & selected "Remove page from
cache only" in google webmasters. However, the link being displayed after searching the brand or
domain name, is "domainname.com".
I’ve been out of the game for awhile. I let my site go years ago, but now i’m back and would like to get it back up to where it was. Anyone have any suggestions for SEO software I could purchase? My site is funny-tshirts.com and I’m basically starting from scratch.
GlobalGiving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community for non-profits, raising over $228M in more than 165 countries. Aiding everything from disaster relief to education, communication is a lifeline for GlobalGiving. For that, they turn to HipChat.
When a disaster hits, GlobalGiving launches into relief efforts instantly. This includes reaching out to partners across the world, connecting distributed teams, and keeping the website up and running at a time when individuals and companies are more inclined to donate.
A world of benefits
GlobalGiving recently relied on HipChat immediately following the earthquake in Nepal. The GlobalGiving team was able to quickly gather in their disaster response HipChat room to create a plan of action.
“We were using HipChat to communicate with staff, partners in the field, and our sister organization in the UK,” said Kevin Conroy, Chief of Product at Global Giving. “HipChat became the source of truth for the entire team.”
Sometimes making important decisions is more comfortable face to face. With the new HipChat group video platform, GlobalGiving can invite teammates to a group video chat by simply sharing a link.
“Being able to meet spontaneously without arranging for a full-blown meeting helps save precious time,” said Paige Creigh, In-the-Field Senior Program Associate.
When time is short, GlobalGiving uses HipChat to maximize every second, and we’re proud to be a part of their story. Watch the story above.
