Blog-posts pages are dominating in search console "Internal Links".

Hi all,

Ours is WordPress website and we have a blog…website.com/blog/. All the important pages in the website are well linked from top and footer menu. But in our webmasters…internal links section, only homepage is at the top. Blog-posts are others followed by homepage. I wonder why blog pages are dominating our website pages. Please give your suggestions on this. Do you think Google will give more priority for the blog-posts than website pages as they are more linked technically?

Thanks

Deceptive content: http link in the WordPress plugin script used in the page?

Hi,

We have recently received "Social engineering content" warning from Google. One of our important pages and it’s internal links have been marked with "Deceptive site ahead" notice. But we don’t employ any such content as mentioned by Google.

We are using a WordPress plugin for the layout of the page. The script in the page source contains two http links. Do you think these links are reason behind getting this notice from Google?

Thanks

Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt: Need to bother?

Hi,

We have intentionally blocked some of the website files which were indexed for years. Now we receive a message "Indexed, though blocked by robots.txt" in GSC. We can ignore as per my knowledge? Are any actions required about this? We thought of blocking them with meta tags but these are PDF files.

Thanks

Google’s Importance on usability issues in sub directories or sub domains?

Hi all,

As the different usability issues like pagespeed or mobile responsiveness are playing a key role in website rankings; I wonder how much the same factors are important for sub directories or sub domain pages? Do each and every page of sub directory or sub domain must be optimised like website pages? Does Google gives same importance?

Have you ever changed the logo anchor text from "logo" to "keyword"? Google’s stand?

Hi all,

We know that generally logo with the website homepage link is the first link crawled by Google and other search engines. Can we change the anchor text from "logo" to "keyword"? Have any one tried or seen others doing? How Google considers it?

What happens if we remove all the links to internal pages from our homepage?

Hi community,

We wanna give a try by removing all the links from homepage to internal pages and keep just a free trial button. Will this impact our SEO anyway? We have nearly 15 important internal pages at 2nd and 3rd hierarchy level. They may drop in rankings but we want to risk for few days to understand how it works. Your opinion please!

Thanks
