What with my using Blogger as my website host, I strongly suspect Google automatically does a lot of this stuff for me behind the scenes.
And since we are talking about search stuff, Google has become our new Alphabet, http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companie … partandhp.
Thanks for the link, always looking for something new or old to try.
I'm exhausted just reading that. Luckily, most major website CMS' take care of all those basics if you don't play around too much. And I'm a big fan of duplicate content - when used correctly. It's one of my biggest earners and Google itself says there's no reason not to use it, APPROPRIATELY.
That is interesting about duplicate content. I remember some time ago reading that duplicate content is not bad in itself; that it is normal, for instance, in syndicated work.
This is what Matt Cutts has to say about duplicate content: http://searchengineland.com/googles-mat … mmy-167459
The biggest issue is competing with yourself in search results - that's easily fixed by using a different title on the duplicate, so you can rank the same content for two completely different sets of keywords.
The only way to make your site super site search friendly is to host your blog on blogger. Have you not noticed, blogger blog get index faster that the most optimized wordpress, joomla or drupal website.
I have around 15 Blogspot websites and probably around 15 Wordpress websites. I've seen people say this, but I've never seen any real proof it's true. Plus, Wordpress has thousands of other options which make it much easier to optimise for both SEO and social media.
I agree with WryLilt, I have never seen any evidence that Blogger blogs are indexed faster.
It's a common myth, people assume that because Google owns Blogger, it must show favouritism towards Blogger blogs. Google is not that stupid - it knows that a lot of Blogspot bloggers are rank amateurs with poor content, so if Google were to favour them on principle, without regard for content, the search engine would lose all credibility with users.
I actually can't remember the last time I saw a Blogger site in search results anywhere near the top - and I Google a LOT (Google Suggest addict). I have seen Blogger results ranked below Yahoo Answers in some cases.
Really good point. Google would be shooting themselves in the foot if they favored Blogspot. I only use Blogger to play around, never have seen it as having any potential as far as traffic and money.
