According to the seo website analysis I need to have shorter urls to get better indexing. I didn't think that mattered but what do I know?
To do this I would have to delete and wait a few weeks to be de-indexed and change url and publish again.
Is it worth it?
With all due respect, that kind of project sounds like a senseless idea.
Stacie, the problem I think would straighten itself in a few days to months but deleting your hubs and de-indexing them from G searches will make you lose any advantage you have gained from the aging of your hubs and SERPs and it is like starting out afresh... I am not the expert here ..but even with my limited knowledge I am left wondering why did you even think of this?
I fully agree with WE on this.
it was not my idea..as I said,the seo website I used analyzed my hubs and suggested that the urls were too long.I never heard of that before.
I am glad ..... I was wondering if you even considered such a project... .. my traffic has taken a hit since panda 3.3 but it is slowly coming back .. I hope it does for you too. Best wishes to you.
SEO websites are guessing, although with slightly better statistics and research. NO ONE knows what Google really uses in its algorithms and even if they did, it would probably change in six months. It's always been a fight between the black hat SEO experts and the Google algorithm.
If you delete and re-create your hubs you lose all the backlinks to them PLUS all the age they've built in Google. SO not worth it.
I agree that nobody really knows how Google does things, and they're changing things recently on such a consistent basis that it's impossible to keep up with it, even by those, like me, that have been making a living online for about 12 years.
You didn't describe what 'long' means, so it's hard to comment on whether it's even close to being accurate.
Changing them, in my opinion, would be the worst thing you could do. Keep one thing in mind: if SEO websites were so accurate and knowledgeable, they wouldn't be an SEO website, they would be in an online business making really big money.

I have checked a few of my articles over the course of a week, not all of them but most of the popular ones, and I noticed that when I put them in Google search they only show up through another link such as Pinterest...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
