I wrote this over a year ago now and its still as relevant today as it was then - http://www.paddymoogan.com/2010/12/31/why-knowing-everything-about-seo-doesnt-mean-shit/ - would love to get more opinions and experience
Bit of a disclaimer before you read too far and get angry with the lack of “real” SEO tips -. This post is more about getting SEO done rather than pure SEO. The point being (as the title of this post ...

Hi Paddy, great resource!

Was reading a post of yours about 301 redirects and I wanted to ask you what you think about a tech issue with SEO I run into.

A client of mine has his domain and website running in .ASP CMS, and was built by a not so cooperative company in terms of seo and make tech and code changes.

We want to run the same domain on Wordpress which means that we will copy all the content that is already published on the .ASP website and build a new site on Wordpress.

How can this be done the less painful way in terms of not lose seo authority?

We have no access to the .ASP site's code to apply 301 redirects from the old URLs to the new ones within Wordpress.

I am worried about creating duplicate content and 404 pages but this is the first time I deal with such a situation so, I would be grateful if you shared your opinion if you have experienced a similar situation.

Thank you in advance Paddy for your help.

All the best!

Joanna

Worth keeping an eye on this thread started by +Pierre Far
 
There is a fun "SEO geeks" discussion on Twitter between +Barry Schwartz, +Ann Smarty , +Andy Beard, and +Rishi Lakhani about what it means for a URL to be indexed. For background read Barry's blog post on Search Engine Roundtable ( http://www.seroundtable.com/seo-arguments-14717.html ).

Here is the answer:
1. A page that is not blocked from crawling and has a meta noindex tag will not be shown in the search results. Of course it's not instantaneous as Googlebot has to crawl the page first and we need to process the contents to discover the noindex tag.

2. If you block the crawling of a page using robots.txt, Googlebot will not be able to crawl the page. If that page has a noindex meta tag, we won't know about it because Googlebot is blocked from crawling it (that's an important point!).

3. Pages blocked from crawling may still be shown in the search results because we may discover enough info about them from the Open Directory Project or from other places around the web.

I think that covers all the points under discussion. Any questions?

This is a good reference with more details: http://code.google.com/web/controlcrawlindex/docs/robots_meta_tag.html

Google's Hidden Author Search

Yesterday I found that Google actually has an author search available in the SERPs, but it's hidden. I found a way that you are able to search by topic for any author that is verified through Google+! I also included a bookmarklet for you to use and recorded a screencast (my first) for you. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Also, it's on both Hacker News and Inbound.org. If you like it, please upvote it there!

Big thanks to +Tom Critchlow and +Michael King for their help on the JS. Mentions of +Rand Fishkin and +Danny Sullivan throughout the post too.
There are three key parts that you need to know about: The search query section;; The author's Google+ ID;; The Author's name. Here you see how the query is constructed: As you can see, the qu...
