How do i get to know where the leads are coming from? is it through adwords, seo or any other method? need to know about each specific lead not just the number of leads from each platform. 

Adwords tells me how many conversions but which ones not. is there anything i can do to track seo leads as well? 

any software? paid or free?

Question: Has anyone noticed duplicate pages which are managed by canonical link elements appearing in the SERPs over the past month? 

I work on a number of e-commerce sites, and noticed dynamic duplicates (such as filtered pages, ones which include path parameters, even http/https variants - generally any ugly pages that should be managed with canonicals) appearing in site:example.com searches. At first I thought it was limited to one site, but I've since noticed in on at least 6. 

It almost appears that either a) canonicals aren't working properly as of about a month ago, or b) pages managed by canonicals are showing in the serps but aren't actually impacting performance. 

There have a been a number of updates recently which we suspect might have impacted pages managed by canonicals. I'm keen to see if other people have noticed anything before we go all meta-directivey and start noindexing the lot. 

Have you seen anything similar? 

Thanks,

Simon

Hey Everyone! I am really needing some advice on why to do with 2 websites I own.

Website 1 is PA 35 DA 23 (3 years old)
Website 2 is PA 32 DA 19 (1.5 years old)

Both are under Google Manual Penalties that after several attempts haven't been removed.


I haven't tried in months to be reconsidered but I wanted to know what your opinions were on what I should do with these sites.


They make a little bit of money through Amazon Affiliates (basically enough to pay for the domains and hosting).

Should I just hold onto them? Would they be any good for a PBN? Is there any hope of coming off penalty (is there a company that can get a website of penalty)?

A lot of content and work has went into these sites so I am not sure what my options are.

What would you do?

Thanks I'm advance for your help!

I am a beginner in SEO. I was assign to on page optimize a built website about Travel & Tours. But I don't know what to do. I've read some SEO Articles and I get it but the thing is I don't know what to do because the site has its content. Now I am using Google Keyword Planner to search for keywords and I am getting low competent keywords in paste it on notepad. But again the thing is I don't know where to start and what I will do. And I am not good in typing long content.

Just reading in blog(.)leadsquared(.)com/mobilegeddon-where-do-you-stand-a-month-after-the-roll-out/ 

What does the bold statement means?

Changes are crawled real-time
Even though April 21st was touted as a very important date, the crawling is real-time, so if you are for some reason, still not mobile-friendly, make the changes, and it would be crawled and updated as and when you update it, and resubmit for indexing, or whenever Google indexes it next.

Hi everyone,

I have a question related to rel=publisher tag. Currently, my site has <a href="https://plus.google.com/104654960476218546732" rel="publisher"> tag but I have realized that this G+ URL is of my company's profile and not the G+ page URL.

Now, I will be using this URL https://plus.google.com/b/111912621895766850437/dashboard/overview But would it be correct to use this URL?

Does boosting a blog post on Facebook help with how that post ranks in Google? Im just wondering if things like more likes, shares and traffic to it would send out stronger signals to Google about it and help it rank higher...

May I ask how Domain Authority works? I've read it on moz but I am a bit confused. It is true that the score of your domain authority will determine on what keywords with number of volumes will be use?

What is the best Online SEO page analyzer that is free and has no limit? Because some that I've used has limits and need to sign up and pay before using the full feature and some are not producing accurate results. For example even though I have content on meta description with 104 characters including spaces, but still shows "No meta description".
