Is ok display subcategory and parent category name on title, or just display main category name on items ?

In deep ( display main category name on items ) :

Right now have, 10 categories and 60 subcategories, the problem is that there are duplicate subcategories titles eg :

(subcategory ) Abstract, It appears in five categories.

but all titles are : Abstract - Image Gallery | Mysite.com

when I think it should be :

Abstract - Maincat-1 - Image Gallery | Mysite.com

Abstract - Maincat-2 - Image Gallery | Mysite.com

Abstract - Maincat-3 - Image Gallery | Mysite.com

etc..

↥ that is good?

Best Regards

What is the good practice to add products in an eCommerce website?

1. Upload the products on the same domain?

2. Or upload the products on a different domain and fetch them from to category and product pages?

Which is the best practice and why?

Google showing ME the wrong domain.

Years ago I switched domains and set up 301 redirects. All seemed fine.

But recently I noticed that Google is now serving me the old domain. But only when I'm logged in as me. If I'm in another account or anonymous, I get the right domain.

Why am I getting this weird personalisation?

Back to normal. So I suspect it was something in the account search history related to my domain, and it took a while for the personalisation to update after I deleted those searches.

Hi

My news website is index in Google News Hindi and showing news there, but after 5-10 min. it disappears from Google News, while other website's news remain for a long time.

One more thing only 2-3 news from my website appears in Google News, even we are posting 100 news on daily basis related to all latest news, breaking news, sports, business, technology and all.

Hi all, I have a client with a website in the UK. He's asked if we can clone the website but focus it for the Northern Irish market. It's a dot com website anyway, so should this be pulling up in Northern Ireland anyway, what with it being part of the UK?

Hi,
So glad I found this group, as I have some dumb SEO questions! First one--SEMRush site audit says nearly all my articles have multiple H1 tags. It even says some have 12 H1 tags. I did not add any H1 tags to posts. Wordpress uses the title as H1, so I just use H2. SEMRush showed me the source code for one of my posts that it says has two H1s, where Wordpress is making a class out of the title and thus making another H1. This is over my head. Don't know why a post I just wrote has "twelve" H1s. How can I fix this issue, or is it even worth fixing? Thanks!
