Hello crew,

I've just been contacted by a business who are doing some last minute fretting about next Friday's Mobile Update.

They have a WMT warning that 87% of the pages have critical mobile usability errors.

Some info is as follows:

- The site has tens of thousands of desktop pages.

- Mobile users get directed to m.domain.com but this is one page capture page. There are no mobile version URL's of the main site.

- Google has indexed the m.domain.com page but does not show it when you are on mobile (if you search for company name).

- The site is missing rel="alternate" media="screen" tags, but correctly redirects mobile devices.

Question: If we add the rel="alternate" media="screen" on all pages to the one page m.domain.com will this clear the issues (as we are providing a mobile friendly page)?

Thanks in advance...

Sorry, not been online for the past 5 hours!  between parents evening and other commitments..

If the web guy is good, he should be able to convert the current site pretty quick as most sites are usually templates (in most cases)!... :)

Hello, I am releasing a new product shortly and had a question about SEO optimization. We would like to include CRM in the title of the product. Would it be more beneficial to separate the product name and "CRM" with a space or can we join it as one word? Ex. "ProductCRM" or "Product CRM"

Does relevant linking to others diminish page rank? I did a search on this and many thinks they do, but some don't. The most logical answer is yes they do, but it is made up somewhere else, and more.

It seems counterintuitive to diminish page rank, since the search engines want to give relevant results.  Relevant linking helps this.

Ive just had a manual spam action revoked on a site after several reconsideration requests, I got the message from Google saying it was revoked however under manual actions for the site I still see this message:

"Unnatural links from your site
Google detected a pattern of unnatural, artificial, deceptive, or manipulative outbound links on pages on this site. This may be the result of selling links that pass PageRank or participating in link schemes"

and the PR hasnt gone back up to waht it was before which it usually does once the manual spam action has been revoked, anyone know whats going on here?

thanks

1. Suppose one website has many pages. Few pages, send the signal to (thru hyperlinking the text) main (home) page. Is it negative SEO.
2. The text which we are giving hyperlinks can be same anchor text or it should be different for different pages.

Totally confused. Google page rank is dead, Domain authority is not indication of ranking. Then what should we check by which we can come to know - OK now our website will rank well
