301 Redirect PageRank Dilution Myth Resurfaces

I'm full of back and forth this week, as Google yet again makes the point that 301 Redirects don't dilute PageRank. And yet again, a number of webmasters are keen to decry Google's message-bearers - and they have yards of stats to "prove" it. I'm kind of in the 'Google's right, but I don't think they're being wholly accurate' camp, which is full of marshmallow, twinkly stars and the like.

HTTP to HTTPS Website Update Required Due To Chrome 62

2017-09-07T11:43:06+10:00Categories: SEO, Technology & Development|Tags: , , , , , |

I want to help people deal with the upcoming Google Chrome update. If your website is served on HTTP, you need to ensure it is served via HTTPS by October 17th 2017. Google Chrome v62  will mark URLs served via HTTP as "Not Secure" when a user enters data into a form. In Incognito mode, the URL will be marked as Not Secure when the page is loaded. This will affect your website's conversions, revenue and lower the user's trust in your brand / site / service / product. #SEO #HTTPS #Redirects #SiteMigrations #WebsiteSecurity #DataPrivacy

Google Gives Incorrect 301 Redirect Advice

2023-12-05T18:32:54+11:00Categories: SEO|Tags: , , , , , |

Wow. Google gave some incorrect 301 redirect advice, which you can read in this post. It centres around redirecting 404s and speaks from a Google perspective, rather than a webmaster / user perspective.  If you would like to discuss the ways you should implement 301 redirects and the impact not doing them could have on your web business, please feel free to contact me. #SEO #Redirects #SiteMigrations #TechnicalSEO
