Marketing and Social Networks / Re: What is better to use in url, dash or hypen?

The original poster mistakenly thought that "hyphen" was the name for an underscore (_). They were asking whether a dash (hyphen) - or an underscore _ was better to use. The answer is that search engines consider dashes to separate words, which should be considered separately, while underscores join words into single terms. Thus hot-coffee is treated as two words "hot" and "coffee", while hot_coffee is treated as a single term hot_coffee.

What's the difference between a dash - and a hyphen -? Did you mean underscore _?
There's no big difference between a dash & a hyphen, but a hyphen(--) is used to join two or more words together and a dash (-) separates words in statement. It's better to use dash or hyphen rather than underscore in URL to make it SEO friendly.
Marketing and Social Networks / Re: Importance of social networks in seo

With the significant development of social media, facebook, instagram or twitter have gained higher popularity among people all over the world. So I think integrating social media channels with your online store can definitely boost website traffic and increase GG ranking.

I agree with you and these networking sites are the best way to get genuine traffic for your business which increases the conversation ratio and searching engine ranking position through such a relevant traffic.
I have started off-page activities with Business listings, directory listing and going to make profile links of my company website. Is there anything I'm missing for a new website?
Marketing and Social Networks / Re: do follow social bookmarking website list

There are so many useful social bookmarking resources these days, but it essential that to be aware from doing bad SEO through SB task. According to me, one should do SB 20 to 25 per day, don't so SB continuously & prefer to so directory submission or article submission techniques for better result and prefer to use single keyword in title then use other keywords in tags.
Social media is the best source to get the relevant traffic on the website, even the shared links are nofollow, but google considers those links as useful social signals if people had conversations and shared so many times. I have found social media affects website's position in search listings, while your social profiles have useful content.
Web Hosting Help and Troubleshooting / URL Redirect not working?
« Last post by myrrh on February 01, 2017, 02:35:28 PM »
I tried creating a 301 redirect in cPanel and it doesn't work. At least not yet - it's been about an hour now. How long does it take for a redirect to work after creating it? I thought it is usually fairly quick.

When trying to go to the URL, I get a 404. It's a WordPress site. Is there something I need to do like edit the .htaccess?

Totally agree with MrPhil, I also feel that Search Box Optimization is Black hat technique. Whether somehow you have optimized your brand or blog for particular term and got result in google suggestion, if visit duration is low and bounce rate is high on your web page, google concludes that search users are not getting useful information and your website may penalizes.
Web Designer's Help and Resources / Re: Calling all .htaccess experts!

I finally got to the bottom of this: Lunarpages servers (or at least, mine) are misconfigured. If your URI starts with a real directory, it skips the .htaccess files in higher level directories, and goes directly to that directory. So, it never goes through /.htaccess, where most of my stuff (including IP deny lists, hotlink protection, and most of the URL rewriting) lives. I got around it by introducing virtual (fake) directories at the top level of all my URIs, and these are translated (rewritten) to real directories in /.htaccess (which everything goes through now). I'm still checking it out, but it seems to be working properly now, except that I still need to check if there are any cases where lower level .htaccess files are still being skipped.

I'm very disappointed with LP for making me go through all of this nonsense, all the while insisting that I must be doing something wrong in my .htaccess files. They clearly don't know what they're doing. I hope this experience will be helpful to others who are having problems getting their .htaccess files to work right -- consider that they may be skipped over if your URI starts with a real directory!
All these servers will actually be upped to the 2.4.x version of Apache, as they no longer use ChiliASP.
