Background information

Some information identical front away: Moving WordPress from the old to the new web space of V server has proven to be very problematic due to some individual configurations. After we had to face greater difficulties, we finally decided to make a completely new installation of WordPress on the V-Server. A new installation and the move to a new hosting provider brings numerous advantages, but also the cause in this case, that a comparison with the measured values ​​from the last item is limited.

The reasons:

Re-installation of WordPress plugins, some have been removed, which speeds up the loading time of the back-ends.
The database has been cleaned. Among other things, thousands of SPAM comments were removed.

The configuration of the Apache web server is not identical. Some modules that were not available with the old provider are now installed in the standard (and vice versa), which also leads to a different performance.

Contaminated sites were removed automatically, including for example non-deleted files or settings of plugins that have been installed over time and uninstalled again.

Does the domain name affect SEO and SMM?

Let us try to understand how the domain name can affect SEO and SMM, and analyze the factors that affect the success of the domain. We offer you to become a famous author’s translation of Western experts Spencer Yao. The original article can be found here.
Whether to choose a domain based on keywords?

Over the years, SEO-optimizers and marketers looking for and buying domains whose names consist of keywords. This was done in order to increase the CTR-clicks, as well as to get a higher ranking in various search engines such as Google, Yahoo, etc. Let’s look at this strategy to understand, is still whether it is effective.

Many SEOs would gladly have purchased an exact match domains (Exact Match Domain – EMDs) keywords of their business. This means that if you, for example, traded green lights, your EMD-domain would be «zelenayalapma». It turns out that the advocates of domain selection strategy based on keywords would gladly have purchased a domain. At EMD-domains has three advantages:

  • The presence of the key phrases in the domain name of the site promotes the first position.
  • The presence of the key phrases in the domain name helps connect other webmasters.
  • The key phrase in the anchor text contributes to site traffic.

However, in light of recent events on updating features Google (especially concerning search technologies) strategy to choose EMD-domains are not as successful as it was before. Here are just some statistical evidence of this:

High Position’s study found that “the average index ranking EMD-domain fell from 13.4 to # # 26.6″, and “average index 10s best domains decreased from 3.2 to # # 11.9″. SEOmoz data revealed that the correlation of EMD-domains fell from the position of 0.34 in 2010 and 0.18 in 2012.

Given all the recent changes that have begun to gain momentum in 2010, notably in Google Algorithm Update for EMD-domains, many SEOs believe that in the future, EMD-domains and other domains (in whose foundations were laid by the policy of keywords) will be even less effective.

However, this does not mean that you should avoid or refuse the choice of domain keywords, but you must remember that these domains will not be the key to success. Therefore take note that the presence of the keywords in the domain should not be the deciding factor when choosing.

What if the domain transfer went “wrong” …?

What are the consequences of the transfer in violation of the domain registrar? Who is right and who is wrong, if in the end domain is completely renewed, and the transaction is completed?

We got a message from a user-SOS and a concrete example would sort out the problem. Re-registration of the domain has always been and will be a prerequisite for any transaction Telderi.

If the buyer is penalized for a foul Telderi and despite the warnings of the system confirms the transaction, the responsibility is passed on to him. For transactions, passed in violation of the script system no claims are accepted. (the rules). When the arbitration system detects that the domain can not be renewed, the transaction is recognized torn. User: “We have agreed with the seller to transfer the domain Ru shove. I understand all the risks and take responsibility if something happens to the domain. Possible we will deal without renewal? ”

Even in such cases, when users agree among themselves about “Pouchet” domain Telderi not the guarantor. If the domain is not reissued the present owner can fully regain domain Based on these risks can not be held Telderi guarantee the safety of such transactions.

Therefore, in such situations, the transaction will also be recognized ripped through the fault of the parties to the transaction, which did not fulfill the required conditions for transferring the domain.

And the actions contrary to the instructions violate the security of the transaction. Follow the rules!
