SEO Update: Back On Page 1 for Google SERPs (between #6 and #8)

Well, good news...

Just checked a number of browsers set to the US region of Google , NCR

Code:
https://www.google.com/ncr

unix.com was back on the first page, between #6 and #8.

Will be interesting to see if we can make it back to our highest #4 ranking in 2019.

Google Webmaster Tools (GWTs) and shows the SERP ranking are on the rise again.

Google SERP now holding steady at 6 and 7 of 134,000,000 results.

Was 5 for a few hours a day or so ago.

I doubt we will get back up to 4 (our highest on Google).

We are still #2 on Bing (but Bing refers a small fraction of the traffic compared to Google). We are actually #1 on Bing for a week or so recently (above Wikipedia), but it dropped back down to #2.... LOL

If I had time, I could increase the SERP ranking, but my time to work on SEO is limited due to the time demands of coding new features.

I did almost 380 to 400 search checks on google(for common unix/bash questions) and TRUST me many results came on NO-1 from it(though many of them after Stack exchange or SO to be honest). I was creating a matrix of hits and results but power cut happened and my system ran out of battery Smilie

Else I would have published results here, will try again later this weekend if I get time and post here. NO DOUBT we have improved in this criteria, fingers crossed for betterment of forums.

Thanks,
R. Singh

Hey Ravinder!

Thanks for the SEO research.

The biggest changes I made recently were:

Fixed the meta data for the threads and the posts.
  • Reactivated the "showposts" function in threads.
  • Fixed the meta (but not completely) in the man pages.
  • Fixed (bandaid fixed only) a redirect issue in our DragonByte SEO PHP code.

TODO:
  • Fix meta on mobile.
  • Fix meta on all man pages (descriptions are too short).

Before, there was some fancy script which tried to do all the meta data in one single global page. That did not work; so I changed it to do the meta based on the page, and it works better, but not yet perfect.

It is on my TODO list to fix the remaining meta, but have been busy with the badging system.

Update: Forgot to mention:
  • Added a lot of HTML 5 tags and deleted obsolete obsolete HTML tags. This is still a WIP.

I checked (again) and it seems like we lost 70% of our Google indexed links starting in March 2018. So far, I do not know what caused this drop: https://www.unix.com/members/1-albums215-picture904.png As mentioned, I have done a lot of checking, and we did not make any changes in March of......

Over 95 percent of our web site traffic somes from Google search referrals, and less than 1 percent from Yahoo search referrals. We submit site maps daily to both Yahoo and Google. Any idea why Google is so strong and Yahoo is so weak?... Web Development
