"That is kind of a normal change on a website. The themes of a website change over time, that’s not something that I’d say you’d need to shy away from or create separate sites if you want to touch upon a new topic. [...]
The normal advice on growing a site is something you might want to look at is how people react to your content. Do they still understand what your pages are about? Can they understand which things belong together? Those kind of more general marketing user experience type of questions."
"Google takes action on mobile sites that trick users into being redirected to an unwanted website from the mobile search results page. [...]
Sneaky redirects are never a good thing, and Google has penalized websites for directing users to a site they do not expect to go to from the search results. The same for those using a mobile device and searching on Google’s mobile results. Google wants the user to land on a site they expect to land on based on the snippet Google shows."
"He said it makes him 'angry' that they do not link out and calls it "stupid" because they are likely fearful that the link may hurt them for some reason. The internet is made up of links and not linking out is not how the internet works, he explained."
"If you use a sitemap that is not autogenerated to automatically include all the URLs on the site, then Google will consider the pages that are in the sitemap as more important and Google will crawl it sooner. [...]

"We have improved the integration of Google Anaytics with SEOprofiler. Some customers who had multiple Google Analytics profiles and multiple Google accounts had problems with GA accounts that automatically disconnected. [...]
You can use multiple Google Analytics accounts with SEOprofiler. No more re-connecting when switching projects. Despite of Google restrictions, you can now connect more than 25 profiles of the same Google Analytics account."
