- You do not need Keywords, not used by the search engines. Just tells everyone what the keywords you trying to get.
- Get yourself setup with google analytics and either install its default code or through google tag manager
- As Nige said, if you not done so yet setup your webmaster tools
- Your home page is pretty void of content
- On your inner pages your Header 1's are OK but could be stronger
- Your inner content page content needs sorting: https://www.muddyboots.xyz/New-Zealand/NZ-Nature You have paragraph per line so the strength and depth of the content and keywords is pretty weak in terms of SEO.
- Your sitemap is not really generating anything: https://www.muddyboots.xyz/sitemap-index.xml

Use Google Webmaster tools to check your robots.txt configuration, it will tell you what is accessible or not.

The other issue is, you've moved your site but Google doesn't know this, and will still have all the original pages indexed. What you needed to do was setup 301 redirects for all the old site URLs, in Wordpress you would do this with a plugin, now you would have to edit the .htaccess file on the server and add the redirections manually - you can Google how to do that its very simple really - but obviously you will need to know what all of the old URLs were to redirect to for the new pages. At this stage of the game its probably not worth the effort if you don't know the existing URLs now and I would simply fix the robots.txt, then use a sitemap generator site to index your website pages and submit that sitemap URL to Google and the other big search engines.

I don't know what SmugMug qualify as an 'SEO friendly' platform but that sounds like snakeoil bullsh*t to me. SEO is completely irrespective of platform unless you're doing something really wrong - like blocking pages in robots.txt files and not redirecting expired URLs. ;D

Entertainment & Technology / SEO trouble shooting

A few months ago I redesigned my website from a Wordpress installation on a hostgator shared server, to a smugmug hosted website.

It seems that, despite the new website having much more information and tags (pages and galleries and photos themselves have descriptions and keywords), it's next to impossible to find pages on google. In fact, it's probably a bit easier to find a google result for one of the old, now non-existent pages from the previous version of the website.

I suspect I'm being penalised by google in some way in terms of how the move happened. Looking in search console I've got a bunch of "Indexed, blocked by robots.txt" results that started when I moved to SmugMug. I'm wondering if perhaps smugmugs robots.txt is blocking google from accessing the old wordpress pages.

This is just scratching the surface, but I was wondering if anyone is savvy with this stuff who could give me some pointers. I've tried doing search result removal requests for the pages that are blocked by robots.txt. SmugMug seem pretty pants when I have emailed them and asked why their SEO friendly platform is performing so poorly.

Website in question is www.muddyboots.xyz

I would really not bother now outside of Azure and Amazon. The prices scale and having the virtual hosting, data and server management and resources all with the cloud services is soo good, why would you need to use them.
Adobe Cloud is all in Amazon and they did a deal and moving it to Microsofts and Netflix runs on Amazon (And the reason why it took a little while to come to Australia waiting for the Amazon Data centre) and run off all the features.

I'm already tired of hearing about it, literally DNGAF at this point :w00t:

Problem is they told us how great it was going to be, how getting a deal would be the easiest ever. We can take back control of our borders and stop migration from the EU. Now it's everyone who voted leave wants no deal.

Latest is Chancellor Hunt saying £80 billion a year more government debt. Latest migration figures 87 million from EU 235 million from rest of the world. So much for controlling EU migrant workers. Scientists are claiming they are going to lose out on £500 million a year EU grants. Worse for them they are getting people rejected by the home office.

Yep DNGAF, Until it's your income that's being cut, or your family needs medical treatment and there are not enough staff.

All already happening, if your working class male with no family you get f**ked, earn more, pay more taxes to keep more dossers on their fat asses.

The whole country has gone to sh*t. Sure i said that earlier.

I feel exactly the same, my cars have all been 2005 or older, there's simply less to go wrong and far better value for money.

I'm facing the same dilemma with my car too now as it turns out it probably needs timing chain and valve stem seals doing sooner rather than later, I'm hoping I can get another 5-10 years out of it though.
