  1. Can you please let me know your thoughts on if we should do no index on tags and categories for a site with 100-200 blog posts?

  2. Should we add No index for categories? I mean in Yoast SEO setting, should I turn on indexing or keep it off for catogaries?

  3. Thank you for the advice, Neil.

    But I have a concern. You recommend to add categories. However, your website blog posts don't have them. Why?

  4. Thanks for the video. What about domain/blog/category/post-name? Is that structure ok? I usually try to be no more than 3 levels deep for SEO but that would be 4 and seems unavoidable unless you don't include the blog page in the url. domain/category/post-name the category page can still have an internal link to the blog page. In my case, the blog page will be optimized for its keyword which includes blog. Like if you where creating a blog site for whiskey. whiskydude dot com/whiskey-blog/irish-whiskey/jameson or something like that. In this case there are three options. Make the home page also the blog page which I don't prefer, include the blog, category and post in the url or don't include the blog page in the url. Which is best for SEO? Please advise. Thanks

  5. Great vid! Under 1000 posts go with blog/post-name if you're going to have a team of people writing posts go with /category/post-name or category/sub-category/post-name

  6. Its quite a task to keep an explanation short and yet clearly understood. And you managed to do that very well. Keep it up. You explain to the point and effectively so.

  7. What structure should a small blog follow? Let say I am building a micro-niche site less than 5 category and 20 items. ¿How should I go about to create a navigational menu? Thanks

  10. Neil I have a query, please try to solve it..
    I have a website, I purchased domain+hosting in April, and I started using it, and after a week I met with an accident, so I cancel my hosting and get refund for it. After 2 months, I restared my website, purchase hosting and started from scratch on a same domain.
    Do you think the above described situation affects my website SEO?
