I have a website in a very competitive market and have done as suggested by some on this forum: read until your eyes hurt. Well, they do – believe me! After getting tired of waiting for my website programmer to complete seemingly easy tasks, I took over and now use FrontPage 2000 to do all the programming.
A few questions:
#1 Concerning internal links on my website: should I use the full URL:
[mysite.com...] or just pageone.html for the internal link?
#2 As an ecommerce site, I have an SSL Cert. When I first took over as web programmer last year, for some unknown reason I made some internal links "Https" to regular & store product pages. Upon being told this was unnecessary and potentially problematic – I changed all the links to Http. Now, almost all my GG indexed pages are supplemental, dating back to Feb 2005, few are dated in 2006, and many are Https. Is it possible I have been penalized for duplicate content and my new pages are sandboxed?
#3 I must mention that my sales volumn is very low, but I am spidered nearly every day by the Googlebot. My main keywords result in page 1 to 4 on GG and I do have customers "finding me" via a search on my keywords.
Thank you for your time. Sorry for the verbosity.
