If so, what does it mean and how do you correct this

No, I have not…sorry.

-Mike

Great. I’ll check it out and thanks so much.

Most welcome :)

Oops I forgot the link to the message I'm getting in Site ]Kit

Possibly a VPN or site blocker on your device?

I do have Express VPN on my computer. why would this be a problem. My other websites get data and I'm only getting this on a new website

It seems like you have connected with analytics using another Google account.

Interesting error, I have never seen it before. It seems like Abie has found a solution.

My page tabs show up fine on a desktop view but they are not visible in mobile view.
I’m perplexed. Any thoughts?
Cheers.
Dan

For all who helped with my menu not showing on mobile I thank you. I had forgotten to tell the theme where I wanted the menu to show. See image

Thanks to all who helped with this...

Have you checked the Appearance > Customize and mobile view? Are they showing there?

You may need to empty the browser cache, refresh and try again. Try URL in a different browser or mobile device.

You can also empty servers cache.
Websites > Site Manager > Details > Sitespeed > Empty site cache

I think I found the problem. For my theme - Digital Marketing Lite, under menus, I didn't click the proper locations for the menu to display.
Once I did that, the menu now shows on mobile as a drop down. Eureka!
Thanks for the nudge...

All seems ok on my iPhone…sorry your having issues.

-Mike

My first thought is to ask what theme you're using and is it mobile friendly?

Rick

Insightful suggestion.

You know that’s a great question. I used the theme to check out some ideas and never checked that. I’ll check it now. My bad.
Thank you

Several people here at WA use Generate Press, which I also use and it's mobile friendly. There are so many but that has turned out great for me. Jay is the one I first heard use it here at WA.

Rick

I just check search console and it tells me the page I'm concerned about is usable on mobile. I'm confused

I can't offer more advice on this issue than that. I would continue asking around. It may be another issue besides your theme.

Rick

Hi, Dan

If you’re talking about your items in the top menu, you have to open the “hamburger” icon, which looks like three horizontal lines.

Frank 🎸

I’m taking about the menu bar. And it doesn’t show when I check the website from my iPhone

It sounds like your theme, as others have said. I use GeneratePress, and it works great with mobile devices!

Dan, I am not sure why. I have no problems with my iPhone not sure which mobile phone you are using. Maybe shut it down and start it back up and try again. Sometimes the tab on mobile are in a different place.

I have the iPhone 12. I’ll give it a try.
Thanks for the idea.

same kind of phone so try it again then tell me where the tab is I will check my iPhone and see where I can help

This is what Frank was talking about see red circle

The only page that shows when I go to my site on my iPhone is my homepage. But unlike my laptop I can’t see the menu bar. It’s fine from my laptop and everything is there when I goto the website through WA. WP is fine. I’m wondering if the theme is mobile friendly as someone mentioned. I’ll look into that later.
Thanks for hanging in there with this.

Yes I found the problem I know what is happening. Your theme Digital marketing lite theme is not mobile friendly thats the problem I want to know why you choose this theme. GeneratePress is a better one and it's mobile friendly. This theme cant see mobile. Is there a way for you to use GeneratePress? Its the fastest theme out there

I’ll have to find another theme. I liked the look of the one I chose. Oh well. Back to the drawing board. Thank you for the advice.

Generatepress is so easy to use. I could whip up your site like this pretty quickly using Generate Blocks to make it yellow. Very easy to use. I am a Premium user of that theme. Its so easy to put it up maybe take about 30 to 45 min to set it up exactly as you want it in the current theme. FYI design is not important content is but GP will work all of use this even the trainers here use it as well.

I’ll look into it. Anything to streamline the process will be helpful.

Can someone explain the difference between Index and Default(Index) in WP Quick edit?

I agree with Richard…it basically means it’s ok for Google Bot to review and Index that post.

-Mike

Hi Dan... There is no difference... default just means that the standard default for our site is to Index the URLs.
:-)
Richard

Nice to know, Richard! Thank you—Merry Christmas to you and yours.

.Crystal clear. Thank you
Merry Christmas.

Can you clarify the latter bit, please?

However, when your website gets indexed, it means that Google found your site, and now is an excellent time to start adding content if you have not already.

However, your posts get indexed, and often days later, down the line, start getting noticed, provided targeted keywords are searchable, and new websites can rank efficiently.

But typically, "authority" for a website starts to get established over time, usually at the 3-6 month mark.

They fluctuate up and down the scale till Google decides where to place them.

Not all posts will get ranked; thus, the recommendation is to keep updating blogs 2 - 3 posts weekly, which is for the foreseeable future.

And just for some clarification.

I hope this helps.

I understand, but I'm asking about The difference between INDEX and Default (INDEX) in QUICK EDIT. Since either can be chosen, I'm wondering what is the difference between them.

You can quick edit posts and pages in your WordPress site's back office, or it could be related to an SEO plugin.? Is that what you mean?

In Quick edit under visibility SEO settings on the right there is a drop downs for indexing. In the dropdown you can choose index or default (Index).
Just curious about the difference .

Here's another image

I don't see a difference between the default and the standard one. However, I could be wrong here.. I dug few resources

This resource may help.

i have several websites. All of then have crap data. Is it best to have a separates account in GA for each website or one main website account with additional properties?

Good question. Abie is right.
Frank makes a good point also.

I'd go with what's best suits you here.

You are well covered here with some excellent guidance. Please let us know if you still have any questions.

-Mike

Hi, Dan

The advantage of having a separate GA account for each property is that if you sell one it’s easier to transfer the data to the new owner.

Frank 🎸

Great point here, Frank!

Thanks, Abie!😎

Merry Christmas! 🎄🎅🎁

I have one GA account (in my personal name) and then all of my websites included as properties. It just seems much more convenient that way.

And only you can decide whether it's best to rewrite or replace your content.

Is one ga account plus properties better then more accounts?
