Hi guys,

After a few months since my account was deactivated, I managed to re-subscribe yesterday, and with the help of the site support to recover my old website and it

You have been given some fantastic suggestions Diana. I know what you're going through as I have to do the same for several of my websites after a lengthy break. Please write a blog and let us know how you went after implementing the suggestions given. All the best. Jim


Hi Jim,

Nice to hear from you. In my case, the site has been dormant for almost six months, and is still connected to Google Analytics, and the sitemap is still displayed.

Therefore, it was only a matter of time before the values ​​of the posts in the site speed insights appeared.

Of course, now I have to update each article individual, and ask to re-indexing them.

But this is my case. I don't know for how long your websites have been inactive? Anyway, I wish you to solve this issue in the easiest way.

Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend.

Greetings,
Diana.

Oh Diana, Stop it!! Hahaha

I don't know about any of that.

I am indeed that "quiet, shy boy" you remember.

You can actually run both the "old" and "new" Google Analytics at the same time.

Plus, I have 2 sites that I still use the "old" Google Analytics on, without any issues.

I'm probably the worst person to ask about Analytics to be fair, LOL.

I know there are those who study every little intricacy of their stats, and therefore they love the additional information that the new version provides.

I've always been a "Am I receiving traffic? Am I getting sales?" type of person.

If I can say "yes" and "yes" I leave it at that.

I'm sure there are many wondrous ways I can improve my site performance and statistics if I pay more attention and actually try to learn how to use GA properly, LOL.

But for me, it's always been about producing content.

I would say that you can track your stats with the current version of GA, and you're happy with it, stick with it.

I know there will be a time when it's out with the old and in with the new, but until then I'm happy to stick with what I know.

Hi Diana,

The advice you've received is great, Lily's absolutely nailed it.

The aim is to show Google that you're now "serious" and you're going to may a go of this website.

Initially, you'll want to make a few changes/updates to your published articles.

These don't have to be huge, sweeping changes, as long as the content is still relevant.

An image, a video, a few internal links, an external link to an authority website in your niche, a few comments, etc. These are all viewed as updated content.

Remember, Google (and the other search engines view your post in its entirety, so even a few comments on the post will be viewed as additional content).

If the posts aren't relevant, i.e. it's not an evergreen subject, then you may require an overhaul of the content.

Changing the published date isn't as important as it once was, and I would only do this if you undertake a major overhaul of an article, e.g. change at least 30% of the content.

Google is intelligent enough to understand that content has been updated, even if it's just one word.

As others have suggested, make sure your site is connected to Google Search Console, and your sitemap is submitted.

You can the request indexing individually with each article, as you refresh/update them.

In keeping with the theme of "showing the search engines that you're serious" you should also look to add new content.

How long is it since a new article was added to the site?

You can then place internal links in your new content to the already published content, and vice versa.

The main aim with a site that has gone dormant is that you'll need to almost start again in terms of regularly updating the site.

However, results in terms of rankings and traffic MAY come quicker, as long as you add "fresh" content regularly.

Partha

great insight as usual- read it all prince Partha, thanks for this 👍

Hi Partha,

Thank you for stopping by. I was very surprised to return on the platform and discover that you are the new prince in WA kingdom after which all the ladies faint. I remember you at first when you looked like a "quiet, shy boy".🙂

But considering that you are a gold mine through the valuable information you provide to WA members, I can say that you have rightly earned your place and title.

Returning to my issue, thank you for your time, and the detailed information provided.

My site was still connected to google analytics, i just gave it a refresh, and it was only a matter of time before the values ​​in the site speed insights appeared.

I don't know if I should do something more about it? Also, in the back office, the sitemap is still displayed.

Now, all I have to do is apply your recommendations to make changes to each article, and of course to create as much new content as possible.

As this site has been dormant for almost 6 months, I agree with you that I need to treat it as if it was created now.

I'm a little bit confused about one thing. I understood that it is a new version of Google Analytics. In that case, what should I do? Should I delete the property from the old Google Analytics and reinstall it in the new version, or can I leave it as is?

Your time to clarify my doubts it is much appreciated.🙏 Have an amazing weekend.

Greetings,
Diana.

Lots of great suggestions from knowledgable members. Great seeing you back.

Dan

Hi Dan,

Indeed! Thank you for stopping by, and especially for your warm welcome.

Welcome back, Diana! U hope you get it all sorted out!

Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Thank you very much my old friend. Nice to hear from you. I feel good to be back. The problem is solved, only a few details are missing.

Diana.

I'm glad you're getting settled in, Diana! We are all fine here!🐶😾🐶

I am glad you are all well. Have an amazing week ahead.🤗

I hope you do too, Diana! Stay safe and successful!

Jeff

If you still have your websites connected with Google Analytics along with Google search Console create a new sitemap and re-send so they can scan all your posts and pages along with what Lily and Harry stated.

Wishing you well

Hi guys,

I hope you are all well and have a prosperous week.

I saw that there are many members on the platform who are not native English speakers, but they have

So many languages, So little time to "get" the one down that we use, let alone to conquer another!
They say it gets harder the older you get too.
Also what language specifically were you considering for your referral? Someone may have a specific help for that particular one, you never know, until you know?
Kind of like the way ChrystopherJ taught us to ask questions that are more likely to get a very close match of an actionable answer.

I also PM'd you over a little tiny thing about something else.
This is an interesting post. We are all waiting to see how it goes, and also you asked a very good question!
Suzay

Diane, the solution or suggestions will come from WA administration. Because it will incur translation logistics into different languages which may be very costly.
So the short cost is for the referral to find personal translators or translation for his/her language. That’s my personal opinion. The person can link with Libary.

An interesting and provocative question, Diana. Here's hoping there might soon be a resolution.

Hi Earl,

Thank you. Now let see how soon.

Take care.
Diana.

Great question Diane! I’m following.

Hi Hon,

Hi guys,

Happy Weekend!

After checking the website's broken links, several appeared coming from some comments whose website is no longer on WA platform or active.

I'm glad that you got a solution form your answers, Diana!

Jeff

Hi Diana,

In my point of view, if those comments do not have any links and are relevant to my content, I could leave them. Otherwise, I wouldn't.

Hi Meena,

Thanks a lot for the feedback. The comments are relevant to the post, so I deleted the URL as Trish suggested, and left only the comments.

Enjoy your weekend.
Diana.

That's good! Thank you so much for letting me know about the fix. I appreciate your reply.

You too, have great weekend,

Meena

Thank you, Meena.

Diana.

You're most welcome!

Hey Diana,

You have two options:
1.) Add the Broken Link Checker plugin into your website to make unlinking comment URLs ... or...

2.) From inside your WP Dashboard, go to the post where the comment is... open it in Edit mode... scroll WELL below the Edit window until you find the Comment section... look for the comment where the URL is now broken... follow the screen prints below... Step #1 & 2.

3.) Or... From inside your WP Dashboard, click on Comments, and locate the comment you want to UNLINK the URL from and you will find the same steps as shown in the screen prints Step #1 and 2 below.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi Trish,

Thank you very much for all the solutions. I really didn't like the idea of ​​deleting them.☺ Have a great weekend.

Hugs~
Diana.

If the person commenting no longer has their website, then there is no sense keeping the URL. Just make sure the URL really is broken and not just offline because of technical issues... like WA seems to be suffering today. LOL!

Great info there

Thank YOU Estellyn, for letting me know that this helped you too. Much appreciated.

At the comments in question, the websites no longer exist at all. I checked. So, I followed your advice, deleted the URL, and left only the comments.

Thank you, Trish. As always very helpful.😘

As long as you keep removing dead links Google will LOVE you, else Google thinks a site has been neglected. Glad that worked for you Diana... yeaaaah... and Thank YOU for letting me know.

Generally, I check the links once a week. Thank you for your help, Trish. It is much appreciate it!.

Hi Richard,

Thank you very much. It seems that the two plugins Easy Table of Contents and Table of Content Plus are the most used. I appreciate your recommendation.

Kind Regards,
Diana.

Hi Diana, you might want to consider "Easy Table of Contents" or "Lucky WP Table of Contents". However, there are plenty out there you can try out. Hope that helps and good luck!

Hi Hon,

Thank you for your suggestions. I will consider them.

Greetings.
Diana.

I guess it didn't take my comment the first time, so let's try again.

I use the "Table of Contents Plus" plugin. It's easy to set up and FREE!

Hi Diane,

Thank you very much for your recommendation. I saw that it is untested with the new version of WordPress, and I also read that it affects the website speed. You personally do not encounter any inconvenience with this plugin?

Hi - the Dianes are in agreement here! I use Table of Contents Plus with no problems.

😄 Hi Diane,

Thank you very much. I'll give it a try!
