Perhaps support can help you with a backup?

Hi Loes,
I'm waiting to hear back from support . Lately they seem to be taking much longer to respond than in the past. So in the meantime I figured I would reach out to the community and see if someone had a solution. Have you ever had support help you with a back up? Is it at all complicated on our side? Do we lose any of our theme settings?

Yes, I lost a complete site through a bad plugin, they restored it, but my last post back then was gone, so nowadays I write my posts in notepad, so I back-up my latest posts

It's recommended that plug-ins be kept to a minimum, but they're often recommended for so many different issues and I just wonder how people pick, choose and manage to keep the

I agree with Dave, it depends on your needs. I personally have more than 9, but I do try to deactivate any ones that I'm not using often to keep it to a minimum.

If there's lots of plugins for the same thing, e.g. "click to tweet", I just try them a few out and pick the one that I prefer to work with.

Hope that helps

This all depends on your needs and what you're trying to do with your website. I have 9 plugins that I use. From managing related content to image optimization to spam shield and seo plugin.

So many plug-ins. how do you choose?

Search Engine Optimization

Should tags and categories be set to no index so that Google does not think there is duplicate content throughout the website?

No, you don't need to do this. Google is smart enough to tell the difference. I rank for keywords perfectly fine and sometimes even the tag and category pages.

Ok thanks

With so many plug-ins necessary to run an effective site, I really don't know how people keep them to a minimum. I have several 404 pages that I want to re-direct, but I don't

This is how I fix Error 404 Page Not Found errors

Hi Marion,

Awesome! It delivered 3 bad host results that I was able to fix.
I do have a few questions.

1. When I first entered my website and clicked search, I got a message back that the http://www.happyhomeincome is being redirected to http://happyhomeincome.com. So, I had to do the search without the www.
Will the fact that it's redirecting negatively impact my site in any way?

2. Google Analytics shows several 404 pages that did not come up in the report. I am not sure why they didn't. I know some of them are pages that don't exist anymore because either I changed the title of the article or removed the page from the category menu.

3. Would you be so kind as to advise on how to avoid creating these dreadful 404 pages in the future and also how I could remove these current 404 pages so they don't negatively impact my Google rankings?

I am attaching an example of Google analytics report of some of my 404s

Appreciatively,
Josh

Google asks you to verify both with and without www. then asks you to choose your preference. Hardly anyone uses www. anymore so choosing without the www for Google is the way to go.

To prevent future Error 404s you can delete URLs from any comments you receive and always use copy and paste from your browser's address bar when you add a new link. The latest version of WordPress has a URL checking feature when you add new links to help avoid the 404s.

Got it!
How I get rid of the 404 pages that are in the image I uploaded in the previous message? They are mostly pages without content

To get rid of backlinks linking to non-existing pages you could contact the website where the links is coming from. If that doesn't work then find a re-direction plugin to do the job for you.

The 404s are not backlinks. They are pages on my own site. Mostly posts where I changed the name of the title to make it more SEO

Also some of the 404s were a part of my home page menu, but I recently changed the home page menu categories and the old pages became 404s.

You need to resubmit your sitemap to Google when you make changes like that.

This might help you out
