Tips on Google Hosting SEO
Hosting companies have their own set of problems that they deal with on a regular basis. One of the major problems occurs when their sites are unavailable during the time frame when the GoogleBots are looking to crawl them. Webmasters are often searching for answers and fixes to address problems like these because they can affect such a wide range of customers. Below are few of the issues that may affect users as well as web hosting companies:
Availability Issues-This is a common problem with web hosting companies. These are known as crawl errors. They can be due to a variety of reasons such as overloaded servers, DNS issues and content distribution networks.
GoogleBots Blocked-This happens more often than anyone realizes and is often attributed to things like the content management system used on the site or misconfiguration of the firewall. Though it’s important to have protection in place, sometimes the same technology that protects us from hackers and viruses can also block GoogleBots.
Wildcard DNS Setups-At times, it may be in your best interests to give each account its own subdomain, but since this can inadvertently cause duplicate content issues, more and more hosting companies are configuring their website not to use them.
Invalid SSL Certs-In order for SSL Certificates to be valid, they must match the site name. An expired or misconfigured SSL Cert is an easy fix. However, learning of the problem may be more challenging. Google does try to warn webmasters by sending a message through Webmaster Tools. Some web browsers will also warn the user of an invalid SSL cert.
Spam & Malware-A few hosting companies are geared toward hosting sites that are known to be spammy or malware distributors. In order to protect users, hosting companies who display all the signs of being involved in this are sometimes blocked by Google.
