    Understanding Page and Section Breaks in Pages (#1736)

    When working in Pages it’s important to understand both page break and section breaks. Here I have a blank word processing document in Pages. These things only really apply to word processing documents, not page layout documents like brochures and flyers and things like that. So I have a blank document here and I can insert some text. Let me just type the word one here on the first page. I can insert any other text that I want. Some blank lines, anything. Now here under Insert I have both Page Break and Section Break. So page break is pretty simple. You insert that and it jumps to the next…

    Paragraph and Line Spacing in Pages (#1574)

    So let’s talk about line spacing and paragraphs spacing in Pages. I see this a lot when people are using word processors. They want to have some division between their paragraphs. So they put a blank line between the paragraphs. For instance the paragraphs would really be like that but they just add the extra line in. So every paragraph here has an extra line. But that’s not the best way to do it. Let me show you the best way. Say I have no extra lines between any of these paragraphs. I’m going to select them all and go to Format. Under Format I can go under Spacing here…

    Using Text Columns In Pages (#990)

    Hi, this is Gary with MacMost.com. Let’s look at using Columns in Pages. I’m using Pages version 5 and we’re going to take a look at Columns.

Of course, this is going to be a single column of text.

    Does a site rank better if it has a lot of indexed pages?

    Today’s question comes from New York. Leah asks, “Does a website get a better overall ranking if it has a large number of indexed pages?” So I wouldn’t assume that just because you have a large number of indexed pages that you’ll automatically get a higher ranking. That’s not the case. It is the case that if you have more pages that have different keywords on them, then you have the opportunity where they might be able to rank for the individual queries that a user has. But just having more pages doesn’t automatically mean that you’ll be in good shape or that you’ll get some sort of ranking boost.…

    SEO Tips to Optimize Crawl Budget: How to Optimize it | SEO COURSE 2020 【Lesson #40】

    One of the concepts that is rarely discussed in the SEO world is the term “crawl budget”, that is a value that represents the number of pages that a search engine scans on a site, generally with reference to the 24 hours. Since Google does not like to waste resources of its servers, it will prefer to spend its time and performance to scan content that it believes to be of quality. Evidently Googlebot will assign a larger crawl budget to a site that it likes, while it will reduce it in case of a spam or problematic website. How do you increase the crawl budget? Trust : if we…

We’re going to give you a seed page and have exercises and– sets of pages to crawl set up so that seed page will work well. For a real web crawler, this is a big challenge. And they don’t start with just one seed page; they start with a set of many seed pages that are selected in different ways. Some may be found by hand, by people identifying them as good seed pages, some may be the results of previous…
