Content in a forum. Duplicate content

I wanted to ask a question about my forum. I wanted to know if a repeated question is asked daily over the course of a year with multiple users asking the same thing or answering the same thing. For example “yes, it would be healthy to eat vegetables daily.” If this has been said 50 times on my forum would it be considered duplicate content ?

Can multiple users sign up and post repeated questions through the year pertaining to the same topic. For example “how much water should I drink?”

Appreciate any help, thank you 🙏🏼

Why does Chrome show 304 in Response Headers section but 200 in Status code?

Might be a silly question, but I haven’t found any clear answer yet. Why does Chrome show 304 in Response Headers section but 200 in Status code? Why doesn’t it show 304 in Status code (BTW, that is NOT 200 memory cache.)?

If it shows 200 I can’t know it is actually 304 without looking into request detail.

Compared to Firefox (the same request), 304 in status code.

Hide the subfolder from appearing in url

I want to move from www.example.com/_/randomfolder to example.com/randomfolder. It should acces the contents from /_/randomfolder but should show example.com/randomfolder.

What I have tried:

Trial 1

RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$   http://www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$  1 [R=301,L,QSA] RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off RewriteRule ^(.*)$   https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301] 

Problem: it full fills my requirement from /_/randomfolder but should show example.com/randomfolder but affects my main domain example.com it shows nothing, only a 404 page. I want it to show public_html/index.php only.

Trial 2:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d #To load site from  /_/xyz to /xyz  without hcanigng url RewriteRule ^[A-Za-z0-9._]+  /_/%{REQUEST_URI} [L] 

Problem: I have to manually change the address bar from www.example.com/_/randomfolder to example.com/randomfolder, it load contents with or without _ but on first time load its redirects to /_/random folder.

Is it legal to use “VMware Workstation 15 Player” with earning money purpose?

I am planning to open a blog webpage, publish technology-based content on it and make money via blogger earning methods like Google AdSense. The software I mentioned in the title, which is available at here, is just one of the necessities to prepare my content.

However, firstly, I want to be sure whether this kind of usage is legal or not for this software. When I look at the link I added, there is an expression in the form of “The free version is available for non-commercial, personal and home use.”

According to this statement, is it legal for me to use this software as I have stated?

Is opening a blog, publishing technological/educational content on it and earning money via blogger earning methods like AdSense legal?

I am planning to open a blog website and publish technology-based educational content as articles in Turkish language on it. Topics I’ll cover are Microsoft and Linux system administration, cyber security, software, hardware, web, mobile, desktop applications with their usage and much more things like this.

More clearly, for example, I’ll post:

  • What is Active Directory and How to Install it on Windows version x.x.x?
  • How to Configure DNS Server on Ubuntu?
  • What should be considered for cyber security?
  • What are social engineering methods and how to implement them?
  • How to run JavaScript code in C# App? (or it can be complete JavaScript tutorial)
  • What are the differences between USB 2.0 and 3.0?
  • How to change desktop wallpaper on Windows 10?
  • How to change screen brightness on IOS version x.x.x?
  • How to use TeamViewer?

As you guess, for all of these, I need tons of programs, software, tools like VMware, virtual machines like Kali Linux, Ubuntu, Windows Server 2012 or 2016, Windows 8 or 10 and screenshots.

I am planning to use trial, free or non-commercial version of these for preparing my content. My future plan is adding English articles and video contents to my blog. However, I don’t know using the tools, software and programs the way I mentioned with making money purpose is legal.

Any advice would be great.

Should I have a FTC Disclosure (affiliates) for products that I don’t review or promote

Regarding the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines for affiliates.

Do they apply when I don’t review or promote/endorse a product? f.e. I have a page that mentions discount offers (affiliate links) for some products without sharing my opinion about them or giving recommendations, ranking, etc, do I have to include an affiliate disclosure in that case?

sorry for my English.

Are there SEO repercussions of using ::before selector to add content to the page?

I’m working on a website where I don’t have full access to the code. I’m having to use a ::before content selector to add a sub-header.

Are there any known SEO repercussions from doing this? Specifically from Google thinking it is some black hat shenanigans.

I’m not too worried if the search engines aren’t actually able to crawl the text as it isn’t too important from an SEO perspective. But I don’t want Google thinking I’m being sneaky and trying to inject some keywords or something.

Hreflang and canonical problem on session parameters

We have a oxid onlineshop with different domains/subdomains depending on currency and language.

Now we have a problem with hreflang tags, because of parameters

1) the session of the basket between domains is set by ?force_sid=(random string for session id)

2) for different views in categories like ?ldtype=grid&_artperpage=100&pgNr=0&cl=alist&searchparam=&cnid=3ae4a2e1dd7501139.35363255

if the url is accessed without the parameters then the canonical and hreflang tags are correct.

If the parameters are set then the canonical and hreflang tags are wrong.

What are the correct tags for example: www.example.de/category-name/?force_sid=e9k6p7d5dbpcu3s41p22tbll71 ?

We have:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://www.example.de/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="x-default" href="https://www.example.de/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de" href="https://www.example.de/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de-CH" href="https://www.example.ch/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr-CH" href="https://fr.example.ch/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de-AT" href="https://www.example.at/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://www.example.fr/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://www.example.com/category-name/"> <link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="https://www.example.es/category-name/">
