    Hey, sorry for being a bit harsh there. I actually want this website to prosper. You are right, Google ignored everything after the slash. And although the article has been indexed, I think there is definitely some scope for improvement. For a spike in the views and readership, I'd love to

    1. Have the plugin 'Add This' edited so that that it doesn show the 'Request-URI Too Large' when I try to share

    2. Better deeplinking to the IT blogs section so that just searching 'Mytechnology IT blogs' gives a list of all IT blogs and articles instead of just showing all webpages of Mytechnology

    3. Have the internal linking optimized for the content-rich pages that are buried inside the website like IT blogs

    4. Have the website search engine optimized so that it features prominently in search results and gets many more hits than what it does at the moment

    Hi Sushrut,

    I was curious about your comments. I searched this article in Google and this article is already indexed by Google. Based on my undersatnding, Google ignores anything after '#'

    BTW, this code after # comes from the plugin of share and it comes "only after" the page is loaded.

    Is there anything for me to learn from it please?

    Is it possible for you to remove this '#.VD3dkYuUc00' bit of the URL? This article, as well as all other articles don't get indexed by Google for this simple reason. As a result, this website barely has any viewership or visitors also resulting in a stagnancy in rankings.

    Can you please fix this major flaw in the website URLs?
