I am config SmartCrawl at my sub-directories based multisite. I have several questions about how to proceed:
a) This may be a silly question, but just to make sure: at Step 2, In the google & bing site verification code fields I assume the code to enter is, in the first case, the one that appears on the html google site verification html file without the "google-site-verification:" part, that is, just the code itself without those words, and in the case of Bing site verification, the digits & letters that appear between the <user> </user> tag; isn't it?
b)After configuring the base settings in the Network Admin site, I have turned WDS_SITEWIDE to "false" to activate the per-site access to SmartCrawl settings (I have access to every sub-site). Now I want to define some SmartCrawl settings on every site (custom keywords). Should I re-enter Google & Bing verification codes and Moz ID / Key for every sub-site? in that case, should I use the codes used for the main site or request a new verification for each subdirectory at google bing webmaster tools ?
c) Which is the difference between adding the verification code to all pages or to home page?
d) In Step 3: Title & Meta; is it recommended to check "No index" and "Now follow" options also in Project Categories, Project Tags, Post Categories, Post Tags, Author Archive, Data Archives, Search Page and 404 Page to avoid duplicate content appearing in search results.
e) I don't understand what "Author Archive / Search Page / 404 Meta Description" refers to... what kind of info should I enter there?
I hope they're not too many questions : )
