By default, there is only one Application Proxy Group

Go to central admin

Making your web pages search friendly

The title and meta description are important because they both are used by the search engine to generate the actual search result for the specific page. The title is used to generate the first line shown; the meta description is used to generate the few short sentences that follow.


Meta description

The title and meta description are important because they both are used by the search engine to generate the actual search result for the specific page.

The title is used to generate the first line shown; the meta description is used to generate the few short sentences that follow.

As an example the following page


Is building blocks

Meta Description

The description which appears in google search engine

For a page about fruits and vegetables, you will want to make sure that the phrase “fruits and vegetables” is in both the title and meta description. A good title would be “Blake Produce – Fresh Fruits and Vegetables.” This describes what the page is about and highlights your company name.

A good Meta description is usually two short sentences. It should also reinforce the title by using the keyword or phrase again. A good description would be: “Blake’s Produce delivers organic fresh fruit & veg to your home, as often as you need it. Order your customizable box online.

A title should be short and sweet; a description should match what the page is about.

 Content marketing.

Links to your site are great, as long as they are legitimate links from good websites.
So how can you get more of these good links? The best way is to create great content on your own site. Then, others may link to you because they think their audience should see your content. You can also encourage others to write about you, and share links to your website. In the SEO industry, this is called content marketing.

Social media

Search engines will crawl any page they can access, including social media sites. However, they generally do not place special significance on your popularity within a social media site. For example, you will not get more credit for having more “likes” or “followers.”
However, using social media is still a great way to reach a bigger audience. It promotes your site—and your business—because it helps, people discover your content and encourages them to interact with you. 


SEO International targeting

Target your search results to a specific country

Generic top-level domains (gTLDs) such as .com or .org

Domains that are not associated with specific locations. If your site has a generic top-level domain such as .com, .org, and wants to target users in a particular geographic location, you should set a country target.

 Country-coded top-level domain (ccTLDs)
(such as .ie or .fr)

It is already associated with a geographic region (in this example, Ireland or France). If you use a country-coded domain, you will not be able to specify a geographic location. You can specify a target country in the International Targeting report.

How do we determine location without Search Console?

If no information is entered in Search Console, Google relies largely on the site’s country domain (such as .ca, .de). If you use an international domain (.com, .org, .eu), we will rely on several signals, including IP address, location information on the page, links to the page, and any relevant information from Google My Business. If you change hosting provider for a country domain, there should be no impact. If you change the hosting provider of an international domain to a provider in another country, we recommend using Search Console to tell us which country your site should be associated with.

How to do it?

Open google web masters tools

Add your property (your web site) the press the web site

KRBTGT account cannot be enabled

KRBTGT account cannot be enabled

The KRBTGT account is a local default account that acts as a service account for the Key Distribution Center (KDC) service. This account cannot be deleted, and the account name cannot be changed. The KRBTGT account cannot be enabled in Active Directory.

KRBTGT is also the security principal name used by the KDC for a Windows Server domain, as specified by RFC 4120. The KRBTGT account is the entity for the KRBTGT security principal, and it is created automatically when a new domain is created.

Windows Server Kerberos authentication is achieved by the use of a special Kerberos ticket-granting ticket (TGT) enciphered with a symmetric key. This key is derived from the password of the server or service to which access is requested. The TGT password of the KRBTGT account is known only by the Kerberos service. In order to request a session ticket, the TGT must be presented to the KDC. The TGT is issued to the Kerberos client from the KDC.
