Natural Link

natural links happen when other webmasters, bloggers or website owners link to your content (blogs, images, products, videos etc) because they think is useful for their readers and adds value to their websites or pages.

Negative SEO

A rare but malicious practice where webspam techniques are used to harm the search rankings of another website, usually a competitor.

Niche

A specific market or area of interest consisting of a small group of highly-passionate people.

Noarchive Tag

A meta tag that tells search engines not to store a cached copy of your page. The  Noarchive  value when used in a Robots meta tag or similar method, instructs Google and other search engines not to store a cached archive copy of a resource.

Nofollow Attribute

A meta tag that tells search engines not to follow one specific outbound link. Nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute in HTML, for the purpose of not passing on SEO value.  No  follow links are now the standard when it comes to  comment  links. This is done in cases when a website doesn’t want to pass authority to another webpage or because it’s a paid link. The nofollow attribute looks like this:

<a href=”http://www.example.com/” rel=”nofollow”>Anchor text goes here</a>

Noindex Tag

A meta tag that tells search engines not to index a specific webpage in its index. To ‘noindex’ a resource is to issue an instruction to search engines not to index (include) the resource in search engine results. Noindex is a value that can be applied to the Robots meta tag, or via another method such as using the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header.

Nosnippet Tag

A meta tag that tells search engines not to show a description with your listing.

Noopener

Noopener is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute in a link to protect against reverse tabnabbing. It does not have an impact on SEO in a link that it is added to.

Noreferrer

Noopener is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute which tells the browser not to leak any HTTP refferer information, and is used in conjunction with noopener to protect against reverse tabnabbing. It does not have an impact on SEO in a link that it is added to.

“(not provided)”

After search engines moved to secure search in 2011, keyword data was removed from Google Analytics, replaced with “(not provided)” – thus making it impossible to know which queries were responsible for visitors finding a website.
