Me too, thanks .... but i have a few questions left!

I installed the lo-fi mod and the xs style on http://64bitsupport.net

How to appoint Google or another search robot spiders a lo-fi version
and not the hi-fi version.

And the search engines totally ignored my meta description.
How to fix or optimize this?

Is there an updated and working MOD(ification), corresponding to the one described in Knowledge Base - Google and phpBB - Find out how to make Google spider your forum, available somewhere?

I assume that you still have to apply such a modification to make Google(Bot) spider your phpBB 2.0.15-forums, right?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Has anyone done the MOD(ifications) necessary to make Google(Bot) spider your phpBB 2.0.15-forums?

If so, please post your MOD(ified) files here.

Thanks a lot in advance!

I wonder what the 72 pages in this thread are about. When searching for "commodore +forum" on Google and clicking that I only want to search for pages in Swedish my phpBB forum is the number 1 hit out of 9330. All I have done is adding three meta tags in overall_header.tpl. Hence, the claim that Google doesn't find phpBB forums seems to be incorrect.

Agreed - we need a fresh mod posting for the latest release, otherwise the whole of this thread is pointless.

I started reading this thread a long time ago and I do believe at one time or another I have read most if not all of it.

Since then I have developed my own set of tools for doing these things and plan to release an seo tookit soon that will cover everything here but will be more complete than what id discussed in this thread.

For more info you can start here:

and for more mods that build on that you can look here:

The number of links from my www.able2know.com domain is currently 16,200 and this number changes daily. Check Google's other servers and it's always a bit different.

Here is the search I used to determine this:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=& ... +able2know

I use the method to grant google a session and I also use a hidden link (I will change this) that links to a page that lists the topics without the session IDs. I think both are important but I'm going to link my spider page differently to avoid blacklisting.

edit:

I also must say that I use about 60 CMS pages and this really helps my content get indexed. On my site you will see that I have pages that display forum data in each category and this has really helped me get spidered.

yes that was one of the first i saw but was not really happy with the functionality of the product.

that is why I have come up with my current line of mods that actually do I beleie a better job of this.

including these :

http://www.webmedic.net/released-phpbb- ... 25564.html

http://www.webmedic.net/released-phpbb- ... 25565.html

http://www.webmedic.net/released-phpbb- ... 25569.html

http://www.webmedic.net/stripped-tpl-fi ... 25571.html

http://www.webmedic.net/released-phpbb- ... 25581.html

http://www.webmedic.net/manage-bots-mod-12-vt25620.html

http://www.webmedic.net/released-phpbb- ... 25622.html

thes ecover way more and are whay more complete than the seo mods in the links above. They have proven themselves over the last year without pushing or promoting my site at all.

Another thing is that pr raking has nothing to do with these mods. It has to do with how many others have links to your sites. This always takes time is more dependent on how long and your site has been arround and how good your content is.

no the google keyword urls and manage bots will do most of it for you. The others just help it along.
