Google indexing

Post by edgar davids »

My forum was born late January, 2009. Our forum stats are as followed;

Total posts 93231 • Total topics 7112 • Total members 1733

We attract around 100 users per day, 1 new user, and around 20-30 posts. If I search for "Brock Commodore" we're not anywhere near Google's first page. I've submitted the site, and tried to use keywords/description in overall_header.html, but still no luck, any help appreciated to push me in the right direction.

PhpBB has no control over Google' page ratings.
The way I understand it, your rating largely controlled by the number of high-rated sites that link to yours.

Have you considered asking Google? They should give you the most precise answers concerning search result ranks.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.
