Robots and user profile

Post by thecas »

Hi guys.
For the indexing of the forum what is better? Search engine's could or coudn't see the main profile of the users? (file memberlist.php ?)
In case, how is possible to allow it? I try to see the "bot access" in forum membership but i don't fine the correct settings.

By default I don't think the bots can see the profiles because there's no useful information on that page for them to index.

The permission os on the Profile tab of Group permissions for the Bots group = "Can view profiles, memberlist and online list - it should be set to No.
