Re: Out of the box phpBB 3 is awful for SEO

Post by bvigorda »

Hi,

Maybe someone in this thread can answer a question for me.

Will my PR be negatively impacted if I allow members to link to their websites in the registration form, their posts and/or signatures? In other words, will they be considered outgoing links for purposes of PR?

Also, should I be submitting my forum to the indices?

Thank you

Not really. Depends on where the PR enters. If it enters on the viewtopic page, and is distributed via that page, yes... Otherwise no. If you're concerned, add the nofollow attribute.
