Author notes:
Tested on a clean install of phpBB3 version 3.0.7-PL.
Tested with AutoMOD version 1.0.0.
If using automod and it fails maybes because you have already manually added to keywords and description in the overall_header.html, you must force the install,manually follow the instructions below.

Open styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html
Open styles/subsilver2/template/overall_header.html


find your keywords,description meta code and replace with this:

Code: Select all

<meta name="keywords" content="<!-- IF SEO_KEY -->{SEO_KEY}<!-- ENDIF -->" />
<meta name="description" content="<!-- IF SEO_DESC -->{SEO_DESC}<!-- ENDIF -->" />
Refresh template for prosilver & subsilver2.

I am currently using the Advanced Meta Tags mod located here http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1070025 Do you know if your mod is better to use for SEO than that one?

Honestly could not tell,i also have Topic SEO mod when combined together will do the same job i suppose other than you manually add the meta keywords and description giving a better chance of ignoring some of the posts content,But unfortunatly im not going to post the topic seo mod until the newest version is ready which allows post tags, and to mark certian posts off topic ,an example would be if joe blogs wanted to post "WOW! thanks for this great mod" it will be hidden from search engines.

I will take a look at the topic SEO you have linked there. If it is as you say I may also switch to the index SEO as well :)
