Whicher, I'm just wondering if you've had any experience regarding Google's acceptance/rejection of a large number of links like this. Do you have it installed on your site(s)? Thanks.

I have it installed at http://www.detecties.com/dc

http://www.detecties.com/dc/googlepuller.php

when i do a search at google like:
http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&q=det ... nity&meta=it comes up at top of the google page.

So it seems, after having it installed since a few months google did not put my board on some sort of blacklist.

Ofcourse is the use of this mod for own risk what concerns that sort of thing.

Great mod. I installed this about a week ago. Since then, Google just can't get enough of my site.

Thanks

Google does not need to access the hidden forums, its all about they pick up the url's for indexing

I love the puller, it worked famously for me... I have a semi private group that I want listed on the searches in order to gain new membership... I however do not want google to cache my pages... Is there a way to use this mod and not have the pages cached by google or other search engines?

Thanks In Advance,
AO

you can create a file called robots.txt, in which you can give what robots like google dont have to index. (cache)

From what I have read the robot.txt file only allows or disallows said crawler bot or bots... I want to allow the bot or bots, but stop the pages from being cached... Further I go on to read that meta tags can accomplish this... Then the problem would be putting a meta tag into php...

I hope I am communicating this right... Can you use a meta tag in a page such as 'memberlist.php'

TY for your timely reply...

$template->assign_vars(array(
'META' => '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3;url=' . append_sid("viewtopic.$phpEx?" . POST_TOPIC_URL . "=$topic_id&start=$start") . '">')
);

put your own meta tag in place of the one in example above

In advance, please forgive my ignorance...

Here is the tag that I wish to use <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE">

Where in your example should these attributes or this tag be placed???


Thanks again, I searched for hours last night and I cannot find this specific request anywhere...
