Forum Changes


I have made quite a lot of changes to the forum this morning.

Hopefully if you are logged in, you will have a hard job spotting the changes, and even if logged out you will notice very little.

The idea though is that when a search engine looks at the site, it will be able to index the site more easily and hence when people do a web search, they will be more likely to end up here.

phpbb search engine optimization



This process called SEO or search engine optimisation for phpbb, is what you might call a neccesary evil for new web sites, until the news of the site gets out by word of mouth, we need to use every trick at our disposal to get noticed.

Hopefully the changes made will be problem free, but post in this forum if you see anything going wrong.

Am I correct in thinking that the Moderators' names have been removed from under the headings? Or is it just me...........

yep, removing excessive links and meaningless text is part of the process of trying to make things leaner/meaner more keyword rich, with less links going to places without much relevent text like members profiles.

I could make user profiles show waht you mod as well. This would be useful I think anyway.

I couldn't work out exactly what was different to begin with, but it was a lot easier on the eye, I think, search engines or no.

Clicking on latest post no longer takes you to the last post in the topic

Have removed the changes there, I don't think they were the key ones anyway.
