Permalink indexed by google

Postby zvunks » Mon Apr 08, 2013 12:15 pm

Can anybody, PLEASE tell me why google is indexing my forum pages like this:

<domain>/topic1277.html

instead of:

<domain>/dezactivare-sunet-feedback-telecomanda-ticait-enervant-volum-t1277.html

Both URL are ok, but google are indexing the page without permalink, the wrong URL. Is this normal?

Anyway, i have lots of other URL where google indexed the correct overwritten URL (permalink).

Please help because i don't know how to search this forum for solution...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Just a guess, but maybe zero dup isn't enabled in the ACP.

I have the following settings:
- Activate URL rewriting: Yes
- URL rewriting type: Mixed (i want to edit manually permalinks)
- Activate SQL Rewriting: Yes
- Highlights Removing: Yes
- Forum URL caching: Yes

All other options are set to "No"

- Activate The No duplicate: No
- Activate the Zero duplicate: No
- Posts Redirections: Guest

It seems to me that if i set the permalink for topic before first submition, google takes the correct URL. If i edit a member new topic, after he created... google takes the topicYYY.html URL.

My mistake... I didn't activated from the start. Is it to late now to activate it? Google indexing will be affected?

Thank you (excuse my bad english)

This requires an .htaccess update and you should clear your board cache. Also run the script: /phpbb_seo/sync_url.php

Is it to late now to activate it?

No, topics will be 301-redirected, just takes some time.

So, i change the settings, overwrite .htaccess (regenerate from ACP) and then clear theme cache. In this order? After all, i run sync_url.php - this script does what?

After i made this changes, old url indexed by google will still working, but in time will be permanent move and will appear with new urls.

What about indexed comments? Will be ok?

Excuse if i ask stupid question. I just want to go everything well.

Thanks alot!

There are no stupid questions.

sync_url.php starts topic URLs synchronization, it can't hurt, as long as you don't interrupt the (short) process.
The order doesn't really matter IMHO.

After i made this changes, old url indexed by google will still working, but in time will be permanent move and will appear with new urls.

Correct, because of the zero dupe and the 301-redirects.

Thank you!

One more question...
I've made some seo spam, and google refused to index one of the new topics.
After i removed the keywords spam... google indexed the new topic but in this form: <domain>/viewtopic.php?t=1311&p=5538, and this is complete out of SEO.
That's another weird situation created by the missing zero duplicates?

Exactly, activate the zero dupe function in the ACP -> phpBB SEO and all those URLs will be correctly 301-redirected.

You can immediately check it out after activating the zero dupe (the redirect, indexing the correct URL(s) will take some time).

Hi Stephen26,
if i let URL rewriting type in Mixed mode, and just change thisȘ
- Activate The No duplicate: Yes
- Activate the Zero duplicate: Yes
... then .htaccess replace (rewrite) is stil required?

Thank you

To be honest: I would need to test that out to be sure. But I'm tired. :wink:

Whenever an .htaccess update is necessary, you should see a message in the ACP - PHPBB-SEO settings.

But - when you're unsure, or things don't work proberly - simply make that .htaccess update. If you do it right, it can never hurt!

I'll take a nap now btw. :wink:

So, I'll likely won't answer within 2-3 hours. :)

Well, i made that test, after i did a full backup :)
Seems to me that it works ok...
Right after i made the change, i checked some of my forum links... topics, members and so forth...
Another good think is that now it shows, for each forum the subject of the topic where is the las comment. Until now it was showing only the username and the date/time of comment. It looks like some INNER JOIN (or LEFT) works now properly.

Now i'm waiting for google to reconsider my url's....

Now, please answer me to another question...
I have an indexed url like... <domain>/bla-bla-bla-some-other-link-t1234.html and i changed the assigned URL, manually (MIXED mode) to ... let's say <domain>/bla-t1234.html. It work's perfectly, even i i click on the old URL indexed by google. I guess, all SEO Permalink is based on the last portion of URL... that t1234, ID of topic. So do you thing i have any problems if i make some athor URL changes for a few topics?

I just realized that google give more importance to <title>, and avoid url spam... I'm just trying to learn some more SEO :)

Thank you!

Is there possible to set <title> HTML tag with another text? I want to add a new field in database table, for a custom title. So, when google is indexing the topic, to consider that title but in forum the title would be shorter. The permalink remains with 2 or 3 keywords, but words like "Price,Review,Opinions..." should apper only in <title> tag, not in topic title showed in forum.
I hope i made my self clear... cause i'm stronglying writing in english :D

Thank's alot for your time!

Hi!

To be honest I didn't really understand your question. :wink:

Could you please post it in your native language? I'll use Google translate.

However - if I understood your question correctly - I believe without custom features you won't have this option.

But more experienced team members can of of course correct me and hopefully give you the correct answer.

Thanks!

Ok, i rephrase :D

I had a topic with permalink specified manually (i'm in MIXED mode with SEO). Now i wanted to change the URL, i made the change and the old URL, indexed by google is still working, and i wonder why. It's because that id added right before ".html"?
It's safe to make other URL changes? Google will se the "permanent moved" redirect? (301)?


Now, about the title of topic, set in HTML code, <title> tag. I want to be able to specify it manually, like the permalink. I don't really need to change the interface, cause i could set the custom title in the new field (that i want to add) in topics (i'm not shure this is the table name) table (in database).

I noticed that a blog have short permalink, long title (<html> tag) with relevant keywords but the article title is with less keyword. This blog is very well positioned in google index, although the content has poor quality.

I hope you understand me now. Thanks!
