My guess is your code is calling append_sid for the pagination links. That's where the phpBB seo code modifies the returned URLs. Since this page is presumably for search engines, you don't need to call append_sid (search engines don't have sessions).

Why don't you use sitemaps instead? It's faster than pages and pages of links, and they include timestamp information the search engine can use to determine if their index is up to date. Pages of links is soooooo yesterday.

Are you referring to crawl_linker here? It generates links based on your search table. Not sure it's much benefit SEO-wise, but you can add "crawl_linker" to the list of ignored files in phpbb_seo_class.php:

Code: Select all
      $this->seo_stop_files = array("posting", "privmsg", "faq", "groupcp", "memberlist", "login", "search");

Replace with:

Code: Select all
      $this->seo_stop_files = array("posting", "privmsg", "faq", "groupcp", "memberlist", "login", "search", "crawl_linker");

As for getting more bots to visit your forum - my #1 recommendation is create more backlink-worthy content. I wouldn't lose much sleep over it though, from my webstats, Google dwarfs the incoming traffic of all the other search engines. Yahoo brings some, MSN a bit less, and the rest are into single digits. I've seriously considered blocking search engines that don't "put out" enough relative to how much server resources they consume. Yahoo is by far the worse offender; its bots spend much more time on my site than the few visitors it brings!
