[Optimal titles] What will happened if ...

Postby Goroman » Sat May 10, 2008 1:34 am

Hello
I want to install Optimal titles V 1.0.2

but I have little question...

I have 7040 IP in Google ( I'm using vanila phpbb3)

What will happened if I install this mod ?
I will lose some GIP ? ( Google Indexed Pages)

In description of this mod we see:
This mod will optimize phpBB pages titles.
By Default, page titles contain many useless information, such as "View Forum" or "View topic".
This mod will better target words to use in titles, using topics, forums and categories titles.

In addition, this mod will add the page's number in page title, which allow for a lot better pagination indexing. As two pages with the same title are hard to keep in SEPRS.


Pls reply :)

No, just the opposite. Example:

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Page+ ... bb-seo.com

Unique meta descriptions and title are a good thing.

ok :)
I want to install Dynamic Meta tags 0.2.2 too

but before install I have question ( I'm carefull :wink: )

Now I have my metatags in overall_header

but this mod deletting metatags from overall.... ( not exactly)
he's adding:
{META_TAG}
{META}


but where i may put my metatags ? in ACP ? functions.php

I guess that will be in functions.php
but where exactly ?

Example :
www: test.com
title: Test me
descrip. : This is my test site . Welcome :)
keywords : testkeyword1, testkeyword2, testkeyword3, testkeyword4


where put that ? in which part of code ?
I'm thinking that will be in ?:
function seo_meta_tags() {
global $config;
$this->meta['meta_tpl'] = '<meta name="title" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="description" lang="%s" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="keywords" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="category" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="robots" content="%s" />'. "\n" . '<meta name="distribution" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="resource-type" content="%s" />' . "\n" . '<meta name="copyright" content="%s" />' . "\n";
// Here you can hard code a static default title, description and keywords
// As is, the mod will return information based on the phpbb config
$this->meta['meta_title_def'] = $config['Test me'];
$this->meta['meta_desc_def'] = $config['This is my test site . Welcome :)'];
$this->meta['meta_keywords_def'] = $config['testkeyword1, testkeyword2, testkeyword3, testkeyword4'];
$this->meta['meta_lang'] = $config['default_lang'];
$this->meta['meta_cat'] = 'general';
$this->meta['meta_robots'] = 'index,follow';
$this->meta['meta_distrib'] = 'global';
$this->meta['meta_restype'] = 'document';
$this->meta['meta_copy'] = $config['sitename'];

I must make sure :) so correct me if i wrong :P

Only ten minutes after sending the post and you are requesting quick reply?
You're little bit impatient, aren't you?

Have you looked a few lines higher in functions.php? There you will find in build_meta(...) :roll:

Code: Select all
$this->meta['keywords'] = ( !empty($this->meta['keywords']) ) ? $this->meta['keywords'] : $this->make_keywords( $page_title . ' ' . $this->meta['meta_keywords_def']);

You could modify that code or set $seo_meta->meta['keywords'] prior to the page_header invocation. :wink:

Assuming you set the language for the board, this will already be correct:

Code: Select all
$config['default_lang'];


But you can always check with:

Code: Select all
echo $config['default_lang'];

I don't know what "crash my meta tags" means, but first thing to do is double check your work. Programmers have been known to make mistakes.

No, I don't.

But to be honest, I put meta tags low on my list of important SERP influencers. The meta description tag is worth paying attention to because Google uses it for the URL summary if no search keywords are present. In other words, I believe it's a safe bet that Google can figure out the best keywords without meta tag help from the webmaster.

By the way, if you don't have a heavily modified board, the easiest answer may be using the phpBB-seo premod. That is the base phpBB 3.0.1 build with all the SEO mods installed.

That's here, but not how, use :
Code: Select all
      $this->meta['meta_title_def'] = 'Test me';
      $this->meta['meta_desc_def'] = 'This is my test site . Welcome :)';
      $this->meta['meta_keywords_def'] =  'testkeyword1, testkeyword2, testkeyword3, testkeyword4';


Instead.

About setting the meta tags in acp, well, the need only exists for forum index and forums. Since the meta description for index uses the configured site description set for you forum, and that the meta description of each forum is the configured forum description, you can actually already set them in ACP.
