Manually edit meta tags?

Postby deweydb » Mon Mar 09, 2009 9:23 pm

First of all, I got the premod all installed and working pretty nicely. I would like to say thanks for all the work you guys have put into this, it really is quite a useful phpbb mod!

my site is www - glitchhopforum - com
When i search google for "glitch hop" my results come up but they appear like:
Glitch Hop Forum
25 Feb 2009 ... Glitch Hop Forum : Worldwide Glitch Hop Community.
glitchhopforum.com/ - 14k - Cached - Similar pages -

Now my question(s), sorry if this is kinda noobish but...
1) How do i get rid of that 25 Feb 2009 showing up in there?
2) How do i change the meta description, and meta keywords tags to specific values of my choice for the front page instead of auto-generated ones?

1) It's google to decide.
2) The index meta desc and keywords are build using the configurer site description and site name in acp, so you can edit these a bit.
Or you can just put some hard coded values in index.php :
Code: Select all
// www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT BEGIN - META
$seo_meta->meta['meta_desc'] = $seo_meta->meta_filter_txt($config['sitename'] . ' : ' .  $config['site_desc']);
$seo_meta->meta['keywords'] = $seo_meta->make_keywords($seo_meta->meta['meta_desc']);
// www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT END - META

becomes :
Code: Select all
// www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT BEGIN - META
$seo_meta->meta['meta_desc'] = $seo_meta->meta_filter_txt("My custom description");
$seo_meta->meta['keywords'] = $seo_meta->make_keywords($seo_meta->meta['meta_desc'] . " my custom keywords separated by spaces ");
// www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT END - META

Is there any way of having dynamic meta tags for most of the forum pages - but set manual tags for specific pages?

Well, for forum, meta are built using the forum title and description set in acp, so it's already done on a per case basis, but for topics, it would be more work to allow custom meta only for some.
Besides, the first post content is the one used to build topic Meta's, so they should already be as good as the content in it.

Coolio i just edited the site description and title on the 'Board Setting' page within ACP so hopefully this will sort out the static meta description i want to be displayed in the Google search results for the index page of the forum!?
