phpBB SEO is providing three different mod Rewrite solutions for Search Engine Optimizing phpBB. In what follow, we will present the main principle behind the mod. Some of you may know that the phpBB SEO URL mods used to be released as three separate mods, and that they have been unified in V0.6.0. Starting from then, we do not talk about three different mods, but rather about three different modes, since the three type of URL remain and have each become a mode in the unified mod.
Please read carefully what follows, you will save time and will ensure that you will not jeopardise your PageRanking and SERPs.
Please Note :
- These codes are, in the end, quite easy to install, but you should better think two times about it before you go online.
A small typo in the .htaccess or in a RewriteRule can temporary block a whole site, and modifying your forum's URLs is really a big change in you web-site's life.
- The phpBB SEO Search Engine Optimizing techniques are really working, but you should not forget that the most important in what is put online is content and not the Search Engine Optimization trick we are able to install.
Search engine Optimization is only Optimization, and thus optimization of something that must be there. What we Optimize with SEO is content impact in Search Engine, no content, no optimization.
A simple way to state this would be :
- Code: Select all
1 000 000 000 X 0 = 0
- Quite some forums do not need any Search Engine Optimization, just because they only have private forums. Furthermore, very low quality content can be almost impossible to search for (no matching search query).
- In all cases, our advice here is to ask you to think well about your project's needs and about the effort you will be ready to put in it.
Few days of local testing to properly understand what is involved here can keep you safe from many problems.
And Remember, your web-site's Ranking will not suffer from waiting a bit more.
