rss.php, sitemap.php, urllist.php all are in

http://www.guitartrade.org/forum/

The settings I changed in those 3 file are;

$paths['rss_url'] = 'http://www.guitartrade.org/forum/';
$paths['sitemap_url'] = 'http://www.guitartrade.org/forum/';
$paths['urllist_url'] = 'http://www.guitartrade.org/forum/';

The Sql was installed through db_install.php and showed as completed. Please visit my site and provide some assistance! Thanks!

It appears (appeared?) to be a styling issue for the main sitemap:

http://guitartrade.org/forum/sitemaps.xml

The other sitemaps look fine:

http://guitartrade.org/forum/beginner-q ... s-gf14.xml
http://guitartrade.org/forum/forum-sitemap.xml

The styles are for your convenience; the spiders don't care about them. BTW, have you read this related discussion?

Hm, strange works now.

What about this ?

http://guitartrade.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=9

and your sites look like

http://www.phpbb-seo.com/boards/gym-sit ... .html#7141

php -> html. Isn't this important for SEO? Mine did not change.

Thanks!

Sorry, I didn't notice the first time that your sitemaps have title injection URLs ("advanced rewrite mod"). Did you set it to that in the config page? The default is auto-detect but it can be overridden (why someone would do that is another question).

The sitemap is a listing of your site's URLs and the installation is simple. The URL rewrite mods are more ambitious and require more understanding of the SEO consequences, especially for boards that are already heavily indexed. If you wish to go that route, read the above link to learn what's involved. In the meantime, switch your GYM setting to URL rewriting type "None No URL rewriting".

Okay will read all of the above. I already installed the session ID hack long time ago, so I can proceed further. I just now noticed an extreme error with my site, if you go to google and search "guitar site:guitartrade.org" you will see that I have many pages, the title sometimes works, but appearantely the post is always the same?!

I had a crappy sitemap before, so maybe this could have been involved...

Can you advise?

It looks like you either modified the template file (viewtopic_body.tpl) or modified the $page_title variable in viewtopic.php. For example, this looks like it's displaying the site description as the page title:

http://www.guitartrade.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3267

That has nothing to do with sitemaps.

Look like you badly need the optimal title mod.

Looks like you changed the way phpBB build titles, and always output the same page title. This really does not helps out search engines.

Off topic, but I think your forum's registration agreement is the longest I've ever seen! Over 18000 words! Was this a veiled attempt to assure nobody reads it? :shock:

the optimal title. Things are still the same. I did some research and the titles now actually show dynamicaly and are optimized if you search on google page 2+...

But the description always is the same or different only once...Static.

I copied 3 files here, that might have to do something with the error I have;

[MOD] Sorry, but too much code kills code ;) [/MOD]

Description is another matter, the dynamic meta tags mod is the one you should look at for this ;)

Hello, I have something similiar like this already, but it is not the problem. Please look here and you will see what I'm talking about. The titles work but the description is always the same
