I see that in meta keywords there is included only text and phrases of the topic content, not the topic title.
Some way to solve this?

I guess could be like the rewrite of advanced rewrite, to pick the "topic title", to replace all characters with "," and to just let one "," between letters. So you could have "::topic_title-example2-example3->title2::" and it could be rewriten to ",topic,title,example2,example3,title2" and that way coul be included in the rist statement declaration in
Code: Select all
        if( ($result = $db->sql_query($sql)) ) {
      $keywords = '';


Could be

Code: Select all
        if( ($result = $db->sql_query($sql)) ) {
      $keywords = (function get title meta);


so default values could be the title words separated by comas. And that way you may add the new keywords from the content i think.

@tweety

Page title and meta tags are two different things, and yes you should use both mods.

@arkantos

The next version will introduce some function to format any string into keywords list, will be easy to do what you want.

But, note that the topic title will already appear in the meta description, so it won't be necessarily a great SEO enhancement to repeat them this way.

Well as i know you need to have the meta keywords separated by coma or space or coma and space. In titles you have something like this: "->title1 seo improvements for today<-" so you have metas like this:

<meta keywords="->title1 seo improvements for today<-,key1,key2,key3,key4,key5,key6...">

As you can see the meta keywords are not the same, i mean title does not have the comas in it, also you would need to change all to spaces and not comas to have the title words as keywords. And for titles the characters like "->,::,---" are not good for meta keywords, and you will have those in many titles like "problem - error in functions.php" so the metakeyword title is "problem - error in functions.php", characters are not replaced and thats bad for metakeywords as i know.
But also putting full text without stating spaces as limit for keywords is bad, and you have mixed spaces and comas tant the same time, thats not possible.

But i know that from meta keywords guideline from 2004, maybe you know other things for this.

Even i strongly recommend to have the title words in the meta keywords, and a function to depure the title words to be with coma and to eliminate characters that are not part from the word.

Yes tweety, right here on this site (this page's code):
Code: Select all
<meta name="title" content="phpBB SEO MODS : [Toolkit] phpBB SEO Dynamic Meta Tags - Page 8">


I don't think though this is that much of a big difference, just another small weight added somewhere :roll:

And believe me arkantos, I know meta tags 8)
I was talking about the real impact you'd have just repeating words from the title when they are already well represented (title, meta title, and meta desc), could be better to show a bit more complexity, if only to make our meta tags less "always formatted the exact same" if you see what I mean.

Hi, thanks for the mod!

I am trying to customize the description a bit but need some help. In view forum, I would like to include the last couple of topic titles in that forum. Is that possible? Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Jenny

@jenny Welcome :D

What you're asking for would be quite some added work when building the page, and mostly SEO useless IMHO.

@Ľubor
on day, I'll do something for your nickname ;)

And no worries, the mod will work directly with simple sub forum, whatever version ;)

@tweety

Sorry for the file to edit list, it's not that much of a deal, but still.

Anyway, I don't think this is what causing us trouble here.

The blank page most likely mean a small error we cannot see with your server settings.
Do you have access to the server erro logs ?

You could try to put back the unmodified files for index.php, viewforum.php and viewtopic.php, and see if you still get the blanck page, if so go further in going back to unmodified files to find out which file is causing the error.

@lavinya
I do not get it sorry.

By the way, could you both post in the phpBB SEO MODS forum as suggested, this thread is meant to provide support for 0.0.1.

Hi,
I have installed the simple subforums mod.
Could this be a problem for the Dynamic Meta Tags to work on my forum?
