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 categries 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.
As well Adds a specific title to categories. All this without any SQL queries.
A must, whatever you SEO strategy.
In the above install, you'll find some comment about how to add the forum title
in the topic page's title.


just you have this part in your overall_header.tpl.

Code: Select all
# EG Delete


you must remove this part

this mode is compatible with other seo mods released by www.phpbb-seo.com . in my opinion its required. phpbb page titles are very bad but this mod will organize your titles.
this mod can help a lot

This is not the best thing to do IMHO.
To add it, just keep the {SITENAME} in the title tag in overall_header.html, it stands for the board name as set in ACP.
If you really want to add it, I suggest you add it at the end of the title.

This is already the case with this mod, first topic title and then the forum one.
