Re: search engines do not see signatures

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Even matt cutts in his blog says : - For some reason, I hate signature links. Hate them. Your odds of getting a comment approved are much slimmer if you drop a sig in the body of the comment. Now here's a question. Would it be possible to hide signature links for ...

HB, you mentioned being able to remove all numbers from being indexed. That'd be awesome - how would you go about doing that? I assume its in the functions_search.php file, but I am not php saavy enough to figure out where :)

My tip of the day. If you don't have any images with a border applied (usually only happens when you link an image, like img src="lala.jpg" border="0") then you can remove all instances of border="0" in your phpbb templates. Add this to your css file: a img {border...

Is that for links that a user posts in a thread?

I just apply the nofollow attribute to everything.

I know adsense was beta testing adsense ads in rss feeds a while ago, but it was limited to certain publishers. I dunno if they;re going to release it or not.

Ok I promise this will be my last post in a row :) One other thing. In viewtopic_body.tpl I put <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in --> and <!-- END switch_user_logged_in --> Before and after where the template calls the images like "{postrow.EMAIL_IMG}". I figure it helps protect the users f...

Oh yeah - THis is debatable, but you may want to replace some of the alt atributes with your keywords. They might help your on-page seo, but I don't think dramatically and could be seen as keyword stuffing. For example the standard alt attribute of the profile image is "View this users profile&...

One other thing I did was remove redundant alt and title attributes. On images that are like 5x5 px there's no need for an alt and title that says "This will take you to their profile" or something like that. I just stripped those out all together, unless I thought it would impair usabilit...

The work I've done on my own site has definitely helped, if not SEO then at the very least speed. It's faster loading, and reduces bandwidth. And I'm sure I've had some seo 'boosts' in google and stuff. I've been pretty ruthless though. I've renamed all the stock images from things like "mini_p...

good call. i have the same in google sitemaps, so I'd like to remove those lines to un-restrict the urls from robots.txt.

I'll give it a shot!

Here's login_body.tpl - again replace all the code with this: <form action="{S_LOGIN_ACTION}" method="post" target="_top"> <a href="{U_INDEX}" class="nav">{L_INDEX}</a> <div id="c3"><b>{L_ENTER_PASSWORD...

No kidding hey? Makes you realize what a waste of code the original template uses.

One thing about the above code I posted - You may want to enclose some of it in a centered div depending on your preferences :)

Here are a few small pages I removed tables from. They won't directly help SEO wise but they do remove the tables with a CSS design. Which means a faster site. Which means better for users. Happy users = More posts which means more content for search engines :) Anyways, these were a couple quick one...
