Support Forum Comments show up on Google search

Post by GalaJess on March 10th 2012, 7:33 pm

When I search for my forum on Google Chrome, the only thing that pops up are the questions I post on Support Forum, regarding my site. I dont appreciate my questions to be visible to the public like that, yet my url for my site does NOT show up.

What is that all about?

see, now because I add my Forum URL, it will show up again when I do a Google Search..... wait for it.......

http://Brandon.canadian-forum.com/

Can my question NOT just be kept here, in this Support section? Why does it need to go viral - across the entire Google network?

Hi,

That would be Google indexing things. You can't really stop it. The only thing I can do is move the post to the garbage, but still be visable.

You can not really ban search engine bots. Whatever is visible to guests, the bots will see and index.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

keep in mind Forumotion Support Forums are public forums and is open to bots,So there really is no way around this. Forumotion is not going to make it to where you have to be a member to view the forums content, It is open for all guest and the public as a whole.

GalaJess as far as your forum or topics on your forum showing up on Google search engine, remember bots can only gather information to what they have access to, so if your forum is set up to only allow members, then bots have no way of getting in to gather information, So if you would like to have more show up on google you should have all the forums you can set for at least guest to view, and then be a member to reply. But this dose not necessarily mean everything you search or anything in that case is automatically going to show? It can all depend on your forums activity as well.

You can also ad meta tags to better help bring your forum up on google, However it is sometimes hard for things to come up depending on the subject matter and what else has already been gathered from other places with more activity. Other then that it would be best to contact google for ways to better get things places in their search or possibly removed.
