SEO: improve your forum description and meta description

SEO: improve your forum description and meta description
Dear members,

We just added new warning messages into the administrative panel to encourage administrators to enter a forum description and a forum title.

Why to add a forum title and description?



To make your forum know on Google you've to add a title and a description.


  • The title: guarantees a Google rank, inform your newcomers what your forum is talking about.
  • The description: provides additional information before entering your forum. The description is just under your forum title





  • Meta Description: The meta description is the short paragraph to advertise content to searchers and let them know exactly whether the given page contains the information they're looking for. Meta description tags, while not important to search engine rankings, are extremely important in gaining user click




Where to enter those information




  • Title and forum description


First, you've to enter your admin panel:
General>>Forum>> Configuration>> "Site name" & "Site description"




If the admin did not enter the forum title and description, a red message will appear:



  • Meta description:


First, you've to enter your admin panel:

General>> Forum promotion>> Search engines


Like for the title and the description, a red message will appear if the meta description is missing.

Best regards,
Forumotion
