Forumotion Mod : URL Rewriting for your forums!

Post by Leviosa on Wed 15 Dec 2010, 11:46

Dear users,

To improve the SEO of your forums and simplify their use, please note that changes will take place for the URLs of internal pages of your forums. This transition is transparent, the old URLs will redirect to new URLs.
The result will be URLs indexed more easily in the search engines.

Examples:

Forum index:
http://myforum.forumotion.com/forum.htm >> http://myforum.forumotion.com/forum

Forum portal:
http://myforum.forumotion.com/portal.htm >> http://myforum.forumotion.com/portal

A topic:
http://myforum.forumotion.com/forum-f71/title-t15.htm >> http://myforum.forumotion.com/t15-title

Nevertheless, and in the unlikely event of problems arise, our team is listening to you on the support forum.

This update will be made within the next hours. Wink

Best,
Forumotion Team

Wonderful. That's the best news!

The most helpful thing you can do is make our forums available to search engines. I'm glad to see we're up to their standards now.

I really hope this drives traffic to our keywords.

Cheers!

By the way Typlo. You guys need to update the Robots.txt, they are still using the old urls.

After seeing the new URLs, it looks like the changes were for better server performance, not for SEO. This, plus IMGFAST, makes me wonder whether...aw, never mind. We'll all find out soon enough...

I'm glad I use Invision and phpBB3 exclusively. I feel sorry for those who bought the line that the best boards were phpBB2 and PunBB because they have templates, because those people have a LOT of work ahead of them -- this is only the beginning!

I will say, though...nice touch with the quote! Adding a date was a good idea. Adding a link to the quoted post would have been a better idea, though. Wink
