Me and everybody else probaly wants their site to show up on Google. I have not banned any bots on my site. There is always a Google bot on my site. My site never shows up in Google's search engine. Like I posted a topic on this site, and Google had it indexed within a hour. If they are always on my site, why aren't they indexing things? I even checked the robots.txt file, Google is allowed on. Google has only like 5 of my pages. I have over 200 topics. Also, this site also has Msn, and Yahoo! robots, how do I get those robots on my site?

Hello,

The Yahoo! bot comes onto your forum after about the first month, where as the Google bot comes onto ur forum, within it's first few weeks.
They both do create "indexed" versions of your forum; like the Google "cache" if you like.

Your forum is not able to come up onto these searches for several weeks after they make their first visit; you can search for you forum by the "site name" but searches are always run by "Meta tags"

Example: I have a site called "Microsoft support forum" and some of the meta tags are "Microsoft help" "help Microsoft" "Microsoft forum", and I want to find it on Google; putting in something not similar such as "johns forum" will not even come close to finding my site.
However if I were to put in Google "Microsoft help" or "help Microsoft" or "Microsoft help forum" my forum has a high chance of being on the top half of my Google search.

It also helps if you have a high activity number, as the higher it is, the better the ranking of ur site, and the higher the ranking, the more bots come, more actively.

There is no bot control panel.

What are you searching? It could be that other sites are more 'popular' (been visited more) than yours, and they're on the first page(s). your site could just be a few pages back.

I have had my forum since 2008.

I searched my forum's URL. I also used a bookmarklet tool to find all pages of my site. And I tried my site search. There was only like 5 pages or so of mine on there..I searched through pages.

Also remember the bots can only gather information on topics/post of the forums that are open to all/guest. bots can not register on your forum there for they can not get into or gather any information that the forums are set for members only.

so depending what you want to show. you can have your forums permissions set for guest to view but they would have to be a member to reply. if you forums are set this way then the bots can gather more information.. other then that meta tags is where it's at like Darren said.

but like notMicElf said. if someone else has similar topics or meta tags that get more hits (more popular) then of course they will be the first ones to come up on the search engine.

so that's just a lil more insight on the issue. but the more forums you have open for guest to at least view the more info bots can gather to add to there search engine.

Also, I have another problem. I have a forum that guests can post in. Google bots are going in there and spamming my site search...they are indexing the link new topic on the guest forum. Whenever I search anything...there is always a page like that that says information. I am getting a little more indexed pages now..but not close to all of them.

The problem is that only Google bots are on my site. I want MSN and Yahoo! bots to come too. Also, the Google bots are barely indexing anything of my forum. This is bad for me because my site search engine does not function correct. Also, the bots are indexing the new topics, quote, post reply, e.c.t. links on my guest forums.

Well there is a simple answer for your problem.
You not forumotion nor anybody else but the company can make the bots come.

There is no feature to stop them from coming so there is nothing you need to worry about.

There is a code to ban them...but the problem is that not all of them are coming...and when some do come all day...they don't index everything they are supposted to.

Cman, the MSN bot will only come when your forum reaches a pre-determined number of activity point's - end of story.

Figure, there is a code to disallow bots to access ur forum, but I don't know it off hand Wink

I have heard a little whisper through the grape vine about the Yahoo! bot;
It is currently not properly indexing when it should be - the yahoo! team is currently working on fixing, and upgrading it.

The Google bot will only index what guests can see.

You need to go to google summit your forum to the serach engine, go to other forums post the link and share the word of your forum. I would also suggest you add more mega tags so that its easyer for people to search your forum.
