      You can watch the SERPs drop for vbulletin.com in real time. previously there was over 3 million pages indexed. now its at like 2.4 to 2.3 million.

      All the CMS article pages were lost for sure since they don't exist.

        I see a mix pagination now. JS on top and button numbers at the bottom

          Cheers Joe...

          This is quite a major issue, is there in record of this in the JIRA washroom? I would like to vote that this gets fixed ASAP.... Not much point in having content when there is no reference to it.

            Unless you are planning to teach Googlebot how to run Javascript and where to click, vb 5 is SEO suicide.

            It's astonishing to me that "All but page 1 of our Threads and Forum Indexes are vanishing from Google!!!" is not ringing alarm bells or a top priority. It just tells you how many other issues there are.
            There are some changes in 5.0.3 that should address this, though our json is understood and compiles with googlebot, at least so im told.

            vB4 and vB3 have a ton of ajax as well. The old url structure is gone.


            I trust personally trust digitalpoint's opinion on the current situation. I've passed what he has said on, we're continuing to look into it.

              The 5.0.3 changes to thread navigation does look like it fixes the issue of Googlebot not being able to find beyond page 2.

              In fact, just as a test, you can see posts from page 2 of this thread now that this site is on 5.0.3: https://encrypted.google.com/search?...2.3+million%22

              The navigation of threads within the forum view is *slightly* better... but it's still very faulty. It at least gives end users a URL they can copy/paste, but those URLs are still generated with JavaScript... meaning Googlebot isn't going to see them. If you look at the page source of one of those pages, you don't see the navigation links like you do as an end user (again... generated with JS I assume).

                vB3 has a "ton of ajax"?

                News to me. vB3.8.x is fully usable with Javascript disabled. I think the only thing that really breaks is thread moderation.

                  It does, it also has a lot of fall backs in the system to not depend on ajax, but that doesn't mean ajax isn't there. There are a lot of ajax functions/features: quick reply, quick title edit, mark forums read, double click to close threads. I'm sure I'm forgetting more stuff as well.

                    From what I understand we're using html 5 stuffs to maintain the links. If pagination links are still being generated with js after page load, that is something else that needs to be looked at IMO.

                      Zachery, this could easily be fixed. You can have ajax pagination and still have actual urls in the pager.
                      PHP Code:

                      <span><a href="/yourpage-blah/page1" ocnlick="GoToPage(1); return false;">1</a></span>
                      <
                      span><a href="/yourpage-blah/page2" ocnlick="GoToPage(2); return false;">2</a></span>
                      <
                      span><a href="/yourpage-blah/page3" ocnlick="GoToPage(3); return false;">3</a></span>
                      ...
                      the rest of pager elements 
                      The only thing is you can't build this pager with javascript because google and other search engines might not pick the links up.
                      Speed up your member list page by at least 5x (4.x.x)

                          The page has <meta> tag to indicate the prev/next urls.
                          Code:
                          [COLOR=#881280][FONT=monospace]<link [/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=monospace]rel[/FONT][COLOR=#881280][FONT=monospace]="[/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=monospace]next[/FONT][COLOR=#881280][FONT=monospace]" [/FONT][/COLOR][FONT=monospace]href[/FONT][COLOR=#881280][FONT=monospace]="[/FONT][/COLOR][URL="http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-5-connect/vbulletin-5-connect-feedback/3976845-how-to-access-the-page-2-of-a-thread-display-via-the-url/page2"][COLOR=#0000FF]http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vbulletin-5-connect/vbulletin-5-connect-feedback/3976845-how-to-access-the-page-2-of-a-thread-display-via-the-url/page2[/COLOR][/URL][COLOR=#881280][FONT=monospace]" />[/FONT][/COLOR]
                          And the top pagination control links are not generated by js.

                              Those hidden links are for search bots to properly crawl multi-page threads and as you know those visible links are working for humans.
