  • ps. after thinking it through a bit, I'm not sure if we can do the vB message title as the final part of the URL... without having to query to match the title back with the threadid when the user requests it. I was actually more excited about using it for my articles and FAQ. It would be easy to build a lookup table for those without having to run a huge query like you would for the vB.

    So I don't want to sound to excited about implementing your idea with the spiderFriend.. not sure if it's possible or feasible.. but it triggered a thought of how to do it with the rest of the site.

      I've disabled html in Vb posts.
      But, if someone put some html or javascript tag, with the spyderfriend they will run.
      Maybie to prevent this it's better to censor in vB some dangerous words like "javascript"?

      I found some threads are not in the list. Any idea?

      • Is the zip updated?

        Just wondering ...

        Is the zip in the second post the latest updated version of the hack?

        I noticed the date read 05-21-2001 and just wanted to make sure before starting.

          !! That's the first time I heard this! Which spiders (or major ones anyway) crawl only once?

          Nice hack btw.

                • Hi Overgrow,

                  These are just some general questions as regard to this hack.

                  As google and a few others can spider ? and & URLs what other advantages does this hack have other than all the dynamic meta tags?

                  What I'm getting at is - if I can do all the dynamic meta tags etc straight into my vB then removing them from the equation why would this hack improve the ability for search engines to spider.

                  As far as I can see the only difference would be the / in the URL's as opposed to ? and &'s. Are there any other advantages? Are they easier to spider because 'less clutter' from CSS, images etc?

                  Just wondering as I'm not that enlightened on exactly how search engines (specifically google) work, and what are all the benifits of this script over just inserting dynamic meta tags straight into your actual forum pages.

                  Cheers

                    thanks overgrow, my pagerank boost was from linking to my main site eva2000.com which has a very very high rank

                    unfortunately your hack doesn't seem to show threads anymore?

                    any updates?

                      • eva2000: did you submit your page to google again, or did google visit you automatically?
                        If you submitted, did you submit www.yourdomain.com or did you submit www.yourdomain.com/forum/archive/ ?

                          • Is this true?

                            Are you sure you folks aren't putting out 404 error pages?

                            • Did anyone ever figure out why some people had a problem where any of the links reloads the index.php page?

                              Here is an example http://www.reefcentral.com/vbulletin/archive/index.php

                              I'd love to get this hack to work.
