  • Vbulletin and Google

    Is there a way to set Vbulletin up to be more search engine friendly with maybe normal URL's and regular .html files? It seems like it would be a good idea but no forums seem to really offer this..

          i got this info on google so I'm not sure is 3 is actually a fix to this..

          Freshbot will not crawl anything but indexes, html and text, deepbot will not crawl links with more then 2-3 variables in them (I.E. bum.php?ass=1&yes=no&butt=fat&turd=1) or urls with session IDs.

            vb3 drops session id's for spiders, plus theres a built in archive

                  The archives as is are not very useful at this point. This post (and every other post in the archive) would show up as:

                  vBulletin Community Forum

                  ...in search engine results. Not very descriptive.

                    so there would need to be a hack to maybe add the thread title to the <title> tag on that particular page
