  • After upgrading, search engines do not like my site anymore

    Any idea why? I went to the final version of VB and from #1 postion in google that I have been for the last 2 years.. I am now nowhere to be found till page 4.... It has to do with the install of the latest version. any idea what to look for?

    Thanks,

    Nikos

        There has not changed anything between 3.0 and 3.5 to display threads differently.

        Are guests still able to view the forum or do they get permission denied when they visit your url?

          they can see the forum and subforums but in order to read they have to register...

          I just found out that the last time, google visited my site, it got

          xxx.com/archive/index.php/

          How can I disable the spider from going there?

            It is actually also good that they go there ..

            But you can turn it off from the vbulletin options.
            And I think then just delete the archive/ folder.
