Re: Set Meta keywords and description

... if no meta description is filled in it does penalise the page quite heavily in pageranking terms for not having one Not true, says the Google man himself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4gr88oHb-k#t=27 There will be, im sure, tweaks/mods that help bring 1st topic content into description tag ...

Re: Set Meta keywords and description

+1 I don't see how it hurts to have keywords listed. Site descriptions are definitely beneficial. However, there is the problem with duplicate descriptions though as Neil stated. Not sure if there's a way to remedy that considering that the site description is in the header. The reason Google first...

Re: Set Meta keywords and description

It doesn't hurt. Google grabs content from the page if there is no description filled in and uses that for description in search result page. While it does pull the description from the content if no meta description is filled in it does penalise the page quite heavily in pageranking terms for not ...

Re: Set Meta keywords and description

Yeah google and yahoo and others have ignored keywords for a long time now, better off without them sometimes as while google say they don't penalise keywords as such if they come over as spam then the pages are deleted from google's index. Better to not use them at all. Google only reads text from ...

Re: What Happened To The Report And Quote Buttons?

To be honest the hidden icons seems like a change for the sake of change, it adds nothing to a Forum design in my view. Seems like an idea that "it can be done, so let's do it"

Re: What Happened To The Report And Quote Buttons?

Cosmetic changes are fine , changing the look of the icons is cosmetic, making them disappear isn't cosmetic as it changes the behaviour of the board. Any change that may confuse a proportion of users isn't a good idea. I see no benefit from hiding them, all I see is potential confusion of board use...

Re: What Happened To The Report And Quote Buttons?

I like how it looks, but I think all admins of forums can expect many PM's asking why they can't quote and report! I've said this before but not every Forum user is internet savvy, they will just think they can't report or quote, they won't think of hovering the mouse

How many betas is something they can't know, it all depends how things go with each one.

Re: Login without password

I really think everyone needs to review this idea with the average user in mind, not the person running a Forum but the people they hope to attract. The Forums I have run have had a lot of people involved who were computer literate, the vast majority of people out there don't spend much time on Foru...
