I don't see this behaviour in my 1.8 test forum.

It's not something I would fix in the plugin in any case. Google SEO does not want to break URLs; if MyBB feels obliged to append any parameter, Google SEO keeps that parameter as it has to assume that removing it would break it in some way.

That's also the reason why you get URLs like Thread-some-test?pid=123#pid123 - it would break post links otherwise. As far as the search engine is concerned, there's the meta canonical in the header which shows the pure URL without surplus parameters.

If you want the datecut parameter to be gone, you'll have to find where it comes from and remove it there.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - Leefish - 02-15-2015

Hi Frostchutz - I only see it on forumdisplay (the datecut thing) - I even see it on MyBB. It only does it on additional pages. It seems to do it when we click the pagination link.

Anyway, another question

Is there a way to utilise the rel=next and rel = prev as recommended in the Google webmaster guidelines?

http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.nl/2011/09/pagination-with-relnext-and-relprev.html


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - frostschutz - 02-15-2015

Ah, I see. In the forumdisplay, the pages always have datecut= in them.

Still. It's not something to be fixed in / related with Google SEO. You want to change this behaviour in MyBB itself.

I'm really not sure what's going on there anyway, in forumdisplay.php

PHP Code:
$datecut 9999;
if(
$datecut && $datecut != 9999

It's probably missing a few if($datecut != 9999) further down the road. Picking a magic value like 9999 is just silly anyway, PHP can handle unset/empty variables.

In any case, if anything this is a MyBB bug, and off topic in this thread.

I'm not sure about the rel prev/next to be honest. I think it could be counterproductive. From the description it sounds like it would give Google a tendency to always link to the first page - whereas instead it could have pointed you directly to page 107 of this thread where you find a solution to your specific problem... it's hard to tell really. It might make more sense for forum pages rather than thread pages. I think Google should be smart enough to understand ?page=X anyway without such help.


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - Euan T - 02-15-2015

Yeah, that's some weird stuff going on there. Was this introduced as part of 1.8? I seem to remember seeing it discussed in the past.


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - Leefish - 02-15-2015

Thank you for looking into it for me Frostschutz. I see your point re the showthread and next/previous and it would probably be better suited to forumdisplay.


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - _Jerry_ - 02-22-2015

Hi frostschutz ,

How to get the "Forum" Link to the paginated page?

Say, I clicked on a page from second page of threadlist, when I click back on the forum link from the thread, it will take me to the first page of threadlist.

I am using Google SEO 1.6.8 and MyBB 1.6x


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - frostschutz - 02-22-2015

@_Jerry_: why do you ask me? It's not related to the plugin at all. MyBB just links to the first forum page.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - hiboy - 02-25-2015

Hi,

I would like the url as followed -

For forum -
let use gadgets category as example
I would like it to be:
http://www.example/gadgets or http://www.example.com/category/gadgets

For thread -
let use iphone apps as title example
I would like it to be:
http://www.example.com/thread-title (http://www.example/iphone-apps)
if the title have space in between, add a dash like (iphone-apps)

I manage to get my ideal url shown,forum category link works but when i click on thread, it shows invalid forums.

Another wierd things is, when i access http://www.example.com/user/admin, the admin profile page shown, but when i navigate to menu , it shows http://www.example.com/user/index.php and images also broken become http://www.example.com/user/images/logo.png

Thank you.
