I have added the degree symbol to the Punctuation characters area on plugin settings but it's still not working there. Please help.

Do you see any Google SEO notes in the ACP plugin area?

Your site seems to be working... hard to tell what's going on there.

Google SEO (or rather, PHP's preg_replace) expects valid UTF-8, but the ° symbol in your thread subject is latin1 encoding. Unfortunately with illegal sequences you end up with empty string URLs. Fix the thread subject and the URL will go back to normal. UTF-8 has been the standard for quite some time now (back in MyBB 1.4) so if you use something else I really can't help you...

The following notes are showing:


Your database encoding is '', should be 'utf8'. Please update your MyBB to use UTF-8 everywhere.
404, Meta, Redirect, Sitemap and URL are enabled. (Configure)
Click to Revert changes to core files.

There are hundreds of threads having that degree symbol and it will be really time consuming to find such threads and then editing their thread titles........any other method?


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - frostschutz - 03-23-2015

For your database encoding issue, please make a new thread, it's not really specific or even related to this plugin.


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - _Jerry_ - 03-23-2015

@Your site seems to be working... hard to tell what's going on there.
Hi frostschutz, thank you for helping me.
The site in discussion is having a big database and it is not linked here, not upgraded because of this problem.

I spent several hours to figure out the problem, the table mybb_google_seo had problem, a few rows in it were repeated with data "????" after utf8 conversion, this was preventing the db restore (columns id+url must be unique, isn't it?).

@saini,
There are hundreds of threads having that degree symbol and it will be really time consuming to find such threads and then editing their thread titles........any other method?

What I did is to open the db table in a text editor and deleted the unique lines in it (yeah really time consuming for large database)

Please do not take my words as final, let us wait for frostschutz to comment on this


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - saini1987 - 03-25-2015

I have successfully converted the database tables to UTF-8 and now that " Your database encoding is '', should be 'utf8'. Please update your MyBB to use UTF-8 everywhere." message is removed from plugins area and all the threads are working fine now Smile

Any one has a video of how to install Google SEO Plugin?


RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - DrXotick - 04-17-2015

I'm using social share buttons which pull "{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/showthread.php?tid={$thread['tid']}". Unfortunately this seems useless for social share. It only brings up the website name and general website meta, not the meta of the thread (thread title and thread excerpt from first post).

If I use a meta analyzer, the title seems to be set properly, but G+ and Facebook aren't pulling the title (just pulling website title, not thread title)

In regards to description, the meta analyzer can't find any description at all (yes, this is set properly in Google SEO plugin)

What am I doing wrong/How can I get this working properly?
