#11

Cause meta tags should be related to its content. This kind of modification is only good in index.php but not in all pages.


whats the solution?

Just don't use meta tags on a forum.
A forum is meant for discussion and uses its own search engine to search the forums for posts, users, etc.

I can understand using adwords or meta tags on a web page, but it just seems kinda silly to put meta tags on a forum.

Just my $.02.
I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me. And tore me to pieces, and threw every piece into a fire.

the meta tags are not so that you can search your own site more effectively, they are so that external sites/search engines can better locate your site and properly categorize it and find it when people search those terms.

Dynamic meta tags are best and the Google SEO plugin supports them on several pages.

Is there any plugin that allows me to add a meta description tag per forum/category for google sitelinks?

You can put it in your theme's index or headerinclude template depending on what that publishing site prefers.

I am surprised that our MY BB "experts" don't understand this simple tutorial.
The aim is to add meta tags in the index only which is lacking in mybb.
You can use Google SEO plugin to dynamically pull the meta description from the first 200 characters of any thread but it doesn't offer meta tags and description to the index.

How exactly is it a bad seo practice to add meta tages and description to a certain page?

As the op correctly posted, the meta tags and description should be in the index only (not headerinclude).
Thanks.
