Removed SID but Google has only indexed stand alone php
I have removed sids and i am using phpbb for my forum site.Googel has indexed only my stand alone pages like faq.php , viewonline.php ,search.php ,login.php etc .But hasn't crawled/indexed my forum topics.
So what could be the problem ?
How old is the site? How many backlinks do you have?
If the site is an older site and you have lots of backlinks, try resubmitting to google. i had a bunch of broken links indexed by google for about 8 months!!! i went back and resubmitted the new path to my forums and the number of indexed pages has shot up!
I already got a few PM's so I figured I would just post specific names of the mods I use, with links, below. I had to look them up, but I can tell you that all three of these work together fine on my forums. As always, make sure your latest version of PHPbb is up to date.
Google SiteMap Mod http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=296051
You must submit or ping the Google server yourself to let them know that you have updated your sitemap though. Not sure if there is a different mod which does this for you or not, but the mod I use for vBulletin allows for that feature.
I have the exact same problem as you Peon on one of my site. My site is about 5 months old and the homepage is a PR4. I tried everything suggested and the page still didn't get index. I am just waiting, and that might be the only thing to do.
