You have been more than generous with your advice, @djsteveb. I’ll try this out (or rather ask my developer to!). I really appreciate your taking the time and sharing your experiences of this.
It does sound like a real hole that needs to be filled in elegantly by BP / Yoast / other, as we’re having to create workarounds to get there. And the trails on this topic seem to go back for years, so it’s not an unknown issue!
Again, thank you so much for your advice. Truly appreciated.
Thanks for the tip r.e. robots.txt.
As to whether we change them to pages, actually once you’re a member we do use them A LOT as groups, so making them pages would be challenging. But good thought, thank you.
Thanks again @djsteveb. Looking through all of this, it certainly seems like a big hole still left unfilled. If Google’s not seeing it, I’m almost thinking of a HORRIBLE workaround to get a process to create a new WP post of each group with a link back to the group. I’m assuming if Google’s not indexing the page content, duplication won’t be an issue for me. But who knows……
Hi and thank you, @djsteveb. In answer to your questions:
We don’t have a main groups page, only individual ones. Looking at the source of an individual one (e.g. http://www.freakyrivet.com/activities/defying-gravity-making-people-think-you-can/), I’ve searched and there’s no ‘robots’ text anywhere in the file.
Looking at the links you’ve sent, I note that Yoast’s plugin comes up a lot – I have it on my site as well.
