    You actually do not want your member pages and their status updates to be cached by google because of privacy. There is no privacy settings in BuddyPress and the last thing your users want is a site owner forcing their updates to search bots.

    yeah thats okay…but why not the forum ?

    sven danke :)….

    funktioniert das auch einwandfrei? Ist es eine “stable” version…

    thanks !

    any other suggestions are welcome…???




    Yeah I’m not sure how Buddypress get’s pages like this indexed in google (I found this topic with a Google search).

    But none of my forum topics are getting indexed by Google at all, I have a high authority site that usually get’s indexed in a couple of minutes. But Buddypress Topic Pages don’t get indexed at all.

    it has nothing to do with privacy, it is about not getting duplicate content indexed.
    It’s true, the default install of BP is SEO suicide.

    You need to craft your robots.txt file as well as use seopress.

    One feature that seems to be lacking is the display of page numbers in meta title and desc on paginated pages.

    Still trying to sort that one.
