managing search engine crawl on a private Buddypress site

  • Earl_D


    So the last few weeks search engine crawls have brought my BP site to its knees even with a 2gig of ram on my VPS

    Wondering if anyone has tips for dealing with search engines on a private BP network. Really the only pages I want then to index are the homepage and about pages everything else should be indexed.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Have you tried any of the methods available via google search?
    For example:

    How To Stop Search Engines From Indexing Specific Posts And Pages In WordPress

    I’d look at increasing performance generally rather than specifically focusing on trying to block search engines.

    Like… I don’t know what other plugins or themes you are running, or how well they are written, nor anything about your hosts’ performance, but you need to look into those. I’d also look at making sure you have an object cache available and configured for WordPress if there isn’t already.



    @djpaul do you have recommendation for object caching. Pretty much had turned chachingnof becausing from what I was reading didn’t work well for BP. Running on VPS which can be configured to run Php xcache.
