We have been holding fairly steady in the search rankings for 'Rolemaster Forums.' But I have been noticing that our pages are being indexed with the page titles of 'index, viewtopic, or viewforum.' These are the actual names of the PHP files that get called when you access the index page, a forum page and a topic page. It's part of a default phpBB install. Has not bothered me in the past but as we can't seem to crack the top five in a search ranking for the aforementioned terms I was thinking on how I could improve this. It also, struck me that those terms were mostly unprofessional. So, I discovered a KB article to remove them over at phpBB.com and another user pointed the way to remove the 'index' part on the index page. So…the end result is now all you will see is the forum title and topic title in your browser's header bar AND in Google. The index page also lists now as 'Wandering Monk Rolemaster Forums • Rolemaster Home". Hopefully that will help us improve even more in the search rankings. And, even if it doesn't, it looks more professional.
