SEO & Buddypress 1.2

Reported by: brokenforum's profile brokenforum Owned by:
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: major
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


It's great with a product such as buddypress, however it's a pure SEO pagerank destroyer. Some of the improvements can be fixed actially quite simple. Read here why.

Activity have duplicated urls on members page and activity # page.

Both return a title tag of the latest blog post, so they become identical very bad for SEO.

Solution: Use the title of the page or the first line of text as TITLE TAG for the page. Only have one activity shown. Not from member page. At member page should be nofollow.

Title tag is complely broken or to long.
Solution : The title tags should just return the TOPIC NAME as TITLE TAG.

So with the build in forums in buddypress its great however its not very SEO friendly because its makes so deep URL, the crawlers will rarely find it.

So is there any way you can change the BP forum topics to be BBpress style like
/forumID/forum/topicName etc.

Insteed of groupname/forumid/forums/topicName

It would be great help!

This kind of wide-ranging change is not in the cards for 1.3.

This one very likely could be considered in the works. Forums component has been retired in favor of bbPress, and with mercime working on changes like r10904, we could be making progress inadvertently.

I agree. We've made and are making progress. If there is any further suggestions for improvements, lets have them in new tickets.
