View Full Version : search engines not picking up reviewpost items at all

We're having a problem where search engines aren't picking up ANY pages that we have in reviewpost. They hit our forum pretty hard and the forum is ranked well. But nothing from reviewpost is. Has anyone come across this and know of a solution? We have spider friendly URLs turned on.

Not really sure but then again google keeps changing how it wants to enter things so not sure.

Well that's not good at all.
The entire basis of our site is product reviews, which is why we bought reviewpost, yet it fails in spider-friendliness. If we can do reviews nicely but they never get picked up by bots b/c of the way the page is php coded, then the purchase was useless.
I know it's not the content of the review itself b/c I can take the content of a review, post it in my forums and check a few days later and voila, there it is in Google linked to the thread in the vbulletin forum.

Well we have no control over google or how they scan pages. Our spider friendly thing is proven to improve page scans but as stated if google changes how they do things that is out of our control.

Google changing things never effects our forum ranking at all. However, I haven't heard of recent changes with Google's algorithm. Also, Yahoo doesn't use anywhere near the same criteria that Google uses and nothing from our reviewpost shows up in Yahoo either, yet our vbulletin does.
Additionally, Google, Yahoo and AOL are indexing everything on our site EXCEPT for reviewpost.
