Why on earth do you have all of that?  Seems a bit overkill.

The line that is killing it is this...

User-agent: *
Disallow: /*action*

You're telling all user-agents to not visit any links in smf that have action in them.

I'm not sure what's up, but I've got everything installed and working.

However, I'm not getting indexed well at all. In fact, I'm sitting at less than 200 URLs where I easily had several thousand minimum with vB prior to the conversion. I understand this takes time, and I given it a couple weeks to see. I guess what troubles me the most is the XML sitemap shows only about 8,000 URLs - far less than the 11,000+ threads I have at the least. robots.txt, etc. are all fine. I've increased the Google indexing for an example without much change.

Is there something I'm missing with only 8,000 URLs and so few actually indexed? Just to compare, I installed vB sitemap and within 24 hours I had an additiona 1200 pages indexed.

The sitemap only provides a list of topics and boards to the search engines, it makes no promise or guarantee that you will be indexed... there is no mod that can and I can't tell you why vB works better than SMF with indexing.  Search engines index content not just because it's there, but because they deem it worthy to be indexed.

As for the number of URLs in the Sitemap; you didn't mention which version of SMF you're using, but if using SMF 2.0, the xml sitemap only displays topics viewable to guests.  If using SMF 1.1.x, the xml sitemap will display whatever the viewer has access to see.  A guest (google) would only see topics a guest can see.  As an admin, you would be shown all topics in the XML sitemap.  Since you as an admin can view all topics, so if you have some that aren't available to guests, that is where the difference comes in.

Well that's what I'm concerned about. If the only real variable is the software...which by the way is SMF 2.0 RC2.

I'm rehashing the sitemap just to make sure. I don't necessarily feel like it's a sitemap issue with your above points. I'm going to double-check all of the forums, but they should certainly be accessible to guests and therefore search engine bots. One thing I did notice is that I used the Googlebot download tool in Google webmasters, and it seems to download only a portion of the sitemap. It abruptly stops a little ways down in the middle of an entry. Just not sure if that's by design using the tool, or if maybe that's what is actually happening to the sitemap. I know the vB mod generated 4-5 XML pages for my forum, and then it looks like the MyBB mod does the same. I'm not sure if that has any bearing at all, but it's a thought. The only other difference is that it's compressed as far as vB.

I'm definitely not blaming anything yet, so please don't take it the way that I'm complaining about the sitemap. I appreciate the work you do and releasing it to this community, so thanks!

If googlebot is stopping half way through, then it may not like how long the page takes to generate... I put in set_time_limit calls to extend out how much time PHP can take to generate the page, but if google doesn't respect that it can take longer, that might be an issue I"ll have to look into.

As for multiple pages - I never really considered it.... would be something to look into.

Is there  a way, when showing topics, not to have the board name linked?
Also, could one define the number of topics per page?

If you have board names linked it makes 200 links per page, which, I think, is twice the recommended amount by Google.

This very page has over 294 links now that I've posted to it... I can't see how the number of links per page would hamper a bot, at least not this day and age in technology where it takes a fraction of a second to preg_search the page to capture all links.

As for your questions though: Number of topics per page: not settable by an admin setting, but it can be changed in the Sitemap.php Source file (assuming you're using 2.0), under the listOptions array for topics.  Same for linked boards, it would have to be edited under the listOptions for topics

Keep the links on a given page to a reasonable number (fewer than 100).

There is a significant amount of debate as to whether or not that actually matters... Google Search

As for the code

Code: (Find) [Select]
'format' => '[<a href="' . $scripturl . '?board=%d.0">%s</a>] <a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=%d.0">%s</a>',

Code: (Replace) [Select]
'format' => '[%s] <a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=%d.0">%s</a>',

I installed this mod today, but the register of SMF 2.0 tells me these errors

It's normal ?

That means your language strings were not updated in your language file.  If you have any other Modifications.[language].php file OTHER than english, you need to copy what is in it to the other languages.
