Forum not appearing in search engines
« on: February 13, 2013, 07:15:38 pm »
Hello on Monday 11th February I created a forum for the supporters of my local football team:Abingdon United. (Here if you're interested) On the features and options page  I put the words 'Abingdon United Forum' seperated by commas in the Meta keywords associated with forum part. Yet when I type in Abingdon United, or Abingdon United forum etc into a search engine; it doesn't come up. The only way to access it is via link. Can you help me with this?
Thanks for your time
Harry

Just because your website is titled "Abingdon United" it doesn't mean that it will automatically appear on front page in search engines. It seems that you chose a name that's not unique so your forum has to compete with other websites that has much more content which makes search engine bots think that their forum is more relevant.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

And the more visits to the website the more popular, so if you wait it will come up when you google it. Or do Abingdon United Forums. That works for me.
If you need help, just ask!
