Search Engine Indexing / Suggestions ?
« on: April 01, 2020, 01:59:50 pm »
I have submitted my forum to many search engines, except for google that has stopped letting people just upload our url's any longer..


But I can not find my forum on Google, who I thought would have found it by now just by the nature of the bot beasts..


Anyone have any suggestions how to get a CreateAForum indexed ?

Hmmm..


Ok, so it is asking me to download the HTML file and upload it to the forum.. Maybe you are able to do that ?  Unless I am able to somehow ?


Code: [Select]
google-site-verification: googlee09a0e9fc0a6f959.html



Then it asked me to copy this meta tag and paste it into the head section which I did at Style Manager>Meta Meta Tags: - Inside <head> tag box.. 


Code: [Select]
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="WhG4Hvvkx8ITPUhwgL_Vg91gJkTlpV8G2asB6MKjhRk" />

You can use the meta tag instead of uploading a file.

I did both, and just finished with Bing..


Both Google and Bing shows "success" !

Guess I can just go ahead and ask on this forum... I can not find the sitemap url for my other forum.. Tried using the "inspect" page, but not seeing it..


I don't think I ever did try to submit this http://snuffbottle.smfforfree.com/ forum.
