Re: getting the forum picked up by google
Yah there’s a bbPress Google sitemap plugin:
* http://boakes.org/talk/topic/sitemap-plugin-for-bbpress (the original, I believe)
* https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bbpress-sitemap-generator/ (I think this is an updated version)
I tried the earlier version, and it turned out that it regenerated a sitemap on every topic created/edited/deleted. This created a lot of overhead on my server, and slowed the process of posting a topic down to a crawl.
It may work better now on that front? It’d be awesome if there was a way to have topic creation add an item to a queue somewhere, and then have the backend process the queue periodically (at a later point) to update the sitemap. That way, the process of creating a topic itself doesn’t get slowed down.
