Re: Google sitemap for bbPress?



My point was that having a sitemap doesn’t make your forum more search engine friendly. I mean, if you have bad page titles, bad meta tags, poor keyword density, none of those things change by listing all your URLs in a file and submitting that to Google.

Don’t get me wrong; I think the sitemap is a good idea, but it can’t fix anything wrong with your site. It just lists all the content that is available on your site and submits that to the search engine. It’s almost a crutch for having BAD SEO:

including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google’s normal crawling process.”

If the site were optimized, Google’s normal crawl process could handle it.

Again, don’t get me wrong, I think sitemaps are a good idea. I use them. But it doesn’t *fix* any SEO problems with your site. That was my only point.
