View Full Version : Forum or Community?

10-09-2008, 12:02
During last few days I was looking at how search engines like Google or Yahoo are collecting informations from http://www.thinBasic.com and http://community.thinbasic.com and I have the impression that the many info present in this forum are in reality not very well indexed. I think the problem is partially related to the fact that community forum is using a 3rd level domain. So I was considering to move community forum as a subpage of the main web site, something like http://www.thinbasic.com/forum and leave in http://community.thinbasic.com a redirect page to automatically redirect to new location.

What do you think?
Do you think it will create problems?

Don't know, if it helps then move it.

Because we usually listen to our user base, we would have more opinions.

Please let us know what you think. Just voting without any comment is enough.
In few days I will decide and make relevant changes.

Thanks a lot

Hi Eros,

if it will help, and if it will maintain current forum content why not.
The redirect page sounds good. It would be nice if the "redirecter" could capture the bad link and change:




This would eliminate dead links from older times. Should not be hard to do as it is basically text substitution.
