I'm trying to understand how google indexes my Nodebb forum, maybe one of you could help me ?…
Obviously i'd like to get as many clicks on links to my forum as possible, but from what i'm gathering, whenever people search for words that do appear on my forum, they get different links (to the last post that's been published in a thread , or to a random page within the thread).
e.g. there's a thread about a specific movie on my forum, the thread holds the same title as the movie itself, but when people google the name of the movie + forum, they get results pointing to a post in the middle of the thread, not to the first page.
So no matter how successful a topic of discussion is on my site, it never really gets the recognition i wish it had on google, not because it's not indexed but because it is indexed several times, via multiple links, some of which hold no specific interest.
How can i send clear instructions to google on which pages are relevant / important to index ?
(sorry if this is a silly question, i'm clearly no expert… 😕)
