@Joykiller We're on a pretty old version of Ghost actually
Yeah thats what I thought.
Some of the topics are not indexing on google
But unnecessary things like registered users profile, their following, followers details are indexed on google
Is there any way to make it correct?
Or is that indexing by Crawl bot?
Sitemap have only topics, posts.
I've been facing the same problem.
When I check my website in google using site:https://mydomain.com
Then I only see user groups .....People who follow .....
Other than those URLs....i don't see any posts being indexed.
Don't know the logic.
Even those users are banned ...so why google indexes them ..?
@srinik @Varun-Ganesh-D We do not control how or what pages Google indexes. We provide them with hints via
sitemap.xml, and you should check to make sure that those pages contain the topics you want to have indexed.
We currently do not include user data (following/followed/posts), since we feel it is superfluous data, but when Googlebot lands on a page, it will explore the page and find other links, including links to user profiles and so on and so forth.
Typical reasons posts and topics are not indexed is because the category itself is hidden from spiders or inaccessible to all but registered users, which the Googlebot is not.
@julian ok got it.
Doing trail and error method to exploring each and every functions of forum.
However Users information is hidden(email and dob etc)
