I've searched XF and this doesn't seem to have been reported, but I've found it affecting hundreds of XF2 sites out in the wild, so thought it best to mention it.
I built a test XF2 site and after Google indexed it I noticed a lot of the page listings has the description: "This site uses...

If a member uploads a bunch of images at once with the exact same name, then Google will give the error: Duplicate, Google chose different canonical than user
Therefore the images are not indexed by Google.
I suggest to fix this by adding a number to bulk uploads. i.e.

I have a wordpress on my root directory so the forum was installed inside the /forum directory.
This was previously a vbulletin and was migrated to xenforo. however I am running to an issue with the URLS. the old VB urls are /forum/introductions but on xenforo right now it is...
I'm wondering if having a Welcome Message is worth the page space it occupies as it takes up almost 2/3's of the homepage's landscape. I'm also curious if the main Logo is too large because it takes up a good part of the page as well. If I make it smaller, then it will hide the background...
Does anyone know if RSS feeds hurt my site's SEO rankings? I've been super lazy and just use articles from the #1 site called "Operation Sports" to use as the main articles on my homepage.
I'm familiar with backlinks and I know I'm helping them more than myself. I also know that "unique...
Does anyone know how best (or if there's an SEO need) to make urls more friendly in XenForo 2? I know there's an option for it in the admin settings, but I'm not sure how to approach it the best way.
My issue is there's a thread id attached to the end of my urls and I think it would be cleaner...
I want to switch from vBulletin to XenForo. Everything seems fine so far, but I need help with URL rewriting.

With Xenforo 2.0.1 there is a possibility with the noFollow attribute on all external links. In the ACP I find no such option where I can adjust that.
I would like to post in the forum any external link NoFollow attribute.
Can someone help me?
Thanks in advance.
I wonder if there is a way to add the page number at the end of the forum meta description. The problem is that every page of every forum shows the forum description as meta description, so all those pages appear like duplicates in Google Search Console. If we add "page 2", "page 3"... and...
Xenforo still retains the code style of vBulletin:
<span style="font-size: 26px">XenForo Resource Manager 2.0</span><br>
<span style="font-size: 22px">Multiple uploaded file support</span><br>
A single resource may now contain more than one uploaded file. If a resource contains...
Google Webmaster Tools sees XenForo Content Tag pages as separate pages, instead of the continuation of the same content list. GWT reports all second pages of content tag lists as 'Pages with duplicate title tags'.
