    I don't know if I should report this, but Google is indexing void search results pages from xenforo.com, it should be nice to optimize Google indexation by default with a robots.txt that only allows the indexation of content pages.

    I agree that noise pages like the search results pages should be blocked from being indexed.
    A simple rule disallowing /community/search/* in the robots.txt would do the trick.

    Yes, allowing search result pages to be indexed is actually explicitly discouraged by Google in their webmaster guidelines.

    Using a meta tag to prevent these pages from being indexed now.
