Lack of Interest Include prefixes in title and meta tags

    Here is a suggestion I would like to get off my chest. Currently XenForo uses prefixes for filtering content within a forum but it doesn't change title and meta tags. My idea is to make prefixes more prominent in search results. I will use the following URLs as an example:

    Code:
    http://xenforo.com/community/forums/have-you-seen/
    http://xenforo.com/community/forums/have-you-seen/?prefix_id=34
    The prefix is XF1.3, both have the same title:

    Code:
    <title>Have You Seen...? | XenForo Community</title>
    And the same meta content tag:

    Code:
    <meta content="This forum spotlights some of XenForo's interesting features. Spotlights on features in upcoming releases will be posted here." name="description">
    If the title and meta content tag would include the prefix and someone spefically googles XF1.3, google can serve him with better results for what the person is looking for.

    For the title, I suggest this:

    Code:
    <title>XF1.3 - Have You Seen...? | XenForo Community</title>
    And for the meta tag I suggest this:

    Code:
    <meta content="XF1.3 - This forum spotlights some of XenForo's interesting features. Spotlights on features in upcoming releases will be posted here." name="description">
    Granted I see one problem with this. And that's when prefixes changes frequently such as in the bug reports or suggestions forums. Perhaps there are better solutions than this? Tags?

    This is a great idea, but it seems a lot of people aren't too bothered about good SEO. :(
