    I was looking for my image / post of the Debt Burden in the US.
    My xenforo search didn't help so I tried google.
    I googled: debt burden site:xenforo.com
    google.get.more.discussion.results.jpg
    When you click on "Get More Discussion results" ... you get posts from other XENFORO sites.
    Interesting.
    Not sure if that is what google wants.
    There must be some SEO implications of this.

    It seems there are unseen ties that bind us !

    So this doesn't pull up more results from your own site but from other Xenforo sites? Hmmmmm....what implications does this have for SEO? This looks important to take notice of.

    it is just showing the results of other XF-pages due to the Xenforo.com mentioning in the Copyright-footer.

    As rich pointed out, it's showing sites that have a mention of "xenforo.com" in their footers (or elsewhere), and have content related to "debt burden".

    If you had done it like this "site:xenforo.com debt burden", your results would have only been from "xenforo.com".

    It's pretty simple logic. Nothing unusual here.

    You are searching for "debt", "burden" and "xenforo.com". Any websites which have these terms in one page will show up on Google whether or not they are Xenforo software.

    A good way to search for Xenforo-only forums would be by typing this into Google (with the quotes):
    Code:
    "XenForo™ ©2011 XenForo Ltd."
