    How do I do the SEO of Xenforo Forum?

    I basically want to no-index a specific type of things. How can I do that and optimize my forum for SEO?

    What are you attempting to add noindex to?

    I intent to No-index the Members and the Resources Section... I only want the threads to be indexed...

    In that case I suggest using a robots.txt file in your web root. Example:

    By default, memberlist is "turned off." So, the only thing visitors and google will see is the "notable members" list. Just an FYI.

    This is standard going from 1.2 and up.

    BTW: SEO is a simple toggle, nothing much else needed to be done.

    Google is indexing the members as well in my case :(

    Hm. I see. Well, no-index your memberlist, then. :/

    I could understand that at my site, google's indexing members because it used to be on the old memberlist (a to z listing, ya know). And that I'm using sitemaps.
