XF 1.2 SEO of Xenforo Forum

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?

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.
