We had a really interesting discussion on Xenadmins last week - about forums falling out of favour with Google. There were some great points made in the thread, and particularly from forum seo expert Adam H, with which I agreed: And Discourse is doing the same for forums - have a look here: http://community.badvoltage.org/t/welcome-and-introductions/16 and how the thread is summarised at the top - no need to trail through pages, it's all there for you. Google will love this, they have already stressed that if a site is good for a user it will count towards page rank. Anyway - what do you think? Do you agree? Disagree? I'd love to hear what @Mike and @Kier think too - will we see something like this in XF soon?
