    hello everyone,

    I'm willing to use phpbb for my new forum, and i was wondering if it is bad for seo ( search engine optimization ) ?!
    SEMrush
    because i used it once like 2 years ago and the only page that was indexed at google is the main page only ...

    thanks

    No not at all. When I ran my phpBB forum, I did only basic SEO and had thousands of the forum indexed.

    Not really. You can always beef it up anyways using MODs and such. Here's an example.

    These guys have a modified version of phpBB that is more SEO-friendly.

    Use a non-Hotmail, Gmail, or Yahoo! Mail email address. Bad/useless idea, but it's their call.

    phpBB is not bad for search engine optimization at all. Just use the certain mods that help you with SEO and you should be set. From my experience with phpBB, I'd say the forum software is actually really SEO-friendly as I got thousands of pages indexed with very, very basic SEO work done.

    Yes versus MyBB is bad in seo. But you can edit and work on it, it's not a bad forum software.

    Not at all. I think the best change your can do for SEO, is to change the overall_header.html
    Default is: Site name - Page name
    Should be: Page name - Site name
