Forum missing from Google search

Postby brkdncr » Mon Mar 29, 2021 2:14 pm

I’ve noticed that google can’t pull up search results from the forum.

For instance, try using site:www.thelincolnforum.net in the search field and you’ll see that Google isn’t indexing, with information on how to correct it.

We've not been indexed ever. I don't know how to change it. Haven't looked into it.
I'ts probably a simple setting. Lemme check.

I've noticed that before, mainly on forums that don't use google to power their forum search.
At the same time the forum search here works better then other forums even ones that do use google.

yessss it finally works. for anybody that doesn't know how, type your query into google's search bar with "site:https://www.thelincolnforum.net/" after, and it'll search within this forum
for example
oil filter site:https://www.thelincolnforum.net/
