Google Showing Multiple Results for Forum Posts

PostBy: Richard S. On: Thu Oct 01, 2009 1:28 pm

Google has been identifying forum post for quite some time now, results will often show information like:

15 posts - 7 authors - Last post: Mar 3, 2006


Just noticed this which is really nice as it will make sites like this stand out in the results:

(20.19 KiB) Viewed 14 times
View: New PagePopup • Select:BBCode
[nepathumb]14324[/nepathumb]



This is the result for "Keystoker" but a quick search through some of the other major keywords shows a lot results with the additional links.

Nice, hope they keep this feature as they have tried stuff like this in the past and stopped.

Actually it can but the problem with phpBB is that it doesn't use the "alt" attribute correctly which is one thing Google relies on heavily for categorizing images. It's on my ever growing to do list to add a field for this on image uploads. I'll probably add a form so people can supply alt attributes for old images that never got them.

As of right now Google can't index them as I have those files denied to them but once I decent amount of images with the alt attribute I'll let it loose on them.
