Suggestion: Search engine friendly URL's

A useful feature for the next version of Invision Power Board would be the widespread implementation of search engine-friendly URL's, if a forum admin chooses to enable them. This would make popularizing forums a lot easier for forum admins. :)

Spiders index IPB urls just fine. :blink:



Especially the lofi page.

It may crawl some but ask any Search Engine Optimization specialist and they will tell you that the best way to increase your ranking and amount of content crawled is to go with search engine friendly URLs.

Our web site had URLs like the IBP ones only a year ago and since changing it our Alexa rank went from 100k to 10k...

I'm not disputing SEF's - that conversation just is too much to be delved into within a feature suggestion thread.

Likewise, I haven't closed this or the other topic.

However, keep in mind, we do support Windows users too, so .htaccess rewrites won't work (if using IIS).

I agree, and even some linux users don't or might not have the ability to modify their .htaccess file depending on their setup.

i think that vbulletin handles some kind of search engine friendly url by default, anyone knows how they do it? is this also through a mod_rewrite or do they use other means?
