My site (a phpbb forum, www.enginuity.org) has been up and running about 8 months now and I’m up to almost 1000 users. It’s still not listed in google.
I’ve done a lot to the site to make it look more google-friendly. I’m using mod_rewrite to make the links look static to users that aren’t logged in. I unlinked user profiles and other things to content that isn’t relevant to search engines. I added keywords and changed the title to make them more clear and useful. That’s all great for boosting me in the listings, but google isn’t even SPIDERING my site.
I’ve heard of tainted IPs and such, so I got a unique IP for the site a little over 2 months ago. I created sitemaps and submitted them to google at the same time. Still nothing.
What do I need to do?
