SEO Question for Embedded version of Vanilla in wordpress
I installed vanilla at my local wamp server installation yesterday to test it before I can install it on my production site at http://www.environmentabout.com
I have a question related to the embedded version of vanilla in wordpress. Suppose I installed vanilla in localhost/vanilla and embedded the forum into into my wordpress page at localhost/blog/forum.. Now following are my questions related to the setup
1> The users would be publishing content through my wordpress page and the link structure there is http://localhost/blog/forum#/discussions The same URL for the actual installation page is http://localhost/vanilla/discussions. The users will copy the URLs from my forum page to post it on other sites but the search engines will be indexing the actual forum link structure. Wouldn't this result into loss of link juice and seo efforts as the incoming links will be pointing to a different page but the indexed pages have different links?
2> For some reason, when I try to visit actual installation page at localhost/vanilla, it doesn't redirect me to wordpress embedded page. I have used the wordpress pluginto embed the forum into my wordpress page and checked the option to force redirect users to wordpress page. So I visit both pages without being redirected.
