@username brings thousends of broken links, bad for SEO
One of the basic features of Vanilla and also a good one has a massive downside. The @username link creator. My community adepts very well to this functionality, but within thousends of posts, users tend to misstype the usernames once and then. This leads to a lot of 404 and if you check your Google Webmaster tools you can see the broken links created.
Example - The username is @username, but people tend to write @usrnam, @usernam or similiar crazy ideas that only the devil is possibly able to lock into this world. Everyone of those misstyped creates a dead link. Abracadabra > 404.
I recently startet do maintain this (what a pain), by searching my forum for the broken links detected by Google Webmastertools. Let's see if this will improve my ranking or will affect my forums rating within search engines.
The Mentions Lookup Plugin could help, but for now it's not available for Button Bar and just for CLE.
Anyone else having issues with this.
