    @Todd after I check again, it is due to the canonical URL. search engines do not index main page www.example.com but www.example.com/discussions. Can I make the main page index by search engines? not www.example.com/discussions. I search some discussion with this topic but i cant find fix this.
    cc @R_J and @hgtonight
    thanks

  • change it in your robot.txt files i wouldn't take the indexing away from the forum tho. I can its set to such.

    The "problem" is that the main page isn't indexed because the main page tells the search engine it is not homepage.com/ but homepage.com/recent. Therefore there is no main page that can be indexed.
    I must admit it feels like it should be the other way around: hompage.com/recent as what you can see in the browser and homepage.com as canonical link. On the other hand, I think Google strives for ranking those side up that have a good user experience. I would hate it if I had to enter hompage.com/recent instead of only hompage.com/. I do not have an advice in this case :neutral:

    But deleting the root page from the robots.txt so that it shouldn't be indexed when the problem is that the root page isn't indexed doesn't sound like a solution ;)

    you are right, however i was making the statement based on the fact i can see the indexing was disallowed... maybe i saw it wrong.

    @R_J thanks for your explain, the conclusion is there is no way to make main page indexable by search engine.. sadly :(
