Disabling "old" forum

Post by UBT - Timbo » Thu Dec 17, 2015 10:59 pm

Hi all,

I've been monitoring whether Google and other spider-bots have been "finding" this new forum, rather than the old one....and it seems that despite me updating all the BOINC project links (where I'm an admin) to "point" to this new forum, even so, the old one is still getting "top billing" as it were.

So, I'm going to disable the old forum for a while and hopefully this might help Google and other search engines re-index this site.

I'll "re-enable" it in a fortnight or so's time, by which time maybe this forum will be getting an improved ranking ?
