Hi All,

I'm very happy that more and more of the old videopac.org members are pooring in  Smiley.
Now I need your help. As you can see I have already put up some boards like Anything Videopac, Games, Swap & Sell etc etc. I want to ask you all to put in idea's for other boards. Or maybe new categories ( the ones we have now are Hello everybody, Videopac, Collecting etc...)

And of course, every Idea is welcome  Smiley

To help people find this place easier through Google, or whatever, change the index code for ths forum.

Currently you have in the index.php file:

   <meta name="description" content="Welcome to the Videopac forum... - Index" />
   <meta name="keywords" content="PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum" />


I'm not sure where exactly this index.php file is on this forum software, but you could put in:

   <meta name="description" content="Welcome to the Videopac forum... - Index" />
   <meta name="keywords" content="PHP, MySQL, bulletin, board, free, open, source, smf, simple, machines, forum, odyssey2, G7000, G7200, G7400, philips, video games, Videopac, Odyssey" />


Main thing is, you need keywords in there that match what is on the forum. This will help Google index it better, and quicker! It has worked for me - I have never submitted my pages to any search engine - they always find me (and usually quickly too).

Just a thought... (be careful when/if you make this change) - ie., backup the files!  Wink

One other thing. Do you want this forum to be strictly Videopac!? As it stands, that is what it looks like! Just my opinion. I have no issue with the forum name, but you may want to include the Odyssey (brazil) and Odyssey2 (USA/Canada) in some of the wording in various areas of the Forums.

Such as changing 'Talk about anything concerning Videopac', to 'Talk about anything concerning Videopac/Odyssey2'.   

just my two bits...

Hi Ozyr,

You are absolutely right. The keywords have been added and I'm gonna change some boardnames right away.

Thanks  Grin

Yup, I saw that you just added the keyboards. It seems silly, but they really help with search engines - especially Google! Just something I learned during my HTML years. Give it about a week, and this forum should show up on the first page if you search for 'videopac forum'. I'd be surprised if it doesn't!

Thanks for the tip Ozyr.

The funny thing is that alreay some time ago I read that the search engines where going to ignore the keywords because so many websites where taking disadvantage of them. But apparantly this isn't so.

Anyway, keep the tips coming  Grin

I think you just answered it. Grg (George) h (H).  Okay, now I know...

So what is George doing with videopac.com!? It was probably announced on the old forum, but I don't remember it.

haha, yeah its me  Cheesy I bought it some time ago but haven't got round to setting it up. GRGH are my initials, and my first name is of course George.

Anyway I started trying to set something up some time ago, which is under www.georgeh.com/videopac but I decided I didn't want to do it like that so at some point I'll start again.

Just a note about pointing out the new forum, I finally updated my list on ozyr.com - also put up a paragraph on the update.  Can't hurt!  Wink

I wonder if it was that Meta stuff I told you about!

I just Googled 'Videopac Forum,' and this site was #2 on the list. My link to here is #6!

I told you within a week! Now people should find this place easier if they search for it!  Cool

P.S. Just did a Odyssey2 Forum search. This forum lists #1, with my link as #2!  Grin

Hey Ozyr,

Thanx for the good news, and for the MetaTips of course  Grin

Well, hopefully we can get the old bunch back together.
