Anyway to change titles?
Hi, somebody I asked in a Google forum a few days ago, cos I have a problem with my website showing up today and not tomorrow day yes and day no.... told me that after having run a whatever search he thinks my site suffers from "cannibalism" because it have the very same title in sooooo many pages
Actually he says he is surprised how well its ranking particularily having "this problem?" but he says I could benefit having a look into this matter
I thought the titles would get variety when giving titles to the categories and subforos etc but apparently this dont seem to be the case (in my very short knowledge please keep this on mind)
Actually I include an screenshot from my stats where it shows that he its actually kind of right
Can this title be altered in some places so that does not shows exactly the same on every single forum page? Would this be a good practice?
/foro-de-piano/ is not actually a topic or forum title but the "base" url of the forums. It is the very same everywhere, it is normal and there is no other way to do it. And this is how it is done in most forums.
AFTER the /foro-de-piano/ text is the title of forums and subforums and topics and i see nothing wrong in those.
And to be honest changing urls is the worst thing to do in an established forum or Wordpress. The proper base url (forums or community or whatever) and the proper forum names and subforums, should be well selected when you START a site or a forum or when your site/forums are empty and there is need for that.
Thanks Dimalifragis 🙂
I was not talking about the url foro-de-piano/.... but about the "title" Foro de Piano on the left of the screanshot. Otherwise, YES, Im the 1st one that dont want url changes. I was talking about "titles changes/variations"
But anyway, that person who told me that probably didnt knew very well what he was talking about, or perhaps he knew and he could be sort of right but not when it becomes to a forum that probably would need to be yes or yes on this very way in all or many forums
In any case I check my main BY FAR competitor and he got listed on this very same way 19000 urls, so probably this "cannibalism" thing does not apply to forums...
Obviously cant be something that very wrong at all as I just advanced another two positions and Im now 4th. Yet, almost deliver not trafic... blody hell 🤣
Sorted, this could be closed. Thanks 🙂
I spend 10 minutes to write a detailed reply about your issue and suddenly i got "something is wrong with your data" and some Crawler protection message from THIS site. And lost all the post.
I can't post it again, sorry.
In short YES all your Titles are the same for some reason. I dunno why.
ahhhhhh, Im so sorry mate. Happened to me sometimes something similar and there its nothing more annoying than such a thing happening....
I hope that at least you wrote it in a pc, not in a mobile that its 3 times the wor 🤣
Thanks for having done it in anycase, Im as grateful as if I would have managed to read it 🙂
btw: In short YES all your Titles are the same for some reason. I dunno why
You meant then that this its not normal and the way it should be? I was kind of "happy enough" when I read your previous answers, now you got me thinking again hahahahaha
