Hi @salikwaquas,

All is ok with your forum SEO. You don't need any other plugins. You just need to correctly manage your website Google Webmaster tools: https://www.google.com/webmasters/

Register and open property for your website. Then put your forum sitemap in Google to let it start indexing. Your forum sitemap URL is this: https://thespherical.com/community/sitemap.xml

 

BTW, your forum is already being indexed by google, i just searched one phrase and got results:

@martin yes it is submitted in webmaster. but the topic links in the sitemap has not being indexed since the submission and it has been around a week. Do I have to exclude links from yoast as @naveenarya123 is saying?

Also Martin I just checked the console I got this message

Duplicate, submitted URL not selected as canonical for https://thespherical.com/community/qa/

Hi @salikwaquas,

the second result in Martin's screenshot goes to a topic, so your topics are being indexed for sure. You just need to wait for more indexing or your website has other issues. I can say that the forum part is ok, and the forum SEO data work fine. So there is no any issue that can be solved from our side.

Just ignore that. This doesn't have any serious impact to your forum SEO.
