I just checked how google indexes the jforum.net site and found a problem.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=+site%3Awww.jforum.net+action+quote&btnG=Search

I think it is unnesessary to have google index all the edit pages. Some ways to prevent it.

  • use a path for edit actions that is disabled in the robots file. (downside :many users will forget to edit their robots.txt file)
  • set the meta tag to noindex in the page if it is in edit mode
  • use the new rel='nofollow' attribute in the url for links to edit actions
