    Hi All,

    Doing a lot of work behind the scenes to improve our search rankings and indexing with google. I have changed our url structure to be more friendly to search engine systems. So far it seems ok and I have noticed no ill effects. If anything is not right, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Just letting you know, I've just gone through a number of my old APUG bookmarks and clicked on them to see how the redirects are going and all is still very well :smile: As you say, 'Today's Posts' has temporarily gone belly up, but the world probably won't end while it's being fixed :D Nice work, Sean!

    In the past week I've browsed a couple old APUG posts where the links to other old "apug" threads don't work. This isn't related to the URL structure, but mapping conversion between old site and new. Should I report these when I stumble across them?

    Sometimes when I do google searches I end up getting the print version of the page rather than the standard view. This was happening before with APUG and also now with Photrio. Next time it happens I will try to remember to send you an example.

    This could be from way way back when were were even before vbulletin so not sure those super old links will ever work. One thing on my list is running a link checker and cleaning up old dead links, a big job so need to get through some other items first.
