why flarum is not displaying hyperlinks in page HTML source? for any tag page or home page, we see a lot of discussions but those discussions are only seen by humans, not by any spider or crawler/Google bot.
internal linking is very important for any website since any SEO bots/google spiders only rely on hyperlinks to visit other pages, if there is no linking between pages how would spiders/bots knows the website is well interlinked and connected?
for this reason, i think they have introduced the concept of sitemap telling spider we have so and so pages with us i think sitemap is not all enough i request the team to change these commented links to hyperlinks. example images are the comparison of Flarum and NodeBB
Justoverclock coming to related discussion extension they have also done the same thing calling it
that's how spa works
if we have a discussion page in flarum we are showing a dead-end page to the spider
please let the poor baby spiders crawl around the website and visit as many pages as many times as possible so it can go through all our website content and rank better.
