#330 closed defect (worksforme)

Mailing archives do not show up in Google searches

Reported by: ole Owned by: nhabili
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: Management and planning Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


The mailing list hosted at sourceforge does not show up in Google searches. This may be because they are dynamically generated.

I have tried everything I can such as submitting the link to Google, adding meta information to our TRAC link to the archives. It still doesn't work.

It is possible to search the archives from with SourceForge?, but it is not quite the same as using Google.

Can someone help?

Ole and myself (Ross) discussed this and sent the email below to Steve@ANU. A further enhancement is we could feed archived versions of email that Ole has collected into the proposed system at startup. This would capture email prior to the proposed system startup.

Hey Stephen

As you may know, we got this problem that Google can't search the SourceForge? email archives for anuga-user. This is most likely because those pages are dynamically generated.

Ross and I came up with the following solution:

1: We create a dummy user on datamining and also on the sourceforge mailing list. Let's call it aguna

2: User aguna subscribes to the archives and receives digests from the mailing list

3: User aguna reads them automatically (using cron and Python's pop mail library) and stores the digests somewhere in its public_html area

4: We link to aguna's home page and Google can search those files.

What do you think
