I got a widget site that shares forum db's. Right now I have two sites that share one db. One old site, and one new site. The original db had already 2,000,000 posts in it. I only share certain community forums with the other new site.
The new site will suddenly have 1,000,000 plus new pages in it. And I just started it 3 weeks ago. However I put noindex in all those pages. How will this effect my new site and my old site?
Should I put nofollow as well.
I do this, because I have a forum network of widget sites that uses a Single Sign on System. It uses vbulletin software. I wanted to do this, because I wanted my users to have their information transfered to other forums without having to start fresh. This way they always have their reputation and post count. And those shared forum, which is like genearl chat, tech, spam, etc etc, which doesn't have to deal with the main widget, can be used by the entire network. This way each new site doesn't have to start it's own common forums all over again. This way they can interact with the other forums.
So bascailly, am I in deep doodoo here? For wanting to share my forums? Even though i have noindex and/or nofollow?
