Discussions here are often very interesting, and at times incredibly helpful. If I had no clue about Lemmy, but I searched online for a topic that happened to be discussed in Lemmy, will that discussion appear in the search engine?

As a related question, do you think the discussion example would show up in the search results in the most informative way? I mean in an search engine optimization-kind of way.

We need a fediverse-friendly search engine then like https://search.noc.social/

Ug. This is slightly undesirable.
Saved only by the value gained from radically open accessibleness.
A society that is gridlocked based on privacy can leave alot of people out in the cold.
Very little progress has been done to create inclusive private spaces.

Are you talking about having good search engines in things like private communities in Lemmy or chat rooms in Matrix and things like that?

The devs have actually spent a lot of valuable time making the website isomorphic. Because that it can be rendered server side and can be crawled for search indexing.

That’s awesome. Big respect to the devs for the isomorphic conversion.

It takes a while for them to pick it up! Probably hasn’t been crawled yet this thread.

Hmm idk

Threads can take 12-24 hours to be crawled through for the first time.

Just tried finding some lemmy posts in DuckDuckGo. Doesn’t seem like they’re indexed

I’m pretty sure. I’ve seen a few of my posts on search engines.

Depending on how you feel about Google and privacy, having your Lemmy comments indexed could be seen as a negative thing.

Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
