My ignorance here again, but does that mean at the bottom of the CSS? I'm still learning bits of the ACP in MyBB eh..

I'm uncertain of your control panel setup, but the standard MyBB way would be to log into your Admin Control Panel . . . .

Click on "Templates & Styles".
Click on "Templates" (left hand sidebar).
Click on the link to your theme's Templates; as in "Theme Templates".
Scroll to bottom of list and click on "Ungrouped Templates".
Click on "headerinclude".
At the very bottom of that bunch of code being displayed, past the information I posted in the previous post.

I should be able to change the site name in the code so it can be added to both sites? Both are MyBB..

RE: RANDOM comments - Sandy - 10-21-2019

Successfully added to site linked here, I think, is anything supposed to show in the threads or is this just for the bots?

RE: RANDOM comments - Sandy - 10-21-2019

I hope I did right, I slightly edited the code so I could put it in the second site and changed the names where ever needed, and did the way you did it, hopefully it'll work on site two as well?

Nothing new showing, not sure if it's supposed to.. :S I may clear my browser and check, had to do that after the shoutbox was added so it'd show..

meta tags aren't displayed, they are within the code of the site itself. To see them, you'll need to view the Source of the page.

I inspected and found the tags properly in place. Hopefully these will assist you in your search engine presence.

Cheers.. I presume changing the site name where ever needed will mean it'll work on my other MyBB site?

I presume this gives the bots extra info about the site/s, or helps them get it, and attracts more bots?

RE: RANDOM comments - Skyon Archer - 10-22-2019

The title and description meta tag:
Google Wrote:help control how your site's pages will appear in Search

The remainder are for use when someone posts a link from your site on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Examples of end results:

Ahh, helps thanks, you know me, thick as a plank when it comes to codes etc, hence my asking.... Presumably the bots like us more if we have these codes?
