News module lacks of url rewrite and it's bad for seo. I can't imagine module without rewrite url and meta description options. Google can't imagine it either

Yup, they are not crucial, but they help alot. So, still... we can say chat having rewritten urls is standard in 2011. for nearly every cms, except Xoops (few modules have it, but there is no system support). :)

My understanding is that the Core team will be looking into SEO in XOOPS 2.6

FWIW, I don't think "SEO-friendly" URLs matter:


My opinion is that SEF URLS only matter on search result pages because a user will more likely click on a nice URL then on one with many parameters. A friendly URL can also give the user a preview of the page content.

SEF(I would call it search user friendly 'SUF'), in my opinion, has nothing to do with SEO. I have one XOOPS site on first page(many times on first place) for several of the most important keywords of its niche and I never used URL rewriting.

More important yet, many of my search engine traffic comes from the 'not so important' keywords. It is not that important to get the most relevant ones. What you really need is unique content, the more unique content you have, the more successful you site will be.

Friendly URLS have low priority in my XOOPS feature request list. I also find them very hard to implement on the current XOOPS architecture.

The difference for me is that the feed has rss news with backend.php work, but lacks the RewriteEngine, while the two previous methods, are opposite in xnews.

xnews would be complete if it worked well with rss feeds backend.php
