    • You can switch to elgg_hybridauth. I believe there is even a migration script

    • Can you tell me which elgg version are you using and the plugin version. Also it will be helpful if you can share the log details. It will help me in understanding the problem. Also do let me know your site link so that I can test it.

    • @Rohit, thank you very much for offering your assistance. I have taken Ismayils advice and switched to the Elgg_Hybridauth.

    I know that this topic is not a elgg specific topic, but I have been having a huge problem with my sites SEO and I dont know where to turn (The members here seem to be very knowledgeable so I'm giving it a shot) Here is my issue, My site...

      @Ismayil, I can understand that you get frustrated hearing the same questions over and over, but I am new at this and I can assure you it is new for me.... I admit that my post may have been a bit open ended so let me try and be a little more specific. Is there any reason (setting, or otherwise) that my site could be completely missed by search engines? I don't mean low ranking, I mean missed. 

      To further clarify let me answer your questions, 1) yes I have considered that my site does not have great content, however the site has numerous blogs  which are all public and surly should be found? But again this is not the issue. My concern is that even if i search for "My Site" on google it does not come up. This seems a little strange to me. Secondly There if not site in the main domain (lets not get into this it was a F*$#K Up) So the site is in a subdomain and I use a 301 redirect from the main domain.

    • I can't tell you anything without knowing at least your domain/subdomain. There are plenty of tools online to start debugging the issue. This is definitely not an Elgg related issue, more of a server config issue. You would be better off asking on stackoverflow.
