If you want pages on this forum to appear in search results on those search engines, you have to let those bots trawl through the forum.

I don't think they are really looking for DM42 tips, well maybe Alexa, to be able to answer to anybody yelling in his kitchen: "how much pounds of flour do I need for my pancakes?"
with "let me pull my DM42 and do the calculation for you"
