    Thanks you very much! I have no more ideas for creating new plug-ins. In order to find out in what format the search plugin can use the URL Helper. On my projects Friv 2, Friv 4, Friv 1000 and Kizi Games search is already realized with the help of this plugin. I also think this topic will be useful not only for me - perhaps someone else besides me will undertake the creation of new plug-ins. Many thanks for this article.

    This is a very useful plugin for SEO, I will recommend all moodle users to make sure you are using Postgres database and MYSQL when working with moodle. Don't miss this plugin, I use this plugin for all my clients websites using moodle. I work in SEO agency in Dubai, we have few clients who use the moodle platform, this is one of our obvious recommendation to moodle sites.

    Indexing has never been a hassle for websites owner as sooner or later search engines index your pages through webmaster access. The problem which occurred this year was that the crawling rate has been down to a very low percentage for a website now. My own assignment help website used to get links crawled every week but now it takes around a month or two to get them crawled as the self crawler has been shut down.

    Absolutely agree with your opinion! But in order to create new plug-ins it is necessary to have a precise technical task. I also use the Moodle search plugin on my Friv, Juegos Kizi, Affen Spiele and Friv 2 sites and are quite happy with the result. But for the development of new versions, let's exchange ideas. Together we will turn the mountains!
