How to open previous threads from Google Results?

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well!  I have a question and hope someone can assist 🙂 

One of the most important and useful way to research for Qlik topics is to google it. Post this new Community refresh, I find that the google results pointing to Qlik Community doesn't work anymore.

For example: I googled QlikSense Market Share and get a few results, clicked on it and the Community page says it cannot be found. Used the Search function in Community and typed in Market Share and no results as well.

Does anyone know how to get a workaround to this issue?

Thanks in advance all!

Cheers

Re: How to open previous threads from Google Results?

Good question...

I was told that the old links should be kept using a redirection mechanism to the new content.

Not sure if this is fully functional yet. Maybe we should wait some time, as I also heard that the search index is being built right now, maybe there is still some other actions underway.

I tried with some links and got different results, from a 'maintainance pop up' (old platform layout style), to page not found info in the new platform style to a workinf redirect, like for this link

Hope we see improvement in this tomorrow

agree, we were told it can take a few hours post launch for indexing to be complete.    Let's definitely keep a close watch on this one.

Looking forward to a complete set of redirects as well.

But as even some classic threads seem to work quite well, I guess there's hope:

Use google cached results. Got a drop down option below the link..

Hi Stefan

Just want to loop back to this thread to confirm I can now open old threads from Google Results.

Pays to wait for a while, guess I was too impatient previously.

Thanks!
