    I have 2 question. please help me about that:
    1- Google translate detect my forum language as Malay. (Malaysian language) But Forum is 100% English. how can I fix this?

    2- I have a website about dinosaurs [EDIT: "SEO link" removed. The site is www.dinodinosaurs.com , for those who may want to look. TheGAME1264] and for better SEO, by using some plugins, I want to use shorter URLs. Is this wise? How can I do that without losing my indexed links on google?

    1) This has never happened to me personally, so I can't speak to it. However, this may help you (specifically the meta Content-Language tag...the headers may be out of your depth, but that would be optimal):

    2) You'll lose the "link juice" of some of those links, for a period of time, regardless of what you do. Having said that, your plugin should 301 the old links to the new ones. If not, you'll probably have to learn how to do this using .htaccess.

    Mind you, this isn't going to solve all of your problems. Your biggest problem that i can see is that most of your forums are empty. Google in particular has stated that they don't want to return empty results pages if they can avoid it.

    Hi game1264, thank you for your reply and help.
    I Think 301 redirect is a good solution. also forum is very huge and It needs some time to filling all categories. but traffic is OK.

    301 is a great solution,
