vBSEO ? Pros & Cons
« on: 05-02-2010, 23:18:15 »
Forum SEO is a real big headache for most forum owners and I was wondering what everyone thought about VBSeo. It's got a pretty hefty price tag but does it really pack a punch for your forum rankings like it says. I used to use a zoints powered SEO plugin for VB and it was free. It worked great and allowed you to create SEO urls.

Does vbSEO offer anything more and is VB itself fine on it's own without any SEO plugins ?

I've used vbSEO, and the zoints SEO plugin on my forums. In fact I've used it on separate forums and for some reason my vbSEO forum has done very well in the search engines. And It's not so much a major SEO boost to the main keyword but the fact that loads of my pages and threads get picked up for long tail keywords.

I'm not sure how it works but google loves my threads, and vbSEO seems to give them that love factor. On my non vBSEO forums I don't get as many indexed threads on google. So it's definitely added traffic for me. P.S the niche is gaming, not sure if that makes a difference as i'm sure some niches may well be more difficult to optimise for!

I do not like paid forums like VB, but as I know many people use vbSEO and probably it is good for seo.

I'm pretty sure if anyones knowlegable about how the Google search engine works it's Vbulletin.  Many of the highest rank forums on google results use VB.  What a smart idea to have a Vbulletin SEO tool, I keep hearing great things about it.

According to their testimonials page it seems to have worked wonders for loads of big forums. however it's pretty darn expensive so not sure if it's even worth it for a new site. I guess any forum with loads of content i.e. 500,000+ posts would really benefit from it's ability to use SEO urls and what not.

What I like about vBSEO is it's organic SEO methods.  There are so many spam SEO methods and the best content gets the best web rankings.
