    Question SEO software craze?

    Do they really make that much of a difference? I mean I always hear about vB SEO and how it basically optimizes your forums and you basically could earn it back (which IMO is BS), so does it really help your forums or is it just a bunch of stuff to just load your forums down?

    If you do use some sot of SEO software, what do you think of it and has it helped your forums grow at all?

    I am a huge fan of vBSEO. It really helps indexing speed and search engine ranking, but I also find the English URL's a lot nicer to work with than vBulletin's default database URLs.

    That being said, I believe there are some free and open source alternatives to vBSEO which provide a significant portion of vBSEO's functionality -- at no cost.

    I only like the cool SEF URLs. Other than that, it's not really necessary. For most forum softwares, you can easily enable no-follow with a small template/file edit.

    And people are crazy about their forum Sitemaps. Honestly, forums ARE sitemaps. Forums are a page with different category links, which in turn link to different threads. If that doesn't sound like a Sitemap to you, I don't know what a sitemap is.
