    Speaking from experience, are there any "musts" to improve VB SEO right out of the box?

    Also, should I wait until the upgrade to 3.7.0 before getting too wild and crazy with SEO? Thanks!

    VB seo?

    The VBulletin seo software is that something that just runs by itself all the time? does it work well?

    Are you asking about vBulletin software? or one of the add-ons for additional SEO for vBulletin?

    I'm sure that vBulletin SEO must be the same as for thouthand other web sites.
    _meta tags
    - submitting to the directoires. You need atract visitors not only from SE. "Word of mouth " is the best option for social web sites

    The only one that matters for SEO is the title tag. The meta description tag is important because it's used as the "snippet" in SE listings. The rest are pretty much a waste of space.

    Be very selective about directories. They don't help as much as they used to and the majority requiring payment aren't worth it.

    If everyone believed that, there wouldn't be threads like these on pretty much every webmaster forum in existence. :)

    vBSEO is great. Have a look at it in action at http://fhq.forumer.com
    If you notice, thanks to vBSEO, the thread about funny images in the genral chat are, is a big hit, but then, it is also due to a high PR.

    How did vBSEO make that thread popular? How do you know it not popular for other reasons?

    because the image title is funny pics, start loling and the url is http://fhq.forumer.com/general-chat-area/74481-funny-pics-start-loling.html
    which makes it faster and easier for search engines to index it.
    And funny pictures/images.photos is a very common search if you realise.
    Thus it is very popular.

    How do you know that? How do you know that the thread would not have ranked just as well withot vBSEO? Having the keyword in the URL carries either no weight or a miniscule weight in the rankings. It used to carry more in the past.

    1> The same thread in a non-vbseo forum, with a higher PR, did NOT yield much, and did not turn up in search engines for a long time.
    2> You are getting very aggressive towards me.

    BUT, that still does not mean it had anything to do with vBSEO. I can think of >100 different reasons for that to happen other than vBSEO, so I ask again, how do you know it was due to vBSEO?
    Nope. You made a claim that you have not substantiated.
