    Yeah I agree. When your linked to a thread on msn or a chat you have no choice but to click to see what its about. If the thread title was in the url you can tell what its about before you even click it.

    Btw if you edit a thread title, does the url change too? Same with forums and users?

    SEO... Simply put it is not an exact science. If it was everyone would be able to achieve top ranks. What we do know is some sites garner top ranks while they do absolutly nothing and flounder. Some will swear on the available SEO enhancements others balk at them.

    Best bet is to read sites like vBSEO, vBulletin-FAQ and gain as much understanding about SEO as you can absorbe and make an educated decision on how you want to proceed with your site.

    I too think a lot of SEO tactics are over rated. Some of the most indexed sites I know use regular vBulletin urls. Content is key. If people stumble upon your site from a search engine, but don't get the results they were looking for, SEO has accomplished nothing.

    My forum has never been SEO'ed, and it's still rank extremely high within its respective category. I guess most people want human friendly URL because it's assumed that search engines give priority to URLs that have keywords in them.
    agreed, my sites up in the middle of a heap of forums on the first page that all have seo and i dont sometimes i think its over rated vbseo.

    If all of these features are indeed added, you lose the edge over others in your category also using vBulletin but not making specific work of extra SEO work done on your domain.

    You got a lot of learning to do bud if you want to get a head start in this game of SEO.

    because it's not as page heavy, google ranks pages that are extremely light in file size better than those that are heavy.

    Plus, there is a lot of junk taken out of the archives which pushes up the prominence of the keyword relevancy factors

    Well rename it if you must. But the way that it is setup in vBulletin is not the way it should be used imo. It is not as efficent.

    IMO that is what the archive is suppose to be used for. More of a sitemap.
