But I'm starting to become ready to prepare the move to XF now.
The first thing I'm looking at is how to handle the vbseo URLs, I've got two options that I could find after reading some threads here
1) uninstall vbseo first, and look for the redirections to the old vb URLs so Google can start changing the indexed URLs from vbseo -> vb
Then go from there and use Mike's redirection script to redirect the old vb URLs to XF URLs (my question then is: does it also redirect all the internally posted vbseo URLs ?)
2) keep vBSEO installed and try to find a way to redirect those URLs to XF URLs.
Basically I'm looking for the method best for SEO so that traffic isn't harmed for too long.I also prefer to work in smaller steps so members aren't shocked with changes. Currently I'm inclined to go with option 1) since it's a smaller step and seems easier to handle.
What's the recommendation here and is there any tutorial to follow the right steps to achieve this as smooth as possible?
