So I have looked through quite a few threads and it looks like the best I can do with xenforo is 301 redirect from old indexed vb links to the new xenforo ones. I have been using vbseo for a few years. The problem with this is that we rebranded and changed our domain name a few months ago, so there is already a pretty hefty amount of 301 redirects coming through. I feel like google would penalize another redirect on top of the current one. my current vbulletin structure is like this: Threads: [forum_title]/[thread_id]-[thread_title]/ http://site.com/general-topic/270779-thread-title/ page 2, etc. http://site.com/general-topic/270779-thread-title-2.html What's the closest I can get to my current vbulletin / vbseo link structure? I would really rather not have another redirect. e But maybe its necessary and something I should get over with sooner than later. edit: also, I really don't mind the xenforo link structure and would be willing to use it, but I don't like the extra /forums/ /threads/ in there. I know they can be reworded / rerouted, but I'd rather have them stripped from the url to keep it even closer to my vbulletin structure.
