XF 1.5 Crawl errors after moving from vBulletin to XenForo

    I moved from vBulletin 3.8x to XenForo 1.5x and use your vBseo redirects. Most of the redirects are working, but around 2.000 not. No idea why. Google sent me an email with the following content ==>

    Question: Is this a normal effect when moving from one forum to another? Or do I have a sitemap with 2.000 defekt links. And when this is the case, how can I remove the links forever. Otherwise Google might suggest, that my server has problems.

    Kind regards,

    Take a look at the urls that arn't found, are they redirected threads, stuff thats been deleted etc?

    Not found seems to be a lot of things, perhaps deleted things, for example old vB-Tags "/tags/test.html", but also not existing html-pages.
    But there are also server errors where the files exist. But I don't thing my server has not enough power.

    And I have a lot of "access denied", because directly after the converting from vB the acess to XenForo user profiles was possible for unregistered, but I changed the rights soon after. But not quick enough for google as it seems. Do I have to do something in this case too?

    If the 404 not found are correct and you don't want those urls indexed, Google will eventually drop them without action on your part. We experienced similar after our migration.

    Did you find a solution for redirection of vbulletin tags? its very important for SEO. Like you we are getting a mass of crawl error warnings on site.com/forum/tags.php
