    I was testing how both Xenforo and Vbulletin appears on Google and this is why Xenforo wins in term of SEO so far. Score 89 vs 66. Although Vb5 appears to be catching up.

    Tested also the fetch page and Google was able to grab data much better from Xenforo then Vbulletin.

    Page test:
    https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights

    Insert a random thread from Xenforo:
    http://xenforo.com/community/thread...it-with-more-than-the-usual-spam-today.40965/

    Got an overall PageSpeed Score of 89 (out of 100) See attachment.

    Insert a random thread from Vbulletin 4.x version:
    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php/410737-Speed-Still-An-Issue-What-Is-VB-s-View

    Got an overall PageSpeed Score of 66 (out of 100) see Attachment.

    Edit: However, vb5 is catching up:
    Insert a random thread from Vbulletin 5.x version:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/vb5demo/forum/demo-question-answer/299-what-would-you-like-to-see

    Got an overall PageSpeed Score of 87 (out of 100) see Attachment.

    XenForo also does a lot better over IPB (IP Board). ;)

    The page XenForo Community got an overall PageSpeed Score of 90 (out of 100).
    xenforo.com/community

    The page Invision Power Services got an overall PageSpeed Score of 73 (out of 100).
    community.invisionpower.com

    IPB scores less than XenForo and vBulletin 5 :ROFLMAO:

    Not surprised to see VB5 edging up, but is it any surprise? the forum layout is so bland/blank of anything
