    I currently use vBseo. Have for years. As of late, I'm not all that impressed with it.

    Similar to IB, as they have grown, they've gotten arrogant. The overhead on the server caused by vBseo is something you have to consider. My host shut me down once for it.

    Xenforo has native seo functions built in. Sure, it wont do everything that vBseo does, but quite frankly, vBseo hasn't helped me all that much as of late. Last time I submitted a ticket to vBseo, they were less than helpful. I had to rely on a forum member for help.

    I'll be happy with the simple SEO features built into Xenforo. I wouldn't pay for an add-on SEO package again. I am looking forward to ditching vBseo.

    Not at all, I don't like changing URL structure back and fourth on forums, never did see the logic in it when Google ranks stock vB URL's fine all along.

    I see XF threads ranking high (this forum) along with threads of similar topic from my stock vB forum, so the URL's are not going to make or break you if you go with stock XF URL's.

    It all comes down to having good content :)

    I genuinely couldn't agree more. XF handles SEO superbly, straight out of the box.

    I used to have multiple vBSEO licenses (still have one I keep just in case for whatever reason) but have not run it for a few years now. At the time I was using it it was causing quite an overheard to my server's resources and I just couldn't justify it. Reading the 'success stories' about people using vBSEO, I think it is more of a situation where the admin is taking a leap of faith that it is vBSEO that is helping and not other factors. I am not interested in reusing it again for vB and would not be interested in an XF version.

    Now the vBSEO Sitemap Generator for vB 3.8.x on the other hand...... that I like. :)

    Great now we're going to have 5430 vbseo gurus here defending it.

    vbseo is good for human friendly urls, but it is useless for seo.

    I like the support I got from the vbseo members. They are very helpful in helping monetize my vbulletin forum.

    I like that vBSEO has pingbacks and such, but I never used vBSEO so I guess I'm not high up there on the importance scale :p

    Not important to me at all.
