    I decided to move xenforo from vb 4.2 but there is a question I want to ask.

    what will happen to google indexes? am I gonna lose all of them? I'm using vbseo. I know there is a url redirection scripts but it means all the threads going to reindex by google? am I right?

    In short, if you configure the redirection scripts correctly, you should see only a minimal impact in google, if anything at all. Many people have reported no noticable change.

    Maybe you can find something useful from this digitalpoint's forum thread describing the results of moving from vB to xF. :) Seems like other than improvements there's no any negative impact (except being nagged by some vB fans forum members :p)

    That's great but I don't have enough experience with configuration of redirect scripts.

    There are plenty of people who can help with that so don't let it put you off.
