Is there a niche for vBSEO to fit in?
Probably not since this product is pretty much seoed already.
never say never tho.....
You will have people who want a onestop mod that cuts whitespace, automatically converts posted links to use thread titles, incorporates analytics, tweetboard, etc etc... one is better than multiple.
Ha ha xenseo.com is already taken. Mert, that was pretty quick.
xenseo.com is a redirect to xenseo.net, owned by Craig Bailey, Microsoft SEO specialist.
I personally don't think that Xen is the most appropriate in the situation. When somone says Xen, I immediately think of the hypervisor.
vBSEO is out of luck then. Maybe xFSEO.com.
I think XF will become the prefix from reading things... XFSEO.
This is already taken, and it was registered in March.
i'm wondering about this, right now i'm owning a seo board, so when i wanna 'pass the river' to the xF the risk is loosing my ranks ... or maybe the importer brings the vbseo settings?
We can't currently comment anything about it. We are interested with XenForo and we will evaluate everything once we get our hands on the code source. But one thing i can clearly say is we are highly interested in XenForo as Crawlability Inc.
*KURTZ is following ... (hi Mert, nice to see you here)
good news for us Mert, really good news ...
Hopefully if an SEO plugin comes out it won't be nearly as resource intensive as the old vBSEO.
That plugin made every forum I visit noticeably slower. Unless its gotten better in the past year or so.
I visited thousands of forums that use vBSEO and never faced the issue you mention. Of course some sites face that issue but it is actually not vBSEO's fault. People always want to keep their sites on cheap hosting and they deny to move better servers when their site grows. This surely causes an issue as the server can't handle mod_rewrite .
But looking at some of the code that they have now, they're already doing SEO stuff out of the box like IPB 3.1 has been doing, so what's the need for an SEO plugin for XenForo?
IPB SEO plugins have been shutting down, I doubt there is a market for an SEO product for xF
My like it a lot, to each his choice how you call it.
I wish it were so ... another good reason to make a switch from vB to xF ...
What more features can this software introduce? I'm rampaging on suggesting these feature as part of the core product.
