    Xenforo is pretty cool. But one thing I'm worried about before switching to xenforo from vbulletin is..

    how well is xenforo suited around SEO? I have a lot of links indexed in search engines. I'm scared to switch because I'm afraid I"ll lose those ranks within search engines.

    How does xenforo SEO work? what are the options etc.. please tell me more.

    XF meets all the demands for on-page SEO with a very clean (content to code ratio) and well written code (semantic HTML).

    Regarding the indexed pages/URLs: XenForo uses its own specific (search engine friendly) URLs and for now these can't be customized. However, after the database is imported, you have the option to redirect the old URLs to the new ones with a search engine friendly 301 redirect. This means you will not lose your indexed pages/URLs and rankings in SEs.

    A bit more about the SEO part can be found in this interview with one of the developers: http://www.theadminzone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=78018
