Not necessarily. I remember spending hundreds on brand free vbSEO and hundreds more on WordPress plugins to do the same. SEO is up to the site and if both vb and WordPress even made it core, it'd be cookie cutter simple stuff that'd ultimately need updated every Google change or extended (in the case of XF) to produce new options before the core catches up.It is a nonsense that these functions are not in the core.
You need to do the xenforo license verification on there again. Had the same issue.
