there are mods available for SEO, im not sure about vB though - you might want to convert one (they are 'extremely' simple mods). heres a few tips:
1) edit .htaccess so that instead of going here: http://webhostingchat.com/forum/show...7411#post17411, go here: http://webhostingchat.com/p-17411.html -- you only have to do this for guests; SEs dont have member privs for some forums.
(easier for search engines to navigate)
2) find/create a theme that is text based (no images) and link to it on your regular themes footer.
3) ive never tried this, but ive noticed that there are no <H1> tags on pages; why dont you convert the bold text above the text into customized <H1> tags?
i dont know of any SEO articles aimed specifically at forums; but the general articles apply to forums too.
IMO the most powerful change in most scripts is point #1. we have used that method in our own forum and the SEs indexed the pages very quickly.
