Friendly URLs setting for vbulletin - which of 4 is best?

 6:31 pm on Feb 9, 2013 (gmt 0)


Two weeks ago I upgraded my forum to vb4.there are 4 options for friendly URLs setting :

-standard URLs
-basic friendly URLs
-advanced friendly URLs
-mod rewrite friendly URLs

At now it is on basic friendly option.

Which one of the other options makes search engines to index better.

I would go with option #5 - develop backlinks from relevant external sites that point to your deep content.

before upgrading I had 1000k ip visitors per month . my traffic had been increasing 60% every year.

after upgrading my traffic dropped off to 50%. after the dropping my traffic is going to be normal as before gradually .

I want to know does URLs structure affects getting more traffic or not and if yes which one of them is best?

You might get a wider range of answers if you explained what the four categories mean. Otherwise only people who speak VB will understand exactly what you're asking.

I wouldn't say URL structure helps get more traffic but rather bad URL structure can prevent search traffic. Search engines greatly prefer clean, simple urls with no special characters. If you change the URL structure of a live website without redirects than you will likely lose all of the internal and external link popularity.
