    There is no legal way unless someone gives you their license.

    I would stay away from Vbulletin. I have all my 3 sites being slapped by panda and penguin due to vbulletin. You have to pay $285 every few years(version change) just for the lousy cms. If you want the vbseo, which needs expert skills to configure and you have to fork out hundreds of dollars and $100 per year to maintain and that doesnt guarantee your site to be seo friendly.

    That is interesting. I read somewhere that vBulletin has 100k+ customers, how come that I've never heard about this before? :confused:

    You don't need vBSEO for seo. We've never used it here.

    VB Forum or Suit is Paid community script,
    user friendly
    easy to use, and easy to handle all the options
    you just need to purchase a license for you.

    Even i need a forum software as i am soon going to make a forum on my Tech blog. I love vBulletin.
    Any other alternative like vB other than myBB and phpBB? they are difficult to configure.

    If you can't configure them, you can't configure any forum. There are a few forums that are difficult to configure, but MyBB and phpBB aren't among the difficult ones.

    I am planning to create a forum on my Tech blog. I would be glad if someone helped me in making it.
    In depth video tutorial from youtube would be best where they show each and every option in the free forum software so i can configure it properly for my readers, and also on SEO basis

    What rubbish.

    1. If you have been slapped by Google on 3 forums, YOU (emphasis on you) are doing something wrong.

    2. You do not have to pay $285 every few years.

    3. You do not need expert SEO skills nor do you need to payout money to anyone.

    I will now await a "xenforo is better" comment from someone :)

    If you lost rankings you already had with vBulletin, it's not vBulletin... it's Google's algorithm understanding content better, and they simply don't like your content.

    Same here. Currently using SMF. You can check it at forum.ugeeky.com. Reading this stops me from switching to vBulletin.

    This is wrong, I suggest you do a bit more research, this wouldn't have been from "vbulletin" but rather from something you did with vBulletin.
