    You think "viewtopic.php?f=2&t=55213" is more SE friendly than "thread-10245.html" (MyBB)? You've got a lot to learn.

    Care to source that? Even so, Google isn't the only search engine on the planet.
    Pretty much any other forum software will be more SE friendly than phpBB, so I'm recommending to the OP if SEO is a large target for him, phpBB isn't the right software for his project. MyBB is worth checking out. http://mybb.com

    If you must stick with phpBB, check out http://www.phpbb-seo.com/, but it's still hacky and won't fix other problems like overuse of tables.

    the best way how to get better SEO is content and backlinks

    the way is how to

    I agree with subdivision here. phpBB is not default seo friendly and those links look ugly
