    i have tried using both smf and phpbb forums and my conclusions about that are:

    -smf seo better than phbb seo since smf seo provides simple auto install seo plugins but phbb provides phppseo plugin , not easy to setup , needs many modifications , and good chance to be malfunction plugin and not working.

    -smf easy template system , but phbb provide more complicated template sytsem.

    - most of the phpbb modifications are done manully by editing files , smf mods are done automatically

    using the installer , no need to manual editing of the files.

    - phpbb uses default themes prosilver and subsilver for most mods , but smf give the freedom of

    using any template with the same mods applied to it.

    -phpbb donot allow html , but smf allow it.

    -smf mods related to languages , but phpbb modes are not.

    -posting and editing scheme in smf more felixible than that of phpbb.

    -bothe are gpl and os software.
    SEMrush
    -smf looks to be more nice than phpbb .

    finally , i need your feed back to correct if any thing written is wrong

    Let's see..

    The SMF SEO mod isn't really better then the phpBB one, nor is the phpBB one better then the SMF one. The phpBB one does take some time to set up but if you do it right, it will work.

    How so? I find the phpBB template system to be one of the most easiest ones to learn.

    There's automod for that. Also if you don't have the time to install a mod for your forum, then you shouldn't be running one.

    Each style is based on prosilver or subsilver, so mods work with 99% of phpBB styles.

    I don't even know why you made that assumption.

    It depends on the mod authors, some include different languages, but not everyone knows all different languages, and considering English is the most commonly used language throughout the word most of the world knows it.

    Not true at all, I find the posting system in phpBB to be a lot better then SMF, apart from SMF looking like half finished software, phpBB has endless possibilities.

    SMF looks half finished and the half decent styles you need to pay for, at least with phpBB there's a lot of free based ones.

    Just my opinion.

    You forgot to mention how insecure and disorganised phpBB is.
