    Hi guys ,,
    I'm new in the forums and i don't know what is the better forum to make,
    So what's the most successful version in those three options ?
    - What option did digital point use in this forum ?
    - The best forum for Adsense ?
    Thanks all. :)

    I suggest you go with vbulletin because it was seo friendly.
    And take note, it doesnt matter what forum platforum you use if your forum was built mainly for adsense then the key here is to focus on whitehat traffic.

    We use XenForo here... It's the best option in my opinion (obviously, or else we wouldn't be using it). :)

    For us it's the best... But it depends on what you need software to do exactly. I'd make a list of the stuff that's important to you, and then figure out what does that stuff best.

    Lol... if you don't even know what type of forum you want to start, probably best to not even bother. Making a forum about something you don't care about is destined to fail.

    I agree with Shawn. I'm currently using XenForo on a forum of mine and the community loves all the great features and ease of use. Definitely the best out there at the moment. It appears they'll be releasing some new feature soon too! http://xenforo.com/community/threads/lawsuits-over-next.45107/

    I have many ideas but i was just asking about a new content, because you guys have Experience more than me. :)

    Maybe i can make a forum with any free version because XF and vB is a paid ver, and if the forum success i can change it to XF or vB ver, so you know a free version to make a forum like XF and vB ?

    :) :) :)

    SMF and MyBB are both decent (and free).

    Definitely a good deal. Especially since they'll be way more active than in the last year regarding future developments of the product. 1.2 should be pretty neat!

    At $110, I'd recommend XF all the way.
