By default, only the forum name / title is displayed in the <title></title> tag of the homepage of your vBulletin forum, which is far from ideal in terms of SEO. One should give a much more descriptive title to the home page of the forum other than the mere name of it.
To do this:
- Log in to the /admincp of your vBulletin forum
- From the left administrative menu, Styles & Templates –> Style Manager –> Select Edit Templates in the right drop down of the current style set.
- In the left selection of templates, double click Forum Home Templates –> double click FORUMHOME.
- Now opens the homepage template of your forum, search for ‘<title>’ and you would find the HTML tag to edit.
- Add something descriptive and keywords-rich in the <title></title> tag and click Save.
vBulletin is such a sophisticated application with a very large user base. Took me some time to find this solution. Hope it helps! Check out how I changed the homepage title of the forum for Go.
