I just came across this:

http://www.medical-education.us/forum-software-seo-bbpress-smf-xoops-t498.html [nofollow]

I realize it's from a couple of years back.  I'd appreciate anything you might be able to share with regards to this important topic.

In looking at posts on this very list I see a lot of "index.php?topic=" which isn't the best for SEO.  Any tools (mods?) to improve upon this?

That's old school

The URLs don't have anything to do with SEO actually. Google indexes forums just fine with them. However, there are a couple of mods to get fancier URLs, the most popular one being Pretty URLs. I would also highly recommend the Optimus Brave mod, which gives your pages more distinct titles and meta descriptions.

Also take a look at  http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=427913.0.

Not sure what you mean. 

Do you mean to say that I am wrong?  That'd be OK as I am nowhere near an SEO expert.  Can you explain?

I thought that content-relevant URL's (http://www.vbseo.com [nofollow]) where best for SEO.  No?
