Professional vBSEO Installation Service
This service is designed for non-technical forum owners who want to take advantage of the search engine optimization benefits provided by vBSEO, but who may lack the technical skills to complete the installation, or simply require an expedited install.
To do so, you will need to provide us with access to your forum including (1) access to your Web Server via an FTP account and (2) access to your vBulletin Control Panel (admin account with product/plugin install privileges).
NOTE: The installation service is LIMITED TO a *single vBSEO installation* ONLY. Upon completion of the install, the vBSEO Total Support Team is NOT required to complete future upgrades, or changes to your vBSEO settings, forum or Web server set-up, or any other tasks requiring direct access to your forum. Further support will be provided as outlined here.

Time to Completion of Your Installation
A vBSEO Total Support Member will complete your installation as soon as your order is discovered. While we have support staff located in several different time zones, there may be periods when the support staff is not online.
While in many cases your install may be completed in less than an hour from submitting your order, you may need to wait up to 24 hours to have a vBSEO Total Support Team member begin your installation.
Note: If you have any restrictions on the date/time of installation, please let us know in a support ticket when you submit your password information. We will do our best to comply with your schedule. However, please be aware that we do NOT cover all timezones.
If you request a time period for installation during which staff is not available, we will advise you of the closest available time for installation. If you do not provide information on when to complete your installation, the vBSEO Total Support Team will attempt to complete your installation as soon as your order is discovered and staff is available to begin.
The cost of our installation service is a one time fee of $79.
Upon successful installation of vBSEO on your forum, this fee is non-refundable.
