XF comes with 20 as a default but I'm seeing many sites using more. We have always used 20. 40 posts per thread page looks common among other sites. Is there some thought that SEO is improved by having more content per page? What do you think is best?

Could it negatively impact search indexing to change the number of posts per page on an established site?

It could create broken links if you only have 2 pages now when you had 4 pages previously. It really depends on how your established forum changes.

That would be old threads. New threads wouldn't be affected by that.

It could be positive for SEO, as it adds more keywords to each page.
