If you are migrating to a new forum and have to use a new URL, you can avoid losing SEO rank by setting up a 301 redirect. This will tell the search engines (and visitors) that your old URL has moved permanently and the search engine will be redirected to the new URL.

A 301 means that the web page doesn’t lose any of its authority as it allows for the link juice (SEO value) from the original URL to be passed along to the new URL.
