Bloggers somewhat have the advantage of an RSS feed, which makes indexing a lot easier, and they can also sign up for those auto-PING sites. Forums, though, are a lot tougher to get indexed in my experience, although perhaps I just haven't used the right tools? I know that google gets to forums eventually, and I know about sites like big boards et al, but are there any other ways to get your forum "optimized" as it were?

You should use a robots.txt file on your index pages. It's a txt file that allows search engines to spider your site. You can use commands like: <meta name=”robots” content = “index, follow”> which will crawl your entire site, so id get familiar with the disallow command too.
