I registered my site and verifyied it on google. But everytime I go to who is online in the forum admin I just see members and google advertising targeting.  How do I get a bot to come just so I know they are vistiting.
myff admin

You can't order google around!

If you promote your forum in the ways suggested it will get indexed. Trying to see that happening just wastes time.

ok thanks a lot, I wasnt sure if you could request a bot to be sent.

You can get Google to view your website.  Just go here and enter the domain/webpage and then wait.  It can take a while but will help Google get to it.

Google spiders the web so simply posting a link here gets you on google, probably almost as fast as manually telling google about your site. Neither will ensure that you get indexed on anything other than googles own schedule though.

You are better off, sorting your site content out and getting backlinks to your site than worrying about what is indexing it and when.

I'm trying to get my forum recognised by search engines.i'm very new to this...sorry.
myff admin

You have already said "submitting your site to google" but for all we know you are writing the site name on a paper airplane and throwing it out the window....
motmac

I don't understand what you mean?

Is it not clear what i want to happen? i want to make my site discoverable via search engines and i dont know how to do it.thats why i have posted on here for some help.
myff admin

Well the basic fact is that you don't need to submit sites to search engines at all anyway.

You just need to get links posted to your forum from other sites.

Well i submitted my website to google and now i can type  the name in google and it comes up with it.it wont let me do this with the forum tho.there is a link to my forum on the website and links have been posted on countless other forums and google never seems to pick up on any of it.
Am i missing something? i have 43 registered members and around 5000 posts but never once does any related search point to the forum.
myff admin

There are millions of web sites, your forum at a glance is not keyword rich about anything in particular, so (unless by virtue of some quality post on the forum that does scrape into peoples consciousness and gets links that then increase your google ranking) you can't expect to compete with sites that concentrate on keywords and have links to them.
