Search Engine Ideas

I just read this on the Google Webmaster tools site
Quote:
Allow search bots to crawl your sites without session IDs or arguments that track their path through the site. These techniques are useful for tracking individual user behavior, but the access pattern of bots is entirely different. Using these techniques may result in incomplete indexing of your site, as bots may not be able to eliminate URLs that look different but actually point to the same page.

Should you eliminate the normal phpbb session IDs to the bots?

Number 2
Quote:
Don't create multiple copies of a page under different URLs. Many sites offer text-only or printer-friendly versions of pages that contain the same content as the corresponding graphic-rich pages. To ensure that your preferred page is included in our search results, you'll need to block duplicates from our spiders using a robots.txt file. For information about using a robots.txt file, please visit our information on blocking Googlebot.

Block the entire forum except the "Archive"?

Does it matter? if it helps forums get noticed better, then why not flag it so it's a higher priority?

Its all done anyway, the bots don't see session ids, and the archive is different enough in format not to look like duplicate content, just extra pages.
