Well, I spent some time today coming up with a "business card" of sorts for this place. Gopher mentioned it one day, and I remember the original SA had them. Feel free to download and save...
I will be printing some out for the DSO show I am headed to at the end of the month.

u should buy lostsailorspub.com from godaddy and forward it here... so its easy to remember. Plus the fact that these free forum hosts tend to fold easily. if you have a domain name people can regroup if something happens. $7 a year if you google for a coupon.

Would that make the site more easily googled?
As it is, google doesn't really turn up much...

Yes, you would probably be found easier, especially if you put some sort of intro page(ie: small description and a click here to enter). BUT forumup.it probably puts nofollow tags in their forums to keep google spiders from sucking up their bandwidth...so if someone is googling, say, the subject of one of your forum threads, the thread will not come up in google.

Best way to get around that is host your own forum, but this one seems already established and I'm not sure if forumup.it supports transfers to another host. They may or may not. blah blah blah blah blah

scratch that, google has been spidering the threads here. A domain name forwarded here would probably help with google, but you need to get some backlinks to it. Ranking high in google on a free forum is tough, though.

Google page rank for this forum is N/A, which is worse than 0 because google won't even asign one. Intro page with meta tags and targeted keywords would be your best bet if you want to climb in the google ranks. A link from my page may help on the next PR update(probably a couple months till then), since mine is listed on dmoz.org in a similar category.

Ummm.... me not understand... can you break that intro page part down to a layman's level?
Today I signed us up for dmoz...
We have something like 689 links in, but as you say, a N/A google ranking...

What is PageRank?

PageRank is a numeric value that represents how important a page is on the web. Google figures that when one page links to another page, it is effectively casting a vote for the other page. The more votes that are cast for a page, the more important the page must be. Also, the importance of the page that is casting the vote determines how important the vote itself is. Google calculates a page's importance from the votes cast for it. How important each vote is is taken into account when a page's PageRank is calculated.
PageRank is Google's way of deciding a page's importance. It matters because it is one of the factors that determines a page's ranking in the search results. It isn't the only factor that Google uses to rank pages, but it is an important one.

From here on in, we'll occasionally refer to PageRank as "PR".

Notes:
Not all links are counted by Google. For instance, they filter out links from known link farms. Some links can cause a site to be penalized by Google. They rightly figure that webmasters cannot control which sites link to their sites, but they can control which sites they link out to. For this reason, links into a site cannot harm the site, but links from a site can be harmful if they link to penalized sites. So be careful which sites you link to. If a site has PR0, it is usually a penalty, and it would be unwise to link to it.

How is PageRank calculated?

To calculate the PageRank for a page, all of its inbound links are taken into account. These are links from within the site and links from outside the site.

dmoz is very picky with their sites, and tend to reject sites that have ads on them. If they do get approved, they usually take months. Doesn't hurt to try though.

I can whip one up if need be. gotta get the domain name first though. have the domain name go to an intro page, and put a description of the site, etc on it. The you have a "click here to enter" link that leads here.

Question: What are Meta Tags?

Answer: Meta tags are HTML codes that are inserted into the header on a web page, after the title tag. In the context of search engine optimization, when people refer to meta tags, they are usually referring to the meta description tag and the meta keywords tag.

The meta description tag and the meta keywords tag are not seen by users. Instead, these tags main purpose is providing meta document data to user agents, such as search engines. In addition to the well-known meta description and meta keywords tags, there are other useful meta tags, including the meta http-equiv tag, meta refresh tag, the meta robots tag, the meta copyright tag, and the meta author tag, etc. These tags are used to give web browsers and search engine spiders directions or data on various information.

Something that gets more people here is good, and it is beyond my experience level.
