How to get a message board crawl?
How do you get Google to crawl a message board?

I have read a few threads on .cgi crawls.

After about 6 months I am still having a tough time getting Google to crawl a .cgi

I have a message board that has 2 main directories. One is the cgi-bin and the other is where the data resides.

Both have read / write access.

Am I missing anything?

Cut down on the number of parameters and the length of the cgi string. It would probably be good to get it out of cgi-bin too. Google isn't fond of grabbing stuff in there and it never seems to rank well. I think for it to get a page out of cgi-bin, it has to have some decent external inbound links.
