Actually the optimising part is important. I have doubled, at least, my income from the board by SEO'ing it as hard as I could.
Now I rank high and quickly in google for posts and google pumps in maybe a 1/3 of my visitors sometimes.
I use xmb board, but am amazed that SEO is the LAST thing forums board designers seem to think about. Standard code and structure is totally wrong, with things like BB code script at the top of the page etc.
