Please do not post a link to your forum, per board guidelines.
First yes, you can submit it to search engines so they are "aware" they can crawl it.
What google (and other search engines) look the most for, is not only website content, but how many site you link to, and even more, how many sites link to yours. Start by getting people to reccomened (or just link to) your forums from their site. Once you start doing this, you'll be suprised how much you move up in the search engines. Remember, the more well known* the site is that has your link on it, the more your site will move up. *I'm trying to be less confusing by saying "well known." realisticly its how many sites link to the sites that are linking to the sites that are linking your site...haha..
