    When the bots find your forum they will index it automatically. If you haven't already submitted your forum to the search engines then it'd be wise to do so.

    You can also use Google Webmaster tools to tell it to specifically ignore certain GET variables like PHPSESSID, which can help with both indexing and seeing the PR of your pages.

    Pray to the Google gods.

    As long as you have your forum out there and have linked to it on a few sites that are already indexed, Google will find and crawl your site regardless of what you do. In my experience, directly submitting it to them never made a difference.
