Google ignores meta tags. They are a waste of time. But you can put them in templates/your_template/overall_header.tpl if it makes you feel better.

Google will search all your board, all the time. Just be patient. I bet this topic is already on Google and this site does nothing for that to happen.

It is, I checked a few minutes ago :)

The best way to get Google to scan your board, is to have links to your board from other websites.
Now you are not allowed to just post links to your website in your messages here, but you ARE allowed to have a link to it in your signature, and in the "website" link in your profile. phpbb.com is a very busy site, so Google will notice the links very quickly.

Actually, I discovered another guaranteed way to get Google to scan your site... Get yourself an Adsense account, and put some ads on the board. On one board, we put some at the bottom (where members rarely look anyway), and it went to 12th on search rankings for the relevant search words, because Google "suddenly" had many more pages indexed. No other changes to content, meta keywords, or links from other sites.

No significant revenue, but that wasn't why we did it...
The abuse will continue until morale improves!
