Front Page for a Forums

I think this one has been way understated and definately bears repeating a few times for some folks. Even if its just a portal for phpbb, this serves many purposes, first it gives you a place to get your primary keywords seen and hit on immediately, it also provides a point of navigation for both people browsing and using the forum and of course here is the prime place to put links to other pages or whole subsites in your domain, now they will be seen and hopefully spidered. No more crawling through dozens of pages where a link can be buried forever, instead bots looking for fresh content find it one step from the opening page and you’ll actually give the pages some PR.
