    Hi,

    I need help in knowing how to ensure the indexing of content of message board by search engines.

    Some searh results at google and altavista show results when the keyword is there in some one's message on a discussion board and that too added same day also.

    I checked up my site and all the pages indexed by them were before i upgraded my site one month back.

    How does it happen, do they use some special technique in submitting or in meta tags ?

    Same thing I have noticed with Newspaper sites also where sometimes content of a daily story comes up if it had keyword in body tag.

    Please advice if someone knows the answer.

    I added a message board to my site with services from everyone.net.

    Deepak

    i think that depends on your metatags...
    you should add the following line and search engines will check all your pages whenever they come back (and they do regular) and update the information:

    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow">
