I expect there are many better sources of information for SEO than WEB400. For example: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Q_27710952.html
Just putting "search engine optimisation forum" into google gets plenty of hits - e.g http://forums.seochat.com/

I know that this was not an i related question originally, but how else would I get this kind of response?

huh? I am not sure what you are saying here? What am I missing?

I have an idea you are probably absolutely correct; I do tend to be a late adopter. So, in my own defense, I better be paying attention.

You are probably saying something I should hear.

Which raises a question for which I've never known an answer.

My web site counter registers a couple of hundred hits a week. How
many of those are likely to be web crawlers and other non-human hits?

I've heard people way smarter than me give wildly varying answers.

Since you want to be found by google, perhaps google is the best
source of info. They have (free) info in their webmaster area.
Many questions answered, but this one below lets you submit your
site to be crawled.
btw - depending on your web code - their crawler can have issues
if you web pages dynamically created, and you don't take steps to
give the crawler info (how should a crawler categorize you if no
real info activated by the crawler...)

How Google works is a specialty area and is not an exact science.
It's more of an art. Aka who knows.
