    Forum getting indexed

    Ok guys. Last time I asked this question, I posted a url for some of the pages on one of my forums. I wanted to see if my forum was google friendly and the pages would get crawled eventually.

    I was told it was google friendly, as it had many "?" and other symbols that google tends to not follow...

    So... a friend of mine did a mod rewrite of my forum and here is how the urls look now:

    So they are apparently google friendly at this point.
    My question is, how long do you think I would have to wait to see some of the pages appear in google's index?

    Initial pages depending on backlinks and over all link popularity will determine this. IF you have quality backlinks a few of the main pages could come in the index within hours or a few days.

    Normally depending on board size it could take 30-60 days or alot longer to get you properly indexed on all the pages.

    Again, all depends on quality and amount of links and over all link popularity.
