Bots are web scavengers, they come and go as they please, gathering information for web searches made on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Msn etc.,

If you want to encourage them then use these search engines to search for your site Smile

Bots can't be forced to come into your forum even if you put your forum link on some search engines, they will come to your forum if they want to, you can read more info here:
