    One of my clients have a large business forum (large means, lot's of high quality content there) they use it to promote their money site, 15k threads are indexed but not many are ranking very high for the low competition keywds. do you have any idea how to get this beast to rank properly?

    Where do the high quality links need to point to, to the main url or to some keywd. threads or?

    Seems a forum is a lot more complicated than a BLOG or regular website.

    Google has "semantic smarts". Cuz I have no idea what the actual technical term is called.

    That is, if your search query sounds like a question, then stackexchange and forums get boosted for your results. If your question sounds like a commercial query, then stores will get a boost.

    And for all the rest, there's Wikipedia, Amazon.com and Trip Advisor I guess.

    EDIT PS. So to answer your question : ranking a forum requires you to target questions and get links from question/answer type sites, or participate in those sites bringing people into your site.
