Launched a brand new sports forum at GoTeamsGo.com less than a week ago. vb & vbseo from the start on a domain that has been registered since 2003 but completely empty/unused until this year. Here's some details of what's happened.

Imported 383 threads, 1032 posts from my old forums: 2/11/06

So kudo's to MSN. Despite earlier Googlebot activity and the Google Sitemaps submission, MSN has found the site and indexed some pages while Google has shown nothing.
