Is it on my end only, or I can't understand what this thread is about?
When I type "minibb" in Google, minibb.com comes first.
When I type "forum software", miniBB comes on the second page, so it in top 20, which is not even that bad - people nowadays are often used to ignore "Google substituted" results on the first page and look out or the miracle on few next browsing.
The same about "free forum software".
"Free forum program" gives me the first results page for miniBB.
Good luck guys... don't fight against the system, else you will promote it even more
