I'm not sure if anyone else is even the least bit interested, but I thought I would post this anyway. I have been working on improving the website ranking in search different search engines. Here are some not all inclusive but interesting results. If you search for any of these words, this is where they will come up in the listing. All of these are from Google. Keep in mind that these are averages since the results are dynamic.

geocaching - 13
wisconsin geocaching - 1
geocaching forums - 3
geocaching wisconsin - 1
lonely cache game - 1
cache of the month - 1
cache rescue - 1
geocaching event - 21
wisconsin geocaching event - 1
adopt a highway wisconsin - 6

Some of the really strange ones...
hddd.ddddd - 6
recriprocate - 5
bergstrom mini - 14
swiss cargo kayak - 9

Unfortunatly, the acronym "WGA" is pretty popular, so the ranking is only 24th. Still, that's a big increase from what it was.

Shouldn't this be in the "real" forums? It's not off-topic, and everyone might be interested in the WGA presence on the web. Great job getting us noticed!

If you come across a sitemap generator for the CMS, and the forums you use, you could head over to verify you are the webmaster, and submit the sitemap to be directly and indirectly (crawled) by the Google index bot. You will have full control of the indexed pages for this site in the control panel where you can remove directories, URL's, and change the speed of Google's crawl rate in addition to some analytical information like searched keywords. It gets you indexed very fast, good stuff!
