    Are you asking how to optimize a page when you have limited or no control over the content, ie. with a forum or something like Experts-Exchange where the contents of an individual page are primarily provided by the user?

    Well, you're certainly limited in your ability to include or even select the keywords for a page like that.  That will largely be determined by the content, which you have little or no control over.  At the same time, you do have a couple of potential advantages in that your website will have lots of fresh content & pages, will be updated frequently, and will probably be a large site, all of which search engines like.

    There are also still ranking factors where you can have influence.  For example, you will probably have a home page that you can optimize using suitable keywords that represent the overall theme of your site.  If your home page has good PR, it will be passed to the pages it links to.  This requires you to have a clear and efficient internal link structure - you should be able to reach all pages within four clicks at the most, although two or three is better.  This is also essential just to help the spiders get around your site.  Getting the pages indexed is more important than being able to select their keywords.

    Other factors:
    - Keep your design efficient - smaller file sizes are better, limit the graphics, flash, javascript, etc.
    - Keep your URLs short and SE friendly.
