I don't know about whether your page will be found, but you can ask the search robots NOT to find a page with the meta tag: <META NAME="robots" CONTENT="noINDEX, nofollow, noARCHIVE"> Maybe you aleady know this. I am looking forward to finding out the answer to your question though. Nan -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Fred Jones Sent: Sunday, July 13, 2008 9:52 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Can the Search Engines find an unlinked page? I made a demo site called somesite.com/fred/ There no link anywhere in the world to that page--in fact that only people who ever saw it are me and my client. But he wants me now to remove it because he says the search engines will find it and list it. I am not opposed to removing it, but I think he's wrong. I see no way for any search engine ever to find it. Am I wrong? Perhaps since he and I use gmail, Google is reading our email and thereby finds it? Thanks. -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
