hey guys, can google detect which wordpress plugins you are using?
If they want: YES.
Every Plugin is a directory on your websever and so they can check for PHP files, the Plugin is using. But i think they can't see, if it's activated.
They can (as everybody) if the plugin leaves a visibile footprint in the generated HTML. They cannot check the php files directly in most cases.

Yes, but you can also Disable WordPress Directory Listing In Web Browser.
as a few of the above said, yes, it's easy, even if you disable directory listing they still leave footprints, you will have to take care of those too, but...why are you interested in this, what bad ass plugin do you want to hide ?
Just rename the bad*arse plugin to something else. I have not tried it but it might work. Actually I also agree that if you disable browsing of that directory, g* will ask 'what u hiding?'.
thanks guys, i dont know, i've just noticed that this post-panda thing. well, a lot of my stuff took serp hits, but my sites that clickjack via wordpress plugins have been de-indexed. i suppose it could be other stuff as well, i'm not sure, but i'd feel better if my plugins were invisible. i suppose it could have been a manual review, i used to do them myself. but really, the g manual review guidelines are wayyy less than that. it could also be spammy content.
They can crawl and read java and ajax.
if your plugin leaving footprint they can detect
