    Hello!

    I know what's the meaning of "indexed" for a site (or I think I know ...), but I don't see the difference between "listed" and "indexed".

    Does it mean the same thing ?

    And, if a page is listed, but not indexed, whatd does it mean (if it's possible) ?

    Thanks.

    Where you have seen the term "Listed"? Can you please give some reference?

    So ...

    I tried to find page non-indexed by G with Scrapebox. I found. And then, I searched their content on G and it appeared each time.

    So I searched with G and I found that some made a difference between "listed" and "indexed". But they didn't explain the difference.

    I think the word LISTED is very much used in share market not in internet world. Here, you can consider the word INDEXED.
