does google can access pages with password?
i'm guessing no, think about it , what would be the use to index a protected page ? When entrance would be denied right off the bat ?
Altough i think it is possible to create some special crawler accounts for them to get indexed (on some forums at least)
Google can't access pages which are password protected. Anybody, does not matter who, needs to know the password to access such a page
are you sure?what about the forums?i always use google for accesing password protected threads...
There is something like Google Bot its like account but its bot, maybe someone with more details could say something about that.
What those forums do is cloaking, they allow known
google ip (like 18.104.22.168) to craw its pages while
blocking unknown ip (users). That's why you can
have access to cache version of the page but not
the real page unless you authenticate.
These forums allow google to index their protected
pages hoping that users might find their pages on
I think,Google can not access the pages with password.Thanks!
Google can´t access password protected sites if you don´t let them, there is a reason why sites have passwords, not everyone should be able to access whats there.
I think it cant.... It access the forums, because you can read those forums without logging in... To access the password protected pages, the session has to enabled.
BTW you can use robot.txt to tell not to crawl the some pages of your website...
On forums and such, yes. I'm not sure about sites where you need a password and username just to begin downloading the site. Probably not.
Man.. Where are you getting avatars like this...??? LMAO
