    New to the forum and to SEO in general. I won't start asking questions about making money online until I have read posts and I have a lot to read.

    I want to ask a question about AWS. I am mindful of the rules so before anyone rewards my curiosity with a slap, can I point out that I am NOT asking for hacking advice - knowing virtually nothing about it - nor will I subsequently request information on the subject.

    This is the second forum I read. Sometimes, I come across a product to download with links that go directly to an S3 bucket. To be honest, I haven't come across a WSO or such like that I have wanted to download after reading comments. But I am curious about one thing: when an AWS link is given, is that the result, somehow, of searching AWS buckets or someone on the inside (indeed, sometimes, a developer sharing with the community) just posting a link known to him? I thought once a bucket was made private, it didn't display anything at "directory level". Am I just being naive?

    Again, I am curious but I will not asking for specific info. So please indulge my newbiness, within whatever rules prevail in this strange world I am just discovering.

    Thank you if you take the time to open my eyes some.
