    Can GoogleBot index these profile links that must be logged in to view them?

    No, profile page should be viewed without logging in for indexing.

    if the webmaster use google webmaster tools, he have an option for give acces to forum to googlebot.
    If the forum is good ranked we can think webmaster did it, so it can be ok.

    So XRumer blasts aren't as effective?

    Most of the links in recent blasts I ordered had profile links that needs to be logged in to view.

    Google bot and other bots often register into forums. so forum profile links should work pretty nice

    Ants is right. For example, check out Shawn Hogan's DP Profile without logging in and you will be asked to Login. URL is: http://forums.digitalpoint.com/member.php?u=1
    But, when you enter the URL of the Profile in Google and click on "Cached", you can view his Profile :D. It means that, Google ando ther Search Engines have access to anything on the internet unless they put a Robots.Txt file :)

    Wow, didn't know that google bot can also crawl profile pages that require login. Very useful info because we usually just skipped those that require login to view profile.

    I think if the directories or files are not protected with some kind of .htaccess rule google can find them, or how would you explain the "cb recipt" hacking? none of those webmatsters want that link indexed but nevertheless google found them and indexed them. But those links will be harder to get indexed more than the regular profiles that can been seen without login.

    I do the same thing and now I'm going to check this out myself to be sure. I'm kinda hoping google bot can't as I've discards hundreds of these links. D:
