    Listing @ Google

    Does Google list WebPages that have the following:
    1.Sites that require any kind of registration or password.
    2.Content that is in a database.
    3.Information that is generated by Java applets or in XML coding;
    4.Comments, that is, text between <! -- and --> symbols in the source code;
    5.Pages that time out before the crawler can index the entire page.

    1. Obviously a spider can't log in, so they will index the public pages of such a site

    2. If you put your database content on an page they'll read it, SP is database driven, nearly all my sites are database driven. It isn't an issue. Though you might want to read my article on search engine friendly URLs - its not an issue with Google but it is with other engines and using friendly URLs is better for humans too.

    3. Java no, XML yes, or they should. There might be some bugs with their ability to parse any XML but I'm sure they are working on them. xHTML is fine.

    4. They'll read them, but it isn't going to give you a benefit.

    5. Pages usually don't timeout half way through. If a page times out nothing is usually sent to the browser, once you start sending data you have a connection that usually stays open - the timeouts happen when trying to establish that connection. If Google finds a page is down they will probably revisit it in the near future and if it is still down they will likely remove it from their index, atleast until the next major crawl.

    But donít you think that it will be useful to add reference words or keywords for the spider to read !

    Read aspen's answer again

    With google, it won't give you a benefit. Any way you can think of exploiting the search engines, chances are somebody at google already knows of it. Stuffing keywords into hidden text or comment is a rather obvious one. Google is smarter than that.
