Marie - I think this makes it very important that you bring back the indication on the docs listing of those files that are published. Maybe a separate label/folder of published docs/spreadsheets?

" If you don't want your published docs to be crawled, then you can un-publish them by doing the following"
This contains a contradiction: if I don't want my published documents to be crawled, I should still be able to keep them published; by un-publishing them they are no longer published documents.Please don't suggest un-publishing as a solution where there is none!

As I understand it published docs are only crawled if they are "linked to from a publicly crawled webpage".
But of course there might be old links in cached versions of those web pages even if you were to remove the link now. I suppose the workaround there is to unpublish, copy the doc and publish the copy, that would have a different URL that is not linked to.

I think that's nice--an additional functionality. However, it would be good if GoogleDocs also gave individual documents the same functionality as an ordinary webpage to request no crawling.

At present I can't use my own CSS on Google Sites but I can use it in Google Doc, publish it and put it on Google Site in iframe. This Doc put in iframe is not crawled at present.
With this change this Doc will be crawled, therefore, for all practical purposes it becomes part of the web site.
Did I understand correctly?

Can you also add a search that shows which of users documents are published.
Right now you could have published documents. And a year later forget about them.
So we need to know which documents are published.
Looking forward to the new search feature.
|Re: Published docs will be crawlable soon||Gill||9/25/09 9:48 AM|
Yes, I think so - because the link to the doc in the iframe is in the code for the main web page, so the iframe doc is indeed "linked to from a publicly crawled webpage".

Good to know...this is big news and can potentially have a big impact for small businesses looking to maximize organic SEO. I haven't used Google docs yet, but now that I see pages will be indexed I am re-thinking my strategy going into 4th quarter. Thanks!! www.Twitter.com/720media

Hi - does this mean that documents inserted into my site will be searchable by the 'Search this Site' function? Uptil now anything inserted as a Google doc into the site has been invisible to this.
