Indexing by Google

September 26th, 2006


Q: If a site has no backlinks except internal links, will Google add it to the index? Or add it to the index and not assign PageRank?

A: A site with no links to it from outside websites must not be a useful, link-worthy site. Such sites, not surprisingly, tend not to get indexed by Google, or by Yahoo! for that matter. If they do for some reason get indexed, they don’t get a PageRank score and donĂ¢??t rank well at all in the search results.
