Google does not search all sites on the web.... only those sites that have paid extra with their hosting package to be searchable by Google. I have a family web site, for example, that I specifically did not want found by Google. The money I saved was more than the monthly cost of the web site itself.

Subject: [iBook] OFF TOPIC: web site question Is it possible for a web site to make their text unsearchable somehow? I ask because I stumbled across a web site with a friend's name and a quote from them, but when I searched on google using text from the quote and their name, nothing came up at all. I tried again using the subject of the website and the person's name, but nothing came up. Is there a way to look at the code to see what is going on? Is this a usual practice? Thanks in advance.
