Can this hide certain content from SE's

 4:10 pm on Mar 19, 2004 (gmt 0)

I want to know whether content between the
<noindex> and </noindex> tags will be hidden from SE's.

If it can't what is the use of it (sorry for my ignorance)

Can anyone help me.

You could do a reverse cloak. Basically you have the text you don't want the spider to see as an include into the page. Then when a SE spider comes in you just don't call in the include.

I wonder what googles policies are on omitted content. LOL.

this is quite an old idea to scam search engines like Google (was popular about 2-3 years ago). I think it would just get you banned with Google's new filters.

When people refer to the "noindex tag" in posts, what they probably meant was:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

That is what comes of people who don't know their tags from their attributes.

Here is a previous discussion on the
<noindex> tag...

Thanks for the speedy reply, but does these tags stop
search engines from seeing javascript and css seeing as javascript and css code is not liked by SE's

No, the tag is specific to atomz and is not valid HTML.

i've seen the following site using these tags
and obviously it does something for them

That tag used to be used by Infoseek, and is also used by some on-site search engines like XAV.
