Is G allowed in WebmasterWorld members' profile?

Well, it could add another brick in the wall of exposure, even if not a brick but a small pebble:)
I never posted in profile any link, so just wondering about it.

Yes, it is. Or possibly no, it isn't. But I assume what you really meant was "Does G de facto index members' profiles?". The answer to that form is Yes, it does. I just checked. My "home page"-- which of course is nothing of the sort ;)-- comes right up, with my WebmasterWorld profile as source.

Further investigation confirms that G does honor the "noindex" directive on this particular page. (If you've snooped, you know that it's there for an unimpeachable reason.) But this may not be universally reliable.

in the old days you had to make a certain number of posts before you could put a url in your profile - or until it showed publically... for obvious reasons

i imagine this is still the case.

Thanks perfectly rephrasing my question!
Indeed still the rule.

I think it's the other way around. You have to have a certain number of posts to see other people's url in their profile. Or possibly both. If you're a Forums grownup everyone can see your url; if you're not, only the grownups can.

:: looking vaguely around for Brett or someone like him, who presumably knows for sure ;) ::

Anyway, both of you have more posts than me. So if g### can see my profile it can definitely see yours.
