Google and TextArea form field

Does Google spider the TextArea form field?

Does Google spider/appreciate the TextArea form field?

It seems to me that someone could stuff a lot of great keywords and/or keyword relevant articles into a very small TextArea form field.

Any thoughts?

Google has in the past, and may still, index options lists. It seems likely that they have indexed TextAreas but I have no current information.

It's an easy experiment. Just make up a word (or misspell it) and put it in a text area. Ideally, search for the word/spelling first to make sure there are not a million hits in, say, italian, first.

I just remembered that I have a TextArea on a form (for a product that's in beta). I can confirm that Google have indexed it.

Yeah, I'd recommend not stickying nakulgoyal any links, since he's just going to spam them anyway. Thanks for that, it's really appreciated. Lamer.
