Hi,

I have a page which don't want google index or archived.

Then will google crawl the links at this page?

For exapmle, this page is siteA.com/pageA.html and it include the links pageA1.html and pageA2.html, will these two pages pageA1.html and pageA2.html be crawled and archive, indexed by google?

(there will not put any <meta name=robots value=noindex> in these two pages pageA1.html and pageA2.html)

Thanks,

John

Yes. A 'nofollow' command would prevent that.

Google will not index the "noarchive, noindex" page and they will probably follow the links because you did not put in a nofollow.

But I would not be too surprised if they gave it a low priority, or if they threw it out before feeding the links to googlebot. There are a lot of hands in that code, and it would be easy to screw it up.

So they should follow it, but that doesn't mean that they will.
