The bot knows of the existence of the URL, but (theoretically) not the contents.
But it doesn't apply when the bot gets redirected or finds a link to that page from another site, in which case it may access it directly
when the bot gets redirected
I unblocked my css and js files a week or so ago now and all my SERPs have suddenly started to slide! - I am not using any custom blackhat, just WordPress.
OK so my WMT link count has gone down too in this time - but I can't help feeling that this change may have something to do with it.
what would they be able to do with/learn from our other analytics programs that run with js scripts?
