    I also want this feature for my full not-just-a-blog site. My footer links to a "Site Map" page, and I'm trying to keep that page clean and useful.

    My purpose for a hidden page is to make a blog post's deep details available only through a link to the hidden page. Making the post longer inhibits comments, so I thought I'd off-link.

    I don't care if search engines trip over the hidden page, but in terms of site navigation, it's a "deep secret."

    The idea here is to have a WordPress core attribute that plugins can use to detect that a page should not be linked to or advertised anywhere, including search engines.

    It sounds like you just want the page removed from the human-readable site map. Most site map plugins can already do this. The page is hardly a "deep secret" if search engines can link to it.

    I think this is a great idea! Similar to soundclouds option that when a track is private, you can still share a 'private link' which gives only those who have the link access to the content. I would personally use this to give press people access to a press kit on 1 specific page on my website.

    Great feature. I vote for it, even though not many have since the thread started :(
