What appears in search engines results ? (3 posts)

    If I choose to "Perform redirect for non-members" to the WordPress Login Page, will the restricted posts appear in search engines' results ?

    Even if the content cannot be accessed, I wonder if posts' names will appear in Google or not ?

    Google (or any other search engine for that matter) will see the same thing as a non logged-in user. Unfortunately, there currently isn't any secure way to have google see the post content, but have users be redirected since it would be easy to spoof user agents etc. to pretend that you are google and not a normal user.

    It might be possible to add a feature which would show a fairly trimmed down page to search engines, maybe only containing the post title and excerpt. Is that something people would be interested in?

    It would be great if search engines could see the post title and excerpt!
