Mystery with Googlebot and IT-Austria
Posted on:June 01 2005
I placed some quite private page on irrlicht3d.org. I placed it in a subdirectory which didn't exist before. Nothing links to that page. At least nothing I know of. Two minutes after I had uploaded that page, Googlebot came along and indexed it.
WTF? How did it do that? I mean, I'm no web expert, but how did googleBot find there?
I immediately added a no-archive meta tag to that page and moved it into another directory.
The even more scary thing: Just two hours ago, someone from it-austria.net (what is that, btw?) came along to the page again and read it. How did he get there? The referer log doesn't tell anything. So now I added a .htaccess password. This will help, but I still would like to know how this was possible. Hm.
