  • Archives of private forums and Google

    As I understand it, my archives can be indexed by Google. That's OK.

    and.... users can view only the archives for the forums that they have permissions to access... that's OK too.

    BUT
    That means that *all* the archives are physically there (including the private forums not accessible to certain user groups) and can therefore be indexed by Google.

    Is that right?

    If so.... then I will need a method of making specific forums not be archived. Is this possible.

    Thanks

    The archives you the same usergroup permissions as the forums. Therefor is a Guest cannot view a specific forum, the search engine will not be able to either.
