    How about legal cases e.g. “members only” areas and such? What if mediabot indexes those and puts those pages into serps. This is just plain wrong!

  16. yeah and also

    it’ll be a while before google confirms this, but the number of adsense impressions significantly impacts your placement. i won’t say where, but we’ve done some tests, and shooting an URL to the top of the list for a specific search term via this method is pretty cake. Meanwhile, legitimate sites that have good content aren’t getting indexed by the bot at all.

  18. AdSense MediaBot Indexing

    Over a year ago I put AdSense on a site that was getting limited traffic and only had a couple hundred indexed pages. Being this site was a directory, I should have had thousands of indexed pages. Anyway, I added the code into a global footer and forgot about it.

    Then about a week later, when I was going over some SEO data I noticed my indexed pages had jumped to 25,000. All these new indexed pages had that global footer. Of course this led me to believe the AdSense ads had something to do with it.

    I think the adsense TOS prohibts running ads on password protected content. You might want to check if this is a concern for you.

    So, no more testing with AdSense code on the page!
    It only made sense (no pun) that they’d share the crawled content. It would also be awfully nice if the regular index gets fed into mediabot’s index. This way the ads on a page that was crawled before will show relevant ads even to the very first human visiting the page
