I'm embarrassed to say that I forgot** that the ad they mailed me
contained the password for the webpage, so IIUC that means even if
google comes up with the webpage, it wlll still require a password,
which no one else will have. I suppose that makes it safe for me.
I apologize, and I hope you all don't feel I wasted too much of your
**I only used the password once, then kept looking back at the page
for 3 days. I don't think I would have forgotten about the password
10 years ago.
In addition to passwords, a webmaster can tell search engines to *not*
crawl certain web pages via a file called robots.txt
If the dealer's webmaster has done this properly, that may be why you
haven't seen your page show up in Google.
