O Google usa palpites para encontrar páginas da web? - url, mecanismo de pesquisa

If I have a webpage (www.example.com/very_long_random_name.htm) on a site that"s already been indexed by google, will it ever be found if it has no incoming links?

Or can google find such unlinked pages by some other method?

No, it will not be indexed. At least in theory, that is. The crucial thing is that there are no incoming links, the fact that the name is long and random does not matter.

However, it is hard to be sure that it really won"t be indexed, since incoming links can come from everywhere and without your knowledge. For example some email that contains a link might get indexed (especially if one particicpant in the conversation uses a questionnable mail provider), or someone might post a link on some forum, etc.
