Can a JSP page be "spidered" and indexed by a search engine?
Jeroen Wenting It can, usually. Anything that can be called and is not excluded is available for spiders. Whether the results of the call are usefull is something else. If the JSP needs information that is passed as parameters or in a cookie, the spider will usually have no clue about what to do with it (and thus might well get an HTTP 500 error as the only output).
