Google Using Registrar Data to Locate New Sites
Story Text:

Barry posts an excellent summary of this thread talking about Google indexing parked domains...

So what is it? One member replies that "Google must be using their new domain registrar status to add more domains to their database." What shocks me is this statement, "This is not only happening to parked domains, it's happening to domains that aren't registered and have never been registered."

I have noticed time and time again, that I would register a domain, make sure not to link to it anywhere, and all of a sudden Google would index it.

This seems to happen when visiting a site using IE with the Google toolbar. I don't know if this is a case here, not linking to a new domain seems to no longer be the only precaution taken to keeping Google out.

If you are doing something

If you are doing something that interests Google and they want to see your site, it is very hard to stop them. If you don't want google seeing your site you better use robots.txt and also password protection to keep a google employee from giving you a manual visit.
