Google has quietly Google+Docs/thread?tid=0ca72389c9b26ef4&hl=en”>announced that Google Docs documents that are published will soon be crawlable. This means if you have published documents as web pages, or used the publish/embed option for a document, and it has been linked to on the web, it can be indexed by Google and other search engines.

Publish as Web Page "This is a very exciting change as your published docs linked to from public websites will reach a much wider audience of people," says Google Employee "Marie F," on the Google Docs Help Forum.

The change does not apply to documents that are set to "allow anyone with the link to view (no sign-in required)." Any concerned users, who do not wish for their published documents to be indexed can un-publish them by:

– going to the "share tab"

– For documents and spreadsheets, choosing "publish as web page". For presentations choosing "publish/embed"

– Clicking the button that says "stop publishing".

Google notes that Google Apps users may find that they’re unable publish documents to the world if the admin of the domain has disallowed publishing outside the domain.

The company said they will be launching the change in a couple weeks. Keep an eye on Google+Docs/thread?tid=0ca72389c9b26ef4&hl=en”>the help forum for an update on when the change goes live.
