The files which are contained in Joomla's Admin Folder (and sub-folder)! Do they get listed in Google Search results ? or do we need to unlist them somehow (manually)? What about the Admin login page ? How to keep it safe, i mean anyone access the admin page directly (/adminstrator/index.php) how to secure that?
P.S - i have some custom PHP files (with JOOMLA CMS IMPORTED) in the root directory, will they show up in google search? Kindly, enlight me on that as i am about to upload my localhost website, i don't want to mess with GOOGLE :)
The output of your custom PHP files will get searched by any search engine that can find a link to them. Note I said output, unless your server is badly configured the actual php code will not be searchable by them.
If you implement Joomla default robots.txt (it's always installed by default), it defines directory exclusions for crawlers:
# If the Joomla site is installed within a folder such as at
# e.g. www.example.com/joomla/ the robots.txt file MUST be
# moved to the site root at e.g. www.example.com/robots.txt
# AND the joomla folder name MUST be prefixed to the disallowed
# path, e.g. the Disallow rule for the /administrator/ folder
# MUST be changed to read Disallow: /joomla/administrator/
# For more information about the robots.txt standard, see:
# For syntax checking, see:
