    If form is NOT embedded in a live website, does it then remain private and hidden from search engines etc.?

    Asked by jimazeki on November 14, 2016 at 11:37 AM

    Just want to confirm. I will be sharing the form with certain people via an email link and not embedding or linking from any public page.

    Yes, as long as the link to your form is not shared on any publicly accessible place, search engines don't know and don't index your form.

    Search engines will only index your form if they find a link on some publicly accessible place on the Internet.

    Only people using the direct link to your form can access it.

    Please let us know if you need any further clarifications.
