    In most of the cases Search engines are not different from regular users. Search engines cannot go anywhere that a regular user cannot go. If we have a password protected area on our website that cannot be accessed without a login and password then the search engines also cannot see it.

    If you password protect your pages, only visitors who know the password will be able to view the content. Search engine robots won't be able to access the pages. Password protected pages can have a negative influence on the user experience so you should thoroughly test this.Au

    pages that are password-protected will not be accessible to the search engines. Search engine robots typically can't log in to crawl pages.
