Google, please don’t close up the web

Update: Yes Google+ is indexable if your bot knows how to interpret JavaScript. I still think it’s a bad idea ; not only multi-million companies should be able to scrape the web.

Update2: Google Groups now accepts views in incognito mode. Are you listening Google ?

What have these two urls have in common ?

Both pages are not indexable. Google+ returns a pile of JavaScript in an HTML page, and Google Groups doesn’t allow you in unless you’re authenticated.

However, both pages ARE indexed in Google. Google+ was supposed to be a reaction to the closed Facebook world. How is that fair for the competition ?

Google, please don’t close up the web.

Update: still seeing the auth issues from time to time on Google Groups and other Google services.
