Why is it that items that I and others put on the IAA Forum appear on the GOOGLE information . I see my queries and articles go onto Google when I thought it was a more private forum.
Anyone can access the Forum including the information gathering programs from Google, Bing etc. so that is why when you do a search in Google etc. for cartridge related items, IAA Forum threads that contain information related to your search show up.
I may be mistaken but I believe the reason for this is because the IAA is registered with the IRS as a nonprofit educational organization and as such the Forum is made available to everyone to read. Participating on the Forum requires registration and password entry.
I often find it an easier way to search for things in here than using the sites search system ;-)
