You probably meant to send this as a PM or an email to myself or Mike Roque! Or, you could have asked this question in the "About RAILROAD.NET Forum."

The short answer: Google (and other search engines) index the content of this site and make it available in their search results. Google indexes our posts because we are a good resource of factual, in-depth information. Plus, the format of our site makes it easy for Google and other search engine bots to find us.

Hope that helps answer your question!
