    Can Google index images that are on the server, but not on the website?

    If I have images in my website files, on Godaddy's servers...can Google index those images?

    Let me first day that I'm no Google expert but your question seems simple enough so I'll give it a shot. Google searches the Internet and if your files are in the Internet Google (and others) can and probably will see them. The real question is if your content is relevant? I can't imagine that any search engine would just start serving up results for random files on a server? That being said Google image search is rather complex so you could very well see results from images that are merely on a webserver and not connected to a website. 

    ...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.
