    Anyone got a clue if search engines are indexing the text inside HTML forms (between <form> and </form> tags)? It's kind of importaint for me to know ...

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty certain that Google, at least, doesn't. I have several pages that are only linked within the <form> </form> construct, and none of them appear in Google whereas all other on-site pages do. I can't speak for other search engines though.

    Yes, Google does index the text inside the form tag. I have forms on most of my pages and the descriptions when they appear in Google are partially taken from inside the form tag.
