Are links to my content within my Kapost instance searchable by Google or another search engine? 

No. Kapost doesn’t index links, so they can’t be searched by Google or any other search engine.

However, if a link from Kapost is added to an external site that’s indexed by a search engine, the link is indexed on that site. 

  • Sites that are indexed don’t include intranet sites, but they do include anything public.
  • If a piece of unpublished content in your Kapost instance is surfacing, this means that something external of Kapost that’s indexed has a link to the content. 

Additional Notes:

  • There is a file size limit of 5TB for individual files that are uploaded to Kapost.
  • You can read more about the technology Kapost uses to generate document previews: Cloud Convert.
