Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Lately I’ve been puzzled by a hypothetical scenario with regard to SharePoint’s indexing.

Consider that you have a bunch of WSS Sites named A, B & C. Now it is understood that the contents of A, B & C will get indexed in their own time.

But supposing a WebPart page on A had links to B & C. Now would the crawl follow those links to B & C, index the contents of those sites and then return to indexing the contents of A? Or would B & C just be queued and processed in their own time.

Secondly will B&C be indexed twice or would only their ranking be higher?

Any ideas anyone?

I would say that the web parts in A are only showing information from B, C.

So indexing of A will not follow those web parts down to B,C as the information itself is not stored in A.

It'll only index stuff that is stored in A.

Seems logical to me, Tariq.
