I don't have any speakers on my PC. How does Google crawl the pages without any links?
I'm guessing that they crawl the folders that contain other pages.
How can Googlebot crawl and index pages that don't have any links to them on my website? I find each day two or three pages in the index that don't have any links to them on my site. The pages are generated by the search field of my website.
I thought I must share this good video with netbuilders users . If it is not displaying here than check this video from this link - [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS0oHYZafTQ"]Google Indexing Video[/ame] .
In video this guy mention that if you have created one keyword and it is getting famous than Google will start crawling profile links and other inside links which are not indexed but comes in searched surrounding keywords . I didn't understood whole method but senior member of Netbuilder may explain it in better way ...

I believe that the bot will also crawl contents of folders that have no links. So for example, you have a site "www.thesite.com/mystuff/". The bot would crawl the "mystuff" folder. Link popularity decides whether the contents of the folder gets indexed and appears in the results.
Chrome is another distinct possibility, but I only use that to test web pages for proper rendering.
Google has a long history of gathering information without your knowledge or permission.

To add to all the above options, wordpress pings pages automatically...this might also cause G to crawl that page and index it..
Yep, the apparently "unlinked" pages, are in some way. So, that means, if you don't want your pages to be crawled, then password protect them
