    If I have a very simple html page with just say a title tag and an h1 tag in it, and below those tags i have a php script that redirect the user to another page on my site, will googles spider index the info on that page and then follow the redirect? Or will it see the redirect and not index the info on that page at all?

    well no, I want it to index the content on that page, but I want users to be redirected to another page when they visit it.

    another question to, do the spiders go through every file under your domain even if they are never linked to?

    I wasnt sure if it would just go through the directories in my structure and just look at all the files.

    If you do not have any links to the other pages the spiders will not
    follow to your sub pages. If all you have is a title tag and an H1 tag
    you're page isn't going to rank unless you are looking to rank for some very long tail keyword.
