We will only crawl outwards by following Gemini links found within `text/gemini` pages. If you return a `text/plain` mimetype for a page, Gemini links within it will not register with GUS (though the content of the `text/plain` page will itself get indexed). +geminispace.info does not crawl capsules behind Onion links. Textual pages over 10 MB in size will not be indexed. -Please note that GUS' indexing has provisions for manually excluding content from it, which maintainers will typically use to exclude pages and domains that cause issues with index relevance or crawl success. GUS ends up crawling weird protocol experiments, proofs of concepts, and whatever other bizarre bits of technical creativity folks put up in Geminispace, so it is a continual effort to keep the index healthy. Please don't take it personally if your content ends up excluded, and I promise we are continually working to make GUS indexing more resilient and scalable! +Please note that there are provisions in place for manually excluding content from indexing, which maintainers will typically use to exclude pages and domains that cause issues with index relevance or crawl success.
