You can now use Google search to find Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) documents. SVG is an open, XML-based format for vector graphics with support for interactive elements. Google has made it its mission to organize the world’s information, so indexing SVG is a natural step.

SVG content whether a standalone file or embedded directly in HTML will be indexed. Do not get too overexcited though. The web is big, so it may take some time before they will be able to crawl and index most SVG files, but as of today you may start seeing them in your search results. If you want to see it yourself, try searching for [sitemap site:fastsvg.com] or [HideShow site:svg-whiz.com]

If you host SVG files and you wish to exclude them from Google’s search results, you can use the “X-Robots-Tag: noindex” directive in the HTTP header.
