You can create an instructable and not publish it - so only you can access it. I can't say if google would index it or not. As others say, pro accounts can make private ibles also...if it's not worth sharing, maybe instructables isn't the right site :D

frollard is right, save it, but don't publish. Google does not index these as far as I am aware.

I think the answer is "No, and why would you want to?"

The answer isn't no. Private (non-listed URL) I'bles are one of the features of paid ("Pro") accounts.

You can make a private instructable, but you would need to buy a Pro account. But why wouldnt you want to make your ible public?

I agree with orksecurity. Instructables is about sharing. If you want to keep it private make a website or just tell the people you want to show.
