Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know that questions that are closed are not allowed to answer further. But are these questions visible to outside world? I mean are these questions can be searched from search engines like Google?

Yes, they are still visible to search engines as long as they aren't also deleted.

I made a request to change this behaviour and hide them recently, but that hasn't been acted on yet
