Unless there is a direct HTML link to the page then they will never be indexed.
Search engines don't know anything about the files you include in the page.

The include file is rendered as if the html was there in the first place.

Rendering of pages by script is a one way function

master page + include page [+ include page [..]] = rendered html page

Open in new window


Spiders index the rendered html page only - there is no way for the spiders to work out how that page was constructed or where the component parts came from - all they see is the html as it is sent to the browser - and that is what they index.

Things like this
<!-- #include virtual = "GoogleAds/tallSkyScraper160x600.asp" -->

do not show in your HTML, they are processed at the server.
