    Other raw data on server


    In terms of SEO, is it harmful to have raw data (other projects HTML file or local HTML files) on our server? Because the spider or crawler crawls my site... Is it unhealthy in terms of Search engine rankings?

    So it would be great,If anyone can help me out in this...!

    It's not "unhealthy" (although it can be harmful; depends on the content).
    If you don't wish for the files/folders to be crawled, use a robots.txt file or robots "noindex" meta to prevent it.

    In other words: if the spiders don't know where the "raw" files are, then it cannot hurt
