    If i create a private node, will it appear while searching in google?

    No, Google will only see things that guests can see.

    Thank you, but some members will see it so?

    That is regardless, google search is not going to give people a snippet of and direct people to something that they aren't explicitly allowed to view.

    (Consider google a guest user and then you understand why anything you want indexed needs to be viewable publicly)

    In my case, all of our forum nodes are private because we are using XenForo for internal company discussion only. (We've actually discussed placing the forum behind a firewall as well.)

    So, in our case, is there a way to integrate more comprehensive/granular search into our forum?
