    If I block guests from a forum, will Google robots still be able to find it and index it?

    If content is not available to guests, Google won't be able to access it.

    How come when I search google for topics for a forum like bhw, they show up, but when I click on the topic from google to read it, it says I need to register. How is this possible if the robots can't access the information?

    That's generally considered to be cloaking and is liable to Google penalizing you.
