How can i know How many and which pages, files of my site are crawl-able by search engines?

They are all crawlable if another page links to them. You can prevent certain web robots from indexing your pages with a robots.txt file, which they are supposed to respect, but even with one in place there are probably web robots which won't respect it. I know the big boys out there (Google, Yahoo, Bing...) will respect a robots.txt file, but there are probably smaller ones out there that may not.

is there any tool which can tell how search engine crawling my site ? – metal gear solid Jan 4 '10 at 5:50
If or how ? You can check your web access logs, most robots have their own special user-agent string such as Googlebot/2.1 ( (for Google). – John T Jan 4 '10 at 5:53
