Welcome to the forum.
You are referring to the Google website accessing your online help. I think it is only likely to do that if the help is accessible to anyone via the internet and is not behind a corporate firewall. I think you need to consider the desirability of doing what you suggest. The results that point to your help would be buried in the number of hits that Google typically returns. to get high ranking on your help topics against all the contenders seems a bit unlikely.
Is it possible that what the developer meant was the help having a Google type search?
To add to Peter's excellent advice, you may also want to look at the RoboHelp Server product. It has a search interface similar to Google and allows searching inside files (e.g. PDF, DOC) to which the help links. It is not everyone's cup of tea but it may be worth consideration.

Hello Mette_Nyberg -
Short answer: YES!
We use a Google search engine in our (custom) Web-based software. You can program it to index whatever you want. (Neat piece of hardware!)
Note that we block the "public" (Internet) Google search.
