I saw today that Googlebot got caught in a spider trap that it shouldn't have as that dir is blocked via robots.txt I know of at least one other person recently who this has also happened to.

1608: new post   GoDaddy and their new "Selective DNS Blackouts" policy
GoDaddy has a new policy (as of July, 2011) that lets them block DNS packets from high-volume DNS servers. Any domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting are affected (any domains with 'domaincontrol.com' in them). [br][br]Two such sites that are affected include a niche search engine that is in development, and a project that keeps track of statistics on domains. Sites like these that are blocked by GoDaddy's new policy will be unable to include domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting (except domains owned by GoDaddy, which are exempt from the Selective DNS Blackouts policy).

1609: new post   Having Google +1 button on a page will override robots.txt blocks!
Now this one is interesting.I just found this answer from a google employee in one of their forum threads. The +1 Button is only intended to be used on pages that contain all public content. By putting the button on a page we're taking it as an indication from you that this page is public content. This means that we will fetch your page even if crawler directives indicate otherwise.

1611: new post   Google Webmaster Tools Now Sees Subdomains As Internal Links
"Today we're making a change to the way we categorize link data in Webmaster Tools. As you know, Webmaster Tools lists links pointing to your site in two separate categories: links coming from other sites, and links from within your site. Today's update won't change your total number of links, but will hopefully present your backlinks in a way that more closely aligns with your idea of which links are actually from your site vs. from other sites."

1620: new post   Google traffic drops to ZERO. Penalized or pandalized?
I read quite often here that people should not just jump to conclusions upon loosing some Google referrals. That your site is more likely to be algorithmically downgraded rather than penalized outright. Yet it's hard not to think of being penalized when the traffic drops to ZERO, (as in zilch).
