1784: 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.

"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."

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).
