that dog won't hunt.
(see my post above)
Yeah, I made the same mistake I was trying to correct in lorax's post! And that statement is in direct conflict with my initial comments in that same post. Zoiks!
What I mean to say, is that you need to use the noindex until it's removed from the index and Google has recorded it as a noindex, then block the crawl.
But yes, blocking the crawl is for blocking the crawl (saving bandwidth), and noindexing is for noindexing.
And I guess the verdict is still out as far as whether or not to use both. Ergophobe said that you can
Cause ergophobe is an idiot and types faster than he thinks. In the past month I've lectured two clients on exactly why what I posted above is wrong and why phranque is right. I should know better!
