I was having a "no one loves me" sortof moment there for awhile :( :( :( . . . :P
I'm seeing evidence of leeching from images ~ hotlinking, scraping. I guess there may be some sites where having images inventoried provides +>-. Just not certain for a few of mine. They're the type of images that I can imagine any number of sites would be happy to rip off and use. If they were a bit more specialized (not side appeal) then I might see more on the +++ side. (My kids were waaaay too cute . . before becoming teenagers . . :P)
FAQ, Privacy, Etc. -> Not really certain what they would add to a search engine's index. Pretty much the same on every site. Maybe I'm just being nice to the SEs? Not wasting bandwidth, too?
2. Disallow: /*?* -> Again, just a "nothing there for you to index from my POV" situation.
I'm not big on sculpting pagerank, link juice or whatever so none of the settings are for such purposes. Heck, you first have to have a bit of PR before you can even begin to worry about it . . . unless your thinking is to "gather all you can when starting out" . . . Hmmmm . . .
