Blekko just doesn't get it:
we ignore noarchive and do nothing with it
Webmasters should be able to opt into Blekko without allowing Blekko to display cached copyrighted pages.
Every serious search engine supports NOARCHIVE, and there are many valid reasons to not permit cached pages to be in a search engine.
They claim NOARCHIVE is used by spammers, when in reality they're going to allow SCRAPERS to grab anyone's content that permits Blekko to cache their pages.
We can block scrapers from our sites but we can't block them from taking cached pages elsewhere without controls like NOARCHIVE.
Besides, displaying the entire page without permission, ie ignoring NOARCHIVE, is a blatant copyright violation, snippets are fair use, whole pages are copyright violations, wonder how they'd respond to a DMCA notice?
