did you implement a robots.txt file, i always pair them with the ROBOTS meta tag and have no issues so far!
I have several pages on several different sites where I did this when the pages were added and not afterwards. The pages still appear in the index. It's a great feeling when you see sale items from Nov, 2005 preserved forever despite doing everything you are supposed to do.
