Yes, the pages are blocked by robots.txt, and webmaster tools confirms this by showing an error for each i.e. "URLs restricted by robots.txt". The problem is they have been blocked for well over a month, maybe two, they aren't dropping out of Google's index, and I can't remove them with the URL removal tool. Does anyone know if they will just go away by themselves, and if so, how long it will take? There are more of these garbage results in the Google index than actual valid pages on my website, which can't be a good thing.
