I added a disallow /dir/ and then
went to 'crawler access' and clicked on 'Remove URL'.
Shortly after Google got the new robots.txt I noticed that all pages were gone from the index and it was shown as removed in the dashboard, all in a day. Now I removed the robots.txt, resubmitted a sitemap with their urls, and added a noindex, to let Google grab and see that they are really to be gone. Probably an overkill, but I'm losing money
