Most of the sites have elements and pages kept deliberately out of Google as I believe what you don't let Google see is almost as important as what you do
That is an interesting point. Just this week, I recently came to the decision to remove Google Analytics from one of my site that got hurt by Panda.
I am exploring the path that you had already traveled on. It might be better to not trust Google and give them full access to monitor all the information on my site.
My next step to is to figure how to SURGICALLY deny Google from probing specified webpages. I do not want to do a noindex header on those webpages because I do want Bing and Yahoo to index those pages while denying Google access to those same webpages.
Do you have any suggestion on how to tackle this?
