Can users here suggest how long will it take for Google to completely de-index all those urls generated by <snip> plugin? Also, the main url doesn't even appear in first 10 pages
I think we need more information here. Are you saying that the plugin has generated many URLs? If so, were these URLs creating a duplicate content on your site or thin pages on your site?
Now that you got rid of plugin, what is happening when these URLs are requested? Are they returning:
a) 404 Not found
b) 410 Gone
c) Redirecting 301 (or 302?) somewhere, if so, where?
d) Still returning the page (200 OK), only this page is now not interlinked from within your site
e) If they are returning 200 OK, are they using meta robots noindex directive?
I have started getting a plethora of errors in google webmaster (and rightly so).
What kind of errors are you getting in WMT?
Also, when you say "plethora of errors", how many? Hundreds? Thousands? How many URLs did this plugin create?
