---- Google ignoring robots.txt and No index meta tags
- 3:54 am on Jul 18, 2013
It takes a long time for google to process noindex. I added noindex to a bunch of my pages over a month ago and they still are in the index.
You may want to go into gwt and remove them explicitly-- especially if you're dealing with whole directories that can easily be block-removed.
Here's a related thread that covers this topic over and over and over, until I think it finally made sense to most participants of the thread.
For a given definition of "made sense", at least. "I don't like it, I don't understand it, but I accept it as fact."
