Here's something for you guys to chew on: While WW has been removed from Google's SERPS the pages are STILL IN GOOGLE'S INDEX!
"How do you know that?!?" you ask?
Because, I used the url removal tool 181 days ago, as it just so happens on the forum section of one of my sites.
I put in the robots.txt file restricting the bot from "/"
I used the url removal tool.
All SERPS gone, and even removed from the directory.google.com directory (an unexpected but understandable result). PR0 from PR4.
Changed the robots.txt file to allow Google access to / but nothing else.
180 days pass.
Yesterday my PR went back to PR4.
And ALL OF MY OLD PAGES ARE BACK IN THE SERPS marked as "Supplemental Result", but none of the new.
Google kept the old cache of pages, and has obeyed the robots.txt file, which demands that the bots stay away, but does NOT instruct them to remove the pages from their index.
Good Luck, Brett.
