Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
i.e. dev.mysite.com has the same PR as www.mysite.com
The dev site is not linked from anywhere or redirected. There are no 301 redirects. When you land on dev.mysite.com you stay on that site.
Any ideas why this might happen?
When I get a cache from google for dev.mysite.com it reads at the top:
"This is G o o g l e's cache of [mysite.com...] as retrieved on 17 Aug..."
I'll check server logs to see if it is being crawled.
I'm concerned about password protecting or excluding via robots.txt. What would happen if Google thought the password or robots.txt was coming from www.mysite.com?
The PR dev.mysite.com is showing is not correct; there is no way it could be that high. Plus the PR is the same on the internal pages. The PR is coming from www.mysite.com
