Google is no longer following my robots.txt file. It has indexed hundreds of pages that I have disallowed.
Generally it's best to make any changes when SERPs are stable, never within an update due to panic!

@Andylew have you found that pages have been dropped from the index and then come back?
Strange, the cache date for 'new pages in the past 24hrs' is anywhere from 2-3-4-5-6 to a week old.
Google I/O 2010 kicks off today
ideally there should only be one particular set of results.
-Results perceived as "fresh" and (possibly) more relevant. If I get different things at different times when I search, I may search more often just to see what else I get.
-In a sense this effectively makes the internet larger, which might benefit Google in the long run.
As a search engine, Google strives to offer the most relevant results.
His opinion is that it's my fault. Of course
Another way of looking at this would be to think of Google as judging not where you deserve to rank, but how much traffic you deserve to get.
