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!

Really? Are you referring to the meta description? Mine are "indexed" just fine. Perhaps you meant this is no longer a ranking factor?
BeeDeeDubbleU The description tag has not been indexed for a loooong time. They tell you this in websmaster guidelines.
Just noticed on today's refs: About 40% of my Google visits come from non-US, never seen that before, my site is as American as apple pie
That's not what it says. It says "meta descriptions" won't impact your ranking...
If clickthrough rates can affect ranking and the meta description can affect clickthrough rates, one could conclude that the two are closely related. Meta descriptions can affect ranking.
