This originally came from Bing WMT error messages but I wonder if Google is treating it in a similar way.
I've been using "noarchive" meta tags on my content pages for about 2 years now, mostly to eliminate "cache surfing". Bing is showing an insane amount of errors in my account citing that "noarchive" robot meta tag would trigger it. Despite that AFAIK this tag should not be affecting rankings, I wonder if just the sheer number of these tags and/or resulting error messages may be construed as some negative factor about my site.
What's the modern circa '13 thinking about <meta name="robots" content="noarchive"> ? Do you guys use it? Why? Why not?
