Google search results
 
When searching for keywords on cfd-online using google, the result list is polluted with entries from a "test forum", e.g. :

http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums-tes...ge8&order=desc

Can you disallow crawling on that subdirectory?

We blocked robot crawling in this directory several weeks ago. Google still remembers it though. I hope it will soon disappear from Google. It is amazing how Google manages to find out URL's that are not linked to from anywhere. This is just a private test forum were we are working on a new forum software version (vBulletin 4). I'm sorry about the problems. It is my fault. I should have blocked robots before setting up the test forum.

I just submitted a removal request of the test-forum from Google's cache and search results. That should help speed up Google's amnesia.

Thanks Pete! Now it's just a matter of time :)
