Block Google & Delist Your Web Site In Google By Accident? Many Have Done So!

Jeff Atwood, co-founder of Stack Overflow, posted on Twitter the other day that he once checked in a robots.txt that deindexed all Stack Overflow content from Google. In which, Matt Cutts, the ex-Googler, responded that “to be fair, a lot of people do this,” in order to cheer him up a bit.

Honestly, it is very common – I see it all the time in the Google support forums. I won’t say that I have ever done that but I will say it has been done many many times by savvy developers.
