Interesting! Thanks for that.
Just in case this entailed a penalty, I have also submitted a reinclusion
request this morning:
As part of my collaboratory research, I share output of my experiments
among my colleagues. I put these under my domain. Only recently it
slipped my mind that crawlers might reach it sooner or late because
there was a link (it took about 10 months to reach the experiments). As
a result, tens of thousands of pages which contain numerical results got
indexed. As soon as I noticed the jump from ~25k to ~80k pages in the
datacentres (over the period of just days or weeks), I was shocked and
immediately added the following to my robots.txt.
That is where all of these newly-added pages lie. I hope you can remove
the penalty (Google referral dropped by over 80%).
Many thanks in advance,
Roy S. Schestowitz
