How to remove spam from search results and robots.txt syntax question RRS feed

  • Question


  • Do to a wordpress hack, 1000s of pages of spam had been indexed by live.com. We have removed the spam(410) and updated the robots.txt to try to prevent this - but how do I get the pages removed from live.com?

    Also, all the spam is in format of

    /?xxxxx

    In the robots.txt we've added disallow: /?xxxxx but this is not standard syntax so I am unsure if MSNBot will understand it. Any other suggestions?

    With google and yahoo we were able to use wildcards in robots.txt.

    Thanks
