msnbot ignores meta robots tag? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had many pages of my site blocked in the meta robots tag for about 10 months, however the pages are still in the live search index.

    Therefore I advise people to use robots.txt and not rely on meta tags.  Google also ignored those tags sometimes (though not to the extent of MSN).

    Now that I have blocked access to the pages in robots.txt, how long should it take for these pages to fade from the Live Search index?

    is this still a problem for you?
