comment Why am I getting cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi coming up when I browse my webpage?
@T9b: If you're running your own nameservers, you would edit their config files. If someone else is hosting your DNS for you (more likely), then you'd typically use their config panel. For more specific instructions, first find out which DNS software / host you're using, and look for its documentation.

comment How to disallow HTTP 302 redirects from another site to mine
If you told us more about why you want to disallow this traffic, someone might be able to suggest an alternative way to accomplish the same goal.

To add to @w3d's comment, you can ask for your accounts to be merged using this form (linked as "contact us" from the bottom of each page here).

comment Make Google index over 90,000 user profiles
If you don't actually track when the profiles have been last modified in your database, I'd strongly suggest leaving the <lastmod> field out, instead of using a dummy date like in this example code. At best, there will be no difference; at worst, lying about when your pages were last modified can cause crawlers to miss changes (if the date is too old) or waste time inefficiently recrawling pages that haven't changed (if it's too new). Of course, the best option would be to actually store a last modification timestamp for each profile in the database, and report it in the sitemap.

There may not be any answer, other that "you can't" or "nobody knows how". But you're right, let me edit that into my answer.

comment How do I find when an URL was first indexed by Google?
@Stephen & Zistoloen: That is not generally the date when the page was first indexed by Google. Based on some testing, the date shown via this method appears to be either pulled from the content of the page (if Google thinks it sees something that looks like a "published on" or "last modified on" date) or, if no such date is found in the content, based on the date when Google last observed a (substantial?) change to the page. Of course, if the page was never changed after its first publication, this might happen to be the same as its publication date, but there's no guarantee of that.

It's quite possible that the answer is "no". Google may not even store this information (since there's no particular reason why they'd have to), or, even if they do, they may not expose it to third parties.

comment Does Google ignore robots.txt
Agreed. Except for the misleading first sentence pointed out by @unor, this would be an excellent answer.
