comment When will google report correct results with its fetch tool?
Also check manually by doing a site:example.com search in Google image search. Some times Search Console is a bit delayed, when you may have images indexed

comment How does Google find a domain with no links to it?
Google are also a domain registrar themselves, so I presume as a registrar they must have access to all the domains that have been registered.

comment Big drop in indexed pages (due to ssl?)
You need to add https as a separate property in search console, if you haven't already. I'm guess the screen shot is for the usual http version of the site. More info here: googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2014/03/…

comment Google excerpt shows only <img> alt, not normal <p> text
Interesting problem, what were you searching for to get that result? I see your meta description displaying. Did you recently add that?

comment What is this bot in server logs?
Yeah I found this, but presumed it wasn't the same bot. Why would some bot for an old Pokemon game be making upwards of 30K requests every day on a website? There are also similar bots with the same name on Git Hub github.com/dwbot/dwbot I don't think it is these.

comment Googlebot follows rel=“nofollow” links
In Google search console (webmaster tools) you can do a URL removal for entire subfolders. If all the pages you do not wanted indexed reside in the same subfolder/s and there aren't' pages within there that you do want indexded, you can request the subfolder be removed using the URL removal tool. As long as all the pages have the noindex tag they will be removed from Google a lot faster than waiting for Google to honour the noindex tag.

comment site move in Google WebMaster Tool
Even if you set 301s correctly and do a change of address in search console the old URLs can stay indexed for a very long time. Example, seomoz.com re branded to moz.com in March, 2013, yet there are still semoz.com URLS indexed and you can bet they did the domains switch correctly: goo.gl/s4kxUr

comment Hacked Sites duplicating website & Google seeing wrong cache
If you viewed Google's cache of our site, where it states 'This is Google's cache of: xxxxxxxx' its was stating the hacked domains, where the site was duplicated, and the cache looked like our site, but all internal links would be for the hacked sites. They hacked site were also ranking above our site.I actually cannot do a screen shot now, the cache has updated to state our site and the rankings have now comeback. Not sure if this was a manual intervention by Google or not, but they said they were looking into it.
